Agree 100% stay away from the Minute Maid frozen lemonade I made the mistake of eating 4 because it was so hot just made me thirstier and sick to my stomach way too much sugar. The wife kept saying drink water as usual she was rightSomeone mentioned Gatorade because of the loss of electrolytes from sweating. I urge you to be very careful with sweet drinks, candy, soda pop etc. 9 times out of ten when people get sick to their stomach on the bus it's from consuming surgery snacks in the Florida heat. Also coffee will dehydrate you.
I agree that staying hydrated in the Florida heat is super important, but I caution that you can drink too much water.I've talked about drinking a lot, but seriously, DRINK. Drink before you leave your resort. Drink on the bus. Drink at breakfast. Drink at lunch. DRINK. You'll be sweating so much, you probably still won't have to pee (TMI, but I pee like once a day when I'm at Disney! I sweat it all out!)
Seems like these single-bottle packets are just what the walker ordered...I agree that staying hydrated in the Florida heat is super important, but I caution that you can drink too much water.
The day we were leaving, after a 10 night June trip a few years ago, I woke up sick and super dizzy.
Called my mother-in-law, who is an ER nurse, and she said, " you washed out all your iums - sodium, potassium, magnesium, etc."
Started drinking Gatorade and felt better, but it took 10 days to get my head straight.
Now when we visit in the summer I bring 3 cases of Powerade and two cases of water.
No soda (I don't drink that much anyway) and no alcohol (ditto)
Some people rent scooters because their knees or feet can't handle all the walking. My mother usually rents a scooter for the afternoon. In a previous post I mentioned that in some days we can walk 30 kilometers a day. That is a lot for her 69 year old joints.Wrong! The out of shape people will just rent out the scooters thus conserving energy
I just didn't like mine Nick, we did get one for each person one year, I hated having them on my back but I'm not a "backpack" person . My husband and older son did use theirs for a couple of trips.Camel pack on your back with icy gatorade - or water.
Keep you cool and you have liquids all day. We have been using them for years now - - can't go without it.
A camel pack is a light backpack that has a liquid filled bladder and a hose that you drink from.
Seriously - - I do not know why more people don't use them. We never have a problem at security.
I hate to break it to you, but in the FL humidity, those don't work. Evaporation is what cools you off. If the water and/or your sweat isn't evaporating readily, the addition of extra water won't help. There will be an instantaneous cooling from the ice in the water, but that's really it. After that you're just hot and wet.Bring some of those spray bottles with fans. They’re super helpful, but Disney charges a ton for the ones there.
