    I'm turning 19 and in college. My friend and I wants to plan a trip a trip to WDW. As college students we LOVE to save. I was thinking of going in Jan '09 b/c we're off and it's the low season, but she's afraid that it's not warm enough. What should I do?

    I am a huge January fan! Let’s not do the math…but many years ago, I began going in January during college break as well.

    Crowds are very low and better yet, you’ll have value prices.

    Since you are from NY (I grew up in Rochester), you’ll find any January weather in Florida welcoming.  While we have had a few trips where we were in jeans during the day, most of our January stays have included warm afternoons from 70-80 degrees.

    Usually we begin the day in jeans and a lightweight jacket, then by afternoon we have shed the jackets and/or changed in to shorts. Evenings can get chilly again. The best part is leaving your winter gear up north.

    I love escaping in January for a break away from the bone-chilling cold. After the holiday season has winded down, it gives you some thing to still look forward to.

    If you are looking to sunbathe all day, it’s likely not the best time for you and your friend to visit. But, if you plan on touring the WDW parks, then you’ll enjoy the low crowd levels. Just plan pool time for the warmest hours in the afternoon. At any rate, you are likely to return to school feeling rejuvenated!
