    what is the weather like in oct through dec at disney and are the resort pools still open in dec

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    October is generally cooler than the summer months at Walt Disney World. However, you can still have some hot and humid days.  It definitely starts to cool off in November and December can be nice during the day, but cool and sometimes even cold in the evening.  When I go in December, I usually wear shorts and a t-shirt in the day and pants and a light jacket at night.

    The resort pools at Walt Disney World are heated.  So you can definitely swim all year round there!  Just remember, however, that while the water might be heated, you eventually have to get out of the water and into, what might be, cold air!  Even the water parks are heated, though in the winter, usually one of the water parks is closed for refurbishments.

    My personal favorite time to visit during that time frame is the first two weeks of December.  The weather is nice and the crowds are relatively low.  Also, the resorts and parks are beautifully decorated for the end of year holidays then.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
