Experience Kissimmee, the tourism authority for Osceola County, Florida, has signed an exclusive deal with Kissimmee Guest Services (KGS) to sell attraction tickets.

Under the agreement, Experience Kissimmee will now offer direct-to-consumer attractions tickets via the TicketSoft-powered KGS portal for the first time ever.

The new partnership allows guests of the Floridian tourism authority to purchase straight-to-the-gate theme park tickets, as well as tickets to attractions, sporting events, special events and more. These include attractions such as Walt Disney World Resort, SeaWorld Orlando and Universal Orlando Resort.

Through the deal, Experience Kissimmee can also offer discounted group tickets to sporting event participants, meeting and convention attendees and participating family reunions.

Tim Justynski, director of business relations for KGS, said: “We pride ourselves on providing a great value and amazing customer service to people who are on vacation and seeking the best value for their vacation dollar.

“Our partnership with Experience Kissimmee allows us to help even more travellers and families to enjoy all the great attractions and experiences that Central Florida has to offer.”

DT Minich, Experience Kissimmee president and chief executive, added: “We are excited to launch this partnership with Kissimmee Guest Services. Not only does it allow us to share Central Florida’s world-famous theme parks, thrilling ecotourism adventures, and exciting events with our more than eight million overnight visitors, but convenient ticketing will hopefully entice guests to return to the Kissimmee area often.”
