Florida Vacation

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Kissimmee Tourism. All opinions are 100% mine.

I think it’s time to start planning our first Florida vacation as a family. I want to take Lucy to Disney World, and I think next year she will probably be at a pretty good age to hit up “The Happiest Place on Earth”. I haven’t been to Disney World since I was very young (so young, in fact, that I hardly remember the trip), so I can’t wait to go back myself.

However, I can pretty much assure you that we will NOT be going next summer. Summer is hot enough here in Georgia. I can’t imagine how bad the heat is in Florida. I’m thinking more of an early fall trip, sometime before baseball season ends so we can hit up the Tampa Bay Rays stadium, which isn’t too bad of a drive from Orlando.

What do I want to do on our vacation? Well, obviously, we’ll be hitting up Disney World and its related theme parks for the munchkin and, as I mentioned, also make it to a baseball game so we can mark one more stadium off our list.

Although there are plenty of hotels near Disney World, I’d like to stay nearby in Kissimmee. There are plenty of things to do there besides Disney World, such as Gatorland, the alligator capitol of the world, as well as dinner shows, miniature golf and hot air balloon rides. This definitely would have to be a repeat trip because I know Lucy will enjoy it more and more as she gets older.

Have any of you ever been to the Kissimmee/Orlando area? Besides Disney World, what were your favorite things to do?

    We went to visit my sister in early May this year & it was the absolutely perfect time to go there. In the fall you have a pretty good risk of hurricanes. My sister lives about an hour or so from Orlando on the ocean. I loved it there!
