Boom weekend for Orlando

Orlando is having boom week and also weekend. The football game between Notre Dame and Florida state was a sellout with over to 68,000 people in attendance. The Magic basketball game also added 20,000 people in the downtown area on Thursday. You can imagine the nightmare trying to find a parking spot.

It was reported on the local news that the hotel where 95% full with all these people in town for the bowl game along with your regular tourist season. Universal Studios and Disney World temporarily close their gates for a short period as the parks were overcrowded it was reported there were three hour waits to get on some rides.

This coming weekend the scene will be repeated as the Capital One Bowl will be in town and is completely sold out another boom for the downtown area which surely could use it. So if you are planning to be out and about this weekend and next be sure to plan your trips around town as in some areas there will be a lot of traffic.

It may be an inconvenience for some people with all the football fans and tourist flooding into Orlando but I'm sure it is a welcome sight for all the businesspeople and the economy this season. Most of the fans here for the games spend at least between two and $3000 on hotel rooms flights and restaurants this will be a boost for our local economy. It is estimated that the local economy will benefit by the tune of $80 million on the events so I say congratulations to Orlando and a happy new year to all.
