Orlando in June


Average temperature 23 – 33°c

It's incredibly humid and the start of the rainy season so you will probably encounter a rain storm or two during your visit.

April or May are the best times to visit with a family as it's hot and you'll have the chance to enjoy all the pools and waterparks (Liv would spend whole days at the pool if I let her!). June or July are really hot AND wet months so try to avoid these if possible or find shelter from the sun. September or October can be lovely as they aren’t too cold or hot and you’ll get a fair amount of sunshine. November or December are great months to visit if you want some cooler weather and you get to enjoy a Disney Christmas!
