Location, location, location! If you are looking for the closest 5 star resort homes to Disney, then look no further. If you don’t want to be stuck in long lines of traffic going to Disney (and they get really long the further you are away and we give you directions to go a special back way to the park!) then stay here. If you like staying in one of the only 5 star GATED communities that is 3 miles from Disney, look here and forget the rest!

Welcome to Magical Day Villa, our home away from home. We have two master suites, each with their own king bed with Serta icomfort mattresses and bathroom. The larger of the two master bedrooms, has double sinks and a large jetted tub. There is also a large walk in closet. It also has a King size Serta Icomfort mattress and a 32 inch flat screen TV. The second master bedroom has a bathroom with a standup shower, sink and toilet. It also has a king size Serta Icomfort mattress and 32 inch flat screen TV. The other two bedrooms have twin beds. One of the twin bedrooms was decorated with our younger guests in mind with the Mickey Mouse and friends theme. Each of the bedrooms has a 32 inch flat screen TV as well. The shared bathroom for the twin bedrooms was also changed to a Mickey Mouse motif that guests both young and old will enjoy! Each bathroom has its own hair dryer so you don’t have to bring one. Three of the bedrooms just got new dressers and some bedside tables to make storing clothes that much better!

There are two separate eating areas in our almost 2000 sq. foot home. One is an eating nook that is part of the living room that seats 4 people and the other is in the kitchen and seats 6 people. There are also bar stools for eating at the kitchen island. The whole kitchen/living/dining area is open concept, so when you are in the kitchen you can still talk to people in the living room and dining areas. The living area is beautifully decorated with comfortable leather furniture so you can relax after a long day at the parks watching the 55 inch flat screen TV. There is free WIFI and free US/Canada telephone calls.

The kitchen features granite counter tops and upgraded cabinets. The kitchen also comes equipped with all the pots, pans, plates, utensils, cups and electrics that you will need to enjoy your stay. There is an oven, microwave, dishwasher, side-by-side refrigerator, coffee maker and toaster. Off the kitchen is a separate laundry area with a washer and dryer and iron and ironing board for your laundering convenience.

And if a swim is what you had in mind, our home features a private, large swimming pool and Jacuzzi-spa(not a hot tub!). The pool is southwest facing, so it gets the sun all day long. There is a pool fence to protect our young guests from taking a swim on their own. There are also pool alarms on the doors that lead to the pool. Under our covered patio we have a table and chairs where you can have a snack while you take a dip in the pool. There are also separate lounging chairs for just laying out by the pool enjoying the sun or reading a good book. There are various pool toys to enjoy too. We provide pool towels too, so you don't have to bring some from home!

Pool/spa heat is always OPTIONAL at $25/day. They function as a unit, so you either heat both or neither. Heat is recommended Oct. - April. AGAIN, the spa is NOT a hot tub, it is attached to the pool.

For the real little ones, we have a pack 'n play with a sheet, a booster seat, a toddler bed rail, a baby monitor, a stroller and some toys.

We now have a games room in the garage, with a new AMF Master pool table, an air hockey table and a darts board! The pool table was professionally assembled and installed to ensure that it is completely level in the room.

Our home is also a short walk (5-10 minutes depending on speed) from The Windsor Palms clubhouse. Everything at the clubhouse is free with your rental and includes a large, communal pool (salt water) and toddler pool, a convenience store with Starbucks coffee and any supplies you might need in a pinch. Also at the clubhouse are many different games, pool tables, a Wii game room, a 50+ person movie theater, a workout gym, a business center with computers that are free to use, a sand volleyball court, a kids playground, a bike rental area and grills. The clubhouse just added a brand new Tiki bar at the pool, so guests can come relax and eat at the pool or grab some food and bring it back to the villa!

During high rental times (holidays, spring break and summer), we might require Sat. - Sat. stays.

We have a gas grill at the villa for use during your stay.

Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club is across the street and just down the street, about a mile away, as are numerous restaurants and grocery stores.

Harley-Davidson is just down the street if you want to rent a motorcycle and cruise around the area!

Besides the free WIFI at our villa, we also offer free calls in the US and Canada.

About Carrie

One of us lives in Vancouver, BC and the other one is from the NW Suburbs of Chicago.

Carrie purchased this villa in 2013

Why Carrie chose Kissimmee

My family and I took a trip to Disney in the fall of 2012. We stayed at the Windsor Palms and absolutely fell in love with the location and the amenities. This is by far the best place to stay when coming to Disney. No resort is closer or as nice as this place. We stayed here and we had other family that stayed in the park when we came in 2012. We always got home before they got back to their room because it took so long using the Disney bus system! Save yourself the headache and stay here!

