About Anita and Darren Lawrence

We are a family with two children, now ages 19 and 14. We first discovered Disney when our oldest was only 3 years old, and will never forget the look on her face when she saw Tinkerbell 'flying' out of the Magic Kingdom Castle. We returned to Florida many times after that and eventually bought a home in Windsor Palms, a vacation home for ourselves, an investment for our children, and hopefully, a magical place for other families to share. We have worked extensively with children over the years and feel we have a good understanding of individual children's needs, as well as being able to understand what it is like for parents taking children on vacation. Our children today are still avid Disney fans and some of our most precious memories as a family were made in Florida. We love to help others and hope to ensure that every single guest we welcome to our home has the happiest vacation ever, and that the children, our most valued guests, enjoy some amazing adventures and make some magical memories that last forever.

Why Anita and Darren Lawrence chose Disney / Orlando

Whilst we do not have a magic wand, we have tried to make our villa something that all the family can enjoy. Having spent time in other resorts (including Disney) and hotels, we often found the accommodation disappointing, especially for children. We wanted a home that went beyond the basics, somewhere that could combine entertainment and fun with comfort and relaxation. So we provided touches of luxury such as embroidered bathrobes and slippers for adults, free pool heat so the hot tub and pool could be enjoyed, bathroom packs and kitchen packs to make that first night easier, and complimentary soft drinks on arrival to welcome guests after their journey. We themed the rooms and bedding, knowing that children have their own favorite characters, we provided a choice of character bedding to suit everyone. We wanted those with young children not to have to pack too much, so we provide equipment for babies such as strollers, highchairs, travel cribs and a baby walker. Teens are also catered for with consoles such as a Wii U, PS4 and games, with TVs, DVD, and consoles in bedrooms. We also have a range of books, board games and toys for all the family. We tailor make kids packs ourselves as an extra surprise for children, and our dress up closet is a popular addition. We love our villa, and genuinely want all our guests to share what we have. We can genuinely say that we plough every cent made back into maintaining and updating our home, so that each year it becomes just a little more 'magical'. With back-to-back bookings advance booking is highly recommended, but once you have visited Mickey's Magical Manor, we hope you will return time and time again.

What makes this villa unique

FREE Pool Heat - unlike most villas, we offer a heated pool at no additional cost if you require it all year round

FREE bathroom packs (one per bathroom)

FREE welcome pack (contents a surprise!)

INCLUDED Luxury embroidered towels, facecloths, slippers and robes (x4)

Choice of children's themed bedding

INCLUDED: All departure cleaning costs

INCLUDED: Local and state taxes

We also provide 2 hair dryers, straighteners, BBQ grill accessories and many other household items for your use

We care very much about our guests, and want you to have the best vacation experience possible. That is why every spare cent made from bookings goes back into updating, maintaining and making our home even more magical for guests, so after the parks you can bring a little piece of the magic home with you, and return home with memories to treasure forever.

We recently spent a week in your home and had a wonderful stay. The house was great and close to restaurants and attractions. The kids loved having a pool all to themselves whenever they wanted to swim. We would definitely stay again!

Perfect for Disney

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a week mid-july. The temperature was around 100 almost every day.We enjoyed the pool very very much (it is perfect for children and adults). The house location is perfect for Disney (around 15 minutes). Our daughter loved getting dress as a different princess every day.

The owners were quick to answer our questions.

I would recommend this house for families wanting to visit Disney.

Thank you Anita & Darren .

Absolutely wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

If this home is available during your planned vacation dates, definitely book here! I have stayed in multiple vacation homes during past trips to Disney, and this one was far and away the best one. They have everything you could possibly need plus some, in abundance. I packed multiple items I felt we needed based on past trips, and found that this home already had it all! (Misting fan for example, and we were very thankful for the strollers available so we did not have to bring our stroller or rent one of the generic Pirates of the Caribbean boat sized Disney strollers that get lost in stroller parking.)

It truly felt as if you are planted right in the middle of someone's primary residence instead of the more sterile feel of some rental properties. We also greatly appreciated the surprises left for our kids.

The home is spacious, and is outfitted with Disney touches everywhere. The beds and linens were very comfortable (which is a huge sell in and of itself), and served as a welcome oasis after the craziness of the parks. It is a very easy and quick drive to Disney, and is close to Irlo Bronson which has a bit of everything. The community it is in is gated, very quiet and well-maintained, and my family loved the pool and the pool toys. I will 100% be crossing fingers that this home is available the next time we journey to Disney World.

Book this house, you will not be disappointed!

A Magical Stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you are reading all the reviews (like I did before the trip) go right ahead and book this property now! You will not be disappointed. It is exactly as described on the website. We found the rental clean, well equipped and the owners are wonderful. The pool was warm like bath water and had a privacy hedge all the way around. My son loved playing in the games room and with the toys (and it was wonderful to have stuff there to keep him busy). Lots of included items for kids. We had groceries delivered from Publix (in order to save time on our first day) and that worked out well for us. The rental is in a great location for Disney (about a 15 minute drive) and lots of stores and restaurants nearby on 192. Right at the end of the street at 192 there is a Walgreens, Outback, Red Lobster, Cracker Barrel, liquor store and other nearby places to the left on 192 include an Olive Garden, Chick Fil A, Dollar Tree ,Target and Publix. It was nice that we could pick up Outback and Olive Garden To Go on the way home from the park when we didn't feel like cooking. For the most part it was quiet at night, a few nights I did hear some people outside at their pools (luck of the draw who the other renters are). The house felt very safe and secure (it is in a gated community). We never made it to the clubhouse to use any of the amenities but it looked nice. Our only complaint was the king bed was a bit too firm for us (but we have an expensive memory foam mattress at home) but the beds were comparable to other rentals we have stayed in. The queen bed was comfortable. Plenty of towels and linens available. Loved the thick comfy bathrobe when getting out of the pool. The included slippers are very thin (use only when getting out of the shower, not for walking around the house). The kitchen was well stocked and had everything that we needed. The owners are willing to accommodate any requests and do their best to make your stay magical. We hope to be able to stay here again.

A must stay for anyone looking to getaway to Florida! Disney or no Disney!

  • 5 of 5

From the first interaction with the owners, to the moment we arrived. We had been anticipating this getaway for months. After reading the plethora of amazing and informative reviews, we decided on Mickey's Magical Manor for our First Family Vacation. Travelling from SW Ontario (Canada) with my Wife, our 4 Kids and Gramma, we arrived to a fridge drawer with chilled refreshments. At which point we decided to go room to room together to see what would be "home" for the next week. Every room was just as it is pictured. The kids loved their themed rooms and Gramma also loved having her own space, not far from the bathroom. When we all entered the Master Bedroom to a wrapped gift for the entire family, we were speechless.

This home is perfect for a large family or two smaller ones. It was amazing to be able to walk into this house and immediately feel at home. WE DIDN'T HAVE TO BRING ANYTHING FOR OUR BABY. You have no idea how amazing that is. It was more than we expected and we are already looking into booking our next trip. We will also be recommending it to everyone we know.

If you are looking for an amazing place to stay while in Kissimmee (Orlando). Look no further!!!
