Cooling device suggestions? And DAS question.
Hello! I'm usually over in the DLR area on the Dis, but I figured I might get a better response in this area for my question, since it's not really park-specific.
I have MS, and one of my worst symptoms is the heat intolerance. Unfortunately, DH is a teacher, which means summer is vacation time for us, and going a different part of the year isn't really feasible. We went to DLR last summer for our honeymoon. Historically, I'm a rope-drop-until-closing kinda gal at DLR, and every other trip we've done, I've been able to handle such a schedule without any issues. However, on our honeymoon this last July, it wasn't fun. I mean, of course it was *fun*, it was our honeymoon and we were at Disneyland! But, we took frequent breaks because I would get too overheated, and I was miserable the whole time. The mister fan just wasn't enough!
So, we're going to be at DLR again this summer, for our 1-year anniversary, and I'm committed to making it a better trip for both DH, and our 10-yo DD who hasn't been during summer. Anyone have any suggestions for cooling devices to look into before we go, that would work well for touring the parks?
Also, a question on the new DAS system. I know I don't need a card for not doing stairs, but what about for steep inclines? Specifically, I'm thinking of Space Mtn at DLR, where you walk up a pretty steep incline, and then right back down again, to get to the loading area. At the top of that, I'm about as winded as can be, which starts the heat intolerance, which also affects my asthma. Wondering if this is something where I'm just supposed to go to the exit and tell them what accommodation I need, or if I need a DAS for it?
