Visit Orlando will join key theme parks on a travel agent training tour of eight UK cities – including London for the first time.

The tourism board will be partnered by Walt Disney World Resort Florida; SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment; and Universal Orlando Resort (pictured) for the 2019 roadshows.

The evening events will offer food and drink, along with updates about Orlando’s theme parks, including new hotels, attractions and experiences.

There will be an expanded Visit Orlando Marketplace, providing an opportunity for travel agents to have one-on-one meetings with hotel and attraction partners.

Travel consultant Tracey Fordham from Not Just Travel said: “The representatives I met with at the 2018 Roadshow inspired me to learn more about Orlando and provided insider tips that I could pass along to my clients. I didn’t know until attending the roadshow how much Orlando truly has to offer.”

Agents will be entered for a chance to win a trip to Orlando for the 2019 Visit Orlando VIP Super Fam in September.

To qualify, agents must complete the Orlando Travel Academy before attending a roadshow.

The dates and locations of the roadshows are:

March 18: Glasgow
March 19: Middlesbrough
March 20: Leeds
March 21: Manchester
March 25: Birmingham
March 26: Bristol
March 27: Portsmouth
March 28: London
