One guest told us they had stayed on site at WDW their last trip and when you calculate in waiting for the bus to arrive, then stops along the way, they could drive themselves to the park in the same time. With us you are not paying $800-$1000 per night per room. Then where does your family hang out when there is down-time? Not around your own private pool!

About the owner: We spent our honeymoon at Disney World, and fell in love with it too. We are beyond excited to help offer that experience to our fellow travelers.
Why this property? We are travel nurses and when we sold our home in Arkansas we wanted to have a place that we could enjoy, but also rent when we were away. We have been to Disney World many times over the years and wanted to share that experience, and the making of a life-time of memories with others.
Such an amazing home! You want for nothing. My grandkids were in awe of the dress up clothes.They loved the games room. It was very clean. The pool was warm and they had so many beach towels and pool toys. Close to everything! We went for a family vacation and the 14 of us were all very satisfied! Thank you to our great hosts!!! Question was answered immediately. Where you stay can make or break a trip and this one made ours️
