Visit Orlando just announced a new all-time record for Orlando, the biggest tourist destination. In 2015, 66.1 million people visited Orlando, growing 5.5 percent from 2014 and solidifying Orlando’s position as the most visited destination in the nation. Visitation to Orlando more than doubled over the past 20 years, growing from 32.4 million in 1995.

The rapid growth over the past two decades is a result of having a tourism and vacation community that is focused on growth and investment. With a superb convention center and culture of hospitality, world-class theme parks, family-friendly entertainment and luxury dining and lodging amenities, it’s no surprise that Central Florida remains the top destination for business.

Osceola County Rezoning

slide1

 

Osceola County hopes enlarging its tourism district will fix the area’s many tourists problems.

The County has struggled to fill the countless empty buildings currently in their tourist district, however county leaders are moving forward on a plan to rezone 3,396 acres of land from a general Mixed Use zoning to a Tourist Commercial zoning, which means good things are to come for Reunion.

The current property to be rezoned is bordered by Polk County on two sides and with various uses along the edges, including a rural enclave and a conservation area. The new zoning would allow for tourist-related housing (timeshares) to have up to 40 units per acre while traditional hotels could have up to 60 units per acre. That is rather small for most hotels, which usually average between 170 and 200 rooms on plots of 2 to 3 acres.

It’s worth noting that the property is near the Reunion Resort. That 2,226-acre resort complex features over 1,500 hotel rooms and over 6,000 housing units with the vast majority being used as vacation rentals. Despite the sprawl-like features of the Reunion Resort, with its numerous golf courses, twisting streets and cul-de-sacs, Osceola County seems to think that this type of development will help enhance the county.

It also includes numerous landowners, so a large scale Reunion-style project is unlikely. The county seems to believe a disjointed road network with at least 5 housing units per acre and various developments all in a single area with no major density is how to fix sprawl.

Of course, they also think that wider sidewalks, outdoor dining and more palm trees is what’s needed to bring back the tourist who now all seem to be staying up I-4 at Universal and on I-Drive.

The Osceola County Development Review Committee will review the zoning change proposal Feb. 17 with the County Commissioners scheduled to review the zoning changes Mar. 21. Maybe the state agencies will recommend some fracking on the land to help make it even more desirable.

Disney World on a Budget

IMG_0770

As snow birds flock to Central Florida, the no. 1 tourist destination for the warmer weather, Disneyworld also prepares for its upcoming tourists.  Here are a few tips and tricks for staying on a Disney budget.

Here are some different packages to consider when traveling to Disneyworld!

Disney Value Seasons

You and your family can head to Walt Disney World during the off-season when lines are shorter, the weather is more comfortable and the prices are lower. The rates are usually lower from January to February; for a few weeks in April and May; mid-August through September; and between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Magic Your Way

Sign up on the Disney World website to receive announcements of special offers. Magic Your Way is a new program that offers visitors options a la carte. You can choose to add what you wish instead of buying a package that might include elements that you don’t really want.

Rider Swap Tickets

These tickets allow parents to take turns accompanying older children on the rides without having to wait in line again. Systems in place at Disney World like the Rider Swap program provide ways to get more entertainment in less time, which equals more bang for your buck!

Extra Magic Hours

Another great way to maximize your family time at Disney World is to beat the crowds by arriving early (or staying late). Guests of Disney resorts can enjoy extended Magic Hours at the Magic Kingdom, offered both before the park opens to the general public and after it closes.

Park-Hopper Tickets

For an additional charge per ticket, Park-Hopper tickets allows you to visit multiple parks in the same day. The charge is only applied once and the more days you stay, the less it costs per day.

Free Transportation

A system of monorails, buses and even boats can take you from park to park at Disney World.

Fast Pass

Don’t feel like waiting in lines? Put your park ticket in the designated Fast Pass machine, and out comes a Fast Pass ticket that tells you to come back at a specific time (for example, 2:30-3:30). The ticket acts as a placeholder, which is great for families who don’t want to spend hours waiting in line at a popular attraction. However, you can only get 1 Fast Pass ticket every 2 hours and popular rides can run out of Fast Passes, so try to get one early.

