It’s SUMMERTIME, people! OK, well, summer doesn’t officially start til the end of June, but c’mon — most people think of summer starting after Memorial Day, right?
We know Florida certainly does! Those hot summer temperatures are already hanging out in Central Florida, especially at Disney World. And, now is the time when we know a tonnnn of you are going on your summer vacations, because the crowds are ramping up in the parks, too. But, there’s still a lot of fun to be had, so let’s take a look at the BEST things to do at Disney World in June!
beat the heat
As we just said, it is HOT in Florida, especially in June! You have to be prepared for the heat, especially if you’re not used to it. Oh, and don’t forget about that lovely southern humidity (do NOT underestimate the humidity!). So, one of the best things you can do this month at Disney World is to be prepared for it to be hot, and find ways to cool off.
When it comes to being prepared, there are a ton of things you can do! Make sure to stay extra hydrated, wear sunscreen (and reapply it!), wear protective gear like hats and sunglasses, wear breathable clothingand take breaks in the air conditioning when you can Do NOT push yourself — you don’t want to be passing out at Disney World.
There are some great things you can bring with you to help with all of this! Cooling towels, portable fans, sunscreenand insulated water bottles are great items to keep with you to stay cool. The heat can also cause some annoying problems like blisters and chaffing, so bring some band aids or mole skin with you for blisters and a chafing stick to help with that issue.
