Wicking clothing is also sold for golf and tennis. I think almost all of the men's golf shirts are now sold with some kind of high tech sun protection and wicking.

The big thing is to stay hydrated. In the hottest part of the day, 11-4, plan something that is air conditioned. The worst part of that time is about noon to 3, so it's a good time for an ADR, indoor rides/shows, swimming or napping. Early morning and evening after 6:00 PM will be the "coolest" times of the day. All the parks are lovely after dark.

We typically avoid Disney (and, really, most of the outdoors) throughout the summer, but we'll be there the first week in June. I'm already panicked about it.
Posts like this make me think I am really going to regret this upcoming August trip lol...

And pictures like this...

Looking forward to reading more tips from everyone.

There are also products like this: http://www.theemsstore.com/store/pro...FchM4AodiWwAIQ that you might want to consider. I don't have any experience with this type of rig so I can't tell you how well it works.

Good luck and have a cool trip,

Thanks for this - got me looking at some options - I think I may want to try. Sorry OP I don't have any experience with them yet but may be someone else will chime in.
