In April of 1971 Florida created Town of Poinciana by providing legal rights to a private developer. In October of that year the Walt Disney Company opened Walt Disney World in Orlando which was the beginning of economic growth in the Orlando Area that has led our region to become the number 1 hospitality industry based economy in the world. Poinciana and these two events are inseparable.
Poinciana developed as a 'bedroom' community to serve the business needs of the Orlando economic boom. Transportation is the lifeblood for the future of Poinciana.
