When is the best time to visit Orlando? Well, most tourists visit Orlando between June and August, while some during March and April. For me, the less busy times for tourism correspond to the best weather in the Orlando area, so summer may not be the best time since it is exceptionally busy with families who are making a trip while kids are on summer vacation. While visiting when the weather isn’t so hot or during winter means less people in the area and that provides some advantages, but you will be able to enjoy cooler weather. So it all depends on you..
Summer – summer season begins mid-June. Highs from mid-June to mid-September are in the mid 32°C often being reached by 10-11AM, and lows in the 23°C.
Autumn – autums season varies much more from year to year than Spring. It’s from September to mid-October. The first cold front of the season will usually pass between mid and late October, plunging highs into the 24°C and lows into the 12°C and high 10°C
Winter for me is the best time to visit Orlando, though it’s cold, there are less people and you can take advantage of their Holiday promos. Winter is much the same as November and December. Highs are in the 24°C, lows in the 12°C, affected every week or two by cold fronts.
If you’re looking for the cheapest souvenir shops in Orlando, then head on to International Drive, Orlando, FL. Here, you’ll a lots of shops, wherein several of them are chinese-owned shops, where you can buy gifts cheaper than in the Disney parks. You’ll also find there, the Payless ShoeSource, a place where you can buy cheap US Shoes.
If you’re staying in Orlando for a number of days, then cooking, and eating in your hotel room is recommended to extend your stay or probably will help you save some cash. Head on to Publix Supermarket (near the intersection of E Colonial Dr and Shine Ave N), a great grocery store where you can find almost everything to stock up on food stuff. You’ll find chicken, pork, steak, vegetables, desserts, condiments, milk, soda, beer, water, rice and chips. Everything is cheaper, and it is probably the best supermarket here in Orlando.
The best time to visit Orlando is when other people aren’t, basically during the months of September through May, when U. S. schools are still in session, except on school holidays like Christmas, Easter, etc. The weather is humid through the end of October, with more moderate temps being November through March. Actually, be prepared for any kind of weather. I recommend the the first few weeks of December! It is a great time to go, and a place to visit is the Disney World’s Epcot, for you’ll get to experience all of the different countries dressed in their holdiay best. On these days, it’s warm while the evenings are cool!
Guys, beware of the street vendors that are offering free or discounted theme park tickets. These are just gimmicks that will cost you money and time. You will end up having to go on a 1.5 hours minute tour, rather than 2-3 hours, with someone trying to sell you a timeshare and they are relentless.
If you really want discounted tickets it’s best to use online resources. I recommend Ticket Mania.com and orlando tourest information center.
In Orlando, if you need to re-fuel your car, you’ll be surprised if you’re new here for the procedure is different to the UK and Europe. You’ll experience waiting for hours for a fuel pump. And if you will pay cash in a gas station, you have to go into the gas station first and pre pay for the fuel. Reminder: Make sure you estimate the quantity correctly for they will not give you any refund. You can then use the fuel pump and put the amount you paid for into the tank. Tip: use a credit card so that you can pay at the pump, saves you time!
