Kissimmee Opening Information Following Hurricanes

In an effort to bring you the most up-to-date information regarding hurricane preparedness and post-storm openings, Experience Kissimmee works with the Florida Emergency Management services during the entire hurricane season. Your safety is top of mind in all that we do.

Historically, Central Florida experiences minimal hurricane damage which means your vacation can go on as planned. While theme parks, attractions, hotels and resorts, vacation homes, restaurants, and other businesses have their own operating procedures, Experience Kissimmee will update you with closures here and on our Instagram and Facebook pages. 

If you’re looking for more information on hurricanes and what that means for the season, take a look at our FAQ.

Hotels and Vacation Homes

Many hotels and resorts are fully open and accepting reservations. If you’re looking for specific information for hotels and vacation homes, please contact them directly. Hotels and resorts are great options when looking to stay in Kissimmee for a while. Whether you’re here for business, your significant other, or the whole family, these accommodations have all the amenities you’re looking for. For those visiting with small and large families, vacation home rentals are amazing ways to accommodate large groups.

What’s Next?

Looking to donate to the communities affected by the storm, the Florida Disaster Fund (the state’s official private fund) is waiving all fees so that 100% of every donation is used for Florida’s recovery.

From festivals and events to spending time with family all under one roof, Kissimmee is the ideal spot for your holiday trip.
