It may be almost Fall, but the Southern California sun is still quite warm! While visiting the Disneyland Resort it’s important to stay cool, so here are some tips to do just that:
Enjoy “bright suns” in Batuu while still staying cool. There are many areas in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge where you can cool off. In Millennium Falcon: Smuggler’s Run, you can start cooling off in the cavernous path to the Main Hold of the Millennium Falcon. Once you reach this famous space, you can hang out around the Dejarik (chess) table for a few minutes before taking the controls of the fastest ship in the galaxy toward adventure and, ah, yes, a galactic breeze.
As you roam Batuu, head over to the Milk Stand to enjoy a refreshing Blue Milk and Green Milk – these frozen concoctions are sure to cool you down. For crafty libations, I recommend Oga’s Cantina. This watering hole is where weary travelers of all ages can join together to refuel after a long day of adventuring. Hang out with DJ R-3X and sip on one of the many out-of-this-world non-alcoholic or alcoholic beverages. Just be sure to make a reservation to visit the cantina before you go!
Around Disneyland park, guests can stay cool at guest-favorite attractions like Splash Mountain, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Haunted Mansion, Peter Pan’s Flight and many others. And of course, chill out with a Dole Whip Float from Tiki Juice Bar or The Tropical Hideaway, a Mint Julep in New Orleans Square or a delicious old-fashioned ice cream at Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor.

Head to Hollywood Land and experience the newly opened 3D movie musical “Mickey’s PhilharMagic” in the Sunset Showcase Theater. In the show, Donald stirs up some musical mayhem while you get swept into the fantastic world of classic Disney animated musical sequences, including “Beauty and the Beast,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Peter Pan” and “Aladdin.” Fun fact: Some scenes are super breezy!
You can also take refreshing flight on Soarin’ Around the World, get lightly drizzled or even soaked on Grizzly River Run, go on a journey with The Little Mermaid ~ Ariel’s Undersea Adventure, join a thrilling mission with Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!, test your illustration skills in Animation Academy or take a break as you’re transported to Arendelle during the theatrical performance, “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion” in Hollywood Land.
Disney California Adventure also offers amazing cold treats, like the lemon soft-serve at Adorable Snowman Frosted Treats on Pixar Pier, the hand-dipped ice cream bar at Clarabelle’s Hand-Scooped Ice Cream, Memory Refreshers from Bing Bong’s Sweet Stuff and even a delicious fruit smoothie from Schmoozies! in Hollywood Land.
