History of Old Town

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

An unforgettable family experience featuring a unique collection of shops, dining options, rides, and family-friendly attractions. Old Town is a re-creation of a classic Florida town featuring historical architecture and distinctive storefronts. We step back in time when times were a little simpler, the pace more realistic, and the memories are just as magical. 

Old Town opened in December 1986, and is located on US 192 in Kissimmee, just minutes from Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Resort Orlando, Sea World, and International Drive. Old Town is a unique 18-acre entertainment district featuring over 70 unique and affordable shops, restaurants, bars, rides, and family-friendly attractions owned by local mom-and-pop businesses. In 2019, Old Town underwent a significant renovation that introduced new attractions, including an 86-foot Ferris wheel, enhancing the nostalgic experience for visitors. 

Relax as you stroll down our beautiful, tree-lined brick streets and discover why Old Town has become a beloved family tradition for over 30 years.

Old Town is the perfect destination for an afternoon or night of fun with friends and family. Mine for gold at Black Market Minerals, stroll through one-of-kind stores, test your fears at Mortem Manor, try a classic game of Skee-Ball at Happy Days Family Amusement Center, or relax with your favorite cocktail while enjoying free live entertainment on Trophy Row Stage.

Old Town is more than your average shopping experience.  We host weekly events, including America’s longest-running weekly car show and cruise every Saturday.  Step back in time and experience a car show like no other with hundreds of classic cars followed by our Saturday Nite Classic Car Cruise starting at 8:30 pm.

We invite you to enjoy the simple pleasures of classic American fun.
