    Welcome back to the Mom's Panel, Diana!  Congratulations on your fourth Walt Disney World Vacation!  I know your family must be getting super excited!  I think you will find early November to be a great time to visit the "'Happiest Place on Earth" as this time of year traditionally has lower crowd levels and milder temperatures. The average highs for Orlando in November is typically in the upper 70s with the average lows in the mid to upper 50s. I would recommend packing items that can be layered with short sleeved shirts and capris during the day along with a sweatshirt or jacket that can be added in the early mornings and late evenings when the temperatures are lower. I would also recommend packing a few pairs of shorts or pants once you see what the forecast is going to be closer to your arrival date. Based on my own personal experience, I have always preferred jeans and short sleeved shirts for park touring while making sure to bring a light jacket into the park with me. My children would actually prefer shorts with a sweatshirt. In regards to foot ware, I would recommend wearing shoes that are very comfortable due to the amount of walking you with be doing. Many guests prefer tennis shoes while others prefer sandals or flip flops regardless of the current temperature because that is their shoe of preference for walking. I personally prefer flip flops in the warmer months and closed toe shoes in the winter months. When my family has traveled in the fall, we have not required sunscreen. However, I never think it hurts to have sunscreen on hand. If you will be staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you may also consider packing your swimsuits as the Resort pools are heated year round. Please be sure to check the Orlando weather forecast a few days before your Walt Disney World Vacation begins so that you can pack accordingly. I hope this helps! Please feel free to write back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a Magical Trip, Diana!
    Happy Packing,
