[QUOTE=bethishooked;1121945]We just got back last night, only saw one tour group the entire stay, but we definitely were discussing either Disney was giving away some awesome deals elsewhere, or the value of the dollar is strong for other countries. I was guessing 80% foreign and 20% English speakers. Once again, very pleasant trip (with the exception of those Moms SCREAMING at their toddlers, or putting a 15 month old in a hot tub!..but that can be another thread of “What is wrong with you!?!”)[/QUOTE]
I work in a museum in Boston and since springtime of this year we have marked a GIANT uptick in international visitors. Spring and fall are usually our busiest times for international visitors, I would estimate in the past that the split is usually 40% international, 60% domestic for those seasons. Traditionally, summer is an 80% domestic, 20% international split. This year? Since about April I would say the split averages out to 60% international, 40% domestic. Some weeks this summer we felt like we ONLY had international visitors. It has been an interesting year for tourism in Boston for sure. I am guessing that is the case across the country and in WDW.
