As some posts argue about the euro/dollar, I can say you that, as a French citizen, when I came to Orlando in December 2006 it is true that I was very happy to buy "cheap" dollars with my euros (and one year ago, the euro was not as strong as it is now).
10 days with my wife and two children, a vacation homes for 7 (my wife's brother and parents were with us), transatlantic flights (on BA) and park entrances: all this was cheaper than a 10 days holiday in a ski resort in France!
So yes, the "low" dollar can be a strong incentive. However, even if the dollar would have been equal to an euro, this would have been a good bargain (holidays can be very expensive in Europe). For air travel, we bought non-refundable tickets: they are almsot half the price. I guess a lot of people are doing the same.
