Now, though, with the family’s hankering for an extended vacation, there’s no other lodging option that makes sense. “How can all 10 of us stay in hotel rooms for nine days?” your father-in-law, ever the honest one, posed recently.
And then there’s the issue of making it down to the free breakfast buffet every morning, which closes promptly at 9am. Some mornings you won’t help but sleep in–that’s what hoofing around Sea World will do to you.
This year, you’ll do each other favors and rent a roomy villa like the one pictured. The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in the Orange Tree community–a mere 10 minutes from Disney World and other theme parks–will have you moving at the leisurely pace that is mandated by summer vacations. In fact, your group may prefer it some days over fighting the lines at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Here, you’ll have your own …
pool with lanai to keep those pesky mosquitoes out
four bedrooms, including two en-suite bathrooms–ideal for two families
high chair, stroller and travel cot with linens
tot lot nearby with sand for soft landings
washer/dryer for post play dates and amusement park excursions
Still have reservations about staying in a vacation home? Well, you shouldn’t considering that the weekly rate is $1,057 in June.

Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
