From May 1-7, 2022, support tourism and Orlando’s economy during National Travel & Tourism Week (ICON Park® pictured).


There is no doubt that tourism is Orlando’s No. 1 industry, historically supporting over 40% of the workforce and providing $76 billion in annual economic impact. To keep those successes going, Visit Orlando is focusing on building a brighter tomorrow by celebrating the #FutureOfTravel during National Travel & Tourism Week (NTTW) from May 1-7, 2022 — and you are invited to join the fun.

Why support NTTW? Consider these facts:

  • Living in a top tourism destination gives you the ability to enjoy wondrous resorts, theme parks, dining and entertainment in your own backyard.
  • Tourism provides jobs for all ages and stages of life.
  • Visitors account for over 50% of Orange County’s sales tax revenue, money that supports local schools, infrastructure and public safety.
  • Hotel taxes paid by visitors help fund venues like Camping World Stadium, Amway Center and Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, helping us bring world-class events to Orlando.

During NTTW, we’ll leverage social media to spotlight tourism’s positive impact and smiling faces, and we’re asking for your help. Because whether you’re an industry worker who makes us shine, or a local who supports our attractions, restaurants, resorts and other businesses, we couldn’t do it without you.

See how you can help make NTTW 2022 succeed — not just for the industry it represents, but also cities like ours that it benefits — and treat yourself to a good time while you’re at it. Also, keep an ear out for our local radio promotion with your chance to win a Visit Orlando Swag Bag of Fun as our thank-you for everything you do for Orlando!

Please note: Depending on the timing of your visit, some experiences may be temporarily modified. Learn more about healthy travel in Orlando, and check with your favorite businesses for their current status.

One of the best, easiest and fun ways to back National Travel & Tourism Week is to support local businesses … and we’re not just talking about our world-famous theme parks and attractions. Part of Visit Orlando’s mission is to let the world know about all of our amazing experiences:

Visiting any Orlando business during NTTW 2022 — including staycations at our over-the-top hotels, resorts and other places to stay — will boost our local economy. But that’s not all: You can save on things to do with special offers from our partners, including exclusive savings for Florida residents, as well as theme park and attraction tickets from Visit Orlando powered by BestofOrlando.com. The more you save, the more you help your hometown during National Travel & Tourism Week.

Visit Orlando isn’t just asking you to support local businesses during NTTW 2022. We’re also asking you to spread the word about how incredible it is to visit Orlando — and that getting here is easy. For example:

You and your out-of-town family and friends can find more useful info, plus the latest news and special offers, on VisitOrlando.com, or by visiting us on Facebook (including the Plan Your Orlando Vacation Facebook Group moderated by Visit Orlando), Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube. You can also have updates delivered straight to your inbox.

When you consider the destination’s ease of access by air and ground, it could be said that all roads lead to Orlando — and we can’t wait to see them being used by eager travelers who are ready to immerse themselves in the sort of wonder that you can only find here. Help us make that goal a reality while supporting the local economy during National Travel & Tourism Week 2022.
