November is a good time to visit Disney World, Florida as the Christmas decorations are set up in the second half of the month and the weather is much cooler than in the summer months.
For your trip to Disney World in November, you should not only pack airy and light outfits but also light jackets and long sleeve shirts to keep yourself warm during the cooler moments of the day.
To make things easier for you, I’ve created a list of all the necessary clothing/items you’d need for your stay at Disney World in November.
Things You Need for Your Stay at Disney World in November
As I mentioned earlier, November in Florida is a mild weather month. This means that it is neither too hot nor too cold.
This type of weather makes it necessary for you to pack a mix of outfits that can be worn in layers.
Working with a layer of clothes will make it easy for you to tour the parks as you can remove the layers as the day gets warmer.
So, the question arises—what are some layers of clothes you can pack for your stay at Disney World in November?
Some must-haves include shorts, t-shirts, capris, thicker tank tops, jeans, long sleeve shirts, slacks, and light sweaters and jackets.
If you plan to catch the fireworks, nighttime parades, and stay up late at the park, I’d recommend you carry light hats, gloves, and mittens too.
You can also benefit from carrying a small blanket in your backpack.
After all, there’s nothing better than staying cozy and toasty warm in a blanket with your family as you wait for the nighttime parade or fireworks in the fairly chilly temperature.
You’re bound to do a lot of walking at Disney World; as a result, you will need several pairs of comfortable shoes depending on the number of days you decide to spend there.
Through personal experience, I’ve found that roaming with a pair of tennis shoes or sneakers works best in Disney World.
Not only do they keep you comfortable, but they also offer your feet enough warmth when the temperature drops.
And, as far as socks are concerned, you can make do with both short and long socks.
You can also bring sandals along with you. However, when picking them, make sure you only get sandals that are sturdy and comfortable enough for hiking purposes.
That way you can be certain that you won’t sustain foot injuries or get nasty blisters on your trip.
Flip flops work too if you plan on swimming during your stay.
Pack for rain
Since the weather in Florida is quite unpredictable, it’s a good idea to stay prepared for rainstorms.
To ensure you don’t get drenched while in Disney World, I’d suggest packing a travel umbrella and a disposable rain poncho.
Rain ponchos can especially be useful when you go for wet rides such as Splash Mountain and Kali River Rapids.
When it rains, it pours in Florida. But, when it gets hot, the Florida sun is a force to be reckoned with.
Therefore, it is a good idea to safeguard yourself from harmful UV rays by applying sunscreen on a regular basis.
You can also protect yourself from the hot sun by wearing hats. You wouldn’t want to be sunburnt in Disney World, would you?
Other outfits to consider
Irrespective of how the weather turns out in Disney World in November, you can still carry your swimwear and gear along with you.
In other words—you can still get some pool time, regardless of the weather conditions as most of the pools in Disney Resorts are heated.
If you’re planning a trip with your children, it’s a good idea to let them pick some of their favorite Disney-themed clothes.
Your children may even want to dress like their favorite Disney characters and as such, might want you to pack a costume or two.
Just remember to pack a light sweater or jacket to ensure your kids stay warm during the colder moments of the day.
Also, bear in mind to get some dress-up clothes for yourself and your family members if you intend to go to any signature dining locations during your stay.
The clothes needn’t be something too fancy, just suitable enough for the occasion.
Additional items to bring for your children
In addition to packing your child’s clothes, essentials, and personal care items (wet naps), it’s also a good idea to carry your child’s ID tag or card.
Having your child wear an ID tag or card lanyard can prove beneficial when they get lost in the theme park.
During such a dire situation, Disney cast members can easily identify your child and notify you of your child’s whereabouts through the contact information provided on your child’s ID tag.
It’s also a good idea to pack your child’s favorite snacks, games, and toys for the trip.
The thing is—more often than not, you will have to wait in line for a long time for many attractions.
Unlike you, your child may not have the discipline and composure to stand under the hot sun for a long time and as such, may turn into a monster.
During such an occasion, their favorite snacks, games, and toys, will keep them occupied and thus, prevent them from ruining both your and their Disney experience.
If you have young adults or teenagers in your traveling party, make sure they have their IDs on them too.
Also, ensure they pack essentials such as deodorant, face wash, toiletries, and other personal care items.
Trust me —you wouldn’t want them to face any embarrassing personal hygiene situation.
To make things more convenient, let them carry all their belongings, including chargers, headphones, and phones in their very own backpacks.
November is a good month to visit Disney World. With special events and holidays just around the corner, it’s a good time to enjoy all the fine things Disney has to offer.
Plus, it helps that the weather then is neither too warm nor too cold.

At Disney World in November, you’ll do just fine with shorts, t-shirts, capris, thicker tank tops, jeans, long sleeve shirts, slacks, and light sweaters and jackets.
If you plan to stay up late at Disney World to catch the fireworks and nighttime parades, I’d recommend you carry light blankets, hats, gloves, and mittens too.
