It’s cold, it’s dark and it’s not quite Christmas – November isn’t exactly our favourite month of the year. But if you’re in Florida, you’re guaranteed to have a blast.
Apart from Bonfire Night, November is a bit of a non-event in the UK. On the other side of the pond, though, it’s a very different story. We know Florida is pretty spectacular all year round, but November is particularly brilliant. Not convinced? We’ll soon change your mind.
Since it’s term time in both the UK and America, November is one of the quietest times to visit Florida. We’re not suggesting you pull your kids out of school – but if you’re child-free or have tiny tots, this is the perfect time to go. You can shop ‘til you drop on International Drive without battling through loads of people, and enjoy low crowd levels at the theme parks. Less queuing and more rollercoaster-ing – win win.
Do you want to know what’s even better than smaller crowds? Smaller prices. While theme park tickets are the same price all year round, holiday prices fluctuate. It just so happens that November is one of the cheaper times to visit Florida, as long as you avoid Thanksgiving. So you can experience all the best bits, whatever your budget.
It’s called the Sunshine State for a reason. While we’re buying woolly jumpers and turning up the heating, Florida residents are slapping on the sun cream. The average temperature in November hovers around a toasty 25 degrees, so you’ll soak up plenty of vitamin D. You can return home with a first-class tan, while everyone else is rocking the pale-and-pasty look – just try not to rub it in too much.
If you’re someone who listens to Christmas songs in October, you need to go to Florida in November. Why? Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. Expect full-on Disney magic at this festive extravaganza. Kids will love the Christmas parade – there’s a line-up of Disney characters and, of course, Santa himself. And that’s not all. You can ‘oooh’ and ‘aaah’ at the fireworks display, watch live shows, and see Cinderella’s Castle lit up with glittering white lights. Mickey takes over the Magic Kingdom from 8th November onwards. If you want to add some Christmas sparkle to your holiday, grab a ticket on Disney’s website.
