Kissimmee can offer days packed full of every attraction under the sun — here you literally can't drive twenty feet without seeing something extraordinary up ahead! With plenty to keep you busy for several days, and attractions so close to one another, you can really cram a lot into just one afternoon, let alone one day. (Kissimmee is also neighbor to the Walt Disney World Resort, so that could also be your whole day sorted in an instant!)

Angela A's City Tips

  • Keep in mind that both the Greyhound bus and Amtrak train companies have stops in Kissimmee, so arriving by car is not essential.
  • Kissimmee is very easy to navigate by car. West U.S. Highway 192 is where the largest concentration of attractions is located.
  • Many hotels and ticket centers around Kissimmee sell attraction tickets, and ticket packages.
  • Thompson Aire
    Balloon Rides

    Angela A Says:

    Start the day by getting your bearings, and what better way than to see Kissimmee from the sky! Thompson Aire is the absolute best way to do this; it's a family-owned company, and they provide excellent service.

    If a balloon ride isn't on the agenda, then a good land-based breakfast option is Joanie's Diner (also a great Kissimmee lunch spot.) The setting is fun, and the pricing is affordable.

This village consists of authentic, historical structures that have been relocated from various places in Osceola County to form this enthralling attraction.

On the Sling Shot, expect to be seated and strapped into a circular structure, and then flung into the air and snatched back to earth — on repeat; while the Vomatron is like a gigantic propeller, with seats on each end, that spin very, very quickly. Do you dare?
