- The sun is hottest between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. – remember to stay hydrated and apply sunscreen.
- Renting a car is recommended. In Orlando, getting around by car is convenient thanks to the many surrounding highways. Headed for Disney? Shuttles, boats and monorails service the theme parks.
- If you’re going to Miami, you can explore different flight options at the nearby Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport, which is about 20 minutes from Miami.
- If you’re visiting a theme park: buy tickets in advance, plan to arrive early in the morning (the quietest time of day), and bring sunscreen, comfortable shoes and water. And, pace yourself; take breaks throughout the day.
- Be prepared for mini bursts of rain, even if rain is not in the forecast. Have a poncho or umbrella handy.
