    Hello Everyone :)
    Im currently planning a trip to WDW for the end of next month. The travel dates are February 26th - March 5th 2013 and Im just wondering what to expect weather wise. Will it be shorts and tshirts kinda weather? Last year we went in December and I definitely did not pack enough summer type clothes as I was expecting colder weather. Is it around the same temps in February or typically warmer or colder than December?
    Thanks in advance!

    depends on if you hit a warm front or a cool front.

    the average is mid to upper 70's. but it can hit the upper 80's on any day, but can also dip down into the low 40's.

    you really wont know untill about 3 days out for certain. they cant accuratly predict the weather in southern florida beyond 3 days because of the gulf, the atlantic and what ever comes south from the states and canada.

    I (mostly) agree with poster #3.

    I've seen it go all over the place in Feb. Since you are going at the end of the month, and this has been a relatively mild winter, odds are fairly good that you'll get at least some warm weather. While rain is ALWAYS possible, Feb tends to be on the dry side. :)

    I disagree slightly about weather reports. I've been there plenty of times when the weather report was very incorrect. (Even on a same-day basis!) But about three days out you'll get a vaguely helpful guide.

    The best way to plan is to bring layers. For now, kind of plan for both possibilities, and make last minute adjustments. ALWAYS bring at least ONE pair of long pants (esp jeans) and some kind of jacket/sweater/sweatshirt/wet weather protection. (plastic ponchos?) It also depends how temp tolerant you are.

    When I am going in Feb, I especially keep an eye out for clothes that do double duty- like a jacket that is both windbreaker and raincoat (L.L. Bean makes a great one that folds up into a pocket). Fleece is great!

    I personally always try to avoid laundry, but bring a little powdered detergent. You can also buy detergent in the WDW laundry rooms. The last time I had to use one, the machines were operated by room key only.

    Typically in Feb, we need a jacket in the am, wear shorts/spring/summer clothes during the day, and put on long pants/capris/jackets at night. Usually, there is at least one good swimming day. (take advantage of the first one you get!)

    A few years ago, we wore winter coats every day!!!!! The first day of the Flower Festival, the butterflies were not moving at all! They were just staying put on the 'release' box. Until the sun hit them....and they all moved at once...then the cloud came back and they froze. We came back hours later and they had not moved off the box.
