  • Pants / Jeans
  • Pair of shorts
  • Closed shoes
  • Socks
  • Other accessories

This article will suggest how to dress and what to pack for a Thanksgiving trip to Disney World. Also, we will briefly discuss weather conditions in Florida in November.

Weather at Disney World in November

The weather in the Sunshine State (Florida) during Thanksgiving is not too warm or cool. Therefore, it is ideal for visitors to stay in the parks all day. With high temperatures around the 70s and lows around the 50s in the evening, it finally feels like fall. With appropriate clothing, despite being close to winter, the weather allows you to enjoy the trip.

Although the probability of rain is comparatively very low, we all know that unexpected rain showers in the afternoon are a thing in Florida. So it would be better for you to be prepared for such scenarios beforehand.

Clothing Packing List for Thanksgiving at Disney World

When visiting Walt Disney World for Thanksgiving, pack according to the weather. By this, we didn’t mean you should pack thick winter clothing as they will take up a lot of space and won’t be needed in Florida. But surely you won’t be able to roam in the parks wearing Sandos or Tank Tops. So what to wear?

To know this, let’s just quickly jump to the options.

1. Long Sleeved Shirts

When you are visiting Disney World in November, the first thing we would suggest you pack is long-sleeved shirts. They will take up much less space in your bag. In addition, you can easily layer them on T-shirts for warmth on those chilly mornings. Then, as the day passes and it gets warm, take the long-sleeved shirt off and flaunt that Star Wars-themed T-shirt in the Hollywood Studios.

2. Sweatshirts / Cardigans

You should include at least one sweatshirt, cardigan, or light jacket for added warmth. It is pretty cool in the late evenings at the fireworks, so make sure you have something to cater to the cold.

Try to bring something that would take up less space in the luggage and is easy to carry around. This is why we suggest a sweatshirt that can also be easily layered with other thin clothes.

3. Pants / Jeans

It would help to pack a few pairs of pants or jeans for your Thanksgiving trip. The number depends on your choice, but whatever you bring along should be able to help in varied weather and give a trendy look too. Of course, you can wear jeans, pants or trousers. But for this November vacation, comfort should be your top priority.

4. Pair of Shorts

For hot days, pack a pair of shorts too. You may not wear them, but bringing them to be safe is better since they won’t take up much space.

5. Closed Shoes

Bring along footwear that is comfortable enough to make it easy for you to walk all day. Probably closed shoes. Try to pre-plan to buy trendy shoes that go with the weather well and are comfortable, too, because no one would want to head back to the hotel from the parks with blisters.

6. Socks

Do not forget to bring socks. When you walk all day, your feet should be at ease. With footwear at the top, socks also play an important role. Try to pack a few pairs which will give you comfort and keep your feet warm too.

7. Other Accessories

  • On colder days, along with your whole body, try to keep your ears and head warm too. To help with that, you must have a cap. You can even bring a Disney-themed cap with fun motifs and buy it from gift shops at Disney World.
  • A pair of gloves should be with you to keep your hands warm for an extra chilly evening. This will also help if you are carrying bags or moving a stroller and can’t keep your hands in your pocket.
  • If you have booked any formal dinner, bring a fancy/formal dress according to it, as some restaurants have dress codes.
  • Rain gear is a must when visiting Florida at any time of the year. But it is more applicable for November trips. So pack rain-appropriate clothing if you get caught in an afternoon downpour. Keeping an umbrella would also help a lot.


So, this is it!

We hope our suggestions will help you deal with Florida weather and dress appropriately. So that when you look back at the pictures, you won’t be upset with your attire but rather think of all the fun you had!
