Orlando Sentinel - - FRONT PAGE -

Nearly 50 years since the open­ing of Walt Dis­ney World, Or­lando is the most vis­ited city in the U.S. with mil­lions of tourists flock­ing here ev­ery year. But when the gates close at Dis­ney, Univer­sal and SeaWorld, the area’s cru­cial tourism work­ers re­turn to the real­ity of their lives.
