Not been here for ages due to working 13-14 hr days then sitting in bed with work!
we have booked a last minute hols to disneyworld orlando in sept when it will be apparently 27 degrees!
We have been in april when i'm sure it was about the same even though the internet says 22.
my question is would you carry in this heat? And would a solarweave be best? I love carrying but don't want to spend a fortune if everyone is going to be hot and bothered.

I went toCorsica a few weeks ago and it was around 27-32 degrees. (Far too hot for me!!) I took a woven wrap and a (normal) connecta, no pram, and it was fine.
I found my wrap a bit cooler than the connecta, but I think a solar weave would be great on holiday.
Have you done back carries? It feels far cooler when they're on your back. A muslin between any bare flesh is great too.

I don't have a Connecta to compare but when it was 30odd a few weeks back I was carrying in a woven wrap which I found fine. I tend to use carries that have fewer passes if she wants to be on my front or just a simple ruck on my back. I have a linen blend wrap which feels cooler too. Either way, I'm sure you'll be fine. You could always get a Solarweave to take away and re-sell when you return, they hold their value pretty well.

I carried Zoe in Orlando in similar temperatures in a Kari Me. We wore very little but it was fine. I would have preferred a mei tai style carrier as it would have been cooler and have already bought a solarweave for when we go to the Caribbean in January.

I live in a hot country (in the summer anyway) and I just use the solarweave for shirt periods if I need to. We do get hot and sweaty between us but it depends how much walking you will be doing and if you can take little breaks somewhere inside with aircon!

A cotton or linen wrap tied on a ruck (I tie Tibetan as it feels more supportive, but also cooler) is great in the heat.

I'm confused, what's the issue with wraps & cleanliness ? How are they different to other slings ?

My guess would be if the tails trail on the floor whilst you're getting sorted and tying. Never bothers me to be honest!
