It is important for you and your family to stay hydrated in the hot Florida sun. Sunscreen is essential while visiting the parks but so is water.
Did you know that you can get free ice water from all quick service restaurants? Add a drink powder packet and you have a tasty way to cool off. You can even use your snack dining credits to purchase a soda or bottle of water. Ask for an extra cup of ice water, wet down a bandana or small hand towel and use it to cool yourself and the kids.
Fresh fruit is always available at all Disney Parks. Fruit is full of water and its sugars help your food cravings and keep you hydrated. Many fruit choices are a snack dining credit. There is nothing better than a cold pineapple spear from Aloha Isle in the Magic Kingdom.
Temperatures can reach into the high 90’s during the summer months. Disney has set up water misters and water play areas throughout the each of it’s Parks. New Fantasyland offers young guests an opportunity to cool off in a circus themed water play area in Casey Jr. Splash “N” Soak Station. And watch out for spitting camels in Adventureland. Just remember to reapply sunscreen after enjoying these water features.
