    coming to wdw in october 1st week how is the weather then will we be able to swim what kind of clothing this will be our first trip

    HI Timothy,

    The weather should be quite lovely in October.  The average temperature is 75 degrees in October; the average temperature in September is 82 degrees.  Since you are traveling the first week of the month, the temperatures should be closer to the September average.  Swimming should be fine, too.   

    When we've visited during the fall, we've worn shorts and t-shirts comfortably.  We did bring along light jackets for mornings and evenings as a precaution in case it was a little chillier.  We also packed rain ponchos (which can also be purchased at WDW).

    I love visiting WDW in the fall.  The extreme heat has dissipated, and it's nice to get a little extra sun with winter around the corner.

    Thank you for the question; please let us know if you have any more questions.
