  • Published by Ozgur Tore

Visit Orlando President and CEO George Aguel announced that Orlando received a record breaking number of visitors last year.

orlando-59mlnOrlando welcomed 59 million visitors in calendar year 2013, setting an all-time record for U.S. destinations. The record-breaking figure represents a more than three percent increase over the previous milestone set in 2012.

"Thanks to the strong global marketing and sales efforts of our team at Visit Orlando and the leadership of our tourism members and community leaders who share a common vision for our destination, Orlando continues to lead the nation as its most visited destination," said Aguel.

Orlando is experiencing one of the most significant expansion periods in the destination's history. Universal Orlando Resort will open the world's first centrally themed, multi-park experience this summer by expanding The Wizarding World of Harry Potter across both of its theme parks. SeaWorld Orlando recently opened Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin - the biggest expansion in its company's history, while Walt Disney World Resort will complete a multiyear project that is doubling the size of Fantasyland when it debuts the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train coaster this summer.

By 2017, Orlando will be among the first destinations with on-airport intermodal facilities in the U.S. and the first airport in Florida to conveniently support air travel, ground transportation and rail.
