We don't have any special knowledge of the hurricane schedule for any year.
A specific Hurricane usually starts off on the coast of Africa, and forecasters will start speculating on landfall 7-14 days in advance. As the storm approaches the US the location of landfall gets narrower. Orlando is relatively safe from a direct hit. Once a hurricane makes landfall it loses energy. By the time it travels 100 miles to reach Orlando the storm's strength is much less. Hurricanes mostly bring rain to Orlando.
