On June 18, 2019, Osceola County Commissioners joined representatives of Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center for their “groundbreaking” ceremony.  This expansion project will add 302 guest rooms in a new tower located across from the resort’s pools, connected to the Everglades Atrium. 

The expansion will add 90,000 square feet of carpeted meeting and pre-function space.  This includes:

  • 30,000-square-foot ballroom
  • 30,000 square feet of breakout space
  • 30,000 square feet of carpeted pre-function space.  

There are also plans to include a new multi-level parking structure, a new lazy river feature for the resort’s pool, and a new 12,000-square-foot event lawn outside the convention center.  

We are positively excited to see the finished product of Kissimmee’s largest resort. Gaylord Palms’ expansion project is expected to be completed in 2021 and will offer a total of 1,718 sleeping rooms, nearly half a million square feet of space for events such as conventions, exhibitions, corporate functions, weddings, reunions and more.
