    Hello, Scott!

    What a wonderful time of year to be staying at Walt Disney World!

    When we've traveled to WDW from mid-to-late December through mid-to late January, we've noticed that, like many other places, the temperature really does vary from year to year.

    According to, the average high for December is 73, with the average low being 52.  However, I've been there when it's closer to 80 each day (loved it!) as well as when it was 36 (not so great).  My suggestion is to keep an eye on the weather forecast and be prepared with layers.  When there was an unusual cold snap, we had tucked thin gloves into everyone's jacket pockets, and everyone had a hat and heavier coat since we traveled from the North.  If you don't need it, you don't need it, but at least you'll have it just in case!

    Similarly, if the temps. rise up to 80 or higher, you'll want to have T shirts and shorts for the warmer hours of the day and a lightweight jacket / pants for cooler mornings and evenings.  We've learned to always have long pants, shorts, T shirts and a zip-up, hooded jacket for each person in our party, since the mornings and evenings can be cool, with really lovely (but warmer) afternoons.

    Regarding a resort map of Disney's All-Star Movies, you can find this on one of my favorite unofficial website,  If you're not sure how to navigate the site, just google "all star movies map" and select the link from  You'll be taken a page where you can choose a large PDF or a small PDF (very useful!)

    Have a wonderfully magical visit to Walt Disney World! Be sure to send more questions as you think of them, too! I'd love to help!
