***LAST MINUTE gap dates available at $299/night promo Aug 25-29, and Sept 3-15 2018 ONLY. ***

As a recent guest described it, we "have the best homes for kids in Orlando"!!! (Yes, your many hours of hunting down the perfect vacation property are finally over! Our guests prefer our property over the Disney Resorts, too!)

This luxurious playhouse is worth the trip itself, for both kids AND adults!!! Four luxurious King Master Bedrooms (three of which are suites with access to adjoining kids' rooms and/or gorgeous custom bathrooms); Unbelievable Harry Potter Home Theater with 8 ft screen, 3D projector, 200+ family-friendly 3D/blu-ray/DVD movies; Playstation 4 and more than a dozen popular family video games; decked out STAR WARS, MOANA /MAUI, FROZEN, and other PRINCESS rooms AND all the corresponding Disney/Universal cosplay dress-ups with accessories (sized infant to adult), toy figures, and board games you can imagine!!! Gorgeous (and always heated) Waterfall Pool with separate Hot Tub that seats the whole family!

The fun doesn't end at the parks; this home is a dream vacation in itself! At ONLY FIVE to TEN MINUTES (2+ miles!!!) from Disney's Main Gate, 'Happily Ever After' vacation villa is the perfect mid-day getaway from the parks, or play-day, all-day, at home! You may never want to leave!!!



The layout of this 3,200 sq ft sunny, bright villa is the best available in the Disney area! The family room, kitchen, and breakfast nook are open, forming a great gathering area for families and friends. The main level is vaulted with tall ceilings and large windows to welcome the fantastic Florida sun! Three family suites with private bathrooms keep kids and parents nearby one another at night, but still optionally separated by doors for some getaway privacy!!!

***FAMILY GREAT ROOM with two button-tufted leather sofas, two side chairs, & end tables. Large 60 inch Sony Bravia TV with Roku and Blu-ray. FREE WIFI! FREE LOCAL AND LONG DISTANCE CALLS TO USA AND CANADA. All TVs (there are 5 total!!!) have Cable.

Has 1 high chair and 2 kids' dining boosters.

***LAUNDRY ROOM boasts gigantic 5.2 cu ft, top-of-the-line, front-load washer and 1 cu ft drawer "sidekick" washer and front-load dryer, with a second dryer in the media room, ensuring your time at the villa is spent playing; not laundering load after load of clothes and beach towels! Ironing board and iron.

***'CINDERELLA' at MIDNIGHT FAMILY/ KING MASTER BEDROOM SUITE with luxurious King bed, crystal chandelier/ceiling fan, gorgeous dresser, side tables, and tall storage wardrobe for clothing. Also within this suite is the elegant Cinderella Carriage Bedroom with a twin-sized princess carriage bed [Optionally, barn-style doors can lock off these two rooms from one another], and a large master walk-in closet with a full-sized baby crib. Gorgeous Cinderella gowns of all sizes, toddler to adult, will be the hit of the group...don't forget to pose for photos in front of this amazing Cinderella scene! Cinderella's regal and elegant style reigns in this, the largest Ensuite Master Bathroom with huge crystal, gorgeous granite vanity, double sinks, & over-sized walk-in shower with custom tile! (Each bathroom also has a hairdryer, and the 105-gallon water heater means everyone gets a hot shower!!!) May all your childhood dreams come true in this fairytale suite!

*** 'STAR WARS' FAMILY KING MASTER BEDROOM & ANAKIN SKYWALKER JEDI STARFIGHTER BEDROOM with King-sized bed and Star Wars droid side service tables! The King bed has large drawers for storing clothing. A huge, 47 inch Sharp Aquos TV, Roku, Cable, and Blu-ray are mounted on the wall of the space-age King bedroom! Both rooms have ceiling fans. The "Force" is very strong between these two space-aged bedrooms, with private access to one another through an optionally closing/locking pocket door between them! [Both rooms also have hallway access.] The double/full-sized (sleeps 2) Starfighter bed is crazy fun for Jedi protecting the galaxy. This is the only King Master that has its newly remodeled bathroom 3 steps into the hall (not within the bedroom).

***'STAR WARS' EWOKS ON PLANET ENDOR BEDROOM: The mammoth-sized Imperial AT-ST Chicken Walker threaten these adorable, life-sized Ewoks! Two twin beds are camouflaged by the foliage and treehouse hut from which the Ewoks battle the Dark Side troops. Kids will love to throw on a Cosplay-quality costume, grab a light saber or blaster, and join the battle with the Ewoks, or maybe even fight 'Darth Dad' if he'll suit up for a photo with the kids! Tons of fun toy Star Wars ships and figures will keep your Jedi busy playing for many hours. His time in this room may be his favorite memories of this special trip! And the kids will love it, too ;-)

About JanaLynn Young

[This is a favorite photo, of our son feeding seagulls at the beach!]

