When it comes to a vacation to Walt Disney World in the summer, you need to be prepared for the heat. We have the top ways to beat the heat this summer when you head down to Walt Disney World.
1. Prepare Ahead of Time
Before heading down to Walt Disney World and the summer heat, you want to make sure you prepare ahead of time. This means making sure you pack the right items to help you beat the heat. When looking at clothing, make sure you have light, comfortable clothes that breathe easily. Don’t pack lots of dark, cotton shirts as you will quickly regret that choice.
Bring cooling times such as a portable fan or cooling rags. Although they might not look the coolest, they will definitely help you feel cooler. Umbrellas are also great for blocking out the sun. When waiting outside in a long queue like Slinky Dog Dash, there isn’t a lot of shade. Having your own umbrella can really help block those harsh sun rays.
Finally, consider purchasing hydration packets. It is super hard to stay hydrated right now with the regulations regarding eating and drinking in the parks. Bringing some hydration packets can help you stay hydrated on those super-hot days.
2. Take Breaks
One of the major keys to beating the heat in the summer months is to take breaks. This can be super hard to do when you have spent so much time, energy and money on the trip; however, investing in some breaktime will pay off in the end. Allow yourself to head back to the resort during the heat of the day. Cool off, take a shower and relax in the air conditioning. It is amazing what it will do for everyone’s spirits.

3. Relaxation Areas
If you don’t want to head back to the resort, then we highly recommend looking into the variety of relaxation stations in each park. These areas are designated areas that allow you to relax and take a mask break. During the heat of the day, allowing some time for a mask break is extremely important. Find these areas and take some down time to help yourself rejuvenate.
4. Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated is always important during a trip to Walt Disney World, but the heat of the summer makes it even more important. Remember all quick service locations will have free ice water. Take advantage of this freebee and keep yourself hydrated. As you can’t walk around and eat and drink, schedule some specific time to get a snack and drink water. This might seem silly or tedious, but it will be key to keep everything hydrated.
5. Use the Pool
A great part of the summer heat is that it is a fantastic time to take advantage of Disney’s amazing resort pools. Beat the heat in the afternoon by enjoying the resort pool. Cool off, have a drink or snack and enjoy some time cooling down in one of Walt Disney’s amazing pools.
6. Jump to Air Conditioning
Another great way to beat the heat in the summer is to hop from air conditioning to air conditioning spot. To help make sure you aren’t outside the whole time you are in the parks, schedule in time to visit those rides, attractions and shows that are inside. In Magic Kingdom, check out the Enchanted Tiki Room or Country Bear Jamboree. In Epcot, see one of the films in China, Canada, America or France. These are ways to get out of the heat without having to leave the parks or stop experiencing attractions.
7. Schedule a Meal
If you are looking for a delicious way to get out of the heat, book some dining options. Disney has some great table service options throughout all four parks. Book a meal for lunch or supper to allow yourself to get out of the heat and refuel your body. Even though you can grab some quick food options and find a shady place to eat, having a scheduled break in the air conditioning is a smart way to beat the heat.
These are a few of our tips for beating the summer heat at Walt Disney World. We hope they will help you have a fantastic time during your vacation this summer.
