Eye on Travel

Peter Greenberg Worldwide—The Waldorf Astoria, Orlando, Florida—July 8, 2017

Locations in this article:  Orlando, FL

This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Waldorf Astoria Orlando, nestled in the 482-acre Bonnet Creek Nature Preserve. George Hobica, founder of Airfarewatchdog.com, reports on hurricane season and travel insurance, and when you’re covered (and when you’re not). Want to ignore the brochures? Seth Kubersky, Author of The Unofficial Guide to Universal Orlando 2017 and contributor to the Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World, shares some of Disney’s park secrets. Craig Pittman, Author of Oh, Florida! How America’s Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country, talks about all things Florida—shark bites, sinkholes, cloud formations, and the fact that it’s the lightning capital of the western hemisphere. Pamela Landwirth, President and CEO of Give Kids the World, discusses the impact of organizations like Make-A-Wish—and how they give families a chance to travel together to Orlando—many for the first or sadly, the last time. She also talks about the special 186-room all-volunteer resort. Faiyaz Kara, Restaurant Critic for the Orlando Weekly, explains the boom in street food, and the growth in places serving Korean fried chicken and falafel. There’s all of this and more as Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the Waldorf Astoria Orlando.
