Travelers flock annually to Central Florida for its year-round sunshine, beautiful nearby beaches, plentiful attractions and big-name theme parks like Walt Disney World® Resort, Universal Studios Orlando® and SeaWorld Orlando®. But the Sunshine Sate is not without reprieve from Mother Nature. Spring ushers in like a lion, and summer brings hearty afternoon thunderstorms—often welcomed for cooling high temperatures. Informed vacationers refuse to let rain spoil the fun. Thousands of travelers visit Orlando every year through Best Vacations Ever promotional vacation packages (800-656-2780), saving hundreds of dollars with complimentary accommodations for more fun money for extra activities.
