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

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!

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!!!

A very fun place to rent for families with young kids.

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

The Ultimate Disney Experience

  • 5 of 5

This house has been prepared top to bottom to offer the ultimate Disney experience. Each roomed is themed and decorated. Every amenity is provided. There are toys and costumes for the children and movies and games for the rest of us. Hot tub and pool. Why would we want to stay anywhere else? We almost didn't want to go to Disney World, which is very close by the way, because we wanted to stay and play at the house. A beautiful place to stay and enjoy your Disney or Universal Vacation.

Wonderful Fantasy Vacation Home

  • 4 of 5

Our family of seventeen included 4 families; 7 adults and 10 children between 10 and 1 years of age. The house was GREAT! Every family had their own space, every child had so much fun with dress up, toys and games to play, PLUS the swimming pool & hot tub were wonderful. We probably would have liked the pool a little warmer for the Jan evenings but the kids loved it! We appreciated the strollers we could use for the theme park days, the grill for many meals and the washer & dryer for all the swim towels! It made for some awesome memories and really appreciate all the "attention to details" this house included! We couldn't have dreamed a more wonderful vacation! Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thank you for all your positive feedback! Yours is the first review we've had that has NOT been Five Stars, so I wish you had contacted us to let us know if something was amiss! I'm wondering why the pool wasn't warm enough in January... we actually keep our pools warmer than anyone else we know of (most of the resorts and vacation rental properties only heat to 80 or 85 degrees, and we heat to 92 or 93 in the winter)! Actually, I came with my extended family to vacation, and checked out the day your group arrived, and our group, including adults, enjoyed the pool as much as the hot tub. Wonder if the water on the pool got too low to continue pumping and heating properly??? That should have been very easy to fix, by just adding more water to the pool through the hose. Wish we could have helped you if we had known!

'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.
