My family stayed in Mickey's Crib for three weeks, and what a great experience it was! The conservation area to the back is really something! It brings all the wildlife so close to you! We enjoyed watching our 'resident Hawk' who perched in the nearby palm tree at least three times a day, every day that we were there. Along with three, very tuneful, red birds (can't remember their name), but they were beatiful.
In short, we have holidayed in Orlando 14 times now and have never got bored of the place. You can do as much or as little as you like, and this villa compliments that perfectly. If you want to go the parks, they are really close by. For example, it took us 8 minutes to get from Disney's Magic Kingdom carpark to the villa! It was surprisingly close. Every other park is within 20/25 minutes (ie universal, seaworld etc) Being so close means you can go to the parks early, return mid afternoon, when the it is at it's hottest, for a dip in the pool and some food, then return for the evening. It's that close!!!
The management company were excellent, they answered some questions for us, due to our naivity, and were only too happy to help!
In conclusion, if you are looking for a family villa, with a lovely surrounding, close to the all the parks..........look no further, this one fits the bill!
Almost forgot, you can see Disney's magic Kingdom fireworks from the pool deck which was a great bonus.
Looking forward to re-booking in 2014 already.
