Best time to take a vacation to Orlando

  • Best Time to Go

    Those who want to enjoy beautiful weather should book their Orlando vacations for the early fall instead of the summer. High temperatures during September and October are still in the mid-80s, but the risk of afternoon thunderstorms is much lower than in the summer. Early fall is also a great time to plan Orlando travel, since it is a relatively slow tourism period in the area. Hotel rates during fall and winter are usually lower than the peak rates of summer, so travelers may take advantage of cheap accommodations.
