It's hit or miss!! When we went in December of 2008 and 2012 we were able to swim everyday we were there! In 2010 thou we were there during the cold snap that came thru and no pool. Just as a note the pools are heated to 80 degrees

Thanks to all of you! This makes me very hopeful that we can all get what we want from our vacay. It also gives me plenty of "ammo" to convince DH. I guess we just need an extra suitcase in order to be prepared for anything! And yes, giving DS the alternative to stay home with a sitter would definitely keep him quiet about the weather. On a side note, we were last there in Aug 2012 and just about melted ....this will be a welcome change for touring the parks!

We always go the first week of December. Here's what we had....

2012 - mild- lots of swimming in the heated pool at WL
2010- freezing - the kids got in at the Poly pool but just till their lips turned blue!
2008 - warm - the kids swam every day and I even got in once or twice.

The good thing is that a swimsuit doesn't take up much room. Bring it, just in case.

You most definitely can swim in December. The last two years I was there in early to mid December and we had days in both extremes. We had mid 80 days and we also had long johns, gloves, hat, scarves & heavy coat days. It is really weird.

Even if it is in the 70s, kids love to swim. They don't mind it a bit. Take everything, be prepared and enjoy!
