Will a Minnesotan Melt in August?

Completely off topic, but I just need to say this, I LOVE your profile picture. It’s the cutest! Don’t you think @LTinNC82 ?

Thanks :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: my trip is in a week so I figured it was time to upgrade from my “letter” profile picture. Now I’m just hoping I get my matching magic band in time!

One thing we noticed when our kids were little and we took afternoon pool breaks was that the time spent in the pool (in the sun) wiped them out! Like, after the pool everyone had to take a 2 hr nap if we wanted to go back to the park. I haven’t heard anyone really talk about this, so it may be just us, but something to consider to maybe make your afternoon break much longer than you planned.

Thank you for the advice. Since we have a long trip we’re going to adjust and change pace as we go.

To rope drop AK and HS from Poly would you recommend car or bus?

We’ll have a rental car for our trip.

The bus is always cool.

But then we’re not big fans of driving/navigating WDW.

Experiment. :blush:

When I rope drop I usually go with an Uber or Lyft, but if I had a rental, I would probably go that route. Serious question, are you (or whoever is the driver) going to be drinking? Or want to​:joy:. Might be something to consider. Actually, that’s why I usually go with an Uber or a Lyft.:beer:

Definitely not in the morning. If we drink we’ll take Disney transportation.

Just be careful and aware if you start to feel heat exhaustion. I say this as someone who grew up in GA and also lived in FL awhile. Lots of AC places in WDW to duck into if needed.

Made it to the Poly today. Does anyone know if you can listen to the Enchantment music from your room? We couldn’t seem to find it.

Stopped for Tonga toast before rope drop. Overestimated our appetites and ordered two for the family.

Current view ahead of us for Fantasyland.

YES! Feet up the wall for 15-20 minutes each night helps tremendously!!

(It’s just what it sounds like. Lay on the bed (or floor - either works) and scoot your butt up to the wall, putting your legs straight up.)

What time did you get to RD for this position?

This. :+1:

Or if you have such a thing as an extra pillow, stick it under the mattress about where your knees would be.

I’m a Texan and after my June and August trips to Florida this year, I’ve decided to limit my Floridian travel to winter season. But if you prefer and take breaks and go easy you can still have a good time. I just much prefer my time there in the winter. I may live in this heat (it’s hotter but drier here) but I stay indoors all summer long unless I’m in the pool.
