Day visit to Anna Maria Island from Orlando

After reading Melharv's report wondered if anyone else has done this trip from Orlando?

Will it still be OK to visit in October?

Thanks in advance.

We took a day trip to that area in Nov and it was great. We went to the Turtle Beach at the end of Siesta Key ( a little further south than Anna Maria ) and it was nice. Kids went shelling and swimming. It took about 2 hrs to get there but you may be able to get to Anna Maria quicker. The water should be warmer in Oct.

October is my favorite month on the island. Few tourists, warm days, nights cooling a bit, and the water is still usually nice and warm. It will take about 2 hours from Disney to the island.

It is SO worth it. We are driving down for a couple of nights in October, as we had such a lovely time there last year
