Fantasy in the Sky
“The sky over the Magic Kingdom’s regal Cinderella Castle explodes with brilliant color at night in the traditional Disney fireworks display.” Of course, Walt Disney World and the other theme parks are just a few things you can do when you visit Kissimmee. Every time we’ve gone, we’ve usually splurged on a theme park or two but, with cash being tight for most people nowadays, there are a lot of free things to see and do as well.
Probably the best free attraction is the Saturday Nite Cruise, which has been going on every week in Old Town Kissimmee for years. Classic cars come out of the woodwork and cruise up and down the brick streets; a lot of them are for sale, if you happen to be in the market for a vintage automobile. There’s also live entertainment, and the whole thing turns into a massive street party. A lot of the cars also turn up on Friday nights as well, but with a little less fanfare. Of course, as long as you’re in Old Town, there are plenty of places to shop and eat. But you might just as easily bring along a sandwich.
And speaking of free, you should enter the Kissimmee Freedom Sweepstakes, where you could win one of three weekend getaways for two, or one of two weeklong getaways for four. I did; I could use a free vacation right about now.
