depends on what you want to do! if it's specifically theme parks, I think October/first few weeks of Nov/first few weeks of Dec are ideal. Also first few weeks of May is great for Theme Parks AND beaches.

Early May, late October, early November, or early December have been our favorite times.

Have gone in September for the free Disney Dining several times now, but it's too hot, humid, and rainy otherwise.

June, July, and August times are very hot, very humid, very rainy, and very crowded.

Those months, other than Xmas and Easter, are the least ideal time to be in Orlando, due to the weather and crowds.

We have been to Orlando serveral times and I think the first three weeks in November is the best time to go lowest rainfall we didnt get any last year...also no crowds and around 70f to 75f...

We have lived in the Orlando area for 17 years now. I feel that September has been the worst month of the year, November the best...weather wise. October through December is mostly beautiful. January can be cold, but has been hot too! February is usually perfect, and March too, but March has been hot too. April usually nice, and in to May-June-July-August...these can go up and down as far as weather. As far as parks go, I understand that summer is packed, Thanksgiving week is packed and Christmas time packed. Also spring break times can be crazy and it extends over a period of time because schools have different weeks off in April. So, there is no perfect answer, but it depends on what you are looking for!

I like September and March best.

Dont like December and January as I always seem to catch a bad cold. Its not just me! The TV is full of adverts for cold cures.

October without a doubt!

The weather is still lovely and warm, but a lot less hot and humid than the summer months. The crowds are much quieter than July & Aug.

Plus Halloween in Orlando is ace, so we alawys go the last two weeks in Oct and love it.
