Here's Buddy Dyer recording his welcome message for the new airport People Movers

Posted By on Wed, Feb 15, 2017 at 11:03 AM

If you've ever flown out of gates 1-59 at Orlando International Airport, then you've ridden on an Automated People Mover, which means you've definitely heard Mayor Buddy Dyer's voice talk about how great Orlando is.

It's a wonderful message. While grasping your carry-on and breathing into some guy's hair that's only 3 inches from your face, it's a nice reprieve to hear Dyer discuss the importance of looking past our "world-class theme parks."

Anyway, because we love Dyer's welcome message so much, he let us in on the magic behind the curtain by posting a video of his process, posting the video above to Twitter last Monday.

Now you have something to think about every single time you're crammed into the APM with hundreds of antsy kids going to Disney.
