Best Time To Go
Travel to Orlando for year-round sunshine; there's no real off-season here. Just expect an afternoon shower or two, and pack accordingly. The very busiest times are from late May to just past Labor Day, almost all long holiday weekends, the winter holidays, and spring break—late March to April. You might want to skip out on Orlando travel during prime vacation periods to avoid standing on long theme park lines.
Roads are tailored for visiting tourists and very well signposted. The vast majority of attractions are a short drive from Interstate 4. If you don’t have a car, all the major parks and hotels run shuttles, which are mostly free to use, but can get crowded. Be advised that taxis can get expensive.
July is on average the hottest month, with an average high of 92°F (33°C). January is the coldest month, with an average high of 71°F (21°C).
Know Before You Go
If you’re visiting Orlando, do as much planning as you possibly can before you leave. It is not the place for spontaneous vacation decisions unless you’re fabulously wealthy. Book hotels that offer family discounts such as Kids Eat Free deals, have snacks to eat in the inevitable lines you’ll be standing in, and schedule indoor, air-conditioned shows for the hottest times of day.
