Kissimmee Memories and Dreams Contest!

There is no better gift you can give your child than to simply spend quality time with them. I believe in the power of travel and family vacation, there is no  better way to spend some quality time with your kids!   One of my favourite places to whisk the kids away to?  Florida!  So many family friendly activities all crammed into one  beautiful state.  Have you been dreaming about a family trip to Central Florida?  There is so much to do in Kissimmee, located near the Orlando theme parks and all of the entertainment options Central Florida has to offer.  You will be amazed!EexperienceKmed_sunrise-balloon

With its proximity to world-class theme parks such as Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and Universal Orlando Resort, Kissimmee is known as the gateway to fun.  The destination’s carefully preserved natural  environment also allows visitors to get up close to Florida’s untapped wilderness with nature tours, zip lining and airboat rides.  There are so many beautiful areas and communities to discover, the Town Of Celebration is always one of our favourite stops.   


From world-class resorts to spacious vacation homes, Kissimmee has more than 46,000 lodging units and unrivalled entertainment options. More than 505,000 Canadians visit the Central Florida destination annually to recharge and reconnect with family.

This is why I am so excited to help share the news about the amazing

  1. One of my best friends just spent a month in Florid and loved it. It is on my list of places to visit, now I only need to win the lottery!

    • Oh honestly, one of my best tricks for staying and saving money in Florida is to stay in a vacation home! We have saved big dollars by sharing a house with another family. A 6 bedroom house split by two families for a week! Kind of brilliant! Now of course you would only have to consider this if you don’t win the Kissimmee Memories and Dreams Contest! 🙂 Hope you will enter!

  2. Love Florida! Thanks for telling us about the contest, will go and check it out.

  3. Ohh I would love to take my kids to Florida, maybe the grandparents too! Thanks for the heads up!

    • You’re welcome!! I hope you enter the contest and keep me posted on how you do. Even if you don’t win I will COMPLETELY recommend this area for a family vacation. There really is something in Kissimmee for everyone!
