Epcot has the Food & Wine Festival and there is plenty of holiday fun to be found at all of the Disney Resorts! If you are planning a trip to Disney World in November, here is what you can look forward to experiencing…
Guide to Going to Disney World in November
Each of the Disney World parks is decked out for Christmas. There are holiday wreaths, Christmas trees, window displays, and even holiday music pumped through the speakers!
Magic Kingdom is decorated for Christmas during the first week of November.
You will be surprised at how quickly they switch from their Fall decorations to Christmas decorations. It’s like overnight.
Epcot adds its festive decorations & topiaries throughout November. The closer you get to the end of the month, the more you will see!
Animal Kingdom doesn’t do as much as the other parks when it comes to decorating, but you will see a huge Christmas tree at the entrance and small, subtle details like Christmas wreaths and greenery hung in the park.
Hollywood Studios does a great job with decorating at Christmastime!
You will find Christmas displays throughout the park and some other special features that you can only see this time of year, including a meet & greet with Santa!
Hollywood Studios decorates for Christmas starting at the end of the first week in November.
Disney World Resorts
Midway through November, you will even find that the Disney Resorts start transforming into winter wonderlands!
One of our favorite Disney Resorts to visit during the Christmas season is the Grand Floridian where you will find a giant Christmas tree and life-size gingerbread house.
What is going on at Disney World in November?
November is a great time of year to visit Disney World. Here are some of the things going on in November:
EPCOT Food & Wine Festival
You don’t have to be a foodie to enjoy the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival.
Running the entire month of October through Thanksgiving is this FREE event at EPCOT where you can dine on sample food plates and see free concerts at the amphitheater.
Epcot International Festival of the Holidays
You will find storytellers, festive decorations, food, and music!
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party is one of the best parties at Magic Kingdom.
This extra ticket experience features special holiday fun like opportunities to see Disney characters dress for Christmas, holiday goodies, a Christmas parade featuring Santa Claus, and “Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks,”
Weather in Disney World in November
The average high temperature in Orlando during November is 78º and sunny!
The humidity is gone, so while it is warm, it is not sticky like it is in the summer months.
This marks a much drier season for Florida, and while it can rain, most likely you won’t see it rain enough to dampen your visit to the parks!
What should I wear to Disney World in November?
You are going to want to make sure you pack clothes for warm weather and comfortable shoes.
The mornings could be cool and so can the evenings once the sun goes down, so be sure to bring a lightweight sweater or sweatshirt.
Those attending the Christmas Party or planning to visit Magic Kingdom should make sure to wear a Disney Christmas t-shirt because you can get a great photo for your Christmas card!
November really is a wonderful time to visit Disney World and we hope that this gives you some things to look forward to experiencing if you choose to visit during this time of the year!
