The agency plans to keep pushing forward, encouraging vacationers to take a good look at the region.
Meanwhile, international travel remains on hold.


“It’s going to be just a little bit longer road because there are so many obstacles, and obviously from the guidance make sure when its right to open border safely and welcome the world back to Orlando,” said Matej.


Matej said it could not be until the end of 2023 that international travel rebounds.
