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)!
JanaLynn Young purchased this villa in 2014
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!
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!
We had a wonderful time at this vacation home. We were a large family of 22, with 12 kids! The kids loved the Disney themes throughout the entire house. They enjoyed the pool time and playing throughout the house. Our children were ages 1 1/2 to 14 and this house pleased them all! It was very clean and comfortable. The house was close enough to the Disney parks but far enough away from the hustle and bustle. Thanks for a memorable vacation!
Our family (grandparents, two sets of parents and five grandchildren) had an amazing stay here last month - 19 days of fun! The kids luuuuuuuved their themed rooms and made full use of them (and the Harry Potter room) & all the dress-ups. Fully recommend this villa to anyone wanting to be close to the Parks, with a great pool, fantastic rooms, and hundreds of extras. The villa was spotless, well maintained, and JanaLynn & her family were so helpful during our stay. We would book this villa again without hesitation.
Our group absolutely loved the house. All the rooms were nicely done up. Plenty of space, pool area was nice and relaxing. We will definitely be returning sometime! The staff was very nice over the phone with getting everything setup for our stay.
This place is beautiful and kid friendly. Accommodated our family reunion and we were a LARGE group. The kids insisted we stayed at the house instead of going to Disney World for a 2nd day. Highly recommend it! Clean and so much fun!
Me and my family stayed at the Happily Ever After Villa July 27th thru August 2nd. This Villa was big enough to fit my entire family of 21 people and the rooms were awesome. Great Location and loads of games and activities for the children. I loved the decorations and all the different dress up outfits for the kids. This was our first trip to Disney World and the Villa made it feel like a magical trip the whole entire stay. The manager of the Villa is very nice and really tries her hardest to work with you to have a great stay at the Villa. After my mom's sister pasted away we had to cancel our trip to Disney for that year because it just wasn't good timing. Mrs. Young allowed us to switch our dates and even showed she cared by asking about how my mom was holding up. The best part to me about the whole Villa is the different Disney pancake makers. I know it sounds silly with all the wonderful things available at the Villa but all 11 of the kids and even some of the adults were complaining about not being at a resort and having Mickey shaped pancakes but the Villa turned those frowns upside down. On two of the Mornings that we stayed at the Villa I woke up and made everyone different pancakes. The choices were Dark Vader, Olaf, Princess, and Mickey. Overall our stay was Awesome and I definitely encourage other families to go and stay at this Villa. I look forward to our next family vacation in Florida just so we can stay at this Villa and see what new decorations and fun things will be awaiting us!!!!
The rooms looked exactly as pictured. The rooms were small in size but we managed to fit 22 people. No complaints!! Thanks for a great place!!!
'Happily Ever After' villa is located right in the middle of it all just over 2 mi (5 min) drive from the Disney Maingate--you can't get any closer to Disney than this! (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. Universal Studios or Sea World--20 min; LegoLand--45 min, NASA's Space Center--45 min, Ormond/Cocoa/Daytona Beaches--1 hr 10 min. Dozens of great golf courses in the area.
