Happy Labor Day Weekend!
Isolated thunderstorms and daytime temperatures in the high 80s are expected this weekend in the Orlando area. The key word is “isolated” so don’t let the chance of rain put a damper on your plans for the holiday weekend. For an up-to-the-minute Orlando weather forecast, click here.
There usually isn’t a significant increase in crowd levels over Labor Day weekend. Many guests have already returned home for the start of the school year, but it is a popular weekend for locals who want to take advantage of the extra day off of school and work. The headlining attractions will still have long wait times and with Undercover Tourist’s apps you’ll know what to expect.
