Influencer marketing is huge right now, especially in the travel industry. No matter if you are a huge influencer or a micro-influencer, your platform can be extremely valuable to companies. I do quite a bit of local Florida travel, and have had the pleasure of working with some really amazing brands and places. One of the questions I get often is ” What are the influencer friendly Central Florida companies?”. Today, I want to share with you my list of amazing Central Florida companies who love working with bloggers and influencers!
Pitching Travel Brands
First and foremost, before we get into the list of influencer friendly Central Florida companies… We need to talk about pitching!

If you feel like you need some help with your pitch, I have put together an in dept post on pitching complete with all of my proven tips and a video to help you out as much as possible! So hop on over, take a look and then we can start digging into all of the companies here in sunny Florida that love working with bloggers.
Florida Theme Parks That Work With Bloggers
Florida is known for its plethora of theme parks! One thing that is lesser known though is how blogger friendly many of these theme parks are! Many of them offer courtesy tickets to bloggers and social media influencers.
Walt Disney World
A personal favorite of mine, Walt Disney World loves working with bloggers and social media influencers. I have been blessed to attend numerous Disney Media Events, and it all started by sending one little pitch email to their PR representative. Disney typically will give bloggers two one-day park hoppers on request. You can see their entire public ticket policy and find the email contact here.
Legoland is another theme park in Central Florida that is very influencer friendly. They offer a complimentary ticket policy similar to that of Walt Disney World.. They also sometimes offer discounts at their Legoland hotels for bloggers as well. Legoland is a fun place to visit, especially for the younger kids and their media policy is very generous. You can see their requirements and contact info right here.
Roller coaster junkie? Busch Gardens in Tampa offers courtesy tickets to bloggers as well! They will allow two one day passes per calendar year for bloggers, influencers, and members of the media. Find all of their contact information here.
It should be no surprise that SeaWorld Orlando also offers complimentary media tickets. They are owned by the came umbrella company as Busch Gardens, so they have a very similar policy. You can see their policy and contact here.
Another park owned by the same company as SeaWorld, Discovery Cove is a really fun place to visit as a blogger! Swim with the dolphins and get some really fun footage, while enjoying complimentary media passes for the day. You can check them out and get their media policy here.
Another one of Florida’s wonderful theme parks, Universal offers a bloggers program as well. You can experience this park as a member of the media by checking out their policy and contact information here.
Florida Destinations that Work With Bloggers
Outside of the parks, there are many other influencer friendly Central Florida companies to enjoy.
The Crayola Experience
Nestled in the Mall at Millenia, the Crayola Experience is a fun way for little ones to spend a day! You can create, eat, learn and even make your own custom crayon color! Find their contact info for members of the media here.
If you want a fun dining experience, then Medieval Times is the perfect option for you! This dinner and a show style experience loves working with bloggers and has a generous media policy which you can find here.
Almost as famous as the Florida theme parks may be the Florida gators. If you want to get some up close and personal experience with Florida’s most renowned beasts, then Gatorland is such a fun place to visit! You can find their media policy and contact here.
Hotels that Work With Bloggers
With all of the excitement of a Florida vacation, you will still need a place to stay! There are a few hotels that work with members of the media by offering discounts and specials to bloggers and social media influencers on assignment.
I absolutely love the Wyndham in I-drive, and they love working with bloggers! They have hotels all around the state, and you can contact their media person here to start planning your vacation and media trip.
The IHG Group of Hotels
Another option when looking for PR discounts on hotel stays is to contact the IGH group of hotels. This group includes names such as the whole host of Holiday Inn properties. You can contact their media representative here.
So there you have it! While this is by no means a full list of influencer friendly Central Florida companies, it is a really great place to start! So if you are a blogger planning a trip to Florida, check out some of theses places! Just remember, even if someone tells you no… don’t get discouraged!
