What to wear in Orlando?

Now that I have fully transitioned my wardrobe into Fall/Winter I am travelling to Orlando Florida this Wednesday for 7 days. Going to do Disney World, Cirque du Soleil, etc

So... what should I pack? It will be the middle of November but in Florida (daytime temps high 70s to low 80s) so do I pack for high Summer (e.g., pink linen pants, spectators, etc)? Is it eternal Summer in Florida or is there some (however small) nod to the changing seasons?

Also, can anyone recommend some good to very good (i.e., food, ambiance, decorum) restaurants in the Disney area (I am staying at the Dolphin) or pretty close by. I won't be renting a car.

Here in Florida we like to pretend we have a fall. Miami is summer colors year round, but in Orlando we do observe fall colors (read: sweaters thinner than pique polos). Also the standards for fashion aren't terribly high here.

Orlando is possibly the worst dressed city I have been to. I think Tampa is a close second. Pack whatever you want; noone will care or notice a difference.

Having lived in Orlando for a year, I second this.

Try the Flying Fish Cafe at Disney's Boardwalk, pretty easy walk from your hotel. California Grill at the Contemporary Resort. If you like exotic, Jiko and Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. Too bad you just missed the Food and Wine Festival at Epcot, but a meander through the World Showcase is great for grazing and pub crawling. Spoodles, also at the Boardwalk is great for tapas-especially if the weather is warm and you can sit on their porch.
