Essential information for Kissimmee
Imagine a place where the sun shines for 232 days of the year, you’re just a few miles from the world’s greatest theme parks, and you can come face-to-face with some of the most spectacular natural beauty in North America by just stepping outside your hotel. Welcome to Kissimmee, (pronounced ‘ki-simi’) where you can bump into Mickey Mouse around the corner, or hop on an airboat to buzz around Shingle Creek Regional Park and say hi to the ‘gators’. It’s a great mix of charming ‘Mom and Pop’ America, quality entertainment, and raw nature at her very best. You’ll also get that typically warm Floridan welcome everywhere you go, and giant breakfasts that’ll make your eyes pop!
Sure, a lot of people book Kissimmee holidays as a great base for ‘doing the theme parks’, but there’s so much more to this part of Florida than just the Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot. You’ve got retro-style shopping, 1950s American Diners, hiking trails, traditional fairgrounds, and wonderfully-named beauty spots like Boggy Creek (which is so much better than it sounds — trust us). Whether you’re looking for an all-inclusive Florida holiday, a chance to experience the ‘real’ America, or are taking the kids to Walt Disney World Resort for that once-in-a-lifetime experience, Kissimmee is definitely right at the top of our Florida favourites list.
They’re very good at hospitality in the USA. Very good. You’re made to feel welcome from the moment you step through the door, and nothing is too much trouble. Got a fussy eater in your rabble? Don’t worry, they’ll take care of it. Need some extra pampering to really get into the swing of things? Kissimmee hotels make sure you’re looked after with spa treatments and every type of therapy you can imagine.
Better yet, why not bundle everything up into package and have more time to focus on enjoying yourself? Our package holidays to Kissimmee include your flights, transfers and accommodation. You can also upgrade with free transport to Walt Disney World Resort and the region’s other theme parks, pack in some full or half-board deals meaning so meals are taken care of, and you can even pay your resort fees up front. That way you know exactly how much spending money you’ve got to splash out on a few treats for the family (you simply cannot go to Walt Disney World and NOT buy a pair of Mickey Mouse ears for the kids). Here’s a few of our favourite spots and packages to try:
Kissimmee is full of resorts that pack everything you need into one neat bundle, so you can concentrate on having a great time.

Not only that, but they’re a great choice for any golfers looking to enjoy a few rounds under the Florida sun. Here’s a few of our favourites (all of which are close to those all-important theme parks, too):
Holidays to Kissimmee are great at any time of the year — just make sure you pack plenty of Factor 30. The region is classified as ‘sub tropical’ which basically translates into hot and sunny.
You’re in the USA, which means big, big portions! A pile of breakfast pancakes or waffles should get you started, washed down by plenty of coffee (refills are usually free). Then it’s those kids’ favourites, burgers and pizza for lunch, while grown-ups can go for something spicy such as Tacos. Finish the day off with steaks the size of your own head, or some delicious Italian dining. Here’s a few top spots to try:
