History

Exploring history near Reunion holiday rentals

Kissimmee, incorporated as a city in 1883, was originally named Allendale after Confederate Gen. J.H. Allen. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it was the site of steamship and railway industries. Those industries suffered during the depression known as The Panic of 1893, leaving citizens more dependent on agricultural employment like cattle ranching. The face of Kissimmee changed dramatically with the opening of Walt Disney World in nearby Orlando in 1971, which led to the city becoming a popular tourist destination. Kissimmee brands itself as being 'minutes away from everything', and that includes Disney World, Sea World and Discovery Cove. But Kissimmee has not forgotten its roots. You’ll find plenty of heritage sites and history near Reunion holiday cottages, especially pertaining to the Seminole tribe, as well as early European settlers and the Gullah people.

Food & drink

Sample local Kissimmee fare in Reunion

The Reunion Resort is known for five-star dining, where you can get everything from choice steaks to authentic Italian fare in the bistro. Outside the resort, fish and seafood are always good choices. Grouper is a popular type of Florida fish, and you can get it grilled, fried, in a sandwich or almost any other way you like. Florida also has a large Cuban population, so Cuban cooking can be found anywhere, especially the Cuban sandwich. This sandwich has variations but is normally made with pork, ham, Swiss cheese, dill pickles and mustard. It can be served hot or cold, usually on Cuban bread. Finally, if you want an authentic Floridian dessert, you might try a key lime pie. Key limes are usually smaller and more tart than their more common counterparts. Thus the filling — key lime juice, egg yolks and sweetened condensed milk — will be tart and tangy. Pair this with a classic graham cracker crust, and you have a dessert loved by both locals and visitors.
