When to Honeymoon in Orlando
When to go:
Orlando has a subtropical climate, with two distinct seasons: the rainy season and the dry season. Lasting from June through September, the rainy season is hot and humid, with temperatures reaching into the thirties and frequent afternoon thundershowers. October through May are the dry months, when humidity is down and temperatures average just over 20 degrees Celsius during the day – perfect weather for a honeymoon in Orlando. Night time temperatures generally stay above 10 degrees even in the winter, so there is no need to pack a suitcase full of sweaters. A honeymoon in Orlando during the winter months will likely be most enjoyable weather-wise, but you can enjoy the heat and sunshine year round. Florida is known as the sunshine state, after all.
Direct flight with Virgin Atlantic can get you from London Heathrow to Orlando in less than 10 hours!
