The Theme Park Capital of the World

Orlando is a place where visitors both young – and young at heart – can immerse themselves in over a dozen amazing theme parks. Constantly introducing new attractions (Star Wars Land and The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ to name but two), the big players, such as Walt Disney World®, Universal Studios®, SeaWorld® and Legoland® are all vying to be the star attraction and grab a bigger piece of the American pie, which saw 105 million visitors descend on the Sunshine State last year.

Eating & Drinking in Orlando

The cuisine of Florida is one of most exotic styles of food in the United States, and is as diverse as the people who live here, with strong influences from South and Latin America, as well as the Caribbean. A history of immigration from its nearby neighbours such as Cuba and the Bahamas has created a fusion of cultures, commonly referred to as Floribbean cuisine.

Florida´s warm climate allows many tropical fruits to thrive, including mango’s and coconuts – and as the largest citrus producer in the U.S, fruit is used to make many dishes.
