We haven't been there in November but we have been there in December, January and February and it was warm enough to swim.

We were there in 11/07 and it was perfect swimming weather during the day but a bit chilly at night. We stayed at POR and the swimming at night was fine; it was the walk from the pool to the room in bathing suits in 55-60 degree weather was tough!:scared1:

We were there last Nov. and my ds 10 went swimming one day. The weather was kind of crazy our week. The day before he went swimming we were in fleeces and long pants. It was very warm earlier in the week though. I would say you should have a good chance of swimming weather. The pools are heated so the water should be warm enough - it's just the getting out of the water part that may be iffy.

As other posters have stated, DEFINITELY during the day. We went to Blizzard Beach 11/14/07 and it was hot, sweaty and great! At night, by the POFQ hotel pool, I was in a hooded sweatshirt & my kids were swimming! Kids can always swim can't they?:)

We were there last Nov after Thanksgiving and it was warm enough to swim.

Agree with the PP that it never seems to be too cool for kids to want to swim. :)

We went last year and it was in Dec!!! Went to Blizard Beach as Typhoon lagoon was closed. Jacob and I had a great time no lines at all!!

We always go in November (Jersey Week) and during the day it is usually warm enough (80's) to go swimming. We have been to Typhoon Lagoon during this time and it was perfect. Nite time is a little chilly.

I've been several times at that time of year. In early November, it seemed fairly reliably warm. At the end of the month/early December, it seems the weather becomes more shifty.

Twice we were there at the end of the month:
In '05, it was warm the first day, after that it was shorts weather, but not so much swim weather - 70's - during the day and cool at night. We changed into jeans. The last day was our designated 'pool' day. We did go in, but the water at AKL was heated (esp the hot tub), our walk back to the building/room was very short. It was way too windy and cold to sit by the pool. I would not have gone to the pool at a value or moderate. We really only forced ourselves to go because we had limited time to do anything else.

In '06, our first few days were COLD - as in Orlando had flurries and frost cold! We figured it was warmer than up north, but really, it was too cold to be in the parks all day. Later in the trip, it went up to the mid 80's during the day for a few days. The weathermen said that was unusual for that time of year - near record highs. Again, we wore sweatshirts/jeans at night most nights we were there.

In Nov 2004, we were able to swim. It was perfect weather!

We were there last year mid-November. The first couple of days the weather was nice, hot and great for swimming. Then the temperature dropped and we were in jeans and jackets and would not have wanted to swim.

Yeah it should be great to swim in November. I used to live down in Orlando, and October and November were always my favorite weather months. So bring your swim trunks!

Mid-November 2006 for us, too cold to swim. The last day it warmed up to the 80s and of course I had to play evil Mom and say no because we had to check out by 9am for ME to the airport.

The rest of the week was perfect park weather, but too cool/breezy to swim.

It's hit or miss. Some years the weather has been fine for swimming. Others, not. Our stay at the YC in Nov 2003 was awesome, but it was just too darned cold to go in the water. The large pool area was pretty much empty, so it wasn't just us.

We used to go every year for Thanksgiving and some years we could swim, other years it was too cold for us. It also depends on your tolerance for cold, I do not like to swim unless it is sunny and at least 80 degrees. Others think 70 degrees is warm enough to swim.
