What to Pack for Cold Days at Disney World

Florida typically has a subtropical climate with fantastic weather year-round! Believe it or not, however, there are some cold days at Disney World. In the winter months, even Disney World can get a little chilly. If you are traveling in the winter months and it looks like the temperatures will be lower than you’re used to, here’s what you should pack!

If you are prepared, the cold at Disney World won’t bother you at all! Colder weather also typically means lower crowds which is a big plus. Here’s what we recommend packing for colder days at Disney.


Layers are super helpful when the mornings and evenings are cooler and the sun warms up in the afternoon. You might need a sweatshirt or light jacket when the morning begins, but as the day warms up, you can take it off and enjoy the sunshine.

Layers like light jackets, sweatshirts, and even leggings you can wear under a skirt or dress can help you stay warm. Layers that can easily be put on and taken off are great to keep yourself comfortable as the weather adjusts throughout the day.


You might be surprised but Orlando can get down to freezing temperatures. It’s not very common but it happens! You might need a warmer jacket than the light jacket mentioned above.

There are a lot of winter coats that easily roll and take up little room in a suitcase or backpack. Feeling warm and cozy will make the magic that much more enjoyable.


Winter Gear

The chance of snow (not the magical snoap that falls on Main Street) is very small but don’t underestimate a good hat and light gloves! Add in a scarf and you’ll be toasty warm no matter how cold it gets at Disney World.


Also, make sure you have the right socks for your trip. You’ll want breathable socks that will keep your feet warm. You don’t want to have cold sweaty feet while walking around Disney World.

Hand Warmers

Living in Alaska, I’ve grown to love Hot Hands warmers! They are small and fit into your bag super easily and they last for hours! Toss a few in your park bag and get them out if your hands start to get chilly.



I know this is an article to prepare you for cold days, not rainy days. But, you still need to be prepared for wet days! Being cold is no fun but being WET and cold is the WORST! Plus, if you take a poncho, you can still enjoy your favorite water rides when it’s chilly out.
