The past several days have been unusually hot for December in Orlando, Florida and the surrounding communities. This includes at Walt Disney World. Guests who have been visiting for the holidays have enjoyed warm weather with no rain, but everything is about to change.
A cold front is expected to move into Central Florida in the early morning hours of January 3. There is a chance of strong thunderstorms overnight.
The forecast for January 3 calls for a drop in temperature of over 20 degrees. The high temperature on Monday is expected to hit only 64.
The rain should take place overnight, so it will not affect your Theme Park plans. The cool temperatures should last only one day, with the high on Tuesday, January 4 forecast to hit 75 degrees. That is close to average for this time of year in Central Florida.
If the temperature is not expected to climb out of the 60s, there is a good chance that Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park will remain closed. As of this writing, nothing has been announced by Walt Disney World.
Then again, Disney might decide to keep Typhoon Lagoon open, since the Water Park reopened today. It had been closed since March, 2020.
Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park is now closed for its annual refurbishment. There is no word on when it will reopen, but the refurbishment usually lasts for several weeks. In past years, both Water Parks reopened at some point during the month of March.
It is always important to check the forecast before you leave for a Walt Disney World vacation. In the winter months the temperature can fluctuate in a matter of hours. You also need to pack sunscreen. You can burn all year long at Walt Disney World, even on cloudy days.
