This thumbnail (click to open) shows, based on 20 years of data ending in 2006, the chance that a day in Orlando will have a high temperature of 75 or greater, by day from September through May.

Takeaway: The chance a day will have a high of 75 or higher drops below 50% at the end of November, and does not go up to 50% again until mid-February.

There are 5 in my family (2 adults, 15yr, 14yr and 5yr) and I am planning our vacation to Disney the first week of December. We are on a budget,can you suggest an “onsite” property that woudl accomodate 5 people and not be a deluxe property. We will want to have at least 2 meals with the charactors and pass to Disney World, MGM, Animal Kingdom – any suggestions where to start?

Kim—for your resort, take a look at this page on large families looking for value accommodations at Disney World.

I suspect you’ll end up picking a trundle-bed room in the Alligator Bayou section of Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort, but check the other options on that page.

Re dining, see this page on character meals.

If you are on a budget (and not using the dining plan) breakfasts tend to be cheapest (then lunches), and brunches the best value for money. That would lend me towards breakfast at Chef Mickey’s and lunch at the Crystal Palace.

Hope this helps–and have a great trip! Dave

Hi Sharhonda! While nobody can predict the weather exactly that far ahead, August at Disney World is typically hot and humid, and brief afternoon thunderstorms are common!

Dave,

Against your recommendations, my entire family of 14 (parents, siblings, nieces, & nephews) are going to Disney World December 25 – January 2 (2nd option is December 20 – 28). This time frame fits in to everyone’s school and / or work calendar. Any thoughts on accommodations for a group of this size. The group of 14 breaks down into 5 different families with the largest being 2 adults and 2 two kids. I considered a Disney World resort to take advantage of the WDW airport transportation. When I went online, seemed like they only had premium resorts available. Last questions, we’re also visiting Universal Studios. If we don’t rent a vehicle or two, whats the best way to get our group from hotel to Universal? Thanks for you insight!

Hi, I am planning my first trip around March 28-April 4, 2015. Looking at your calendar this is a very busy time, right? Also, can you tell me if this is a time military discounts are accepted. What is the best way to plan the trip since I am going to try to use our military discount? Should I get tickets at a local base? Thanks!

Hi Sylvia,

You are correct, this will be a very busy time of year to go to WDW. Because of the high crowd levels, Disney does not offer the Disney Armed Forces Salute during most of your time period.

Resort discounts are not available from 30 March through 4 April and the highly discounted 4-day Salute tickets are not able to be used on 29 March through 9 April.

If you have the option to move your trip earlier by a few days I would recommend that. If not, then you could at least get 2 nights of the military discount on your Disney Resort room.

If you do need to go during that time, you’ll want to use the Regular Military Discounted Magic Your Way tickets available from your base ticket office, Shades of Green, or via FedEx from the Camp Pendleton ITT.

For info on these tickets see: http://www.militarydisneytips.com/blog/disney-military-discounts/regular-disney-military-discount-for-walt-disney-world-and-disneyland-tickets/

Thanks Steve! Sylvia–he’s the site’s military expert!!
