No, I've never been to MVMCP before. I'm trying to find out the dates so that I can make my ADR's around it. Last year the party was held three nights in the first week of December and if they do that this year, it will really affect our MK plans.

We are from MN so we know cold weather. Our first choice is early December. We have done early November and it has been too warm for us, upper 80s. The misters were going in the parks. We have never had too cold of weather in early December.

Thank you for your experience! This definitely helps!

We are going this year in November and are hoping for warm enough weather for swimming.

That being said, we were at WDW around December 10, 2010 and - no word of a lie - the temperatures got down to 29. Yes, that is Fahrenheit! We froze! I know before we went that I had read that the weather could be warm during that time of year, and it could be cold. Lucky us, we got the jackpot of record lows

Good luck!

Oh my goodness!!!! I'm sorry you had that weather. I really hope that's not a norm! I'm slightly nervous now. We are booked for Nov 30-dec 8

Yup, been there, had that weather. Was there in 2010..it was brutal!!! I've had almost as cold weather other years as well!!! There has never been a Dec that I have gone into a pool. Yes, the pools are heated..but you have to get out of that pool eventually!!! The air is cold. 50 in central Florida is chilly.

The thing to remember....usually the week after Thanksgiving is late this year. There is usually a week in between Thanksgiving and that first full week of Dec. So a lot of people have found that week to be wonderful. And it was. But this year, the first week in Dec is immediately following Thanksgiving. It is a very desirable time for DVC owners...many go down this first week. Then, add to that the PopWarner kids arriving that week. I have been to WDW every year since '03, in early Dec. And it has been wonderful. And I usually don't have much trouble booking my stay at BWV, but this year? Didn't happen. I missed my 11 month booking window by a week....wasn't able to book at BWV!! There will be a lot of people heading down this particular week.

The holidays are wonderful at WDW. I love going at this time of year. BUT...the weather can be wonderful, or it can be downright cold!! I've been there when I could wear a tee shirt and shorts every day, and just put on a sweatshirt at night. BUT...I've been there when it was too cold to wear tee shirts and shorts at all...other than for about an hour midday, in the sun!! Layers are the order of the day in Florida in Dec.

Oh no! Now I'm nervous I chose a bad week. Sounds like I may be in for bad weather and bad crowds.

Us too. We're are planning a Disney trip for this Veteran's Day weekend because we figured the the weather should be good & crowds wouldn't be so bad compared to the Holidays when the kids have their school winter break. Let see... hoping for the best!

UGH! We have never been there for Xmas either and were thinking about the first week. I'm kinda leery about the weather too. Don't want it hot but don't want it cold either!!! And was hoping for low crowds. Now I'm confused as whether to go at this time.

We are going the first week of December this year. It could be warm or it could be cold. There is no way to predict it. But I do know that we have a good chance that it will be warmer that first week than it will be later in December. And all the Christmas decorations will be up and it will be magical.

I was hoping for a low crowd period, too, but since Thanksgiving is so late this year we might not get it. But it might be lower than later in December. And it is before Pop Warner, which is nice.
