Well then you would hear ESPN along with other NAtional Media sources identify orlando as "The House Of Mickey Mouse" or "Mickey Mouse House" as well As I used to work at the theme parks. I have heard tourist on several occasions say something of the sort.

The City of Cars name I heard it long ago. Then I finally seen it on the front of some cars. I don't necessarily think the volume of cars, but car dealerships.
