Open Jaw

Kissimmee, Florida is set to add new attractions, entertainment, restaurants, accommodation expansions and more to its offering in 2020.

The destination is minutes from Central Florida’s theme parks which will each be adding new experiences this year, but beyond the parks, Kissimmee is home to thousands of acres of eco-tourism adventures, says Experience Kissimmee in a news release.

Here's what vacationers can expect in 2020.
