“Amazing Disney Themed Vacation Home!”
We absolutely loved this vacation home and would definitely go back! All adult rooms had king size beds and were very comfortable. The variety of different themed rooms were so fun and well thought out with so many things in each room to do. Children as well as adults could be entertained for hours without leaving this house! The pool and hot tub were warm and there was patio furniture, pool toys, and a large outdoor table that you could dine at out by the pool, as well as the large kitchen table inside the house. We loved the open kitchen and living room. There is a really fun Harry Potter themed family room where you can watch movies that are provided in the house. The air conditioning in the house was a comfortable temperature. JanaLynn, the owner, was amazing to work with! She has thought of absolutely everything that we might possibly need on our vacation to make our stay comfortable and convenient from everything like dishes, cookware, fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher, washer and dryer, blow driers in each bathroom, portable cribs, strollers, beach towels, beach chairs, pool toys, pool and hot tub, videos for children and adults, children's games, dress ups for everyone to play in, and the list could go on and on. It was so fun to stay in a place that made you feel so much at home, and yet had a magical touch to it for children! It was so spacious and comfortable. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to others!!!
“Our Own Magic Kingdom”
Great place to stay!! We had 6 adults and 6 kids which was just the right amount of people. Everyone had their little private area for away time. The hang out spot for the kids was the Harry Potter theater room! As soon as the kids came back to the house, the girls put on one of a multitude of dresses and the boys played video games or they all watched movies. Everyone loved the pool and having chill out days without going to any parks was awesome. No crowds! The house had everything you could imagine for kids and adults. Plenty of dishes, cookware, games, toys. You name it, it was there. Pool guy put a bit too much chlorine in the hot tub but other than that, the house was great. Way better than staying in any of the resorts. We would highly recommend staying at Happily Ever After. Close to the parks and grocery stores. Everything from outlet malls to Medieval Times was withing 30 minutes of the house. Great communication with JanaLynn.
Owner's reply: Thank you for your great comments, and I do hope you stay again! I let pool guy know we had too much chemical in the hot tub, and I checked the pool and hot tub daily for two weeks to make sure it is just right, again. And we agree, WAY BETTER THAN STAYING AT THE RESORTS! It's a nice break from the crowds at Disney to come home to your own luxury playplace... See you again soon!
“5 Star Orlando Vacation Rental.”
This was the most fun our family has ever had on vacation! When we first saw the photos of this magical home we thought that it would be much more fun for our family to stay here than at a Walt Disney resort. Our original plan was to stay at The Dolphin resort in Walt Disney World - i've stayed at themed resorts yet Happily Ever After is as magical as any world class resort- and so nice to have plenty of room for napping toddlers and energetic youth at the same time. The home is beautifully staged- every detail really captures your children's imagination enthraling them. As a parent I never felt like it was so pretentious that I couldn't kick back and relax making myself at home. The villa was impeccably clean. I could tell that the housekeeping was immaculate. I knew every single toilet had been scrubbed everything was just cleaned so well. The location is perfect, it's situated in a beautiful little neighborhood of manicured lawns and little pool houses. I felt like I could go next-door and say hi to a neighbor it was very quaint and safe feeling. We were amazed at how easily we could get to and from the grocery store it took less than 3 1/2 minutes when we timed it. And from doorstep to parking lot of Disney World was anywhere from 19 minutes to 23 minutes. So fast! I swear when you stay on site at Walt Disney World resort it takes you that long to get through your massive hotel and onto the Monorail. Convenience wise 5 stars!! The home was fully stocked with everything you would need to bake or cook for a large family. They had a porta crib they had strollers they even had boogie boards out by the pool! The costumes and dress up were seemingly endless! I felt that everything was in very good condition yet not so pristine that I wasn't comfortable allowing my children to play with the toys it was the perfect balance. The beds were wonderful as well. I detest a saggy bed these beds were expensive mattresses with a luxury memory foam topper. If you prefer a harder mattress the foam wasn't attached to the mattress its in its own encasing- brilliant!!!! One could easily roll off the memory foam layer if you have a bad back. I can't tell you how well we slept it was amazing! It was spectacular to have a beautiful home to retreat back to after a long day at the resorts!!! 5 stars!

