    Default Ramada Gateway, Kissimmee

    Hi all, Thomas Cook are doing an amazing price for 2 weeks at the end of August/Start of September.

    It would be staying at the Ramada Gateway in Kissimmee though. I liked staying on I-Drive last time, but for the price it may be worth venturing out as we drove most places anyway.

    Has anyone stayed at the Ramada Gateway?

    We've not stayed there ourselves but have driven past many times. We like Kissimmee as there are loads of places to eat.

    That part of the 192 in Kissimmee is quite similar to the northern part of I-Drive in terms of the hotels and restaurants nearby, and it's actually closer and much easier for visiting WDW. It's obviously further away from Universal and SeaWorld, though, and the restaurant choice is not quite as varied, and there are few upmarket options.

    This is right near where we stayed last time and are due to stay again in a few weeks. I can't comment on the accommodation but the location is great. It is so easy to get to the parks and international drive and there are lots of restaurants nearby. I agree Universal is a further away than disney but from memory it's only a 15/20 minute drive - although i may be wrong as it was almost 2 years ago we were there. Like you say you do drive most places anyway. I hope you book

    Ooo, when are you going Rach? Bet you're excited.

    I think it would be interesting to go to the Kissimmee area this time. Pointe Orlando was a great position for Universal, so staying near Disney this time will be a good experience this time.

    we will be there in 6 weeks - counting down the sleeps down to 40 now

    If you are more interested in doing Disney the location is great as it is only round the corner.

    Prior to our last holiday we've always stayed south of Kissimmee and found it to be a great location. There are plenty of places to eat on the 192, most of them at the budget end of the spectrum but still better than 95% of UK restaurants.
    5 Trips to Florida, Christmas in LA, Disneyland Paris twice and odd days here and there.

    All my trip reports are now HERE.
