    First time at Walt Disney World, how is the weather in December? Me and my two children will be at WDW the week of Christmas.

    Hello, Jean!  Welcome to the Moms Panel!

    The funny thing about Florida weather in December is that you can be in shorts during the day and back into pants and layers of sweaters in the evening.  I would highly recommend taking jeans or running pants with a short sleeved shirt.  This way, you will be comfortable during the day and, instead of having to carry around pants and having to change, you will be able to just slip on a sweater during the evening hours.  I always have my boys tie their sweaters around their waist.  I would check the weather forecast for the days you will be in Disney one week prior to your departure.  This is always a big clue as to what you should pack.   I also carry thermal tops in my backpack incase it is a bit cooler.  These type of shirts do not take up much room and can easily be changed into.  I never take a trip to Walt Disney World in December without taking thermal shirts.  These have been life savers!  If the weather looks like it will be dipping, I would also highly recommend some knit caps.  Warm ears seem to make the body feel warmer.  

    Have a MAGICAL day!
