    What do you do to deal with the orlando heat or do you just love it all?

    Last time we had those water fans but they didnt really do that much

    :p015: That's the only way I cope with the heat, to pop into an air-conditioned room every now and then.
    When we were there in extreme heat I bought a parasol in Epcot and carried that.
    I always have an ordinary little fan with me and a pack of cooling wetwipes. A damp cloth carried in a sealed plastic bag is great too.

    Drink lots of water, wear sunscreen (you definitely can't manage if you have a bad sunburn), take breaks, and try to do outside stuff early or really late and then inside stuff during the heat of the day.

    What everyone has said.

    I like to use the little fans (about $1 at Walmart) without a mister to help move the air when I'm stuck in a queue or someplace where the air just isn't moving. The misting bottles just add to the humidity--and Orlando already has plenty of that!

    If I could find a traditional hand fan at a reasonable price, I'd probably use that rather than a battery operated one. But they're all $5 and up for one that won't fall apart with the first use. Lots of labour in those little things! My mother had a collection of fans and I have some that I use them at home when it's really hot. I just won't risk losing them at WDW.