We loved watching Harry Potter in the beautiful entertainment room at night after a long day of Harry Potter World! Five Stars!
Owner's reply: Thank you for reviewing, and I am privileged to have hosted you for your funnest family vacation ever!!! What an honor, and I thank you for your kind words, and detailed descriptions. Next time you go, I'll tell you the quickest way to get to Disney parks--I think you may have taken the GPS route instead??? Yes, this house is made for play, so I'm glad it sounds like you used it that way! Playing Narnia sword fights, Harry Potter magical wand play, and Elsa's Frozen ice powers-- love it!
“Perfect..Awesome...Adventure!! Loved this House!!”
This house was legit! Every room was different and the owner really took her time to create a "moment" in every room! It really put the icing on the top of our Florida trip! The owner was very accommodating and the house had everything we could possibly need. Our kids had the best time in each room and we had ages ranging from 11-21. The adults found peace in the suites but when we all wanted to get together we would meet up in the pool or Harry Potter room! The house was comfortable that it was hard to leave it every day to go visit the park each day. This was just the best house!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review!!! The housekeepers said you left the house in fantastic condition, which we very much appreciate. Hope we get to host you again, either at this or our other villa (Come back when Star Wars Land is finished at Disney World, and use the Star Wars Home Theater at the other property!!!)
“Great Location for a Family Getaway”
We had a blast! Our boys had so much fun! They enjoyed the themed rooms, the toys, the dress-up clothes and accessories. We enjoyed swimming in the pool everyday. The weather was gorgeous. The entertainment room was a treat for our boys, from watching movies to playing Wii games. We were impressed with the details of every room in the home. Wow! The kitchen was very practical, as we did not have to eat out every night. The bedrooms were comfortable. The bathrooms were well equipped. We just loved everything about the home. Thank you for making our family trip memorable!
“"Viva la Familia"”
I have nothing but amazing thing to say about this home. And the owner Janna Lynn its very friendly and courteous. Absolutely every period and comma that is writing above on her description of the house its true. Honestly i was not expecting to find the house beyond gorgeous and clean like we did. We had rent a lot of places before but nothing compared to "Happily ever after" I wanted to say more but the reviews below just say it all. if you rent this home you won't be disappointed. We want to do it again and again! Thank you Janna Lynn to give use the best vacations we ever had! See you very soon! :))
Owner's reply: Thank you for your fantastic care of the villa, and thank you for your review! We are honored to host you again!
“BEST VACATION HOME EVER!!!”
I absolutely love this home. It is so spacious, has everything you need or want. There is so much to do that you will never be bored. I stayed in the master bedroom and it was absolutely fantastic. The bed was very comfortable and very spacious. The owner takes really good care of the house and keeps it up to date. The Harry Potter room was so much fun, movies galore, plenty of 3D glasses for the whole family and so many fun games for all ages. Every room of the house has so much detail. I can tell the owner has taken many many hours of decorating and planning. If you are looking for a home that will be fun for any age, look no further! I would have loved to play in the house for an entire week! Looking forward to staying again!
Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, and especially for leaving the villa even better than you found it!!! We have spent many hours to ensure every stay at this home is absolutely magical and that the villa is always found in perfect working order! Please do come again!!!
Owner Supplied Testimonials
From: "LittleJo" Florida. Stayed December 2014:
We are DVC members and have rented several vacation homes in the past .... so we are familiar with good quality rentals. Happily Ever After was the BEST, EVER, better than Disney vacation rental. Comfortable beds, plenty of room, perfect floor plan, and the best themed decor. We stayed with our four adult children, their spouses, 6 grandchildren, my brother and my handicapped mother ... total of 18 ... very comfortable and accommodating.
It was so nice that everyone wanted to stay at "Happily Ever After" instead of going to the parks.
