Walt Disney and Orlando Florida Tourism Numbers Down

While we were down in Orlando Florida, we noticed that travel and tourism is way down in the magical kingdom area. Although busy, the overall numbers are not where they used to be. We have not studied the Williamsburg market as of late, but we are pretty sure the numbers are not so great there either. While in Florida, we signed a number of new contracts and we are working on a national level now instead of just the Southern and Eastern part of Virginia. We are also working on bringing new deals to everyone to help make life more interesting.

In case anyone was wondering, tickets to the Disney parks went up about a month ago. Average price into any of the parks is now around $80.00 per person per day. Multiple days per person can bring the price down to about $60.00 per person. That's all pretty pricey. Add to that the $4.00 pretzel and the $4.00 soda per person and that's just a cheap snack, Disney is a very expensive venture these days.

In all fairness, there is no other place like it on earth and production is expensive. If you have never been there, we would recommend going and fairly soon before it gets even more expensive. It's worth the price when you see the show they put on and experience the Disney World difference.

Besides Disney, Orlando has so much to offer that one could not begin to do it all in even one intensive month. Seaworld, Universal Studios, all the dinner theaters, the shopping, the markets, Wet & Wild, Gator parks, glide boating, and so much more, the area is loaded with tons of fun and excitement. We will be bringing you more on this soon as we get through all the pictures we took and we will also be getting back to the local news soon too. With the economy in a slump, there are plenty of great deals to be had out there. Cheers for now.
