You are encouraged to make your room reservations as quickly as possible in Orlando and, preferably, at the Rosen Centre Hotel on International Drive. March and April are typical months for spring breakers. Accommodations will fill fast and the room rates will increase. If you do consider booking outside the group room block it would be good to book a hotel within a short distance of the Rosen Centre Hotel as taxi fares are rather expensive. What you might save on the room rate will be lost on ground transportation expenses.

There is a five day cancellation policy prior to arrival. If you cancel less than five days, your credit/debit card will be charged a one night's room and tax penalty. 

If you would like to consider sharing a room with someone else, please sign-up here.

TRAVEL
The Orlando area in Orange County, Florida is a major travel destination because of the weather, theme parks, attractions, arts and culture, and outdoor adventures. Travelers get to Orlando via five airports that offer domestic and international flights. Although Orlando has two airports in the city limits, there are other fields that may suit your travel needs.

Orlando International Airport

Orlando International Airport (orlandoairports.net) handles 35 million passengers annually. There are 42 airlines -- 32 scheduled, five chartered and five cargo -- that use the airport to fly to 74 U.S. destinations and 17 international destinations. The airport's top domestic markets are New York, Chicago and Philadelphia, and international markets are the United Kingdom, Mexico and Panama. The airport's facilities are the third largest in the U.S., covering 23 square miles. Airline travelers have access to more than 100 retail, food and beverage outlets, as well as banks, hair salons, free Wi-Fi and a post office. A 445-room hotel is on the premises. There are 9,300 terminal parking spaces, which are free for the first 40 minutes. The airport, abbreviated MCO, is a short drive from downtown Orlando.

Orlando Sanford International Airport

Orlando Sanford International Airport (orlandosanfordairport.com) serves the area with a smaller presence than MCO; it is within 25 miles of Orlando. Terminal A and terminal B handle about 1.2 million domestic and 500,000 international passengers a year. This midsize airport -- abbreviated SFB -- was home to regional domestic airlines Allegiant, Vision and Direct Air at the time of publication. The terminals offer retail shopping, restaurant dining, a food court and beverage service. Travelers park in a covered parking garage; there is free shuttle service to surface parking lots.

Melbourne International Airport

Melbourne International Airport (mlbair.com) serves passengers who visit Orlando, but are also interested in the beaches, cruises and Kennedy Space Center. The airport (MLB) is about 65 miles from Orlando. At the time of publication it was served by two commercial airlines, a regional airline offering seasonal flights and a charter airline. The airport has three runways and a 200,000-square-foot terminal that has an atrium with a full-service deli-style restaurant and bar. Passengers can park across from the main terminal.

Daytona Beach International Airport

Daytona Beach International Airport serves the area within 60 miles of Orlando attractions. The domestic terminal is a 160,000-square-feet, six-gate complex; the international terminal is 60,000 square feet. At time of publication the small airport -- abbreviated DAB -- was served by two commercial airlines and a regional airline; in 2010 about 500,000 passengers flew from or to the facility. The parking is across from the terminal and the first 15 minutes are free. A restaurant serves the terminal.

Orlando Executive Airport

Orlando Executive Airport (orlandoairports.net/orl/) serves the corporate traveler with 24-hour service. The airport, abbreviated OEA, sits on 1,056 acres, is owned by the city, and serves as the main reliever airport for Orlando International Airport. Two operators serve the airport: SheltAir Aviation Services and Showalter Flying Services. There is an FAA staffed control tower. In 2009 the airport's aircraft operations totaled more than 108,000. Hotels, restaurants and shopping are within three miles of the air field.

WEATHER

Temperatures

The average temperature in the Orlando area in March is 65 degrees Fahrenheit, with an average high of 79 and an average low of 56. Although there is obviously variance, visitors to Orlando will generally find mild temperatures in March. The average daily humidity is 69 percent, falling to 50 percent in the afternoons. Keep in mind that humidity effects the real-feel of the temperature, making warm air feel warmer and cool air feel cooler.

Rain

March is typically rainy in the Disney area. Average rainfall for March is 3.5 inches, with an average of eight days of rainfall during the month. With spring rains in Florida, be on the lookout for occasional thunderstorms and lightning.

Severe Weather

The good news is if you plan to travel to Orlando in March, the likelihood of hurricanes is almost zero. Hurricane season kicks in from June to December. The bad news is that March includes the threat of tornado activity associated with thunderstorms -- yes, even in this vacation wonderland. Tornadoes are more likely in summer, but do occur in spring, when they can occur during the day or at night time. Keep a watch on the forecasts, and if necessary, take cover as you would at home.

How to Dress

If you are out and about expect warm temperatures during the day. Summer attire is appropriate. Evenings get cooler, so long pants and light jackets are needed. Even on cooler days, the bright sun will keep you warm. Wear a hat or visor to keep the sun off your face and out of your eyes. Bring swimsuits -- swimming is a favorite activity at the resorts. The pools are heated, so even on cooler days you can enjoy a dip. Pack rain gear for the possibility of showers during your visit. A plastic poncho is sufficient, and easy to roll up and stow when the showers pass. Expect air conditioning in the meeting rooms and public areas of the hotel and bring a sweater or jacket with you!
