    Hi there, Brandy!

    Your observation on the weather is totally accurate/ While much of the country is celebrating the onset of fall, Florida is still enjoying beach-ready temperatures. In Orlando, historical data shows that the average daily humidity is 91%, while the nighttime average is 65%. You'll find temperatures in the high 80sF during the days, and the nights in the mid-70sF.

    You're coming at a reasonably good time for crowds. The Epcot International Food and Wine Festival, a hugely popular event at Walt Disney World, begins this year on September 28. While you'll see a surge in attendance that weekend, the week before should be of average attendance.

    You might want to check a site like, which uses a combination of historical data and realtime reporting to determine crowd levels for a day.

    Have a wonderful trip!

    See you later, celebrator,
