    Greetings Panel, My family of 14 will be arriving on 12/22 and wanted to know what would be appopriate attire for this time of year. Will a t-shirt and light jacket be enough? Long pants vs. shorts? Please help! Thanks

    Hi LaSharon!

    December is my personal favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World.  I love how everything is decorated for the holidays, and the special holiday offerings such as the Candlelight Processional in Epcot.

    With regards to the weather, the average high for that time of year is about 73 degrees and the average low is 51 degrees.  However, the record high is 90 degrees and the record low is 20 degrees, so you can definitely see warmer and/or cooler temperatures during your trip.  I personally recommend wearing short sleeves with a jacket, sweater, or sweatshirt.  I usually pack several shorts and only one pair of long pants, but then I like cooler weather.  I walk around in the winter time at home with shorts on!  You really shouldn't see much rain, if any, during that time of the year!

    Enjoy planning and write back if you have any more questions!
