      Beat the deep freeze of winter and enjoy the warm Florida sun as you enjoy being a tourist in the number one tourist destination in North America. Enter into Orlando’s world-renowned hospitality and tourism industry as you go behind the scenes at some of the best hotels and restaurants the city has to offer. Learn what it takes to handle the heat as you take part in cooking classes and learn the ropes of Southern hospitality.

      Enjoy a relaxing afternoon along the sunny beach shores and stop by Dunedin to watch the Toronto Blue Jays at their spring training home. Then hold on tight as you jump on board the Hogwarts Express and experience life through the eyes of your favourite character at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
