New Record of 72 Million visitors to Orlando 2017

New Record of 72 Million visitors to Orlando 2017

The Orlando area has done it again. For at least 3 consecutive years Orlando has broken its own visitor record with 77 MILLION people coming in 2017 to enjoy all the theme parks, shopping and of course great weather. In comparison, the State of Florida as a whole had 116.5 million visitors in 2017 (also a record).

Therefore Orlando holds the reign as the tourism capital of the United States and vacation home property owners can expect their rental income to keep coming in with increased rental and occupancy rates.

This trend is expected to continue as Disney’s new Star Wars Land is set to open sometime in 2019, in addition Universal Orlando is acquiring more land for its own expansion plans.
