Old Town is located near Walt Disney World in Kissimmee. The official website describes Old Town as follows:

An entertainment district filled with unique collection of shops, restaurants, bars, rides, free weekly events, and car shows.

Next to Old Town is the Kissimmee campus of Fun Spot America. They’re so close that many people do not realize that are not the same complex. Fun Spot features rides, games, and foods that you might associate with a carnival; just on a much larger level.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