We are a family of 6, with two older boys and two younger girls, who are our inspiration (and from whom we get lots of advice) for creating this villa. We live in Utah, and find the attractions and beaches of Central Florida to be the most enjoyable vacation destinations for our family, young to old (even grandma and grandpa enjoy themselves)! In fact, grandma and grandpa loved Florida so much, they have retired nearby our vacation homes and now manage our properties. Our homes are created for family reunions and groups of friends enjoying themselves together at Disney!

JanaLynn Young purchased this villa in 2014

Why JanaLynn Young chose Rolling Hills at Formosa Gardens

1. You can't get a villa any closer to Disney. So nice to come home mid-day and refresh the family for a night of fireworks and more attractions!

2. We love the vaulting, tall ceilings, and openness between kitchen, great family room and dining areas, allowing large groups to be together!

3. So many master bedrooms have their own private bathrooms. This is a must for adults! But kids are close by, with the innovative optional suites we have remodeled.

4. The pool is large with a hot tub, and gets great sun year round. Too many of the pools we have seen at many rental homes are pitifully small.

5. Last, but not least, we have created the ultimate combination of LUXURY AND PLAY in this "Luxury Playplace" themed home.

If you've stayed in other large villas or even at Disney Resorts, you'll surely find this to be the best of any Disney home available!

What makes this villa unique

In keeping with the age-less appeal of Disney and the ocean, we have created 'Happily Ever After' Luxury Playplace to likewise fit the needs of children and adults alike. In addition to the fun of a private spa and pool, the villa is outfitted with all the comforts of home grown-ups are used to-- ensuite bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen with lot of small appliances and cookware, new, clean furnishings and linens; yet 'Happily Ever After' also has more kids' toys, dress-ups, movies and games than children can imagine! A stay at 'Happily Ever After' is a vacation in itself, for everyone!

A magical place for family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed staying at "Happily Ever After" as much as we loved Disney!! It was an extension of our days at the parks! Our grandchildren- aged 4-12 - LOVED dressing up in the character's clothes. They enjoyed the pool & hot tub.

Dreams really do come true! We lived happily ever after.

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and the decorations, costumes, pool, and Jacuzzi made it an experience in It’s self. The beds were super comfortable and with 15 of us staying there it never felt crowded. It was about a 10 minute drive to disneyworld, there was a Publix about 5 minutes away for grocery shopping, and plenty of restaurants close by. We would definitely stay here again. There is no reason not to. We felt at home! Thanks JanaLynn for sharing your home with us!

Fun play house for kids and adults

  • 5 of 5

The property is spacious, and can easily accommodate large groups and families. Each room and mini suite is tastefully themed and has access to its own bathroom.

You can't really stay any closer to Disney World unless you stay on Disney property.

The pool is a great feature to entertain when you are experiencing burn out from the parks.

There is a Wal-Mart super close, a Super Target, and a Publix grocery nearby. Be sure to grab kitchen trash bags, zip lock bags, toilet paper, pods for the washing machine and dishwasher. If you need beach towels pick them up at the gift shops they have the best prices a little as 4.00. Walmart beats out some prices on specific Disney World souvenirs but towels are $8-12. Wal-Mart had small quantity packages of these items. There is plenty of tableware, dishes, and all you need to prepare full meals if you wish for your family. We made waffles in the themed waffle makers and they were a hit.

There are restaurants of every price point around the facility. Bonefish grill offers a fresh seafood option at reasonable price and without the feel of a chain, even though it is one.

There are character costumes for kids and adults from Harry Potter to Moana, Cinderella and Star Wars. You may think this is silly but we found even are 16 and 26 year old boys taking their turn in the costumes.

I've stayed in many Airbnb, VRBO homes for travel. This home is a vacation home you will enjoy. It is outfitted with security alarms, has parking and is easy to get settled in and feel like you are safe and at home.

My four year old grandson has told me several times this is his favorite house and he never wants to leave. Kids find treasures troves of toys for the house and in the side yard there is pool toys and goggles for all ages. The pool isn't super deep. So keep that in mind before diving in if you are tall.

The owner is accommodating and we found accessible to answer questions. The only downside I could find was the previous visitors removed the house manual from the property. Don't do that use your camera to make memories. I'm not sure why anyone would want to take a book to a specific property.

There is plenty to do and if you aren't doing Disney World. Stay here, feel like you got a taste of Disney and enjoy all of the many other things this area has to offer.

You will enjoy your stay. Book today and get ready to enjoy Florida. You will not be disappointed.
