Home to Harry Potter and Mickey Mouse, it’s no wonder Central Florida gets lots of attention, but the priceless characters are only two of the many magical attractions for holidaymakers


From Crystal River to Bradenton on the Gulf coast and from Ormond Beach to Vero Beach on the Atlantic, there’s non-stop fun and fantastic sights and activities to be discovered in this magnificent middle chunk of the Sunshine State.


And almost smack bang in the


centre is the entertainment capital of Florida and theme park capital of the world, Orlando. So let’s start our tour of Central Florida here. The sheer scale and brilliance of the theme parks capture everyone’s imagination. Universal Orlando has opened a second area dedicated to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, Diagon Alley, and just like the original Hogsmeade, it has extraordinary sets, rides, shops and special effects. Universal’s two parks, Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure, with thrill coasters and children’s themed areas, deserve a two-day visit, so families should try to stay at one of their hotels, which range from the new budget Cabana Bay Beach Resort to the plush Portofino Bay. Walt Disney World’s four parks, Animal Kingdom, Epcot, Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, never fail to impress visitors – there’s a touch of magic

everywhere. To take advantage of dining offers and early admission into the parks, stay in one of their on-site hotels.


Marine life shows are the highlight of SeaWorld, but it also


heralds itself as a conservation centre. It has its roller coasters too – Manta is breathtaking – and don’t miss the colony of penguins in Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin.