The owner, Janna Lynn, was very nice .... the home was clean and better than I could have imagined .... and the whole rental process was a breeze.
Thank you Janna Lynn for the best family holiday ever!!!
From: "3KidsinTow" New York. Stayed December 2014:
The villa was AMAZING! Our kids couldn't wait to come back from the parks and didn't want to leave, and frankly, neither did we. All the comforts of home and then some, the villa is fully equipped with everything you can think of. So much thought, attention and detail put into making it a fantasy home for the children and their families - the sheer amount and quality of toys and costumes was incredible and the kids were on cloud 9. Couldn't speak highly enough of the property and the owners who were a true pleasure to deal with. This is the one! We hope to come back in the future! We give it 10 stars (out of 5)!
From: "Jennifer" North Carolina. Stayed November 2014:
This place is amazing! When we first got in we took our boys to the Nemo/ Little Mermaid room and were all in awe (adults included). It really felt like we were under water. The details are amazing! I must admit I was a little jealous of our boys because I kind of wanted to stay there, until I got to our bedroom. The sheets and bed were so soft. It felt like a high end hotel with the luxery of having our kids stay in another bedroom. We stayed in the large master that also had a walk in closet perfect for our baby. She was still in our room, but we were able to close the door to watch tv or use the bathroom without waking her up. During the daytime we were able to travel to the parks easily. Disneyworld is just a few miles away and Seaworld is at most 18-20 minutes. On the days we didn't feel like going to the parks our kids were more than happy to stay at the villa and play! I think they may have even enjoyed those days more. The boys would have sword fights in the Narnia room or hide out in the cool little secret passageway inside. My nieces especially loved to dress up as Elsa and Anna in the Frozen room, or play with all the mermaid stuff in the Nemo room. Both the boys and the girls Loved the tiki bed in the Nemo room and would play in the hut for hours. They also loved the Star Wars area and toys. Throughout the house there are so many toys and dress ups that they never got bored. I must admit I loved this not only because my kids were having so much fun, but because they were so entertained I felt like I really got to catch up with my family who live far way from us. We all loved the pool! It's kept so warm that even on the days it was cold we still had a blast swimming. At night it was fun to be able to put the kids in bed and the adults would relax in the hot tub and watch a 3D movie in the Harry Potter game room. This was probably my favorite room! Again, the detail put into making it look like Harry Potter is incredible! The kids also loved this room because it has a pool table, video games, movies and more toys! All in all the house exceeded all our expectations! We were so amazed by this place that when the trip was over we called my in-laws and convinced them to have our next family vacation here. We are excited to go back in a year. It's perfect for family reunions. This villa captures the magic of Disneyworld and Universal Studios! When you travel to the parks in the day you can bring the magic home at night!
From: "Manta Conquerors" England. Stayed August 2014:
My family which included kids and grandparents had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful villa for 2 weeks in August/September 2014. We found the villa to be totally fabulous... It was beautifully furnished with brand new equipment/appliances and the attention to detail with the themed rooms was amazing. I can honestly say we have never stayed in such a beautiful villa before ... The bedrooms are just lovely - the hardest decision was deciding which room to sleep in ! My daughter absolutely loved the Frozen bedroom... the 4 poster bed was soooo comfy as were all the other beds ... Personally, the Nemo bedroom was my favourite - it was so cute and again the thought and effort which had gone into creating such a beautiful room was incredible... The Harry Potter games room was in my 9 year old son's words 'just magical' ... He spent all his time in there and never wanted to leave ... The cleanliness of the pool area was excellent and the owner had arranged for it to be regularly checked so there was no worry regarding the chemical levels. The actual location of the villa was also excellent with the nearest parks being Animal Kingdom and Typhoon Lagoon which are about a 6-7 minute drive away. I cannot stress enough the amount of care and attention that has gone into designing such a luxury villa for families to stay - it is truly amazing and we highly recommend this property...
