October is a great time to visit Disney World plus it’s also the start of free Disney Dining plan promotion. The temperatures are still a little warm but the crowds are low. The best part is you can enjoy the low crowds and still get to experience Halloween time at Disney World as well as Epcot’s Food and Wine Festival.
The Weather in Disney During October
October is some great weather at Disney World! You are in the tail end of hurricane season but it rare to have one hit during this time. The average high for the day in October is 84 degrees. As far as rain goes the average is 2.52 inches during October.
This is still shorts and tee shirt season for the theme parks but it’s not a bad idea to bring along a sweater or light jacket. Temperatures tend to fall more at night during this time of year. For more on what to pack check out our FREE: The Ultimate Disney Packing List.
