    I love it

    As everyone says though, it's very variable but even if warmer, it feels less humid (to me anyway) so it's a nicer heat. Evening always then gets cooler and more manageable.

    Christmas decorations are up and it's all just wonderfull

    August is our only choice at the moment - one of the downsides of being a school employee. But we'll plot and plan and deal with it.

    And if all else fails it's still pool party at ours.

    Ahhhh yes, the summer months in Florida...not fond memories. ;)

    The midday rain is crucial though, if does not rain then it feels even hotter. I also bring a small umbrella and a poncho (both are easy to carry). Lot's of sunscreen is needed and be prepared for all the other hot, sticky, and easily annoyed people. It just happens....with heat comes crankiness. Myself included. I also find it hard to breathe, the humidity is killer.

    If you can imagine it, once it rains, the pavements actually steam and it's HOTTER than just before it rained! It does sometimes cool off a bit about an hour or so later, but not so's you'd notice much.

    You'll deal with August. Drink, drink, drink, and wear natural fiber, loose, comfortable clothing and bottles of sunscreen. Put the mosquito repellent on your clothes more than yourself.

    Plan on doing something other than the parks in the afternoon. You can escape the rain, have a lovely nice lunch, and then take a swim and return to the parks when it's coming up early evening/late afternoon.

    Bring a light hat, and of course sun glasses.

    Or there's Typhoon Lagoon or Blizzard Beach. Both Castaway Creek or Cross Country Creek can be nice to just float around in and cool off!

    And miss the parades....not an option (unless they are cancelled for rain)

    My DW and I used to go to WDW the day after Christmas and stay through New Years. There were years we went that there wasn't a day under 80 degrees. Other years, there wasn't a day above 55. There's just no way to tell. We finally gave up on trying to out guess it and started packing both our winter clothes and our summer clothes. Made for a lot of suitcases!

    Won't my huband be pleased!! He always rolls his eyes at what I bring anyway!!

    I can't wait, I've always wanted to go at Christmas time. I think I'm more excited for this trip than any other. Our TA is looking at the WL for us. We got a lovely pincode yesterday. It will be our first deluxe. Hmm WL or AKL? Which one....

    You're close!! That's our Finger Lakes region, a very beautiful area I might add. We love to go without the kids especially in the fall for wine tastings! We live about 45 minutes from Buffalo Ny in the ski district.
