There is a growing Middle Eastern and South Indian population in the Orlando Metro area. Pine Hills and Eatonville are in the Metro Area but not inside the city proper. Pine Hills is a higher crime area.

Thank you!

Yes there is, not as large as hispanics but larger then asian or atleast more spread out the asians seem to mostly stay around mills and colonial and the muslims more on the west side around pine hills and kirkman areas.

There's diversity here in Orlando, but I'm afraid you'll only find any Arabs or Muslims in the UCF area, way on the East side of town and occasionally in the suburbs here on the East side of town. You probably would have more luck finding them in the amusement park areas of town and in Kissimmee by Disney. These parts of town are highly diverse, but there also very commercial and not very residential. People from all over the world, including Moroccans (I know Epcot Center has a Morroccan restaurant), work at Disney. Other than that, sorry. You won't have much luck. Orlando, as well as the other Florida cities, are mostly places where you can find Haitians, black Carribeans, and a ton of Latinos. I think the racial majority of Orlando though is white.
