OK! I have read all the previous answers and of course, I was just joking about the running on the stove thing. I (living in S. Fla for 30yrs) find it easier to run when the temp is high(between 85-90), as long as I drink plenty of fluids. My wife actually rides her bike next to me with water and "GU" in her basket.
As for training for the hot weather, I am not sure a treadmill without fans will do it. I run on the treadmill all the time, (It rains and lightening is very dangerous here) and find myself actually chilled about halfway through my long runs. Not to mention the fact that I could almost fall asleep with boredom, and falling off the treadmill at he gym is pretty embarrasing.
I read that at the start of last years Disney marathon the temp was 40 something degrees, so I really don't think that the hot weather training will even be a factor. If I'm not mistaken, its really not the heat that is the problem its the humidity,, but it will be 40% in Jan. so no problem there either.
Don't sweat the hot weather, as long as you have trained for the run, I really don't think that the it will be very hot in January.
Good luck and drink..drink..drink.
