The wonderful world of Walt Disney has an undeniable WOW factor that draws in millions of visitors from around the globe. Year in year out the appeal never seems to wane and frankly, it's hardly any wonder when you consider the sheer scale of it.

With today's average number of annual visitors already hovering around the 16m mark, just how will DisneyWorld Florida attract more tourists and sell more Walt Disney World tickets than ever before? In a nutshell, they're going to do it in style! 2013 promises to be a great year for Disney devotees.

Little over a year ago, Disney World Florida even gave President Obama a warm welcome as he addressed an array of tourism experts. Highlighting the significant impact that prolific parks such as Disney World have on more political sectors such as employment or the US economy, he said:
" I directed my administration to send me a new national tourism strategy focused on creating jobs, and some of America's most successful business leaders; some who are here today, have signed up to help. We're going to see how we can make it easier for foreign tourists to find basic information about visiting America and we're going to see how we can attract more tourists to our national parks. We want people visiting not just Epcot Centre, but the Everglades too. The more folks who visit America, the more Americans we get back to work. It's that simple."
