Each year over 50 million people flock to this part of the world to be thrilled and entertained by the rides, shows and attractions these theme parks are famous for. This is where it all began In 1965 Walt Disney announced plans to build Walt Disney World in Orlando, favoring it over Miami because the area is less affected by hurricanes. The completion of the resort came in 1971 and Orlando’s population and economic standing exploded. As a result, tourism in the area boomed and new theme parks began opening over the years. Orlando now has more theme parks and entertainment attractions than any other place in the world. And it isn’t just for kids. A lot of the rides are actually more suited for the “big kids”, adult thrill seekers in search of adrenalin pumping roller coasters. They really offer something for everyone no matter how old or young you are.
