Central Florida can be very hot and muggy in the summer! Almost all Disney planners recommend a mid-day break from the theme parks to go back to the room and recharge your batteries.
We always do this if we are at WDW in the summer.
Some people hate to leave the parks once they are there, but being there from early in the morning until closing has been known to make not only children, but seasoned NCOs cry. Summertime hours in the parks can run from 8AM the 11PM or later. That’s just too much to take at one time.
So, sometime after having lunch in the park bail out and head back to your room. Get out of your very sweaty clothes, hit the pool, or just get a nap. I recommend both!
Then put on dry clothes and head on back to the park. You’ll have a decisive edge on those who have stayed there to tough it out.
The only down side of this strategy is that wearing two full sets of clothes per day you’ll accumulate laundry at an increased rate.
So unless you packed for a month you’ll need to do laundry sometime during your stay.
Shades of Green has two laundry rooms, one in each of the guest wings. Both have all you need to get the job done.
Washers, Dryers, and the soap machines take credit and debit cards as well as ApplePay.
Each laundry room has soda and snack machines, a TV, microwave, plus chairs to wait on.
The last time we used the laundry room at Shades, Dad took the kids to the pool and Mom had some quiet time in the laundry room. Sounds odd but after a hectic morning with the kids in the parks she enjoyed the quite of being by herself with a good book.
