First up on our list to stay cool is a portable fan. Florida’s summer heat is no joke. Invest in lightweight fans to keep cool while navigating the parks. We recommend the LINFOX Neck Fan, a portable ultrathin bladeless neck fan with a rechargeable battery. It’s the perfect fusion of lightweight, seamless comfort, and trendy style.

The next essential item is a poncho! Be prepared for sudden downpours with a reusable rain poncho. If you want to save a few dollars, you can skip the disposable ones sold at the parks and opt for a compact, foldable poncho that you can easily stash in your bag.


Keep your body temperature in check with cooling towels. These stay cold for hours, offering a refreshing escape from the heat, especially in Animal Kingdom with its limited air-conditioned areas. We like the U-pick Cooling Towels for Neck and Face, Soft Breathable Chill Ice Towel.

Another essential item for your day of fun at the Disney Park in summertime is a great water bottle to keep you hydrated all day long. Our favorite is the O2Cool Mist and Sip Misting Water Bottle. This very cool water bottle has Mist ‘N Sip Function! It’s a squeeze bottle with misting feature to cool drinks, and won’t spill! Perfect for a hot day at the park!


Some additional tips for the parks during the summer time:

  • Bring hats with wide brims to shield your face and neck from the sun.
  • Consider using cooling misters for an extra refreshing boost. Disney parks do sell adorable misting fans!
  • Pack quick-drying, breathable clothing like moisture-wicking shirts and shorts.
  • Remember to wear a good sunscreen and bring aloe vera.

Even more tips to beat the heat like a pro!

Lunchtime Escape: During the hottest part of the day, avoid the sun and recharge with a delicious sit-down meal served indoors. Enjoy the cool air conditioning while fueling up for more park adventures.

Mid-Day Pool Break: After lunch, head back to your resort and take a refreshing dip in the sparkling pool. Relax by the water, soak up some shade, and cool off before returning to the park feeling rejuvenated.

Cool Down with Thrills: While at the resort, consider taking a break at the hotel arcade or hopping on some air-conditioned dark rides (think Pirates of the Caribbean or Haunted Mansion) inside the parks. Enjoy these spooky or swashbuckling adventures while escaping the midday heat.


With this packing list and a little planning, you’re all set to conquer the summer heat and have a magical Disney adventure!
