Tips from Disney Moms Panel for a Summer Walt Disney World Vacation

Summer is a popular time to visit Walt Disney World since so many kids are off of school and ready to enjoy a break with their families.  Thanks to Disney Parks Blog, we have a look at some of the great tips for visiting Walt Disney World during the summer from the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  Take a look at some of these amazing pointers below:


“The key to having a great day at the parks on a summer day is staying hydrated!” exclaims Eean. “I always place an order with an online grocery delivery service and have cases of bottled water and sports drinks delivered to our Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Every morning before heading out, we load up our drawstring backpacks.”

“We head back to our Disney Resort hotel shortly after lunch for some much-needed rest and relaxation. A dip in the pool is a must-do for my kids. With unique water slides and water play areas, the pools at Disney Resort hotels are perfect for families traveling with kids of all ages. After a swim, we all enjoy a nap in our air-conditioned hotel room (even mom and dad). Once everyone is well-rested, we go back to the theme parks for more pixie-dusted adventures!”

“I can’t say this enough,” says Lynne C. “I think the Water Parks are the hidden gems of the Walt Disney World Resort. If we’re visiting during the hot summer months, we’ll always try to spend at least a day (or more!) splashing away at either Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, my pick for kids who are older or more experienced swimmers, or at Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, which I prefer for little ones and kids who aren’t very strong swimmers.”

“I like to plan a table service restaurant for lunch on each of our theme park days. This is the perfect way to enjoy a fantastic meal and some air conditioning during the hottest part of the day,” she explains. “Everyone in the family can cool off, get off their feet and fill their bellies, so we are refreshed and ready for more magic in the theme park! Plus, if you visit a Character Dining meal for lunch, you can even meet some of the Disney Characters on your ‘must-do’ list while you eat.”

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
