    We will be at the Disney World from the 12/12 - 12/19. Looking at the weather forecast the high temperature on Monday 12/13 will be 45 degrees. Is there one park that would be better to attend on the colder day?

    Danette, I have been checking out the Florida weather forecast as well since I leave in just two days!  Yikes, what happened to the warm and sun and my plans for a little pool sitting!!!

    I certainly have more experience with the parks and what to do on a hot summer day then a cold one but will give you my thoughts about parks and weather.

    EPCOT and Animal Kingdom parks are large and very spread out with lots of open spaces.  If the day is cold and windy these are the places I would avoid.  Traveling from one attraction to the next will take longer and you can find yourself out in the elements more then you might wish to be.  Hollywood Studios and the Magic Kingdom are more compact with attractions closer together so when you are moving from one to the other there are plenty of options to get out of the weather. Both parks will have outdoor rides such as the Stunt Show and Indiana Jones at the Studios and Big Thunder Mountain, Dumbo, Aladdin, Jungle Cruise and others at the Magic Kingdom.  None of the parks are especially optimum when it rains but I have done them all in the worst possible conditions and have great stories about the fun we had despite mother nature!

    Let's just keep hoping the sun decides to get a little warmer before we both head to Disney!
