It's considered "disrespectful" to a lot of NYers.

Both NY and Disney would be great places to visit. Alot of the people that visit Disney World ARE New Yorkers.

I'm confused where they said Disneyland would be #2 or was previously ahead of New York City??

New York is in the 40+ million visitors. Many other cities would fall before the top ranked Disney Park, which is the one in Florida with 17 million visitors.

I don't think Disney has ever been close to the #'s that visit New York, LA, Miami, Chicago, etc.



I have actually never wanted to go to Disney personally, I would choose NYC in a heartbeat.

I think the numbers were for the entire Orlando region. NYC has overtaken Orlando and Las Vegas in terms of overall visitor numbers, despite suffering a 3% decline in the number of visitors.

That seems to indicate that NYC simply fell less-steeply in terms of tourism, and hence, took the lead by default.

That's what Universal is for.

I'm the clear minority here, I'd rather take a trip to Orlando over a trip to Manhattan for many reasons, going to Orlando is a vacation, change in scenery (for the most part), Orlando is way more fun to me (I'm under 18), etc. I don't hate Manhattan but it's only 15 miles Northwest of me lol.

It also helps that both overall crime, Ii think, AND homicides are way down from years ago. But does most of America know this, or even believe it? Reputations, partly from anecdotes and reruns of crime dramas and movies may forever imbed NYC and crime.

Hope not.

They are talking the city as a whole, not just one attraction.

Orlando hasn't been below 40+ million visitors this decade and had about 44.49 last year.

As previously mentioned this drop probably has a lot to do with families getting hit a little harder in the economic downturn than singles or others without children.

I don't follow currency much but wasn't that only for about half the year?
I understand it would still help in having them travel but just curious.
