I bought both misting fans and stroller fans on Amazon before we went to WDW in August 2009. There was just no better way to cool off for our whole family...even the babies! They were very reasonably priced if I remember, and it was great to be able to read the reviews of customer who bought/used them.

The easiest way to do this is to Highlight the tips you want and then press [ctrl] c. Then open up a word document and prest [ctrl] v.

(Otherwise known as Copy and Paste)

Warning... You may have to mess around with formatting once its in word. If you go back a few pages (Can't remember which exactly) somebody recently compiled most of the still applicable tips into big chuncks easier to copy.

Hope this helps!

Ice water at the CS and snack shops in the parks. Water through the soda fountains tastes great, and since I drink water 90% of the time it's a big savings.

Breakfast in the room. I much prefer eating a small breakfast in the room (bagel and pb or protein bar) and heading straight to the parks. I gat a little more sleep time and save money as well.

Don't think that because you think you're a hotel snob you won't like Value or Mod. I like nice hotels/resorts, but I stay at my share of Hamptons or La Quintas, so I tried All stars, AoA, and PoFQ. I loved POFQ and while not my first choice I had no problem with ASMu. I now always look at all levels of stays and decide on which level meets my needs and wants the best.

Yeah, I've done this on some. But I was hoping for an export option. Oh well.... back to reading I go.

They also do this for POP (the only value resort they do this for). But I haven't been since AoA opened. Do they also deliver to AoA, or is it still only POP?

Wink Disney Tips

Love all the tips! Just wanted to add a few more. Love Frog Toggs. Purchased mine at Walmart. They stay cool so much longer than any other item.

Be careful which cooling fans or misters you buy. I bought mine from Walmart and after using them only one day they broke. We ended up buying the ones sold in the parks and they were much better quality. Still working one year later and bringing them for our upcoming trip.

I agree ponchos are a must. I would not recommend the ones from the dollar store. As soon as we attempted to put them on, they tore. We purchased the ones in the park and again they were much better quality. Also, if on the plus side they fit better.

For, those who burn easy or are on medication which increases susceptibility to burn, I recommend bringing a hat. I ended up burning my scalp once in a water park and it was very painful, and I have a very thick hair. There also a sunscreen by banana boat for scalps, but not sure how it works.

They have great little battery-operated fans in the camping section at Target. Very powerful airflow, only about $3, and compact. Coleman brand. They last forever! I prefer them to misting fans when it's really humid.

Thanks for the tip about the fan. At three dollars, I will give them a try.

I bought little battery operated fans at bjs this weekend - they had disney characters - toy story, cars, tinkerbell and the princesses- and they lite up. They were $3.50. Not a bad deal.
