If you’ve ever been to Walt Disney World Resort during the summer months, you’re undoubtedly familiar with how hot Florida weather can be this time of year.
Despite the warm temperatures, however, Disney Parks fans flock to The Walt Disney Company’s flagship property all summer long — but today, one Guest was reminded how important hydration can be in Central Florida’s subtropical climate.
Reddit user u/orgazmoe took to the social media platform to share a photo of himself in the back of an ambulance with the caption:
The most expensive ride at Disney. Drink your water!
Other commenters weighed in with well wishes and insurance advice, and the original poster confirmed that “Disney paid for the ambulance ride.”
He also seemed to have recovered from his dehydration.
