It may be hard to believe if you’ve only visited Disney World in the summer, but it can feel pretty frigid in Central Florida! Disney World fans are typically pros at packing their flip flops and swimsuits but may be totally in the dark when they have to consider packing hats and scarves! It can get cold in Disney World really anytime between November and March, so you’ll want to be prepared!

Disney World by no means gets to those temperatures you may be used to seeing at home in the winter, but do not underestimate how COLD Central Florida can feel!

We’ve rounded up some of our top picks for the winter gear you should consider packing when you head to Disney World on those chillier days!

A packable jacket

They key to dressing appropriately for the winter in Disney World is to dress in layers. While it could still get warm and in the 70’s during the day, it can easily dip into the 50’s and even the 40’s at night. To avoid lugging around heavy, bulky coats all day, opt for a lightweight, packable jacket that’s easy to shove into your bag. This jacket from Target checks off both of those boxes and comes in a variety of colors!

Athletic long sleeve shirts and jackets made for runners

If you’re looking for layers that won’t be quite as bulky as a jacket, consider athletic wear, especially options made for runners! These shirts and jackets are slim and won’t take up much space in your bag if you need to shed some layers during the day. Running gear also acts as great windbreakers! First up, we found this runDisney Half-Zip Performance Pullover for Women that would act as a great outer layer on those chillier days.

Hand sanitizer that your hands will appreciate

Let’s paint a picture: it’s cold and perhaps a little windy. Your hands tend to dry out in the winter, but you want to make sure you’re properly equipped to stay safe in the parks. So you lather up with some hand sanitizer…and you’re soon reminded just how cold and dry your hands are! Not fun! Instead of conventional hand sanitizer, stock up on some that have some moisturizing properties, like this travel size container by Dove!
