Family Fun

No parent wants to hear the dreaded phrase "I'm bored." Especially when you're in Kissimmee, where there are lots of family activities for you to enjoy with your kids. Of course we're known for theme parks, but small children can get tired and overwhelmed during a full-day theme park visit. Here are some places where you and your family can spend quality time together and have unforgettable experiences with less expense and effort.

Kissimmee Lakefront Park. Your kids will find plenty to do at Kissimmee Lakefront Park, a beautiful facility with numerous amenities on the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga. The park features a playground, basketball courts, volleyball courts, hiking and biking trails, and much more. You can also use the convenient grills to prepare lunch or dinner, or stroll over to one of the many nearby restaurants. The park is a great place to relax.

Crayola Experience Orlando. Located in Central Florida's largest shopping center, The Florida Mall, the Crayola Experience is a place where your kids can give full rein to their imaginations and creativity. Featuring 26 hands-on attractions, the Crayola Experience encourages kids to do much more than color, including make drip art, melt and mold crayon wax, and even create your own personalized Crayola crayons.

Disney Springs. If you want your kids to experience some Disney magic without going into one of the parks, Disney Springs is a great alternative. This shopping, dining, and entertainment district features a number of things kids will love. The Coca-Cola Store, modeled after a 1920s bottling plant, has Coca-Cola memorabilia and displays, a photo op with the Coca-Cola polar bear, and a rooftop bar where kids can take in panoramic views of Disney Springs. Other fun places to visit include the LEGO Store, where kids can build structures from the "brick pits," or create and race LEGO vehicles. If your kids want to cool off, and you don't mind them getting wet, they can enjoy a splash pad or wait under Squirting Stitch at the World of Disney store.Disney Springs features a number of things kids will love.

Old Town Kissimmee. Your kids will have fun exploring Old Town's shops and amusements, including the Happy Days Family Fun Center, Rootin' & Tootin's Shootin' Alley, and the Great Magic Hall. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights you can experience different car cruises and events, including Thursday Night Bike Night, Friday Night Muscle Car Show & Cruise, and Saturday Nite Classic Car Cruise.

Fun Spot America - Kissimmee. Right next door to Old Town, you'll find Fun Spot, a family amusement park that features roller coasters, thrill rides, go-karts, arcades, and much more. If your kids are younger, Fun Spot also offers Kid Spot, with smaller, gentler rides aimed at children 2-6 years old. You can also customize your Fun Spot time, paying by the ride or getting all-day or multi-day passes.

When you're ready to make memories with your kids, Kissimmee offers a lot of other adventures and family-oriented activities. If you're headed here for vacation, you can order a free vacation planning guide. And you can always find more information about things to do and see at experiencekissimmee.com.
