Why We Love Disney World in November
In November, the holidays are upon us, and those who love to be festive typically want to dress for the season!
That said, it’s still Orlando, and even if it’s “chillier” for Orlando, you’ll be sweating if you show up at the parks in a sweater and scarf.

What to Wear in November to Disney World for Women
What women like to wear to the parks is definitely a personal choice. The best clothes for Disney World in the hotter months are going to typically be a tank top and shorts.
But we’re talking about Disney World in November, so this is a different situation! If you sweat easily, dress lighter!
Always choose comfortable shoes (you’ll be glad you did.)
Depending on the day and the temperature, you might even be able to get away with long pants or jeans and a short-sleeved top.
Upgrade Your Disney Look!
If you want to go for a more “styled” look, you could wear a skirt or dress! This gives a more “festive” feel for wintertime.
Another great option is leggings! They will keep you warm and make sense for the theme park, as they are athletic wear.
My favorite Disney outfit in November is:
- A cute crop top
- Lightweight pants
- A light cardigan/sweater on top with a holiday season flair that can easily be taken off if it warms up in the afternoon

What to Wear in November to Disney World for Men
For men, the best clothes to wear to Disney World in November are going to depend on what you typically wear during the day.
Jeans are a great option since the sun won’t be blazing like it is during the summer.
Short sleeve shirts are a suitable option for Disney World in November, and either a light jacket or sweatshirt packed in a backpack just in case.
What About Cooler Days at Walt Disney World?
For the chillier days, if you’re visiting closer to Thanksgiving, long sleeve t-shirts might be wise for men as well!
Don’t forget to check the weather for the week of your vacation to Disney World right before you leave.
You’ll also want to do this while you’re packing to make sure there are no dramatic changes in the temperature predictions.
Walt Disney World Weather in November
The weather averages with a high of around 78° and a low of 59°.
It will be chillier than you might expect for Orlando, but if you’re used to snowy winters, it will probably feel on the warm side to you.
It really rarely rains in November at Disney World, so you won’t have to expect too much precipitation. That being said, it won’t be cold either.
Orlando winters typically fall somewhere in the middle. That’s why you want to be prepared for almost anything with your November packing.
Best Holiday Accessories for Your Disney World Outfit
Let’s talk about seasonal accessories!
During Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, men and women alike enjoy dressing up for the holiday season when they visit Disney World in November and December.
Disney World sells holiday themed-Mickey Mouse ears that are for purchase in advance on Disney’s website!
Plus, Disney sells holiday-themed jewelry, bags, t-shirts, and more!
These can be fun gift items to purchase in the parks but also ahead of the trip if you so choose.
Disney Bounding in November
Let’s discuss Disney bounding! First of all, what does it mean to “Disney Bound”?
Essentially, the definition of Disney Bounding is when Disney fans dress up like their favorite Disney characters but not quite in costume, instead more of a regular clothes- look that gives the essence of said Disney characters’ style.
For example, if you love Pooh Bear, you might wear yellow tights and ears on a headband and a red t-shirt.
So, what could you Disney Bound as in November?
The answer is: any of your favorite characters! Just the same as throughout the rest of the year.
But the difference is, for November, you’ll want to incorporate longer sleeves, jackets, and overall light layers into the character look.
Get creative! Use the opportunity to wear colorful tights and cute scarves while still keeping to the theme of whoever you are Disney Bounding as!
What to Pack for Disney World in November?
As previously mentioned, it’s a great idea to check the weather all the way up until the day before you leave for your Disney World vacation.
I know that planning your Disney outfits is more complicated in November than it would be other times of the year.
Here’s Your November Packing List for Disney World:
- Comfortable shoes
- A Hat
