We were there in December 2010 when the weather conditions were the same and most of the rides were closed. They closed the park one afteroon to new admissions due to the snow.

But we still had a great time just walking around and taking photos. The parks look so different in the snow. And when they made the announcement that there was not going to be a parade that afternoon we were not in the least surprised.

Lucky for us PoTC was open and it was lovely and warm in there.

We were there last January and it was extremely cold, when I got home and checked DCP temperatures were apparently -16, guessing that's feel like but not surprisingly lots of attractions were closed including ToT which is missing from Carrie's list, but we were told that was due to the extreme cold too.
There was still plenty open for us to have a good time though

I think it depends on the age of your children, yesterday every little one we passed was crying as they were cold or tired or both.

When you are an adult you don't mind as much and can find other things to do but a small child it must be miserable

We just got back today (should have been back last night but our flight got cancelled... but thats another story lol)

It was lovely to see the park covered with snow and I'll admit it, looking at the list of closures for today I'm kinda glad we're back. It was a fab trip but we could have done with Pirates being open if only for the warmth ha ha!

I do want to add one thing that amused us greatly... you spend all that money on getting there and no matter how old people get they still enjoy dropping blocks of snow onto the frozen water. Hours of entertainment right there!

It is supposed to snow again from midnight until late afternoon tomorrow, then again on Monday.

By next Friday the temperatures should be low positive again and it should be dry - I will update in the week - don't worry too much for the moment as the worst is now so you did good not to come this Friday

Whats local news giving the weather like for Tuesday Carrie? Im getting conflicting info here! I dont mind getting stuck at DLP but if we didnt get to go at all we would be devastated. Im hoping and praying the snow clears up quickly.
