    I am planning a trip to WDW in Oct. 08 and was wondering about weather. What should I pack for my 4 and 5 year old?

    October is still warm at WDW. Highs average in the mid-80s and lows average in the 60s. I would bring mostly shorts with some capri-type pants for the evenings. No matter what the weather, we always keep a sweater or light jacket with us when we travel to WDW, some of the restaurants keep the air-conditioning set on "chilly."

    Bear in mind that the temperature averages I mentioned are just averages. During any given year, things could be much warmer or colder than expected. When I pack to go to WDW, I usually do a preliminary round of planning or pre-packing before we go. But then the week before we leave I check the weather forecast daily and adjust what we bring based on up-to-the-minute data. Just go to, type in "Orlando, FL" and you can click on the 10-day forecast button or the annual average button.
