Epcot International Food & Wine Festival

Autumn is traditionally a time of plenty and of harvest celebration and there is no better place to celebrate and give thanks than at Epcot’s International Food and Wine Festival, held every Fall at Disney World’s Epcot Center in Florida. My mouth waters at the mere thought of it! It is my favourite event at any of Central Florida’s theme parks.  This year’s festival began on 25th September but there...

October Events

I love October in Florida. The parks are quiet. The weather is pleasant – still warm, but less humid – and tropical storms become more unlikely than at their August peak. Plus, there are so many wonderful Fall and Halloween themed events to choose from. Here’s my pick of the month. October 2015 Epcot Food and Wine Festival: all month. Epcot is an amazing place; one of my favourite parks....

See ya later Alligator!

Have you visited Gatorland? It’s one of my family’s favourite places in Central Florida and here’s why I think you should consider adding it to your Orlando itinerary. Florida has some unique and amazing natural flora and fauna. Not least the American alligator. And it is to this beast that Gatorland (the clue is in the name!) is dedicated. It offers you a rare (and safe!) opportunity to get up...

Disney versus Universal?

Should you go to Disney or Universal? Or is it possible to pack a trip to each into the one holiday? Each park offers different things, of course. And really what you can pack in is going to depend on the time you have available. But here’s my experience of the way to go… Disney Disney is magical. For little kids, nothing can beat the Magic Kingdom. Whether they fancy...

3 great ideas for down days with kids in Orlando

Every now and then, you need a chill-out day. These low-octane activities are perfect for keeping the kids amused without the adrenaline highs (or crashes!). We love Disney, Universal, Legoland – the parks are the main reason many visitors come to Central Florida. But a whole week of amusement parks? We’d be gibbering wrecks in the corner if we had to do 7 full days back to back! They’re fun…...

Disney’s creepiest abandoned theme parks

No one can match Michael Crichton in the abandoned amusement parks stakes, of course. When it comes to abandoned theme parks, that fictional island off the coast of Costa Rica – the one with the pterodactyls in the skies around it – has to win hands down. But, back in the real world, the Walt Disney Corporation has some of its own amazingly creepy abandoned sites right here in Florida....
