Why January Is the Best Time of Year to Visit Orlando Theme Parks

the Best Time of Year to Visit Orlando Theme ParksWith year-round excitement and on-site entertainment, there’s no wrong time to visit Central Florida theme parks. However, if you’re looking to buy tickets when the prices, lines, and forecast are just right, you might want to block your schedule out at the beginning of the year. Here are five perks that make January the best month to book your stay around Orlando’s most exhilarating attractions.

Frugal Flights  

For those who want to cut down on spending while also taking the whole family on an unforgettable vacation, January has the most miles to take advantage of. Once the holiday season slows down, airfare drops to surprisingly low rates. In fact, January flights to Orlando, on average, cost 11% less than average ticket prices for the rest of the year.

Off-Season Schedule

By mid-month, schools are back in session for the start of the off-season—which cuts out a huge chunk of theme park traffic. Instead of standing in line for hours or walking in circles looking for a place to rest your feet, you can take your trip at your own pace. Enjoy shorter wait times, quicker access to park cuisine, and more room to roam.

Exclusive Events

January in Orlando might have less foot traffic, but that doesn’t mean theme park events are slowing down. Here are some of the top events that kick off the New Year in Central Florida.

  • SeaWorld Three Kings Celebration – Immerse yourself in Latin culture and cuisine from January 1­­–6.
  • Epcot® International Festival of the Arts – Celebrate all forms of art at this tasteful event open January 17 to February 24.
  • Rock the Universe™: Florida’s Biggest Christian Music Festival – Bring faith and your favorite music together on January 24 and 25.

Wonderful Weather

Florida heat can be a little hard to handle, which makes January the perfect month to spend your day outside at a Central Florida theme park.
