www.wftv.com is a great local weather station. I would bring warm and cool weather clothes.

Dressing in layers is best. That way, you can take things on/off as the temperature changes.

We never go in the winter either. I'm struggling with what to do with the layers that you take off or the layers that you may want to put on later. I'm used to only carrying a small bag. With fluctuations from 77 degrees to the low 50s, is a trip back to the resort to change at some point each late afternoon almost a requirement? If not - what do you do with your stuff?

I believe your backpack from 1.0 will hold a change of clothes and small enough to not be in the way.

The mornings and evening can be significantly cooler than the afternoons in December. Last year I wore shorts underneath some wind pants. In the afternoon when the temps went up I took off the windpants and stuck them in my backpack. Much more comfortable that way.

I did 4 days at the world in early Feb this year. I'm excited to see that it should be warmer than that trip. I packed several pants/jeans, 2 pair shorts (did not wear them but may this time), both long and short sleeve shirts (can wear one or other or both!), zip up fleece jacket and rain jacket (I wore everything the day it POURED on us at Epcot).
We packed all extra clothing we needed into a single backpack and rented a locker each day. This allowed us to shed/add/replace wet clothing as needed.

HTH!

We have a winner!

This is the way to go. We've been doing WDW in early December for over 15 years and the word to describe the weather then is "variable". We actually have pictures from one visit where we are in shorts/t-shirts on one day and our shirts, sweatshirts and coats 2 days later.

I too am a fan of the lockers. You will be chilly in the am, and then hot in the afternoon, and then chilly again at night. I always bring a lightweight hat and gloves too. 50 can be chilly when you are just sitting around waiting for wishes or illuminations.

A Viking Coffee can help you warm up for Illuminations.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

We always make a point of going back to our resort in the afternoon. Even when the weather is more of a constant throughout the day and evening.

After being in a park for several hours, I'm ready to freshen up and put on some clean clothes. And, most days we park hop anyway
