Orlando in Winter

If you’re looking for a break that includes sun and warmth this winter, make sure Florida is on your radar. Once you’ve zeroed in on the Sunshine State, you’ll need to figure out just where you want to be. From the beach to the many towns inland with plenty to see and do, you’ll come to a decision in no time. Orlando in Winter and the surrounding area offer plenty of fun, rest, relaxation, and magic in one location, no matter what time of year.

Theme Park Holiday Festivities

The many Orlando theme parks and attractions deck the halls throughout the winter holiday season. Famed Orlando rides, attractions, and parks dress in their holiday best to attract visitors to a winter wonderland in the middle of a beautiful sunny and warm locale. Each Disney park puts its own spin on the holidays, as do the other parks – including Universal Studios, Sea Life Aquarium, LEGOLAND, and others. Amazing light shows, holiday traditions and foods from around the world, visits from Santa, crafts, activities, and more await visitors each day during the holiday and winter season.

Outdoor Activities

The year-round sun and warmth of Florida makes it a great destination, no matter what time of year. For those suffering from a bit of cabin fever due to cold weather, a getaway somewhere warm this winter is the perfect solution. You can get out and enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, tours around town, and more. The outdoor amenities at your rental and in the resort are open and available for your use, too. A bonus: the cooler weather means you can stay out doing what you love just a little longer, but don’t forget essentials like sunscreen and water.


Florida during spring break and summer can be packed with people. Families with younger children, college students on spring break from school, and locals alike jam the theme parks and beaches from coast to coast and everywhere in between. Winter sees fewer tourists, as many are committed to work and school back home, and scheduled breaks are few in the fall and winter months before the winter holidays. Break the mold and step away this winter for a trip full of fun but lacking in crowds. There are shorter lines for the best attractions and activities, too.


As with any vacation destination, the cost goes up in Orlando around peak tourist times. Summer, spring break, and other prime vacation times come at a premium for attraction tickets as well as air fare, rental vehicles, and everything else you’ll need to make your vacation complete. Visiting in the “off season” can mean discounts and lower costs as airlines, hotels, rentals, events, and attractions do their best to lure tourists during a time when those tourists are flocking to other winter destinations for snow sports, sleigh rides, and other winter activities.

Indoor Activities

While many days are sunny and warm, there is the occasional gloomy day in Orlando, but keep in mind, not all of Orlando’s best attractions are outside. If your day at Disney or LEGOLAND is canceled due to weather, there are plenty of indoor activities to enjoy. Winter concerts and shows by local artists, escape rooms, shopping, museums, and more can keep you busy for hours when the weather isn’t in line with your plans.

Increased Relaxation

Vacation is supposed to be about rest, relaxation, and your ability to recharge and go home rejuvenated to get back to your everyday life. Visiting Orlando in the winter means fewer inconveniences and problems arising from traffic, crowds, missing reservations, and other minor headaches that come when a tourist destination like Orlando is packed with people. You’ll enjoy a calmer stay this winter knowing everything will be just a bit easier when you’re not vying for attention and assistance with basic needs.
