Spring breakers from across the country are heading to Central Florida, and many of them are hoping to get into Walt Disney World and other Orlando-area theme parks.
There are very few tickets left for select parks. However, Disney’s website shows no tickets available for any of their four parks, with Disney’s Hollywood Studios, being sold out for the rest of the month.
Visit Orlando says parks like Disney continue to operate on a reduced capacity and are maxing out ticket sales at those levels. They say it’s an encouraging sign, especially considering how low the tourist development tax dollars were for January in Orange County.
“That is the first month-over-month decline that we’ve had in TDT collections since we hit rock bottom in April,” said Orange County Comptroller Phil Diamond.
Visit Orlando is hopeful with more vaccine supply and Spring Break coming. Florida tourism is about to turn the corner.
Disney World continues to operate at 35% capacity with safety measures in place. According to the Walt Disney World reservation system online, reservations to visit the parks can be made through January 14, 2023, indicating the theme park company will still be using its reservation system at least until that date.
Starting October 1, Walt Disney World will throw “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” that will last 18 months.
