Orlando

There are smiles, and then there are heartracing, taste-bud tempting, once-in-a-lifetime smiles; those are the kinds of smiles waiting for you in Orlando. There’s Walt Disney World Resort that has to be seen to be believed – four theme parks and two water parks cover 69 square kilometres wrapped up with shopping at Disney Springs. Then there is Universal Studios Florida with two theme parks, including two exciting Harry Potter lands – Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley – as well as their own water park. There’s also entertainment at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and in contrast to the theme parks, Cape Canaveral is nearby on the coast, so put aside a day to visit Kennedy Space Centre. There is so much diversity, so much to do – you’ll need to come back again!

Relax as lush gardens, warm breezes and the distant sound of steel drums beckon. Six brightly coloured ‘island’ villages surround a sparkling lake with sand beaches, heated pools, a marina, bike rentals and a nature trail.

This is a fun, bright, retro themed resort right in the heart of Universal’s theme parks.
