Vacation Homes Collection
First things first, you need to check into your accommodations. Aesky and her family stayed with the Vacation Homes Collection. They have a fantastic assortment of homes to choose from — ranging from condos and villas to spacious mansions that’ll have you feeling like a celebrity! The Bonnaire family loved their home that came complete with a private pool where they could splish, splash, and have a blast.
Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament
Once you’ve gotten comfortable in your vacation home away from home, it’s time for a bite to eat and some entertainment at Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament. Here, you’ll travel back in time to the 11th century to watch six courageous knights battle in a tournament for the ages. There’s jousting, there’s sword fighting, and — best of all — there’s a four-course feast. An evening here is sure to result in the (medieval) time of your life!
Day two is all about family. There’s plenty for the kids and a little something for parents as well. After all, it’s your vacation too!
Fun Spot America-Kissimmee
If you’re looking for a good time, you’ve certainly come to the right spot — it even says so right there in the name! Fun Spot America-Kissimmee is the place to start your day. There are over 20 rides here, from the kid-friendly Frog Hopper to the world’s tallest SkyCoaster (if you’re looking for a real thrill). Plus, with arcade and carnival games aplenty, there are activities to keep everybody occupied for hours.
After a wonderful morning, it’s time to enjoy a little well-deserved retail therapy at Disney Springs. And with over 100 stores, pop-ups, and pavilions, you’re sure to find the perfect souvenir to take home with you — or maybe just something nice for the little ones! But Disney Springs is more than just shops. There are also over 60 dining options and nearly two-dozen attractions, shows, and events. And speaking of attractions...
Splitsville Luxury Lanes
There’s excitement to spare at Splitsville Luxury Lanes. The Bonnaires had a terrific time dining and bowling during their visit here. That’s right, dining and bowling! Splitsville’s restaurant offers delicious delights that are sure to strike your fancy — from burgers to rice bowls, sushi to gourmet pizza. Plus, with live music, flat-screen TVs, and a lively atmosphere that harkens back to the “Golden Age of Bowling”, the entire family will love rolling in here all night long.
Today is all about exploring. You’ll make your way through the beauty of Central Florida’s wild side, learn what it’s like to fly high in the skies, and try dozens of exciting new games!
Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures
Day three starts with a thrilling airboat ride across the Headwaters of the Everglades at Boggy Creek Airboat Adventures. You’ll learn all kinds of fascinating facts about the wildlife that call Florida home — and even have a chance to see a few of them up close. What better way to start the day than by getting face to face with an alligator?!
From the swamps to the skies, the next stop on the Bonnaire family’s adventure brought them to Stallion 51. Located at Kissimmee Gateway Airport, Stallion 51 is an aviation lover’s dream. Here, you can take flight in the legendary P-51 Mustang and T-6 Texan planes. You can even take the controls in a dual-cockpit, dual-control vintage WWII aircraft. When we say the sky’s the limit at Stallion 51, we mean it literally!
After a day of learning, it’s time for an evening of entertainment — and GameTime has everything you need. With over 100 indoor amusements — from classics like skeeball and mini bowling to the latest and greatest games in the Mega Arcade — the entire family is sure to have a blast! Oh, and while you’re here, be sure to check out the Play with Your Food deal in their restaurant, which comes with a 90-minute timed play card. Yum!
Your final day in Kissimmee has it all — family time, foodie time, and a few mysteries that are sure to make you go “Hmmmm”.
Celebration Bike Rental
Day four kicks off in Celebration where there’s so much to see and no better way to see it than by bike. Luckily, Celebration Bike Rental has everything you need to put the pedal to the metal. Take in the town’s scenic winding trails with the fam, then explore the picturesque town center. Along the way, you’ll see world-class architecture, beautiful waterfront views, and maybe even some local wildlife!
Celebration Town Tavern
Biking sure does work up an appetite, which is why the next stop is Celebration Town Tavern for an unforgettable meal. Located in Celebration Town Center, this family-owned steak and seafood restaurant is the perfect spot for a feast. And if you’re looking for the ideal drink to pair with your meal, Aseky was a big fan of their $5 pineapple brunch mimosas. Sounds delish to us!
