4 easy ways to beat the heat at Disney World

Disney World

With summer quickly approaching and temperatures beginning to rise, spending all day in the Disney theme parks can be exhausting.

Here are the four best ways to beat the heat and cool down during your Disney vacation:

Water parks

The Walt Disney World Resort is home to two exciting and unique water parks that are definitely worth the visit.

Both water parks are chock full of thrilling water slides, relaxing lazy rivers, waves pools, and sandy lounge areas that will not only help you cool down in that infamous Florida heat but transport you to a watery world of fun.

Home to one of the world’s largest wave pools, Typhoon Lagoon is a tropical paradise retreat with sandy beaches and exciting attractions such as the roller-coaster-like, Crush ‘N’ Gusher and Miss Adventure Falls, the longest ride in Disney Water Parks history. Typhoon Lagoon is also the home to my favorite lazy river experience on Disney property — I could spend an entire day lounging there.

You can also sunbathe and splash around Disney’s other water park, Blizzard Beach. Blizzard Beach poses itself as a ski resort that has melted away into a watery wonderland. Guests who are looking for thrills can travel up to Mount Gushmore and experience extreme water slides including one of the world’s tallest and fastest water slides, Summit Plummet.

Resort pools

If one thing is certain about visiting Florida during the summer, it is that you’re going to need to spend some time in the pool.

The Walt Disney World Resort is home to more than 25 themed resorts — each possessing their own unique feature pool as well as several additional quiet pools and children pool areas.

Trust me, these feature pools are totally worth diving into. For example, one of my favorites is The Lost City of Cibolo pool area at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort (pictured above). This enormous area boasts a massive Mayan pyramid, cascading wall of water, a water slide, hot tubs and playground area.

Another standout is the three-acre Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Between the zero-entry sandy-bottomed pool, lazy river, and massive water slide, this pool experience honestly feels like a water park.

Indoor attractions and entertainment

So when you aren’t soaking up the sun at Disney’s water parks or pools, chances are you’re in one of the theme parks. Although many of the attractions and entertainment are outdoors, there are plenty of indoor options in each park that are out of the sun and into the air conditioning.

Many of the classic attractions at the Magic Kingdom such as The Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and, my personal favorite cool down attraction, Walt Disney’s Carousel of Progress, are perfect for visiting on a hot day. It’s a great way to relax and enjoy some of the old school attractions that you may not have experienced in a while.
