Keeping Your Cool at Walt Disney World Resort

Keeping Your Cool at Walt Disney World Resort

It’s summer and that means it’s hot and humid. And if you are vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort, there are many ways to beat the Florida heat.

With two water parks and nearly 60 intricately-themed pools spanning over 47 square miles, you and your family may find a different water activity to exhilarate your senses every day of the year, not only during the hot months.

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park features the water coaster thrill ride Crush ‘n’ Gusher, as well as the brand new Miss Adventure Falls! And one of its main attractions is a two-and-a-half-acre wave-making pool that pumps out some of the largest man-made waves in the world – so large, in fact, that you can even take surfing lessons.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is sure to keep your family icy cold with the spine-chilling thrills of a northern ski resort, but in the hot Florida sun.

Disney’s water parks are just the tip of the iceberg. You also can enjoy a variety of exotic resort-based water adventures depending on which Disney Resort you choose to call home. From the two-and-one-half-acre Stormalong Bay at Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resort, to the 11,000 square-foot Uzima Springs pool at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, you are certainly drenched with ways to beat the heat at Walt Disney World Resort.
