#LoveOrlando

 #LoveOrlando

The outpouring of support our city has received these past few weeks has been extraordinary. Iconic monuments were illuminated in solidarity, celebrities shared heart-warming dedications, and you shared your love for us - both as a community and a vacation destination -- through personal videos, photos, music, tweets and posts and more.

On behalf of our destination, we are deeply touched that you understand who we are, and what we represent. For more than 40 years, we have been a place that unifies generations of families, couples and friends. We are a city that welcomes everyone with an open heart.

Like you, we love Orlando, too. To embrace the world's support for our destination, we have been inspired to adopt the hashtag #LoveOrlando to aggregate these beautiful thoughts and creative content on social media. And we welcome you to use #LoveOrlando for your own favorite memories!

Thank you for the love.

 



Orlando Gets in the Game

 Orlando Gets in the Game

The NFL confirmed on Tuesday that beginning early next year Orlando will enter into a three-year relationship to host the league's Pro Bowl Week. Starting in 2017, the destination will welcome the NFL's brightest stars in a week-long series of festivities that will culminate with the Pro Bowl Game to be played at our own Camping World Stadium. Some of the events we can look forward to at Pro Bowl Week include the AFC and NFC practices, the USA Football National Conference, The Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award and a host of exciting activities which will include a 5K and a parade of Pro Bowl players in the Magic Kingdom.

This historic event is possible thanks to a collaborative effort on the part of several members of our tourism industry, our elected officials and quarterbacked by Florida Citrus Sports. Together, we are prepared to greet the thousands of visitors to Orlando, bringing with them millions of dollars in economic impact and exposure for our destination. In addition to the fans and players which will come for Pro Bowl Week, the NFL will also celebrate Play Football Month in Orlando as well. And we're excited that on August 25th the NFL will host week three of the preseason at Camping World Stadium when the Miami Dolphins take on the Atlanta Falcons - giving football enthusiasts a sneak peek at what to expect in the upcoming years here in Orlando.

The Pro Bowl announcement, made at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, highlights the league's new youth-focused agenda which teams perfectly with Orlando's appeal. In a recent conversation with the league, they expressed a desire to connect the NFL brand with youth and families - and there is no better backdrop to achieve that than right here in Orlando.
