Orlando, Fla., home to Disney World and other tourist playlands, probably won't fully recover from the combination of economic recession and Sept.11 until well into next year, said researchers with the Orlando-Orange County Convention and Visitors Center.
By recovery, the researchers mean a return to the 43.2 million visitors who had a $20.9-billion economic impact in Orlando in 2000.
Barring unforeseen setbacks, visitation is expected to resume growth in the second half of this year.
