Resorts in Florida, Transportation simulation methods
At this time there is an increasing emphasis in Florida on developing large, multipurpose complexes which include shopping, entertainment, and accommodations for tourists. In all cases a major design problem is people transportation. For best efficiency the primary mode of transportation, the car, must be exchanged for other people movers within the complex, which will afford more security, flexibility, and better movement of people to their ultimate destination. Economically speaking, this would not only conserve fuel, but would allow consolidation of automobile parking into a less desirable area and the grouping of facilities for more shopping and recreation convenience. An example could be typified by a large complex of scattered hotel/motels, which must handle people and their belongings efficiently. One such case is the hotel operations at Walt Disney World. This research used simulation to test the Guest Welcome Center concept. A computer simulation model of the proposed Guest Welcome Center was developed, and its performance analysed. The model performance defined staffing requirements and floor space requirements for guest waiting lines and luggage storage.
