Early fall is a good time to visit as long as your visit ends before the holiday season begins. The best time to visit Orlando is between the months of January and April. The weather is pleasant and sometimes cool; there are fewer crowds, and room rates are more affordable. Temperatures in the summer can climb well into the 90s, but the humidity can make it feel like it’s in the 100s—and you can expect a rainstorm every day.
