With nothing but cloud, storms and rain, if you looked at the weather forecast for Orlando in July, you might be tempted to give it a miss.

Don’t be fooled!

What Are the average temperatures in Orlando in July?

Pretty hot! With highs hitting over 90 degrees and humidity at almost full pelt, Orlando in July isn't for the faint hearted. Average high is 91°F/33°C and an average low is 75°F/24°C. Although it is hot and humid and subject to daily afternoon thunderstorms, normally the showers come and go in less than an hour or so. The theme parks quickly dry out as the sun once again replaces dark scudding clouds.

And there's always plenty of things to do in the rain.

What to pack for July in Orlando

A poncho and patience will be your best friends during July in Orlando and Kissimmee. There's no getting away from the fact that the parks will be busy, especially for July 4th. Dress very light, in light colors. And make sure you lash on the sun block, the rays will be fierce. Check out our packing tips.

July Events in Orlando & KIssimmee Florida

Meet The Author
Our Florida journey began over 2 decades ago when we were searching for somewhere warm for winters. We discovered Florida was the perfect choice. We started spending every winter there and absolutely loved it. Orlando quickly became our permanent ‘winter home’. We were true Snowbirds! We decided to make our commitment a little more concrete in 2005 and bought our first vacation home – Serendipity at Indian Creek. We soon discovered we LOVED being in the hospitality world, so we decided to expand a little. We purchased Sleepy Hollow in 2010. Five years later we came across Serenity Lake House in 2015 and just had to have it to complete our portfolio. We now spend half the year on Disney’s doorstep in Orlando,. The rest of the time we're either in our second home in Scotland overlooking a beautiful Scottish Loch, or enjoying time with family in Cyprus. Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it? Ours is served with Pixie Dust on top :)
