Car Hire Kissimmee

Kissimmee Guide

Kissimmee is almost all about Disney with Walt Disney World only moments away from Kissimmee. It’s hard to get away from the glitz and hype and maybe you don’t want to but for those who aren’t fond of mice or ducks, try the many safaris into the Everglades to spot crocodiles and more. There’s plenty of adventure to be had with swamp buggy rides, airboats and on a more sedate level, bass fishing in Lake Tohopekaliga. Kissimmee also has an old town, with buildings a century old or more. To attract visitors, many events take place there at a weekend so see local flyers for details.


Kissimmee Directions

To get to Kissimmee quickly from Orlando airport, take the Florida 528 Tollway to the Florida Turnpike and turn south, you’ll find Kissimmee on your right. It’s around thirty minutes by hire car.


Kissimmee Parking

Parking is very comprehensive at Orlando Airport with free cell phone parking, a valet service, long and short term, offsite and shuttle services too.


Kissimmee Flight Information

There are plenty of flights to Orlando Airport from across America and from Europe. The UK has three different departure points with several airlines so getting to Orlando and Kissimmee is easy.


Hotels Near Kissimmee Airport

The Howard Johnson Express Inn is one of the cheapest hotels in Kissimmee whilst still getting a good standard of room. Expect to pay around $22 a night for a room there. We like the Lake Berkley Resort at Hapimag Orlando for excellent accommodation and still for only $38 a night.


Kissimmee Time Zone

Kissimmee is 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time and located in the Eastern Time Zone (GMT-5)

Kissimmee Info

Kissimmee was initially just the base for the Florida drainage operation but the requirement for steamboats for transportation gave it a fresh impetus as a boat building city. That industry eventually slipped away as the railroad network grew until Disney World opened bringing millions of tourists to the region each year.  All was not rosy for the city as in 2004 it was extensively damaged by three consecutive hurricanes.

Kissimmee Trivia:
  • Kissimmee was first founded in the 1850s and called Allendale
  • It was renamed in 1883 when it received its city status
  • The city originally made many of the steamboats that plied the waterway that passed through Kissimmee
  • In 2004, the city was hit by three consecutive hurricanes causing billions of dollars of damage
