The cold never bothered us anyway…well, that’s true for some of us. But for those who thought Disney World was warm and sunny all the time, they were in for a cold awakening when freezing temperatures descended on Disney this week. We’ve been reporting on the status of Disney World’s weather this January week, with Orlando water parks closing because of the temperatures, and now, we’re sharing what Disney guests have to say.

In case you’re not currently in central Florida or you haven’t been keeping up with the news, Orlando has been hit with a pretty major cold front. Temperatures have been as low as the 30s, and if you’re used to warm weather whenever you visit the Most Magical Place on Earth, then anything below 60 degrees can feel pretty shocking.

Although plenty of people across the U.S. are making light of the situation with jokes that Elsa has set off an eternal winter at the Magic Kingdom, there are plenty of Disney guests who don’t think it’s very funny at all.

Here’s what Disney guests are saying about Florida’s cold temperatures this week. Some are complaining about the weather, while others are acting like Elsa and saying that the cold never bothered them anyway. Take a look:

Keep in mind that no matter what time of year you plan to visit Walt Disney World Resort or any Disney theme park or destination around the world, it’s highly important to check the weather forecast in the weeks and days leading up to your trip. You don’t want to get caught in a cold front you didn’t expect and have to line up on Main Street to get a sweatshirt because you didn’t pack enough warm clothes. Also, remember that packing advice and other tips and tricks are just some of the many services you can get at no extra cost when you book your vacation with an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner at Academy Travel. 

If you’re currently in Disney World, stay warm! And if you had to postpone your trip because of winter weather conditions, we hope you make it to the magic soon!