Disney Dining Plan

Families can take advantage of some of the counter-service buffets that are generally all-you-can-eat. If you’re really into food and you’re a big eater, then definitely go with the Disney Dining Plan. A family of four can save up to 30 percent on this plan.

Photo Pass

A service is more of a memory saver than a money saver. This is a great feature for families that don’t have a free hand to take pictures. Ask any Disney photographer for the pass and carry it with you throughout the day. When you’re ready to leave the park, you can get your pictures printed out, or select the ones you want online and have them sent to you.

Florida Homes Sales on a Rise

uQTUGTNLt7aOYqdEnISRUhFLqOKFkG47QAzDyi097AM

As 2015 is coming to an end, the Florida real estate market has outperformed the nation as a whole. However, the Florida market rise has eased off a bit – catching its breath after a very hectic late summer and early fall. As 2016 is approaching quickly, the real estate market of home sales should increase by 8-10 percent over the 2015 numbers and home prices should rise by about 5 percent. This increase could be because of the backdrop of an expanding state economy with growing employment.

However, a few conditions could impact the 2016’s outlook.

  • shortage of workforce housing
  • creating housing options for the workers

The biggest potential snag to this forecast at the state level is the growing shortage of workforce housing in the more populated areas. Florida is attracting jobs, and with that said, there needs to be better housing options for the workers who are from out of state.

National issues could also influence Florida real estate sales in 2016. Rising interest rates may cause a dent in the market, but it will not have a significant effect. International issues could also have an impact since the Sunshine State real estate market relies on foreign buyers.

Looking a bit farther afield, weak economic growth in other countries will dampen international demand for Florida real estate – but foreign buyers will remain a noticeable presence in the market.

With the rise in home sales this coming year, where should you buy? Well,  Reunion Resort is the number one destination to buy the perfect vacation home, between the breathtaking views, the fabulous amenities, and the multiple opportunities to have fun with your family. Reunion is one of the most luxurious resorts in the area, and with its location being just 6 miles from Disney, you can enjoy all the fun of the theme parks and return back to enjoy time in one of the resorts 8 pools, and 3 golf courses.

Why Orlando is the No. 1 Family Vacation Destination

4qmOmAySBmzHfdAGeUvCmcrcm7CJoMo005a38lg9nYcAs Orlando is the home to Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld it is easy to see why it’s a top travel destination. According to Travel + Leisure Magazine, the City Beautiful is the top U.S. travel destination for family vacations. In 2014 “”America’s Favorite Cities” surveyed and tallied more than 50,000 votes, ranking 38 U.S. cities in dozens of categories, from culture to quality of life. Orlando was No. 1 on the list once, as the top city for a family vacation.

Just in Orlando the statistic of travelers for 2014 was 63 million, according to Visit Orlando. Compared to the 97 million for the entire State. It is the fourth year in a row that the state has had a record number of tourists come to the state. Most of the visitors were from the United States, but millions also came from overseas and from Canada Florida’s natural beauty, pristine beaches and exciting attractions continue to bring countless visitors to our state and provide valuable jobs for our families. State officials told a legislative committee last year that Florida is growing at the expense of our competition as Americans are shifting away from visiting other places to come to Florida.

When thinking of traveling to Orlando for a family vacation Reunion Resort ranked No. 1. as the luxurious vacation destination. Set 11 miles from Walt Disney World Resort, this upmarket golf resort with villas is also 16 miles from SeaWorld Orlando and 19 miles from Universal Orlando Resort. The stylish, 1- to 3-bedroom villas feature free Wi-Fi and balconies/patios, as well as flat-screen TVs, separate living areas and full kitchens. Vacation homes for up to 14 people are also available. Amenities include 6 restaurants/bars, 3 pro-designed golf courses, 6 tennis courts and 10 pools, plus a water park. There’s also a spa, a fitness center and a kid’s club, along with meeting space and complimentary parking.
