Many Reasons to Be Thankful

Close to 50 million Americans are expected to take to the roads next week, making it the busiest Thanksgiving for travel since 2007, according to AAA. Thankfully, many of these travelers are expected to arrive here, in Orlando. Our destination is continually ranked among the top places to spend the Thanksgiving holiday as recently noted by AAA and Reservations.com.

Traditionally a busy weekend for travel, Thanksgiving occupancy is already pacing ahead of 2015 and advance bookings are up nearly 4 percent over the same period last year. While AAA attributes the bump to lower gas prices and anticipates nearly 89 percent of these travelers will arrive by car, air travel is also expected to be on the rise this season.

Thanksgiving weekend kicks off the beginning of a holiday season full of events and specially-themed venues. There will be winter celebrations at the parks and plenty of good cheer throughout our many resorts and attractions as well as a host of exciting ways for our guests to ring in the New Year.

Travelers to the area will also be rewarded with a variety of Black Friday deals that include hotel savings and added amenities, restaurant offers and discount tickets to area attractions.

The strong Thanksgiving weekend predictors, coupled with all that Orlando has planned for the holiday season, gives us every reason to believe the fourth quarter will usher our destination into a prosperous new year.
