Compared to other cities in Florida, Orlando's seasons are unique due to its location in the center of the state as many major cities are more coastal in Florida. It is equidistant from both the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, making it a great location for day trips to the beach if Disney World, which attracts millions of visitors each year, isn't your cup of tea. During peak travel season, traffic around Disney can be heavy, so it's important to plan accordingly or get lost in EPCOT.
