What's Happening: Top things to do in Orlando in September

There are few things in the world as beautiful as a Florida sunset.


It's true—the state's natural beauty is unparalleled. But that doesn't mean it can't be improved upon by some of the fantastic events and activities happening around Orlando this month!


From outdoor adventures to indoor fun, there's something for everyone in September 2022. Read on to see what we're talking about.

OUFF DOWNTOWN ORLANDO - VIP Labor Day Weekend "Music, Film, Comedy, Food" 5-DAY ALL-STAR VIP PASS

Caroltyn A seemingly unknown sickness is spreading fast through the small town of Caroltyn, making the children of the town its first victims. Kofi, a 26 old woman formerly from Caroltyn, has a daughter named Laila that resides in Caroltyn. Laila becomes the next victim, which brings Kofi back to the town, despite her reasons for leaving. Shortly after coming back, Kofi discovers the increasing sickness is not a medical issue, but a demonic one. Unfortunately, when Kofi tries to explain this to the doctors and her family, the crazed explanation is dismissed; it’s not only hard to believe but Kofi’s credibility is nonexistent due to her past of being in a mental institution. In order to save Laila’s life, Kofi decides to fight the demonic entity, but to do that she has to battle her inner demons first and grow strong in her faith in order to defeat it. Derrick Hammond, Director James Hunter, Producer and President of Dibz Productions
