Many months of the year, the heat and humidity at Walt Disney World is almost too much to bear. While Disney does a decent job of having many of the attraction queues inside and air conditioned, there are still times during the heat of the day where you just want to sit down, relax, and have the kids entertained while you “rest your eyes” and cool off.
Here are our four favorite attractions to beat the heat of Disney:
Magic Kingdom: Walt Disney’s Carousal of Progress – Take a trip back to the past travel to the future with Uncle Orville! This 20-minute attraction is just the perfect length to beat the heat and will have you singing, “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow”
EPCOT: Ellen’s Energy Adventure – YES, Ellen DeGeneres! This 45 minute, sit-down attraction will take you back to when the universe was formed and teach you all about Energy. This is a must-do to recharge.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios: The Great Movie Ride – This reimagined ride is a great way to beat the heat and take a trip through the movies. With timeless classics like The Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, and Indian Jones, you will truly enjoy this 22-minute break from the sun
Disney’s Animal Kingdom: Finding Nemo The Musical – One of my all time favorite attractions at Walt Disney World. Help Marlin and Dory find Nemo in this 35 minute musical! You’ll be singing Big Blue World, the rest of your time at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
