Enjoying the slow season in the Central Florida area is one of the best things one could possibly do. The weather is fantastic (mid-80s, cooler evening), the theme parks are less crowded that usual, wait times are lower, and people are - in general - more relaxed when visiting the area. Today you will get a taste of what a typical October morning looks like at one of the busiest parks in the world: Islands of Adventure. Enjoy this tour:
