    These are all fantastic tips. Disney also provides free ice water in a cup at any location that serves fountain drinks we take advantage of this often

    I find the towels that you dunk in water, ring out, and wear around your neck to be helpful. I wear them on long summer runs and have recently begun incorporating them in my Disney day. I get huge sweat stains anyway, so I don't mind tucking them under my shirt and getting a few awesome looking water pools on the shirt surface.

    I thought ice cream on a hot day can make you sick to your stomach?

    GOOD suggestions, should have tried these at Food & Wine last year in Epcot. The day we went was the hottest :arghh: F & W we ever attended, so conditions were not terrific ;)

    Interesting. I find that the less ice cream I eat the more disturbed my tummy gets.

    Another way to beat the heat is to have your man servant constantly wave a palm frond at a rate of 5 Hz, through a vertical range of 20-30", approximately 14" from your face.
