Lapping up the fun at Lake Buena Vista

Making the most of Lake Buena Vista's magic

Lake Buena Vista weather is rarely anything other than warm and humid. This is Florida, after all, but the temperatures and crowds are definitely at their peak in the summer vacation months. Late spring or winter are good times to come when the heat is milder and the queues shorter. Don't leave it too late in the winter season, though, or you'll bump into the run up to Christmas. This is when the crowds increase, as families head south to make their seasonal wishes come true.

Natural features

Lake Buena Vista—views into Florida's wildlife

Lake Buena Vista itself is a wonderfully sculpted landscape that manages to blend colorful condos and bright-lit hotels with glittering lakes and languid canals. If you want to get up close to the wild splendor of the oceans, you couldn't be better placed. Seaworld Orlando lets you awe at orcas, dance with dolphins, and waddle among the penguins. But don't forget the Florida wildlife to be found outside the parks! Natural wonders such as the gentle manatee, the steel-eyed alligator, or the endless sweep of the Everglades are just a car trip away.
