Winter Pool Weather at Walt Disney World: Pool Days November through February

By Dave Shute

Weather    Temps    Rain    Hurricanes    Tornadoes    Winter Highs    Winter Pool Days


The chart (click to enlarge) shows, for November through February, the chances of having 3 or more, 5 or more, or 7 or more days with highs 75 and higher in a 9 day visit, by arrival date.

The message is that the chance of having 5 or more days with highs of 75 or more drops below 50% at the end of November, and does not go up to 50% again until mid-February.


All this site’s weather pages except for the material on cyclonic storms and on tornadoes are based on 20 years of data from the National Weather Service ending in December 2006. The cyclonic storm material is based on 30 years of data from Wikipedia. The tornado material is from NOAA/NCDC and goes from 1950 through October 2009.

Hi Omella, this site only really covers Disney World, and has little on the rest of Orlando, and nothing on Miami. Crowds are high the week including President’s Day, and temperatures are all over the place—see this:

Carla. you can make it work. You just need to 1. use FastPass+ (see this: ) 2. arrive at the parks before they open and 3. Have a plan. For an example plan (not updated for FastPass+) see this

Hi Dave! LOVE your site, it is such a wonderful resource! We are planning a trip, and will be staying at the Beach Club (the kids are fishes) and want to get a lot of use out of the pool. What do you think is the latest we can go, and still have warm enough weather to swim? We could go in October, but I would prefer to see the Christmas festivities. I also am wary of Jersey Week, the kids are little (3 and 5), and long lines terrify me. What about the 2nd week of November? Do you think it will be warm enough and will the parks really be fully decorated so early? Thanks so much!

Hi Lindsay and thanks! As you can see from this page temperatures both drop and become highly variable starting way back in Sept. So November is a crapshoot, though the earlier the better. MK will be fully decorated the 2nd week of November. Epcot does not begin its full xmas program until the Friday after Thanksgiving. The other parks are in between. The hotels put on their decorations mid-month.

hi i was thinking of taking my kids end of march beginning of april but am worried if the pools will be cold. could you tell me what temp the weather is and the temp of pools? i do not want them to get ill. thanks

The end of March is a terrible time to go in 2016, Nil, as it has some of the highest crowds and prices of the year. The pools are heated year round. See this for weather then. April after the 2nd is much better
