Holiday tourists overwhelm top Florida theme parks

• The RawStory.com
 Free-spending US tourists shrugged off economic worries to overwhelm Disney World and other top Florida theme parks this week, forcing them to temporarily shut the gates, local officials said Thursday.

Some visitors to Legoland, the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and three Disney destinations found parking lots and entryways shut for short periods Wednesday and Thursday as the Orlando area enjoys record numbers of tourists for the Christmas-New Year holiday.

“We are having yet again another very busy day,” Legoland spokeswoman Jackie Wallace said as she explained why the park had to limit entrances for the second day running.

Three of Disney’s four Orlando parks, the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, all had to freeze entry for around 90 minutes on Wednesday to “ensure guests had a memorable experience,” according to a Disney official.
