DDW Pic 510. Brazilian Tour Groups
Brazilian Tour Groups
During certain times of the year, there is a phenomenon that occurs at Walt Disney World. I'm talking about the large number of Brazilian tour groups who can be seen enjoying the parks. They are usually in groups of 50 or more, and each group tends to wear the same colored shirts. I have been told that due to their excellent economy, there is a very favorable exchange rate for Brazilians visiting the United States. These high school and college age kids spend time at the outlets around Central Florida and purchase items for nearly half what they would cost in Brazil. Of course while they are in Florida, they also enjoy the theme parks. Walt Disney World attracts guests from all over the globe, but there is no question that a majority of the international tour groups come from Brazil. I snapped this picture of one such group posing in front of Cinderella Castle on Saturday.
