We normally go at thanksgiving and we always do layers. I'd rather have it in a locker than to need it and not have it. We are also going in 10 days and I plan on layering again.

Yes yes yes and more yes. How I wish I'd had thin long underwear!

DH never even wears long pants until it's below 32 here at home, but he was nearly in tears from the wet wind coming off the lake while watching Illuminations. We had a horrid watching spot because we were scouring the shops until the last second trying to find a knit hat that would fit his noggin (never did). It was SO cold Dec 2010, and since ours was a longer trip and it started a few days into the trip getting colder and colder, AND because we just didn't think it would happen since it had happened the year before, we were horribly unprepared. We couldn't easily buy new clothes because we were both in sizes too large for most of the clothes in the giftshops, and I was in major denial about that, and DH just didn't want to pay the Casual Male prices for a good coat. (and we didn't even think about long underwear)

I would bring lots of layers, and make sure that you have access to, or can go buy, a good coat just in case it freezes again. WDW is surrounded by water, and cold wind goes over that water and can just chill you to the bone.
