With 78 million overnight visitors, Orlando is the number-one destination in the world. Once a hub for citrus and cattle, Orlando was put on the map as a tourist destination in 1971 with the opening of Walt Disney World. Today, Orlando is the world’s theme park capital with the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Universal Studios, Universal Islands of Adventure, SeaWorld Orlando, Gatorland and LEGOLAND Florida. Famous Florida sunshine and a mild winter make Orlando popular year-round, whether it’s visiting the attractions or riding on an airboat to spot alligators, playing a round of golf and sighting manatees at the natural springs.
