New Yorkers getting a slice of Orlando

With the temperatures reaching below 20 degrees in New York today, local promoters are planning to build a mini Orlando in the big city's Times Square. Toys R Us is the largest publicity move by the Orlando/Orange County Convention and visitors Bureau. In addition to satellite version of some of Orlando's tourist attractions, the cabana also will go ahead with a crowd of local officials ready to talk up cold New Yorkers on how to use the words February and 70 degrees in same sentence. Orlando's presence in times Square will be felt for at least a full 14 hours.
