For families: Just because Orlando is so obvious doesn’t mean it’s not worth featuring here, as it’s as much fun for parents as it is for children. Theme-parks wise, my money is on Universal Studios, whose Islands of Adventure section includes belly-laugh inducing Jurassic Park, King Kong and Hulk rides, and of course The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Flight length is around nine hours, direct from Dublin via Aer Lingus. Stay at Cabana Bay Beach Resort, which has a playful, kitsch 1960s aesthetic – and has Universal’s Volcano Bay water park literally on the doorstep, with free shuttle buses to/from Universal’s CityWalk. universalorlando.com
