Does Orlando get Hurricanes?
Although hurricanes are common in Florida, they do have a tendency to weaken before they reach Orlando because of its distance from the sea. Hurricane season in Florida lasts from 1st June to 30th November, peaking in August and September.
All theme parks and other attractions in Orlando take storms seriously and will close outdoor attractions when lightning or heavy rain are present in the area. Fortunately, advanced warnings are given with hurricanes and their possible paths as soon as they are detected by the National Weather Service.
