About the property

4 King Bedrooms, Family Suites, BEST KIDS' ROOMS IN ORLANDO! 5-10 Min to Disney

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 foot screen, projector, and 3D TV and family-friendly 3D/blu-ray/DVD movies; Playstation 4 & Wii (both with a dozen popular family video games); decked out STAR WARS, PRINCESSES, LITTLE MERMAID/NEMO, and FROZEN bedrooms AND all the corresponding Disney/Universal dress-ups with accessories for cosplay (sized infant to adult), toys, and 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 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!!!

About JanaLynn Young

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)! 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 Kissimmee West

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!

Family Week Enjoyed By All

  • 5 of 5

What a themed home this is. Enjoyed by all ages. Toddler girls enjoyed the dress up and toys, teenagers enjoyed the beautiful pool and hot tub.. the adults loved the beautiful bedrooms, well equipped kitchen and spaciousness of the home. The themed waffle makers were a hit with all. 14 of us with lots of extra room. Thank you Jana for your attention to detail.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Janalynn is wonderful! She is very accommodating in all aspects! The house was BEYOND what we expected. We were in town for a youth conference and competition with our church and it was wonderful to be able to cook our own meals and relax by the pool. The different Disney theme in each room was amazing. Very spacious in all rooms. If we return to Orlando in the future, my 1st call will be to Janalynn. I highly recommend her & her properties for your visit. Only about 5 mins away from Disney and 15 from Orange County Convention Center. We also used the Publix (Instacart) for grocery delivering. Another huge plus for us. Again, stay here or miss out.

As stated by previous guest, this place is awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you can think of, it is at the house: toys, games, cooler bags, plenty of space and bathrooms, etc. A lot of thought went to this house. Great distance from the parks and main street.

Grand Gathering and first time offsite!

  • 5 of 5

Let me first start off with the fact that I was nervous about missing the "Disney" experience not staying onsite at WDW. I have two sets of twins that are now 20, 20, 16 and 16. As a family of 6, it is becoming extremely difficult to stay onsite comfortably and it not being the price of buying a small car! Also, I wanted to give my daughter's friend the option of coming because she had never been to Disney. Disney has priced us out as far as a resort now. We used to pull our RV but the RV sites are $125/night too. My sister has two little ones (2 and 4 yrs) and I remember how it was not to be able to put them down to sleep and still be able to hang out with everyone. If you have little ones you might remember sitting in a hotel room with no lights and whispering so your babies could sleep! Last, I had 1 VRBO experience (my first VRBO experience too) that had left me disappointed. So, a year ago, I went into serious research looking for a home that would make us happy. I spent days! I ran into Janalynn's Happily Ever After and I was like bingo! But, I still had my doubts since I had learned that pictures and reviews can be deceiving. I talked to her on the phone a few times and got that gut feeling that she was the real deal! When we arrived on May 25th this year, I still had my doubts because I kept thinking it might be too good to be true! OH MY when we walked in! My doubts were squelched! The house is the bomb! It is CLEAN! It is well stocked! It is decorated sooo awesome (I might steal some ideas! ha) and Janalynn was always available and tentative. We had an awesome trip. We wished it was a day or two longer just so we could hang out at the house some more. Everything was perfect and we were very happy! We will book again with her.

Owner's Response: Thank you!!! ;-) Many of our guests have said exactly what you have said--they have typically stayed at Disney resorts, but find the pricing and chaos of the resorts to be excessive. Our "Happily Ever After" Luxury Playhouses are designed for multiple families to enjoy quiet time together, WITH all the magic of Disney! Sometimes we enjoy dining at the Disney resorts, but far prefer STAYING OUTSIDE of Disney for the togetherness our family enjoys at our private residences!!!

My kids and grandkids loved this house. Especially two 4yr olds who dressed up every day as Ariel.

(Some guests at our other property in the same neighborhood brag that they can get to the Disney parks quicker from the villa than from Disney property resorts!!!)

Located on a quiet residential street, 3 min off of US Highway 192, the villa is within a mile of dozens of restaurants, souvenir shops, grocery stores, Super-Target and Wal-Mart.
