Visiting Orlando in September
Orlando is the most popular family destination in the world, hosting over 57 million people each year, and for good reason. “The City Beautiful,” as it’s known, is home to 9 of the top 25 theme parks in the world, and is only a short drive away from some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches.
But maybe those big summer crowds aren’t for you, and you’d rather take a family trip during a calmer season. With the kids back in school, temperatures falling and plenty to do, September is the perfect time for you and your family to enjoy all that Orlando has to offer!
