Seasons in Florida are not that dramatic, one of the reasons Walt Disney chose the Florida location. But with the steamy summers behind us, even Fall’s slight changes are appealing. With milder temperatures and the kids back in school, it certainly makes for a perfect trip. So pack accordingly!
Clothes – Fall in Florida can still be hot. You’ll still need shorts, t-shirts and even swim suits. But now you’ll really need to toss a light jacket or sweater into the mix. For a great list of packing lists, click here.
Rain – Fall, while a bit drier than spring and summer, is not without its rain showers. And don’t forget hurricane season which lasts until November 30th. Bring a rain poncho to avoid shelling out $9 for a Disney poncho. Although, if you forget yours it’s good to know that if you tear or rip the Disney poncho you purchased in the park, they will replace it for free.
Party! – Especially if you are visiting during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party season, don’t forget your costume. It’s one of the few times Disney encourages adult “children at heart” to dress up and join in the fun!
Photos – Aside from purchasing Memory Maker (which I highly recommend) don’t forget your camera, or room on your cellphone. The seasonal decor is gorgeous, and if you visit in November, the Christmas decorations will start going up after the first week, getting better and better as you approach December. There are photo ops galore in the fall!
Sunscreen – This is Florida, after all. And sunscreen, not matter what time of year it is, is a necessary item in the Florida sun.
Souvenir Money – With the extra fall activities (Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, EPCOT’s Food & Wine Festival) there will plenty of extra things to spend your money on. There are special edible treats, balloons, seasonal gadgets, pins and t-shirts. Pace yourself! There’s a tempting treat around every corner.
