    We are coming in November (1st-9th,) what does the weather usually look like for this time of year? pants..long sleeves? or shorts and tank top weather, never been to Florida before so unsure what to expect..THANKS

    Hi Chrystal!

    Thank you so much for sending your question my way.  I love visiting Walt Disney World in the fall, so I think you're going to have a blast!  

    Considering the time of your visit, you may be able to catch the last "Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party" and the first "Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party" at the Magic Kingdom.  Dates aren't available yet for either of those parties, so keep an eye out in the coming months.  Plus, the annual International Food & Wine Festival at Epcot should be still going on as well during your visit.  Yum!

    You asked a really good question about the weather.  During that time of the year, it's been my experience that you'll see dryer weather than the rest of the year, but it's always a good idea to pack an umbrella or other rain gear for Florida.  As for temperatures, I think it's safe to say that you'll experience warm days and cool nights.  When I visit Walt Disney World in the October or November timeframe, I usually end up wearing shorts and short sleeve shirts in the day.  In the evenings, I occasionally find the need to change into long pants and a long sleeve shirt.

    If you get thrown for a loop and end up not packing enough of the clothing you need for a particular weather pattern, there's always plenty of options in the shops that can help you supplement your wardrobe!  (I think I always subconsciously under pack so I have an excuse to buy some new gear!)

    I hope that helps and I hope you have a wonderful visit in November!
