    We are planning our first ever WDW trip for March 13-18. What clothing would you recommend? I have researched the temps and know that the highs will be mid 70s-low 80s and the lows will still be in the 50s. Would you shorts, capris, or jeans work better

    Howdy Lisa!

    I'm glad you've looked at the average temperatures for your trip.  That's always a good place to start.  The weather in Florida is not too much different from the weather in Texas (as long as you're not in extreme north Texas) except for the humidity.  That makes a BIG difference in Florida!

    I would honestly suggest planning on a mix of all those.  I'd bring jeans for the unexpected cold snaps, shorts for warmer weather and capris for those in-between days.  As your vacation nears, you'll be able to look at the 10 day forecast for the upcoming days, and you'll be able to choose the appropriate apparel more accurately. 

    Also, don't forget the rain gear!  No matter WHEN we travel to Walt Disney World, we ALWAYS pack our anoraks!  They also come in handy if it gets a little chilly out. 

    Have a magical vacation!
