I'll tell you when NOT to go: over Spring Break.

Every high school/college kid is down there - overcrowding the restaurants, beaches, etc.

If you can take the heat, go right after school gets out in early June or wait until Oct.

@mihailll,

@jcboy,
We used to come down to WInter PArk for the art fest (forget what it was called). HAd great times and met some really good artists. I love the Arts n Crafts museums they have (Tiffany, Lallique, etc etc).

Wed rent a car , fill it up with bags of oranges and drive around . NAwlins and Florida are great this time of year. Its like a spring that youd wish would happen up north. You guys get all the flower smells and the warm weather, we dont get that happening at once. We get green and then a month later the hooneysuckle blooms.

@mihailll,
Thanksgiving, Christmas + New Year's, and Spring Break are the worst. (Worse even than the summer, which surprised me.)

Going around but not during those times seems to go well -- November before Thanksgiving, for example, or early December, or mid-late January through late February.

Friends of ours went in earlier January and there were still a lot of people, but then other friends went a couple of weeks ago and they didn't have a problem with lines.

Just saying.

@Gizzyluv89,
Yeah, we went in November and our first day it started out as 45 degrees in the morning, bright and sunny, warmed up to 70 in the afternoon, then clouds rolled in and it cooled off again, didn't rain that day but came close. We wore a lot of layers and were fine all day (except for schlepping around the shed layers when it got warmer).

The best times to go are:

After spring break, and before June, which is the start of the (hot and) rainy season.

October- November (before Thanksgiving).

In both instances the kids are still in school, and the snowbirds are gone, so things are relatively quiet, and the weather is great.

@mihailll,
Hello Friends,

Best time is between early Feb until early April. There are not as many other tourist around, prices are a bit cheaper, it doesn't rain so much, it is cooler (like in the 70's maybe 80's), & kids are in school, so if you want to have fun at Universal Studios or Disney, you have a better chance! Just the less crowds alone is worth coming in the earlier time of year! It gets a little busy during valentines weekend, but thats about it.

Thanks and Regards,
Jeff Lee
