WELCOME TO CHARACTERS CORNER!
Welcome to our Beautiful Disney Vacation Home, located in the elegant gated community known as Formosa Gardens Estates. Our home is located only two and 1/2 miles from the main entrance to all of the Disney Parks! We are the original owners of this home having built it in 2002 and we make every effort to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We have gone to great lengths to take what is the existing luxury standard for vacation homes a step further. We are constantly in the process of updating and re-furnishing our home to keep things nice and new. Cleanliness is our FIRST priority. We understand that there is a lot of variation in standards with vacation homes and it is our goal to make sure you are happy with our home. We take a lot of pride in making sure your stay is magical! We are very fortunate to have a property manager who lives IN the neighborhood and who will be available in the event that you need any type of assistance or have any issues during your stay. Our property manager only manages a small number of homes and it is for this reason that she is able to take such good care of our home. We have been told by many guests (on several occasions) that our home is the cleanest that they have ever rented. :)
Our home offers the following features and amenities: A huge in-ground pool for you and your guests to enjoy, surrounded by a hot tub/spa and a Mickey Mouse kiddie pool which both have waterfalls into the large in-ground pool. The Mickey Mouse pool is 18 inches deep in the center and six inches deep in Mickey's ears. Our pool's deck/lounging area is extra large in order to accommodate a large group of people comfortably. This is sooo important! We find that most people spend most of their time at the pool! (Us included!) The pool area also contains a very nice outdoor dining area. Make special note of the size of our pool and deck as you will likely spend a lot of time there!
Our home is 3,100 square foot, (this does not include the game room!) It has six bedrooms, four bathrooms and is located on a very large and private lot. Three of the bedrooms are master suites (two kind and one queen), all with en-suite bathrooms (one with a Jacuzzi tub). There are additionally two twin bedrooms containing two twin beds in each of these themed rooms..one of themed rooms is our POOH room and the other is MICKEY AND MINNIE... and finally the newest bedroom added in April of 2011 is ROYALTY themed and this bedroom has a full sized bed. The Princess/Royalty bedroom can be accessed through the main master bedroom french doors or the french doors can be locked and there is a separate/private entrance to this room from the living room.
All of our furnishings are top of the line designer, name brand furnishings from companies such as Broyhill, Lexington, Hooker, and of course, the Disney Store! All of our bedrooms will offer a TV/DVD combination. The family room (which includes a leather sectional sleeper queen sofa ) will include a home theater surround sound system. An assortment of family-oriented DVDs will be provided. The bonus room/master suite (the only upstairs room) offers a king-size bed, along with an extra pull out sofa in the same room.
Our gourmet kitchen, with island and attached eat-in kitchen table area offers all of the comforts of home, and more!! There is a separate formal dining room area, along with a formal living room. Finally, the entire home is equipped with WIFI WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS. Our garage features a fantastic game room with air Hockey, a pool Table and foosball, and of course, there is a washer and dryer located on the first floor for your convenience.
Finally, we invite you inquire about a stay in our home. We are convinced that you will be so happy that you will want to return again and again. We have many guests who come back year after year!

About Heidi LaDuca

We have been traveling to Disney for many years and have lots of great suggestions for your trip. I am available to answer any questions you have and would love to rent our home to your family!
Heidi LaDuca purchased this house in 2002
Why Heidi LaDuca chose Formosa Gardens
We simply love Disney and the Orlando area in general! There is simply so much to do together as a family! I (Heidi) am a HUGE Disney fan... I love the parks, the water parks, the restaurants, the shopping.. I love that Disney magic. We also enjoy Universal/Sea World/Busch Gardens and going to our favorite beach, Clearwater Beach!
What makes this house unique
Our home is located only 2 and 1/2 miles from Disney's main gate, 15-20 minutes from Universal/Sea World/Aquatica, and an hour from Busch Gardens! We've done it all and we love it. After a busy day at the park, the kids love to hang out in their themed bedrooms, play in our game room, but most of all, swim, swim, swim! We designed our pool area with a very, very large deck area so there is room for everyone... and then some. I don't think you'll find a pool area like ours anywhere! Check out the photos of our Mickey Mouse kiddie pool... a hit for the little ones!
