In Kissimmee, visitors can catch a glimpse of Florida as it was during the past two centuries.  The rail station is a “newcomer”, by those standards.  It still has the look and feel of a depot of the 1920s.  It is well served daily by Amtrak, and is a popular and convenient choice as a point of arrival and departure to the Disney area. 

 

Landscaping and renovations preserve the historic downtown district of this small Florida town.  Old Town, just east of I-4 on US 192, features 75 specialty shops as well as restaurants and amusement rides in a turn of the 20th century setting.  Hundreds of classic cars cruise the Old Town streets every Friday and Saturday night.

 

Kissimmee hosts the Houston Astros every March for spring training in the Osceola County Stadium and Sports Complex.  The arena in Osceola Heritage Park is the site of the Silver Spurs Rodeo and other sporting events. 

 

Welcome to the most magical place on Earth.  When Walt Disney was asked, “when will it be finished”, he replied, “as long as there is imagination ….never”.  This true visionary who embraced the childlike qualities in all of us, transformed this once cattle and citrus community into the most visited site on the planet.  Best of all, Kissimmee enjoys year round mild weather. 

 

What most visitors planning a Florida vacation think of as Orlando actually includes Kissimmee and Lake Buena Vista as well. If you are one of the lucky millions of people who will visit this fabulous “world”, get ready to have the ride of your life.  It has been said that if you were to visit every attraction in the area, by the time you finished, a new one will have been built.

 

Visitors from around the world flock to this destination to experience the magic that is not only Disney in the form of Animal Kingdom, Epcot, MGM Studios, and the park that started it all–the Magic Kingdom, but Universal Studios and SeaWorld, just to name a few.  Of course, Downtown Disney, a host of water parks, and Pleasure Island, golf courses, a racetrack and restaurants are all included.

 

There is no shortage of things to do in and around Kissimmee. While the Disney World Resort is a must see, Sea World, Wet ‘n Wild, and Universal are within an easy drive.  There are also a host of other attractions, fine food, museums, theatre, and virtually anything you can imagine within a 30 minute drive. 

 

Dinner theaters provide a unique form of entertainment. There are a variety of venues including a Pirate adventure, Medieval Times, Arabian Nights, (complete with Lipizzaner horses), a Dixie Stampede, and even a Sleuths’ Mystery.  What a great way to relax and unwind after an invigorating day at the parks.

 

 

At every Disney attraction, there is an opportunity to see the world through a child’s eyes. That look of amazement each and every time a Disney character makes an appearance or a child takes that exciting ride for their first time, is an experience to remember and to cherish.  The wonders of Orlando, Lake Buena Vista, and Kissimmee are magical, and in these enchanting places, everyone gets to be young and carefree.
