Kissimmee and Central Florida have no shortage of luxurious experiences for locals and visitors alike. Whether you’re in the mood for shopping, dining, or relaxing in your own private vacation home, you can take your trip to the next level in Kissimmee. Check out Kyla Kenedy’s trip in episode two of The Kissimmee Experience

Kyla Kenedy

This rising star always knew how to make everyone around her laugh at such a young age, which is why so many were blown away by her performance as Mika Samuels on AMC’s The Walking Dead in 2013. At just 10 years old, Kyla Kenedy was already working with some of the top performers in entertainment. After a brief stint on NBC’s The Night Shift, Kyla landed a role on ABC’s Speechless in 2016 which ran for three seasons. Along with ABC’s Mr. Mayor and the Prime Original If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, this is only just the beginning of an exciting career for this versatile young actress.

Vacation Home Bliss 

Kyla’s Vacation Home 

The best way to tap into the luxury of the destination is to elevate your accommodation. In Kissimmee, you can choose one of several high-end resorts, boutique hotels, or one of over 30,000 vacation homes. 

Kyla stayed at a property managed by Jeeves Florida Rentals with vaulted ceilings, a private pool, and enough space for several friends and family members. In fact, some of Kissimmee’s vacation home mansions have up to 15 bedrooms, themed bedrooms, theater rooms, arcade rooms, and more — perfect for bringing the whole extended family.  

Vacation Home Expert Services 

The vacation homes in Kissimmee, such as the ones managed by Jeeves, are perfect for organizing events or arranging for other in-home services. You can arrange for personal chefs, catering, spa services, mixologists, or other experts to make your stay unforgettable. In fact, to avoid overpacking when hosting special events, many visitors arrange for a decorator to stage the home for holiday dinners, weddings, or other social gatherings.  

The Experience Kissimmee team surprised Kyla with a personal chef during her visit — Chef Elaine Alves, who operates her own local catering business. Elaine arrived mid-morning and prepared an amazing meal for Kyla and the show host, Jen Bonner, a prepare-your-own taco bar with three types of protein complete with all the fixings. The film crew loved it too!  

The Mall at Millenia’s Personal Stylist Suite 

Like many of us on vacation, Kyla reserved some quality time for one of her favorite activities—shopping. Jen took her to Central Florida’s premier luxury shopping destination, The Mall at Millenia, an unparalleled experience with 150 stores, services and eateries. Every tile, stone, and pane of glass has been meticulously upkept and looks pristine even after 20 years, and the gently curved corridors draw the eye through the light-filled interior.  

No luxury-themed itinerary in Central Florida is complete without experiencing a complimentary session in The Mall at Millenia’s Personal Stylist Suite. Located across from the Concierge Desk, the stylists operate by appointment only and can pull looks from across the property’s many brands.  

Prior to Kyla’s appointment, she filled out a short questionnaire to help the stylist accommodate her style, taste, and budget preference. The 2-hour session is always complimentary, but the helpful tips and recommendations they provide will stick for years to come.  

Salt & the Cellar by Akira Back 

After freshening up with a wardrobe change, Kyla and Jen made their way to Kissimmee’s luxurious gem the ette hotel (styled in lowercase), to visit the lobby restaurant Salt & the Cellar. The hotel lobby oozes elegance, and the restaurant led by Chef Akira Back never disappoints.  

The two actresses started with signature mocktails, including a recently unveiled drink designed by their on-staff mixologist team. The appetizer was delicious as well, and the main course displayed the meaning behind the restaurant’s name, with several flavors of salt dips accompanying the tomahawk steak.  

Curate Your Luxury Experience in Kissimmee 

Kyla’s itinerary covers only a few of the many elevated excursions and activities Kissimmee has to offer. Other luxury experiences include a day at Discovery Cove, a curated (and air-conditioned) tour with Orlando Helicopter Adventures, or a visit to one of the many top-rated restaurants and activities at Disney Springs.
