If you've got an upcoming trip to Walt Disney World and are dreading the summer heat, here's a quick tip: Take a misting fan.
Prior to your trip, make a quick stop at WalMart. Go over to the Paint Department and grab a misting fan. They're about $7 or $8 - a great deal compared to the $18.50 you'll pay for it at Disney.
Pack it into your suitcase (or throw it into your Disney Fed Ex box - see Post #3), and off it goes.
Once you're ready to head off to the parks, fill it with ice water. Simply mist and/or fan yourself throughout the day to keep cool.
The kids will really enjoy it, especially when standing in long, hot lines. Every time our daughter got cranky from the heat or long lines, we would hand it over, and she loved misting herself - it was like she was a different child! We enjoyed it too!
It can be a lifesaver when the heat exhaustion sets in.
Helpful Hint: Fill it up with ice and water each night, and place it in your room fridge. That way, it will be extra cold for the following morning.
Happy misting, and don't forget to drink lots of water! Staying hydrated is key!
Until next time, remember to keep the mouse in your house.
