Visit Orlando Tourism Matters

November 23, 2022


According to AAA, Orlando is the No. 1 Thanksgiving Destination based on flight, hotel and rental car bookings for Thanksgiving week.

As our destination welcomes an influx of visitors from around the world at this busy time of year, it's important to recognize and celebrate our hard-working hospitality industry employees creating incredible experiences and lifelong memories for our guests.

Because of them, Orlando remains the destination of choice for millions of visitors, which in turn generates billions of dollars in economic impact across our community.

On behalf of our entire team at Visit Orlando, I wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving! And don’t forget to say an extra “thank you” to Orlando’s fantastic hospitality workers — the housekeeper, waiter, ride attendant and many others — you may encounter throughout the busy holiday season. They all deserve our ongoing appreciation!

We look forward to resuming our normal Tourism Matters newsletter next week — and hopefully seeing you Dec. 9 at Visit Orlando’s Year-End Celebration Luncheon.
