    If I'm at Disney between Dec 15 and Dec 20 will the temps be warm enough for swimming? Also, what is the weather like in mid december?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel James!

    December is an awesome time to visit Disney World!  Everything is decorated for the holidays and it is just gorgeous.  I feel like there something extra exciting in the air. 

    The average high temperature for Orlando in December is in the low 70s and the average low is in the low 50s.  They usually get a little over 2 inches of rain during the month.  Now keep in mind that these are averages.  I've visited in December when it was really cold in the morning.  It warmed up during the day but the nights were cold. That isn't usually the norm and if you're from a part of the country or world that has cold winters, chances are you'll love the weather in Orlando in December.  I always recommend that you check the 10-day forecast before your final packing.

    The pools at Disney are heated so if it warms up into the 70s, a swim isn't out of the question.  I've seen people swimming in December and having a great time. One advantage is that the pools aren't as crowded.

    Please feel free to visit with all of your planning questions.  We're hEAR to help!  Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
