Living in Florida for so long, you soon realize that it is hot almost every day! Most of my closet is comprised of short sleeved shirts, skirts that breathe, and sandals! When summer comes around, it may be so hot at the parks that it may seem impossible to wear a cute outfit all day…
But I’m here to show you that it is NOT impossible! Here are MY tips and tricks on how to Disneybound on a hot day and still look cute all day!
- Before you go out and buy new summer clothes, look through your closet and see if you have any solid color short sleeve shirts, tank tops, or tube tops! (Basically, any breathable top) Then, see if you have any short/midi skirt or shorts that you can use to create the colors of a character!
For example: Winnie the Pooh is yellow and red. I found a yellow shirt and a red skirt in my closet and used it to color block and create a Pooh Disneybound.
Outfit details below!
- Once you know what character you are bounding as, find accessories that really make the character come to life! It could be a pair of Mouse Ears, a headband, some earrings, a purse, a belt, etc.
For my Winnie the Pooh outfit, I used my basket purse and a pair of Winnie the Pooh ears to complete the look! The basket looks like one of Pooh’s honey pots or bee hives, and the ears have a bee and some golden honey that really finishes the outfit off!
- Make sure you wear comfortable shoes that won’t hurt your feet when you walk around the parks or make you feel like your feet need air. Most people wear sneakers to the parks in the summer and while it may be comfortable, I personally feel hot and like my feet are suffocating in closed toe shoes. (But that is just me)
My go-to are always comfortable sandals that won’t give me blisters and match my outfit perfectly!
- Now that you are ready to head out the door, make sure you grab a small fan, a small towel, and hair ties or hair clips! These are my theme park essentials on a hot day. Using the fan while walking around avoids excessive sweating and if you do sweat, you have a handy little towel. When you give up because it’s way too hot you can put your hair up! Trust me, I know this from experience!
While spending a full day at the theme parks in the summer, make sure you wear sunscreen, go in and out of the A/C whenever you can, and most importantly: DRINK WATER! Most people don’t realize that you can get FREE cups of water throughout ALL the Florida theme parks! Any place that sells food and drinks and has a soda machine can give you free water cups whenever you ask for them. Our personal favorite is Starbucks because usually they have a water dispenser with the cups right next to it so you don’t have to wait for someone to serve you the water!
