'Shoulder season' is defined as a travel period between peak and off-peak seasons.
One of Orlando’s sexiest shoulders falls in the sweet spot between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Phenomenal hotel deals abound at every price point. Low rates, resort credits and package deals make last-minute long weekends, shopping or theme-park getaways and even romantic overnights a real possibility.
Plus, you can put the savings towards airfare, gifts for your loved ones or extra fun for yourself!
