Travel to Orlando easier with new Visa rules

This is something the folks at Walt Disney Parks & Resorts have been working for for a long time

Under the new law, more countries could qualify to send tourists to the United States without visas for up to 90 days. Only 27 nations can do that now, but tourism officials hope others will be added if required security improvements are made.

"The easier we make it to travel to Orlando, the better," said Danielle Courtenay, who does global publicity for the Orlando/Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau. The group has targeted Brazil and Argentina as two countries where it wants to expand tourism.

The bureau recently released figures that about 300,000 South Americans came to Orlando annually from 2003 to 2005. Western Europe, whose travelers often don’t need visas, sent about 1.4 million visitors to Orlando in 2006.

So look for a lot more Brazilian tour groups at all the Orlando theme parks. (Read)
