It is important to clarify, however, that the city of Orlando, unlike Miami, offers lower temperatures in winter. In Miami the temperature is hot all year.

Even so, the weather is super pleasant most of the year. This was one of the main reasons why the Disney Group chose the city of Orlando to host the theme parks. Not only because of the more pleasant climate but also because of the lower incidence of hurricanes, as it is a more central city and is not exposed to hurricanes like coastal cities.
