Ultimate Family Reunion Itinerary

If it’s been a while since the entire family got together, there’s no better spot to reconnect than right here in Kissimmee! Your next five days will be full of family fun and activities that everyone — from the very young to the very young at heart — is sure to love.

Day 1

Nurturing a love of Nature

Getting out and exploring the natural world is a must for any family reunion. And, luckily for you, Kissimmee puts the “great” in the great outdoors. 

Wild Florida

Glide across the Headwaters of the Everglades on an airboat adventure with Wild Florida. You’ll explore protected swamps, marshes, and rivers while skilled captains share fascinating stories and history from right here in Central Florida. Keep your eyes peeled for amazing alligators and beautiful bald eagles while you’re here — they’ll be a highlight of your vacation.

The Paddling Center at Shingle Creek

After a fast-paced morning, slow it down a touch with a relaxing paddle at the Paddling Center at Shingle Creek. Enjoy an eco-tour led by a nature expert who’ll guide you on a tranquil journey through the waters of a beautiful cypress forest. It’s the perfect way to see a whole new side of Kissimmee.

Universal CityWalk

Balance out your nature day with some exciting entertainment at the Epicenter of Awesome — Universal CityWalk. Here, the family can enjoy a delicious dinner, do some shopping, and even play a round at Hollywood Drive-In Mini Golf. Actually, make that two rounds — one on The Haunting of Ghostly Green course and one on the Invaders From Planet Putt-Putt course.

Day 2

Flying High

A bird’s-eye view is the best way to see everything Kissimmee has to offer. That’s why today is the day you get to fly high in the sky.

Maverick Hot Air Balloon Adventures

The day starts with an early morning trip to Maverick Hot Air Balloon Adventures for a sunrise flight. Remember to bring your camera for some absolutely stunning photos of Central Florida’s natural beauty — as well as maybe a #SkyHighSelfie or two. Maverick Hot Air Balloon Adventures can carry eight passengers in a single balloon — meaning there’s plenty of room for everyone.

Day 3

Fun in the Sun

Today is all about getting out there and exploring, learning new things, and having a whole lot of fun while doing it.

Celebration Bike Rental

Get ready to put the pedal to the metal at Celebration Bike Rental. From Celebration’s quiet, manicured streets to the scenic waterfront pathways, this is a lovely and leisure-filled way to see more of Central Florida while enjoying a little exercise (yes, it’s possible to enjoy exercise on vacation).

View Details

Gatorland

Everyone is sure to bite at the chance to spend the afternoon at Gatorland, a Kissimmee classic. Take in the Alligators: Legends of the Swamp show, visit the petting zoo, and stop by the White Gator Swamp to see the rare albino alligators. And if you’re feeling brave, strap into the Screamin’ Gator Zip Line and zoom over the Alligator Breeding Marsh, where more than 130 gators will watch on from below!

Disney Springs

Even when the sun sets, there’s still plenty of adventure to be had, especially if you’re making your way to Disney Springs. With more than 60 dining options, this is the perfect spot to grab a bite to eat and follow it up with a bit of shopping or family time. Catch a movie, go bowling, or check out the all-new show Drawn to Life Presented by Cirque du Soleil & Disney — a tribute to the art of Disney animation.

Day 4

The Happiest Day on Earth

Big families all have different interests, and that’s a good thing! But one thing we think most families agree on is that no visit to Kissimmee is complete without a day at Walt Disney World Resort.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park

As the first Disney park to open every day, Disney’s Animal Kingdom is the perfect place to start your adventure. Begin with an early trek across the African savanna with Kilimanjaro Safaris, where 34 different species live across 110-acres of authentic habitat. Then, travel through time to rescue a dinosaur in a race against a meteor, ride the Kali River Rapids, and visit Pandora - The World of Avatar.

Magic Kingdom Park

Magic Kingdom Park has the family fun turned up to the max. There’s something for all ages here from relaxing tours through Tomorrowland on the Peoplemover to heart-pounding Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. There’s even The Hall of Presidents for the history-buff in your family! Best of all, you can cap off the day with a beautiful fireworks show.

Day 5

Until Next Time

The family reunion might be coming to an end, but there’s still one more day to make memories — and you’re going to make the most of it.

Lazy H Ranch

Saddle up for an authentic equestrian experience at Lazy H Ranch. Here, your family can take a trot on the trails along Lake Toho, through open prairies, and under the shade of hundred-year-old oak trees. Best of all, Lazy H Ranch offers 60- and 90-minute rides, so nobody will have a hitch in their giddy up!
