“Whats the Weather Like at Walt Disney World?” Is one of the most commonly asked questions out there when it comes to planning a WDW vacation – and it’s something to take into consideration when figuring out when to go to Walt Disney World
Here’s a quick rundown of the average WDW weather conditions:
January/February: Expect temperatures to be in the 50-70 degree range, with an average rainfall of only around 2 inches per month
March/April/May: As spring comes around, the temperatures will rise, getting up to around 85 during the day and dropping to only 60 or so at night. Expect slightly more rain during these months as well
June/July/August/September: I would dub these months “the sticky wet season” – LOTS of rain and heat (generally there are rain showers most afternoons during the hottest part of the day – with an average of 7 inches of rain per month!), with the heat climbing up into the 90’s, and you will rarely see it drop below 70 during these summer months
October/November/December: The temperatures will taper off and be usually in the 70’s/low 80’s during these months, with much less rainfall too (the average is back to around 2 inches per month). This is my favorite time to head to WDW – I love the mild weather and holiday celebrations – it’s the perfect combo!
Obviously this is an average and not a perfect 100% accurate guide, but at least it gives you an idea of what you can expect when you travel to Disney World. For those of us in the Northern (aka snowy) region of the country, we may want to escape to WDW during the winter – where we will be greeted with mild, snow-free weather (it may not be warm enough to swim – but who cares? At least there’s no snow!)
Of course, crowds are another big factor when planning when to head to WDW, so take that and the weather into consideration when figuring out the best time for your family to visit the most Magical Place On Earth!
Personally? I take the “worst case scenario” approach – I assume that it WILL be crowded and that it WILL rain (so I always have my handy ponchos with me at the Parks!) – and while that may sound pessimistic/dreary to think that way – when it is NOT crowded and NOT rainy – I can be pleasantly surprised and enjoy my Disney Days that much more!
