Save vs Splurge Experiences in Kissimmee

If you’re planning a trip to Central Florida, you’re probably trying to make the most of your money to get the most out of your trip without going broke. The theme parks alone are a big splurge. However, there are plenty of more resourceful and inexpensive experiences in and around the area that can help you balance your travel budget. One of the first things to do is make a reservation at FantasyWorld, one of the top Kissimmee Florida resorts. This comes under save and splurge, thanks to the amount of space you get, along with the extensive entertainment options from crafts to water parks and much more. Plus, the full kitchen in each villa lets you save a little money on meals so you can splurge on a fancy meal.

The theme parks are just a short ride away, but they definitely come under splurge. Fortunately,  you’ll be surprised at just how much there is to do in Kissimmee, often for free or for a small price. From air-boat rides to a day spent at Kissimmee Lakefront Park, you’re sure to have fun at an affordable price. The park covers 18 acres and is on the shore of Lake Tohopekaliga, right in downtown Kissimmee! It includes 15 pavilions, two playgrounds, a fishing pier complete with its own bait shop, a concession stand, a splash pad and 475 feet of boardwalks for some beautiful Florida scenery.

Another inexpensive and interesting option is Pioneer Village at Shingle Creek, which takes you back to the early days of Kissimmee with original pioneer homes, a general store, blacksmith shop, a schoolhouse, and more, all of which can be surprisingly interesting even if history isn’t your thing.

However, if you want to splurge a bit, head down the coast a little to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex and take a private tour. You’ll get a unique experience of the real, historic spacecrafts that have taken unforgettable journeys. You’ll also get to talk with some retired astronauts and even go behind the scenes to get an idea of what it’s like during liftoff thanks to the Shuttle Launch Experience.

Florida’s space program is certainly worth a visit, but the state’s beautiful flora and especially  fauna are definitely worth a splurge, as well. Discovery Cove. is an all-inclusive day resort where you can rent a cabana and then get a chance to get up close with a wide range of animals. You can even become a trainer for a day, with the special opportunity to have a private photo session with dolphins, and meet some colorful tropical birds and adorable otters. Discovery Cove is a special park where you can swim with dolphins, snorkel with a massive array of tropical fish and even some rays. You also get to get up close with everything from flamingos to marmosets.

Even if you are splurging on the theme parks, don’t forget Disney Springs. No tickets are needed. You can spend a whole day exploring this extra bit of Disney magic, with live performances at the House of Blues, tours on water and land, and some truly world-class dining. There’s also Universal CityWalk with plenty of attractions that include karaoke, 1950s-themed mini golf, and all of your Disney-fueled shopping needs.

These are just a few of the saves and splurges to be found in and around Kissimmee. You’ll find great restaurants right in Kissimmee, especially ones that include a show, such as Sleuths Mystery Dinner Show, but you can also eat a truly world-class meal at places like Morimoto Asia.

Your best bet is to find the perfect blend of save and splurge so you can have a trip of a lifetime. From the magic of Disney World to the wonder of outer space, it’s easy to find something special for everyone and plenty of fun and inexpensive entertainment that lets you spend some more personal time with your family and friends, so book one of the vacation villas at FantasyWorld, one of the leading Kissimmee Florida resorts that is a save and a splurge all in one, and you’ll be set for a truly unique vacation.
