The tourism industry in Central Florida is looking like it will make a big comeback after Walt Disney World and Universal Studios hit capacity over Labor Day weekend, experts said.
“It is rebounding right now,” said Dr. Robertico Croes, associate dean for Research and Administration at the Rosen College of Hospitality Management with the Rosen College of Hospitality Management at the University of Central Florida. “It will come back very, very strong.”
Croes told Eyewitness News he did not expect such a crowd, but that it is welcomed.
“It is definitely a glimmer of hope,” Croes said.
Croes said if everything over the weekend went well and doesn’t result in a spike in COVID-19 cases, that park capacity could be increased by Thanksgiving.
