What's Happening in Orlando in September

What's Happening in Orlando in September

September is a wonderful time to visit the Orlando area. The schools are all back in session, so if you’re traveling with younger children, or with an adults-only group, you can expect lower crowds than you would in the summer months. The weather starts to cool down and the typical daily storms aren’t quite as powerful (though it is Hurricane season, so there is a possibility of a larger storm rolling though).

September is also the start of the Halloween season in both Universal Orlando and Walt Disney World with the Halloween Horror Nights and Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (respectively).

So here’s a rundown of everything going on in Orlando in the month of September.

What’s New in Orlando?

There are big changes happening in Walt Disney World this Fall. Galaxy’s Edge has officially opened in Hollywood Studios in WDW. This fully immersive experience takes you to the planet of Batuu, where the Resistance clashes with the First Order daily, Smugglers Run their goods through the local shipping lanes and echos of an old order are waiting for you in surprising places.

There is a new addition to the show this year as well! You can read more about that in our post on how Jack Skellington is on Stage during the show!

Halloween Horror Nights

Universal Studios is the place to go if you want a truly terrifying time at Halloween. With 10 horrifying maze-like houses, zones dedicated to full contact chases and an age advisory of 13 and up this event isn’t for the faint of heart!
