Nope, not really lol. They just scare the **** out of me, not my idea of fun.



You're bothered by people having different preferences from you? Seriously?
I like to believe that people know what they're talking about, but I honestly don't believe that people know what they are talking about if they say they would prefer walking around a giant theme park in 26'C with 23'C dewpoints rather than 23'C and 13'C dewpoints. I don't think it's a matter of preferences. It's a bit like saying "For a day at the beach, which weather would you prefer: 26'C and sun or 18'C and cloudy".

And day length does matter. Of course you'd prefer it being bright instead of dark at 5:00, although I could understand if someone would like being at a theme park at night. Still, it matters. Now, tell me what Orlando has that Anaheim doesn't. Anaheim and Orlando have pretty identical temperature matches for every month (they don't have to be the same month) except Orlando has got more of the months above 28'C high. What Anaheim has in every single one of those months however is more sunshine, less rain and less humidity, all which without a doubt you DO want for a theme park. I can't buy that you'd actually want rain or humidity on a theme park... I guess SOME people could prefer clouds but the other two, just no. And I can't buy that you'd prefer 28'C over 24'C when queuing for hours. Just no. BS.

So please tell me what it is that you personally find more attractive about Orlando, because I don't like disbelieving people.

I'll go with Anaheim although it looks like it could get a little boring, it's sunny and comfortable for the majority of the year.

I almost fell out of one of those at a fair when I was like 10 years old, that experience scarred me for years lol. Those fair rides scare me the most, the fact that they can be taken apart and rebuilt with ease is unsettling. I love theme park rides, however.

I used to be the same exact way until fairly recently (19-ish), I just started liking them out of nowhere.

Orlando: summer funderstorms > monotony of no rain for 6 months. October through April delivers plenty of "Anaheim-like" weather (sunny with warm days and cool nights) with the occasional cold snap and frontal system. I think Orlando would also feel warmer than Anaheim in winter when temperatures are matched due to the higher sun angle and longer daylight hours.

Paris and Tokyo are too chilly in winter.

What a bunch of s*** climates. For a theme park, ill pick Anaheim for the most sun and least rain. Could be warmer though.

I went to Disneyland in late March of 2011 and it got up to 93° in next door Fullerton that day, warm enough for you? Lol

That was a heat wave. A March day could just as easily have highs in the 50s with rain and no sun the whole day. In Orlando, even winter rain is likely to be accompanied by temperatures in the 70s with sun afterwards. Florida cold snaps are usually accompanied by clear skies (even if colder than L.A's cold snaps) and are mostly restricted to the heart of mid winter.


Right now, Anaheim is sitting at 42F at 11PM while Orlando is sitting at 70F at 2AM.
Forecast high tomorrow in Anaheim will be 59F while Orlando will hit 86F.
Even when Anaheim gets in the 80s (or even 90s in winter), nights will be in the 50s.
People take vacations in December to warm places to escape the cold so Orlando is probably a better choice a mid-winter vacation unless you are unlucky to get a cold snap (which would mean something like 25/45 in Orlando while a "cold snap" in Anaheim would be more like 35/55).
