Kissimmee Decade of Memories Contest

I’ve spent the last four days experiencing just a few of the many things Florida’s Kissimmee has to offer:

  • ShrekFeast character breakfast at Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center
  • SeaWorld
  • Boggy Creek Airboat Rides
  • VIP to Arabian Nights Dinner Attraction
  • A fabulous stay at Westgate Resorts Vacation Villas
  • Shopping at Premium Outlets

But this was just a taste of what Experience Kissimmee’s Decade of Memories Contest winner would get to enjoy for the next 10 years. In case you missed it Experience Kissimmee, in conjunction with their partners, hosted a fabulous contest to give away a decades worth of family vacations to one lucky winner. Over 15oo people submitted their essays and a panel of judges narrowed it down to just 25 entrants. Those 25 entrants were sent a memory making kit from this they created a video. From there it was narrowed down to just 5 finalist!

They were competing for a chance to win the Grand Prize – 10 Kissimmee Vacations for the winner and up to 5 guest, airfare, vacation villa accommodations at Westgate Resorts in Kissimmee and a rental car. The Experience Kissimmee team invited out the 5 finalist AND their families for an exciting four days of adventure before a big winner reveal luncheon on Tuesday.

“Brooke’s video, A Decade of Fun in the Sun, is about the excitement families experience before a sunny escape to Kissimmee,” shared Tracy Ward, interim executive director for Experience Kissimmee. “She now has an entire decade of vacations to explore all the theme parks, outdoor adventures, outstanding sports and recreation, premier shopping, and fabulous Kissimmee weather.”

If you live anywhere in the United States that experiences snow you will be able to identify with Brooke’s contest video. Brooke’s family showed just how much they long for sunny Florida days, theme parks, adventure and fun during the long cold winter month. Now they will have a nice escape each winter for the next 10 years! Congratulations Shuff Family!
