Some people say that summer is the best time to vacation to Orlando, while others prefer to visit in the winter. And while most people can agree, there’s never really a wrong time to take a vacation, but with a travel destination as popular as Central Florida, it’s difficult to decide the right time to visit. Although we wish you were always here vacationing with us, we know that’s not possible. So, if you’ve been thinking about taking a trip, here’s why now is the perfect time to vacation at Ramada Gateway!
New attractions, Universal’s Volcano Bay and Pandora – The World of Avatar, have opened
If you haven’t already heard, Universal Orlando Resort opened their first water theme park, Universal’s Volcano Bay and Disney opened Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney’s Animal Kingdom this summer! Whether you’re a tourist or a local, checking out these new attractions should be high on your bucket list. You may be thinking, aren’t crowds bigger when new attractions open? Well, the crowds were big, and the lines were long when the parks first opened, but have died down now that they’ve been open for a few months, making it the perfect time to vacation at Ramada Gateway. We’re just one mile from the main entrance to Walt Disney World and 15 minutes away from Universal Orlando Resort, so you’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from experiencing these new attractions!
Crowd levels are low with kids being back at school
With kiddos back in school and the busy schedules that brings, it’s difficult for local families to get out to the theme parks on the weekends. Crowd levels are known to be their lowest the second half of August through October, making it an ideal time to visit the Orlando area. Undercover Tourist offers a crowd calendar that predicts the crowds and the best time to visit each of the theme parks based on previous years and their experience. You can view their calendar here!
