“We would not have been able to see everything at the parks in the few days we visited without Bill’s help”
– Liz E. from Pennsylvania
When you book your tour with Touring Central Florida, you will be guided at the parks by owner and operator Bill Androckitis Jr. Even before you arrive in Central Florida, Bill will work with you to create a fully personalized itinerary, tailored for you and your family or travel group. More than just someone to keep you ahead of the crowds, Bill will make sure your family or group gets the most from your vacation experience by acting as your personal assistant, sharing details about the parks, and more.
Bill grew up in Northeastern Pennsylvania, where his affinity for amusement and theme parks developed at a young age, including visits to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios as a child. By the time he was a senior in high school, he began researching and building a website dedicated to the defunct parks that once dotted the landscape in the area he grew up. His love of Central Florida theme parks was reignited as an adult in 2007 when he once again visited Walt Disney World after several years away.
By 2012, that passion for theme parks and the Central Florida region drove Bill to relocate to the Tampa area in order to follow his dream of helping others make their own vacations to Walt Disney World and the other parks an incredible experience. Along with literally hundreds of visits to the area parks – including those at Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, SeaWorld Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and LEGOLAND Florida – Bill has also spent nearly a decade covering the parks and other attractions for several websites, including Pixels At The Parks, where he served as Editor.
After Pixels At The Parks shut down in 2016, Bill decided to combine his passion for writing about the parks & attractions across Central Florida with his travel services business, WDW Tour Company. Touring Central Florida was born, creating an online presence to share all the news & tips on the area parks and attractions as well as offer private guided tours.
In addition to covering parks and tourism in the region, Bill has also been interviewed and quoted as a theme park industry expert in a number of local and national publications and media outlets, including CBS 10 WTSP, Q105 WRBQ-FM, Tampa Bay Times, Tampa Bay Business Journal, Reader’s Digest, and more.
From his beginnings in planning his own trips and those of family and friends, Bill now offers his Central Florida theme park and attraction expertise to help others plan and perfect their own vacation through his tips and tricks, travel planning services, and personalized tours at the parks. Bill has the knowledge and passion to help turn a good vacation into a great one!