From: "KS" New York. Stayed August 2015:
Thank you so much for providing us with such a wonderful vacation home! My family loved your house more than I can express! The kids had so much fun playing with the toys and dress up clothes and board games. They loved swimming in the pool and they ADORED the Harry Potter room!! We spent far more time in the house and in the pool than we ever have before (which I actually enjoyed better than spending day after day in the parks because we got to have a lot of good family time). All of that to say: thank you for designing a house that takes into account the needs of kids of all ages (my youngest nephew was 5 months old and my dad is almost 70!) and we all had a blast, including my 13-year-old nephew who couldn't get enough of the Star Wars loft, Harry Potter room, pool, and hot tub! Thank you, thank you, thank you! Their excitement, fun, and joy are truly priceless to me!
One last thing: we would love to return next summer. How far in advance should I look into reserving your place? (If you still have availability?) [PERSONAL DETAILS WITHHELD] I know that it's almost a year away but I just wanted to communicate that we would very much like to return! My 5-year-old niece actually cried when we left the house because she was so sad to say goodbye to the Frozen room and the pool, and of course, our vacation.
Thank you so much for everything, [NAME WITHHELD]

What a GREAT Addition to a Magical Vacation!
We booked this vacation home, because it looked like the BEST place for our two young children (4 and 2) and our niece and nephew (8 and 3), we thought they would LOVE it and would top off this MAGICAL vacation just perfect. It matched and exceeded our expectations!!!! The kids LOVED every minute in this house and spent every waking minute discovering and playing in every room. The house was perfect - even with their age differences. Just the love our children had would be enough for us to want to stay in the property again, but the care, space, amenities and cleanliness of the house and the response of the owner and property manager topped of the vacation rental and made it the perfect choice. I will definitely seek out any property owned by JanaLynn to book for our next Disney World vacation. The house was really clean and this is coming from a normally OCD clean freak. ;-). The amenities were great - we had EVERYTHING we needed for the kids (we didn't have to pack a pack-n-play!!!) and everything we needed in the kitchen which was soooo convenient. Any questions we had for the owner and property manager were immediately taken care of and everything noted as available in the rental was. Even with all those people and the different expanses of families we had, we always had our places to go, so we didn't feel on top of each other. I will have to say, the Harry Potter room was my FAVORITE - the selection of movies and capability to relax while the kids are asleep and watch a grown up movie was an added bonus to this working mommy's vacation. Overall this was a 5 STAR EXCELLENT experience!!! We would recommend this property and any property owned and operated by JanaLynn. We hope to do business again!!!
Chris M. (Ontario, Canada) 11/17/15
Our stay at this home was fantastic. There was only six of us (3 adults, 3 little boys) and although the house had way more bedrooms than we needed it turned out to be just the right amount as each boy had their own themed room and managed to play in every room and have so much fun. The Harry Potter play room was fantastic the kids enjoyed not only playing in the room with the toys provided but watching the big screen TV for movie night was so much fun with the lights off and the magic candles lit and the wall sconces turned on. Was quite the ambiance. The giant OLAF was a real hit and got lots of hugs and what little boy doesn't like a light saber to play with. The wardrobe entrance through the Narnia adult room to the castle room was well used by everyone. Yes adults too! The kitchen was fully stocked for all your cooking needs (minus the food of course) and having two fridges was fantastic considering how hot it was outside it was nice to have a fridge just filled with water, juice and pop while leaving the main fridge in the kitchen for the regular essentials. The pool was the perfect size for our group and the perfect depth as the boys were all young and put to good use the life jackets provided and the toys. Maybe a few to many chairs around the pool making it difficult to move around while playing with the kids but otherwise it was perfect. The best part was how close we were to Disney and the other attractions. Even the drive to Kennedy Space Centre wasn't that far. Would definitely stay at this house again as pretty much everything you could want or need is either there already or easily accessible with the near by stores, restaurants and grocery stores Would highly recommend staying at this house if your looking for a fun and exciting house (and clean) for the little kids to enjoy, oh and the big kids too.
