Walt Disney World and its related businesses in Florida generate an estimated $18.2 billion a year in economic activity and more than 1 out of every 50 jobs in the state, according to an impact study paid for by the giant resort and released Wednesday morning.

Wonder what they are about to ask for from Tallahassee.

A counter study by me says kpjb should get a high speed rail.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

If kpjb could support a high speed rail, he'd already have one.

Its already proven that kpjb's corridor is the most trafficked, therefore, hence, ergo, he should get it.

ummm....huh?

The motivation for this study is probably a bigger part of their lobbying efforts to get whatever it is that's important to them. I'm not even a little surprised that they'd put something like this out there.

As long as there is no hanging chads......


what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

It IS a small world after all, and we are responsible for 2.5 percent of it.

WDW is certainly the economic engine of Orlando... not sure about the whole state though.

So Disney jobs represent 1 and 50 jobs while retirement homes and golf courses make up the other 49 out of the remaining 50 jobs.

What are you basing that on? The aerospace industry is kind of big down here. There are also beaches and non-Disney cruises and other assorted tourism.
