With an overall average high temperature of 83° and an average low of 62°, the weather at Disney World sounds just about perfect. However, you need to know that summer temperatures are very hot, often reaching into the mid-90s. It's important to note that the heat can wilt even the most enthusiastic Mickey Mouse fan, and can even be very dangerous for older visitors. Frequent afternoon thunderstorms will often cool things off a bit, but you should definitely follow these tips for beating the Florida heat to help keep yourself comfortable and safe.

If you're wondering what to pack, shorts and either a tank top or t-shirt will keep you comfortable in the summer at the parks. Cooler days in the parks during the winter may require slacks, long sleeves and a light- to medium-weight jacket. It can get quite chilly on some of the faster-moving rides. Of course, always (always!) wear comfortable shoes.

Do bring along a bathing suit any time of the year if you are staying at a Disney World onsite resort hotel. All the swimming pools are heated!

It had been over a decade since Disney World had been affected by a hurricane, but in October of 2016 Hurricane Matthew changed that. It is only the fourth time in the 45-year history of Disney World that the theme parks had to close. If you are visiting the theme parks during the hurricane season (June 1 through November 30) you should be aware of Disney's hurricane policy.

On average Disney World's warmest month is July and January is the average coolest month.

Of course, the highest recorded temperature in Disney World was 103° in 1961 and the lowest temperature recorded was a very chilly 19° in 1985. The maximum average rainfall usually falls in August, but don't let the rain spoil your visit. You really can make the best of a rainy day at Disney World.
