LORELAI: Florida? I thought he was in the area.
LUKE: No no, he spent most of his life here but retired to Orlando, so I gotta ship the body back here.
Orlando is the seat of Orange County in Central Florida, a city founded in 1838, and with a population of more than 300 000, making it the 67th largest city in the US (the entire metropolitan area is more than 2.5 million).
Orlando is nicknamed “the City Beautiful”, and is heavily visited due to the Walt Disney World Resort, and the Universal Orlando Resort, as well as being extremely popular for conventions. It is a common place to choose for retirement, like Louie did.
Orlando is about 1200 miles from Hartford, and can be more than four hours by air, if that’s how Luke is having him shipped. By road, it’s about 18 hours.
