Orlando Holiday Weather
Orlando Winter Weather Forecast: This winter expect temperatures to be between the 60’s and 70’s. Our usual coldest month of the year is January, but with average lows only reaching 50 degrees – we certainly can’t call ourselves a snow skiing destination. While you can most likely leave the heavy winter jackets at home, it does get cool enough for people to pull on the light and medium jackets. If you are trying to pack light, bring clothes that can be easily layered.
Orlando Travel Tips
Although we can’t help you out with a plane ticket- we do have a few tips to keep in mind: book early, be flexible with your dates, and be persistent. Travelers have 24hours to release their seat, which means that flight you thought was sold out, could possibly have an open seat tomorrow. Lastly, reports show that flying on the actual holiday tends to be the cheapest way to go.
