Best time to visit Orlando
Orlando is known for having a subtropical climate throughout the year. The weather is always perfect to visit this fun-filled city. Due to the fact that Orlando is a major family destination, the number of visitors vary seasonally and is mostly dependent on school vacation schedules.
Peak-seasons fall between March and April, mid-June to mid-August, and mid-December to early January, as most kids are on break during these periods. If crowds are something you don’t want on your vacation, then the best months of the year to visit would be May, September, November to early December, and at the end of January. The low seasons are the best time to visit Orlando, as there are less crowds and prices are less inflated.
