1. Warm weather
Spring’s mild temperatures make it the best time for outdoor activities in Orlando. The average temperature in the spring ranges between 60 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit, making it comfortable for most people to be outside. This is in contrast to the summer months, when temperatures can reach 90°F or higher, making outdoor activities too hot for some people. Visitors can enjoy theme parks, hiking, biking, picnics, golfing, and other outdoor activities without feeling overheated thanks to the mild temperatures.
Besides, the mild temperatures in spring make it the ideal time to enjoy the area’s beautiful blooms, including the famous cherry blossoms at the nearby Harry P. Leu Gardens. Visitors can take their time enjoying the sights and smells of the gardens because the weather is pleasant. Overall, spring’s mild temperatures make it the ideal time to enjoy everything Orlando has to offer, both indoors and out.
During the spring, many outdoor activities are popular in Orlando, including:
1. Theme Parks
In Orlando, popular theme parks include Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld, which offer a variety of outdoor attractions and experiences such as roller coasters, parades, and live shows. Spring is an excellent time to visit these parks because the weather is pleasant and the crowds are smaller than in the summer.
Orlando has several world-class golf courses, many of which are open all year. Spring temperatures are ideal for hitting the links and enjoying a round of golf.
3. Hiking and biking
Hiking and biking trails can be found at several nature preserves and state parks in the area. Spring is an excellent time to visit these trails because the weather is mild and the blooming flowers and greenery provide stunning scenery.
4. Boating and fishing
The mild spring weather is ideal for boating and fishing; visitors can rent a boat and go fishing or cruising in nearby lakes and rivers.
5. Outdoor festivals
The EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival at Walt Disney World, which features a variety of outdoor activities and displays, is a great time to visit Orlando in the spring.
These are just a few of the many outdoor activities available to visitors in Orlando during the spring. With mild temperatures and fewer crowds, spring is an ideal time to discover everything the city has to offer.
2. Lower crowds
In Orlando, spring is considered a “shoulder season,” which means it falls between the peak tourist season (usually in the summer) and the off-season (usually in the fall and winter). When compared to the peak season, the weather is mild, the crowds are smaller, and prices for accommodations and activities are typically lower.
The shoulder season also offers a more relaxed atmosphere, with fewer tourists around, making it easier for visitors to explore the city and enjoy the local culture. This can also be advantageous for families with children because the theme parks are less crowded, allowing children to enjoy the rides and attractions with less waiting time.
Spring being considered a “shoulder season” for tourism in Orlando results in smaller crowds at theme parks and other attractions for a few reasons:
Spring weather in Orlando is mild, but not as hot as summer. This makes it less appealing for some visitors who prefer the hotter summer weather.
2. School schedule
Spring is also when many schools are in session, which means that families with children may not be able to take a vacation during this time due to school commitments.
Prices for accommodations, flights and theme park tickets tend to be lower than during peak season, which can make it more affordable for visitors to plan a trip.
All these factors combined result in smaller crowds at theme parks and other attractions, which means that visitors can enjoy shorter wait times for rides and attractions, and have a more relaxed experience overall. This can make for a more pleasant and enjoyable vacation experience, as visitors can avoid the long lines and crowded conditions that can be a part of peak season travel.
It’s worth noting that even though spring is considered shoulder season, it can still be busy during weekends, holidays, and some events, so it’s advisable to check the schedule of the theme parks and plan ahead if you want to avoid peak crowds.
3. Special events

5. Affordable prices

However, during the shoulder season, demand is still relatively strong but not as high as during the peak season, so prices tend to be lower. This is also true in Orlando, as many visitors prefer to come during the summer when the weather is warm and the kids are out of school, or during the holidays when the theme parks are decorated and there are special events.
