It’s beginning to look (and feel) a lot like Christmas in Kissimmee, Florida, from festive parties at their world-famous theme parks to nightly snow fall in downtown Celebration.  Feel the wonder and magic all around as you create new family traditions or spend quality time with friends at their one-of-a-kind holiday events.  Kissimmee, Florida is where my family and I like to end our year with a huge bang!

Here are 10 spectacular holiday delights to check out this season.   

  1. Join Mickey and friends at Magic Kingdom during Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, a winter celebration for live entertainment, spectacular fireworks and an oh-so-jolly holiday parade. Select Nights November 8 - December 18, 2015
