In 2010 Orlando achieved a new milestone reaching the record of 51.4-million visitors , making itself the first world destination to top 50 million. This week, Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs announced that Orlando Tourism has yet peaked to 55.1 million visitors in 2011.

 Orlando is the first destination in the country to welcome more than 55 million visitors and remains the most visited destination in the U.S. Disney is the most commonly used Keyword in Vacations Search in the United States. Orlando is located 54-miles from Cape Canaveral, Florida, where popular Port Canaveral is located, a popular hub for Cruise Lines. Orlando remains a popular pre and post stay destination for cruisers, especially with Disney Cruise Lines sailing from central Florida. In 2011, 1.5-million passengers embarked from Port Canaveral. On the other hand the Hard Hit housing Market in Orlando region seem to have been an inviting factor for Non US residents to buy properties thaere.
