    If you are visiting the parks, and it is a very hot day, where would you go to cool down?

    Is there somewhere that you have found that you can sit in the cool with a drink and bring your temperature down.

    Finding places to sit, even in the shade, is often quite difficult. We don't really have a favorite place to grab a cool drink at MK, but at DHS we hit the Tune In Lounge. At EPCOT there are any number of places round the World Showcase that one can duck into a cooler environ for a drink or just to browse. Again at AK we really don't have a favorite place.

    Ellen's Universe of Energy in EPCOT - Always good to get our of the heat, or the rain.

    The People Mover in MK - a lovely view of the park, and a nice breeze

    The Dawa Bar in Animal Kingdom - a cool drink, a bit of shade, and usually some good conversation

    Hmmmm - Hollywood Studios...I'm drawing a blank....

    Hall of Presidents is a good cool napping place lol. If you sit me still long enough, I will fall asleep

    Ellen is also a long, lovely nap

    Tune in Lounge for a drink

    If its too hot, avoid AK like the plague

    At MK, it used to be the little hidden cinema. Is that still there?
    Or the PeopleMover, the train or the covered area near the Dole Whip stand.

    In AK, the Dawa Bar. I love that place!

    At Epcot, Spaceship Earth or several of the Countries back areas, such as Japan.

    At DHS, the waiting area outside the ToT.

    I notice you both mention Ellen. Just ask Donna, I almost always fall asleep on that one.

    Haven't given DAWA a try yet. Is it an indoor or outdoor bar?

    The Dawa bar is outside. It's covered. It's by Tusker House

    Becca, is that the little coke cola hut by the bridge? We love that place.

    Now don't be a hater, heat never enters into it. We have only gone in late fall, winter or early spring. Usually (as mentioned in other recent threads) the problem was where do you go to get warm???:lol:

    Dressing in cool clothing that doesn't cling, and is soft. I can't stand clingy itchy clothes. :( Sometimes hats, depending.

    We move in and out of the shade as we walk through any park. EPCOT and AK are our favorites (there's news). :lol:

    No really special place, just in and out of the heat and sun as the spirit moves us.

    Canada, France, China - their movies are nice for a break and cooling off. Oh, and Norway too. I think we are the only people who like the Norway movie!

    Yeah, I think it is downright bad manners to skip the movie that follows the ride as I have seen many folks do!

    usually i can get thru the heat doing my favorites until after lunch...by then i have had enough...so if i am at

    MAGIC KINGDOM -- Hall of Presidents, to Country Bears, to Tiki Birds, to Mickeys Philharmagic...

    EPCOT - Ellens Energy, Spaceship Earth, The Land, then any countries that have movies...Canada France Norway just to get out of the heat.

    Studios - The Little Mermaid, Animators Tour, Great Movie Ride

    AK - not so great...when the heat is bad AK can be a challenge... if the rides are long...time to :surrender: and go to the resort or DTD and chill out.....