We knew when we left we couldn't wait to come back and in the spring of 2013 we decided to see if we could purchase a place that we could share with friends and family near and far, so they could see how wonderful a place this area truly is.

What makes this villa unique

The size of this home and the open concept floor plan is what made this place unique to us. At almost 2000 square feet of living space, and two master suites, this home was perfect for one large family or two families looking to vacation together. It is large enough that you have room to spread out, but laid out well so that people in the kitchen can see and talk to the people in the living room and dining area. Plus, having a private pool and spa was a huge deal to us. Also, having a covered outdoor dining area was a big bonus. The community area on the property was also one of the best we saw compared to the other resorts in the area.

The house was extremely close all Disney parks! This house is very well-stocked with many pots pans plates glasses we have no problem cooking all of our meals. The two master bedrooms were great for our in-laws and ourselves and the kids rooms were cute. The pool was wonderful and heated was such a great advantage because we had some cooler nights. We really loved our stay

Great trip to sunny Orlando!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home in January 2018 with my husband, myself, and our 2 little kids. We have stayed at other villas in the past, and enjoyed our stay here the best. The community is located very central to all the fun of Orlando and the surrounding areas. I liked the feel of Windsor Palms as it was a touch smaller than some of the other resort communities we have been at -- bigger is not always better.

The home had a great layout and was perfect for relaxing. Loved the open kitchen/living room area and the fact that the laundry was off the kitchen. We found the whole house to be well stocked with helpful items (dishes, tupperwares, stroller, swimmies, baby monitor, blow dryers, bed rails...the list goes on!). It was also very reassuring to have door alarms on the doors leading to the pool area.

Carrie and her property management team were very helpful and quick to reply to an email or phone call. We did have a slight glitch with the pool pump/heater, but the team worked to get it resolved as quick as possible AND went above and beyond to help do everything to ammend the situation. Things happen, of course, but the response to situations is what matters...and we were thankful they were quick and helpful.

Being from the cold north, we enjoy taking winter vacations somewhere a tad more sunny. We will certainly keep this property in mind for our next trip to Florida. I would also advise any friends traveling to consider staying at this home because it was clean, close, and conveneint!!! Wish we were there now!!!

Well furnished ,clean and ideally situated for restaurants and theme parks

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I plus my son and three grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The villa, situated on a gated estate, was clean and well furnished.

The children enjoyed the pool on their return from the day out. We were only visiting the Universal and Seaworld parks on this occasion, which were within easy driving distance, but the Disney parks were very close .

There are a variety of eating places close by .

We would highly recommend this villa.

The home was beautiful and we felt at home immediately.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our adult children and one grandma. We loved the house and the pool was great. Even though set close to other homes it felt very private and relaxing. We also loved the location. We spent very little time driving to the Disney attractions and universal parks. Close to any kind of retail you may need and restaurants everywhere. We made one call for a minor inquiry to the manager and she was very prompt to answer and very pleasant. Our question was answered quickly and our vacation uninterrupted . This was our first experience booking with homeaway.com and it was terrific and easy. Our expections were exceeded! Thanks for a great time away. As a bonus the open floor plan and lay out of the bedrooms and bathrooms allowed our daughter in a wheel chair to move around easily which is a rare benefit that is priceless to us. Also the bedrooms and bathrooms let everyone have their own privacy and space. We had a lot of family time together and still an escape to our own space when desired. Couldn't have asked for more.

Everything that you need is either on property or within a couple miles of our property. Disney is literally 3 miles from our home. Universal Studios and Sea World are also very close. Any restaurant that you could want to go to is mere minutes from our home. There are also several grocery stores within 5 minutes. There is a Target Store about 5 minutes away. There are many gas stations within a couple minutes. There is an ATM on property, but if you prefer a bank, there are many of those too. The town of Celebration is only about 5 miles away and is a cute place to go for dinner and a walk by the lake. There is also a Hello Kitty Store/Sanrio in Celebration that little girls love to visit. Mystic Dunes Golf Club is right across the street for those of you who love to golf. There are many other golf spots in the area too. If anyone is interested is renting a Harley Motorcycle for a day, there is a dealer a mile away that offers daily rentals. If you have any specific questions, please contact us and we can point you in the right direction!
