1923 Main Street: The Disney Travel Podcast

The Florida heat isn't the main thing you have to worry about when visiting Walt Disney World in the summer: we share what you need to know, plus the best of Disney World and Disneyland Pride month food and festivities.

Show Notes

Tips for Summer Vacation at Walt Disney World (Hint, it's not the heat you have to worry about)

More people seem to be planning summer vacations to Walt Disney World this year, including many who have never before visited during the summer months. Here's what you need to know and what to watch for:

It's not so much the heat (which can be intense), but it's the rain. You would do well to make plans and reservations accordingly. Be careful about how much outdoor activity you plan between the hours of approximately 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. 

It's also hurricane season at this time of year and they're predicting a higher-than-average number of named storms this year. So it's more important than ever to keep that in mind.
