Time to start brainstorming your ideas for your winning essay! Did you know that Kissimmee is known as the gateway to fun because is is close to the major theme parks? Which parks would you be most excited to visit? There are a lot to choose from: Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld Orlando, Universal Orlando Resort and LEGOLAND Florida. You are also close to some fun adventures like nature tours, zip lining and airboat rides. That’s right – you could see some gators!

My last trip to the area was eight years ago – long before I was a mommy! A friend and I had a blast at Universal, SeaWorld (love those puffins!) and other attractions. We’re heading there in a few months and I am so excited to introduce my son and husband to the area. Although our trip is still five months away, I already have notes on all of the places we want to visit in the area.

  1. Kissimmee is so fantastic! I was just there a few weeks ago and expereinced so much more than just nearby Disney. Off to tell my Canadian relatives about this contest!

  2. I have always wanted to visit Kissimmee FL, we are always in Orlando but I have heard such great things about Kissimmee and I will have to take a trip there. I would love to win this!
