Disney Tip of the Week

I needed to amend this title. Last week I put tip of the DAY and I meant week. So, sorry for all of you perfectionist out there who were secretly making fun of me because of my gaff.

Anyhoo......here's your tip......use sunscreen.

Seriously. No joke and I know that it sounds so basic, but you would not believe the amount of people who don't use it. I don't care if you don't like the scent or the feel or the time it takes to use it. USE IT. You will regret it. Yes, you'll regret it later on, but even more, you'll regret it during your trip. If you get a sunburn while at Disney World (especially if it's at the beginning) you will be MISERABLE.

Not only do you need to use copious amounts of sunscreen, but you need to apply it to every inch of skin that could possibly be exposed.

Put it on your legs, both back and front. The sun reflects off of the pavement and can burn the back of your legs. Put it on your arms, both back and front. Put it on your face, back of neck, EARS, any scalp that shows (for those of us with thin hair, you know what I'm talking about), hands, fingers, ankles, feet, toes, etc.....Go at least 3 inches up under your shorts line and your shirt line. You never know when you'll be sitting in the sun and your shorts hike up. Or you want to roll your shirt sleeves up. Or take your hat off. It should go without saying that you pretty much need to slather sunscreen on your kid(s) before they even get dressed. That way you won't miss any spots. That's what I do for light of my life. Only one time has she ever gotten a sunburn and it was so slight, she didn't even peel. Thank goodness we weren't at Disney World at the time. Since then, I don't take any chances.

Like I said last week, I'm starting you off slow and with the most important pieces of advice at first. It'll get more Disney related as time goes on. I promise!

Anyway, have a good Wednesday!

the best invention ever is that spray on sunscreen. makes the job so much easier.

Mama Dawg

I haven't tried that yet, but I hear it's great. The old kind that comes in a tube is fine with me. It doesn't bother me to apply it but I know it bothers a lot of people.

Ooh, this will be fun for me to follow along as we prepare for Disney. Only 11 months to go!

I can give you hints any time you like. Next week will be more Disney centric.
