Alaska Air will be providing airfare and Experience Kissimmee will be hosting my stay in Florida. As always, all opinions are my own.
Alaska Air is my favorite airline (I'm not an MVP for nothing!) and I'm so excited for their nonstop service from PDX to MCO to begin March 16, 2017! The new flight will be the first and only nonstop flight between Portland and Orlando.
For two days, we'll spend time doing all things Kissimmee!
We'll be staying in a vacation home. Did you know that Kissimmee is known as the Vacation Home Capital of the World? I didn't!
The Paddling Center at Shingle Creek offers Kayaking, Canoeing, Stand-Up Paddle Boards rentals tours and more. They're conveniently located in Kissimmee just outside of Orlando and minutes from the main gate of major area attractions. Shingle Creek is headwaters of the Everglades and was recently rated one of the top paddling trails in Florida.
You can't help but feel a little bit like a child again, grinning ear to ear as a wave of excitement rushes over you. Who knew that sightseeing on the water could be so exhilarating? It's a bit like a theme park ride, only it's real and it's nature, and it's a rush unlike any other. I haven't been on an airboat ride since I was a kid, so I'm pretty excited about this one.
Celebration Bike Tour
Discover picturesque neighborhoods with world-class architecture and a vibrant downtown area. Take in the natural wildlife while on scenic winding trails and waterfront pathways. They offer free bike trail maps with all bike rentals. Biking is such a nice way to take in the sights.
Kissimmee’s most thrilling treetop experience. They're more than a zip line. They're an action packed adventure! You’ll climb and soar with Tarzan swings, nets, ropes, trapeze and more. Test your limits on our challenging bridges, each one taking you higher into the forest canopy until you’re 50-feet atop our pine tree forest. Then fly to a breathtaking finish on a pair of 425-foot plunging zip lines. It’s heart pounding fun for everyone. This is my jam. One more place of ziplining fun I can check off my list! I can't wait to take some video of this one.
I'm looking forward to checking out some of the new dining options at the newly branded Disney Springs, formerly known as Downtown Disney. They've added some great new dining and shopping.
This trip is going to be a blast. I can't wait to try all Experience Kissimmee has in store for us. Adventure, here I come!
