Why September is the Best Month to Visit Orlando

Your ticket to super end-of-summer savings

Universal Orlando Islands of Adventure
••• Visit Orlando

Wondering what the perfect time is to visit Orlando? You'd be hard pressed to beat September, a month when hotel rates are among the lowest of the year and crowds have thinned with the back-to-school season.

Admitted, the timing will not be ideal for most families whose kids have just returned to the classroom. But if your kids are still too young for kindergarten, or if you home school your children, this month couldn't be better.

It is the perfect time to take advantage of prices that most families simply have to leave on the table.

Visit Orlando offers a slew of online coupons that prove that September 2016 delivers many opportunities for savings. For families, it's a great opportunity to chop the cost of your visit. You can either print out offers and present a paper copy of the offer, or you can simply show the offer on your smartphone at the location.
