Before we officially welcome the new year, I'd like to share how proud I am of the team at Visit Orlando, our membership partners and our destination for making 2022 a successful year!

As a community, we can be proud of many achievements. From the launch of our new global brand, "Unbelievably Real," in collaboration with Orlando Economic Partnership, to raising $186,805 for local organizations through Visit Orlando's Magical Dining and Orlando restaurants being recognized in the MICHELIN Guide.

While we will face challenges ahead, and there will be obstacles to overcome in 2023 and beyond, your Visit Orlando team will continue to work hard to help set up our destination for long-term success.

Visit Orlando's vision is to be the most visited, welcoming and inclusive travel destination in the world, and in 2023 we will continue to make strides towards that goal.

I wish you a wonderful holiday season with your loved ones and a very Happy New Year! We'll resume with our next edition of Tourism Matters Jan. 6.
