Prepare for a Cold Week at Disney World!

Cold Weather Disney World

It is going to be a COLD week at the Walt Disney World Resort, Disney fanatics! At least, cold for Florida standards.

Central Florida began the morning of Monday, January 24, with a fresh layer of frost on the ground, and it does not look like it is going to get much warmer throughout the day.

For those of you scheduled to take in your latest dose of Disney Magic, here is the weather report:

Walt Disney World January Weather


According to The Weather Channel, as of the morning of January 24, the temperature at all four Theme Parks and Disney Springs is not expected to get above 64 degrees, dipping back into the 40s at night. What will make these temperatures worse, speaking as a Floridian, is the humidity levels. 67% humidity will make the nights feel far colder than 46 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cold rain is then expected on Tuesday, January 25, and on Friday, January 28, with the days in between expected to be rather cloudy with a moderate chance of rain.

The weekend, however, is expected to be a beautiful winter day. Extremely cold for Florida–with a low close to freezing–but the days are expected to be incredibly sunny and dry. Near-freezing temperatures are relatively common in January and February, but in the mega-resort’s 50-year history, it has never snowed once. Not yet, anyway.
