This festive season, the city of Kissimmee in Florida is giving visitors the best of both worlds. 

With daytime temperatures in the 70s, the weather is a vast improvement on the UK, yet Kissimmee is determined to make it a white Christmas for tourists. 

The community of Celebration, originally founded by the Walt Disney Corporation, is being turned into a Winter Wonderland, with fake snow falling each night, carol singing, horse-drawn carriage rides and an ice rink. 

At the Gaylord Palms resort, artisans from China have created more than 900,000kg worth of hand-carved ice sculptures to bring the story of Frosty the Snowman to life. ICE! even features four slides for kids. 

You can also experience a special holiday dinner show called 'Amirah's Wish' at Arabian Nights. This horseback extravaganza is taking place from 1 December to 2 January, featuring the characters Prince Raswan, Princess Amirah and, of course, Santa Claus.ADNFCR-408-ID-801663351-ADNFCR
