Donating to the communities affected

Kissimmee is open to visitors following the impacts of Hurricane Ian. Orlando International Airport (MCO) is open, and the majority of our area’s attractions have opened following the hurricane. The safety of our community and visitors is our top priority, and we will continue to support them as they navigate the aftermath of the extreme weather conditions. We will continue to keep key assistance information on our website and abide by Osceola County’s Emergency Services website directions.
