When you’re deciding when to plan your vacation to Orlando, it’s a good idea to keep in mind what the weather will be like, as well as how busy it will be. Luckily, Orlando tends to enjoy a fantastic climate all year round. Although temperatures can soar in the summer, in the winter months, you can expect it to still be very warm and comfortable. In summer, you may experience some flash downpours, but these tend to be warm and over quickly.
However, tourism can pick up significantly in peak travel season; that includes the summer months, around the festive holiday season, and at Easter. This is because schools around the world are broken up, so families tend to choose this time to travel. Though it shouldn’t impact your vacation too much traveling in peak times, if you are hoping to visit Orlando’s main theme parks, as well as its most popular sites and attractions, you may find wait times and queues are longer than they otherwise would be in the low season.
