Orlando, Florida, is synonymous with diversity. Our area is probably best known as the home of Walt Disney World. 

Tens of millions of people visit our area to ride the rides and meet their favorite characters. Many of those people are from somewhere other than the United States. Per the Orlando Sentinel:

“International tourists make up a bigger piece of the pie at Disney World, where they typically comprise between 18 percent and 22 percent of total attendance.”

People from across the globe also move to the area to work at places like Disney World and Universal Studios. Thousands of people travel here for seasonal opportunities, only to fall in love with our diverse culture and build their lives here. 



For many families, this summer was a significant improvement over last year. While things have not completely returned to normal, many of the activities we enjoy the most returned. Our kids were able to participate in camps, sports clinics and spend time with their friends.

Time flies when you're having fun, so it probably feels like the break has flown by quickly.
