About Shannon Knight
My family loves to travel, especially to Disney! Our photo albums are full of Disney character autographs and great memories at all the theme parks. The character dinner in Animal Kingdom is a favorite with our three sons. All the boys have great memories of joining the Donald and Mickey parade of instruments! We now laugh about the time our youngest was afraid to get anyone's autograph and we marvel at the number of times we got to ride Goofy's Barnstormer in a row one evening. We think it was 30 or more times! Our last visit, we got to ride the new Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and eat at Be Our Guest. Both were wonderful and well worth the wait! The past few years, we have been staying in vacation homes instead of hotels and have had wonderful experiences all over the country. It's so great for everyone to have more space, a kitchen to prepare meals, and plenty of bathrooms! I am pleased to offer you a wonderful experience at 🔆 Shine Gathering House 🔆 ! Everyone will be comfortable and entertained. You will also have my five-star customer service before and during your stay. My reviews are testament to the high quality home, experience, and customer service you will receive before and during your stay at 🔆 Shine Gathering House 🔆 , or its sister property, 🔆 Sun Gathering House 🔆 , HomeAway #4370253.
Shannon Knight purchased this House in 2017
Why Shannon Knight chose Champions Gate
One trip to Disney included extended family, so we rented a vacation home for the week of Thanksgiving. Everybody had their own room and bathroom with plenty of places to hang out together or relax alone. It was such an enjoyable experience, that the idea was planted to find our own place near "The Most Magical Place on Earth." A few years later we found the perfect location in the short term rental community of Champions Gate we call, 🔆 Sun Gathering House 🔆 , and the next year we purchased 🔆 Shine Gathering House 🔆 , just 4 houses away.
What makes this House unique
🔆 Shine Gathering House 🔆 is an approximately 2 minute walk to The Oasis Club amenities that are included in your stay (lazy river, pool, tiki bar, restaurant, pool-side service, cabana rentals, daily kids activities, nightly adult activities, etc.) There is a bathroom for every bedroom! I have stocked the house with everything you might need for your stay to be as comfortable and as much like home as possible: high-end furnishings, beautiful accessories, cozy throw blankets, lots of pillows, super soft sheets, large bath towels, hand towels, and wash cloths, hair dryers, lighted make up mirrors, extra bed quilts/blankets, board games, family friendly movies, family friendly video games, kids' dining table for 4, table/counter seating for 12, oversized pool towels, Pack n Play cribs, high chairs, and BBQ grill. The house will entertain the whole family: 3 Xbox Ones, air hockey table, flat screen TVs in every bedroom and living area, Blu Ray Players, home theater with reclining leather seats, board games, kids activity table with books and chalkboard, heated pool/spa, outdoor seating for 16, theme kids bedrooms, and a kids teepee. I have loaded the house with basics that add up if you buy them yourself: sugar, salt, pepper, cooking seasonings, paper towels, disinfecting wipes, paper napkins, dish detergent, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, hand soap, toilet paper, quick cleaning supplies, and laundry detergent. The house is extra clean. In addition to cleaning every surface between guests and washing the sheets and towels, the duvet covers, pillow covers, and blankets are washed EVERY TIME. We have two sets of washers/dryers to make this possible. The linens never leave the home and intermingle with other laundry at a laundry service facility (Yuck!). Shine Gathering House is owner managed, so you have 24 hour/7 day a week access to me, the owner. I communicate with my guests before, during, and after your stay. Your wonderful experience is my priority!

Great house. Clean and upscale and no up charges for pool and hot tub heat. Good location is you want some quiet downtown after fighting the Disney crowds !
Hands down the best RENTAL EVER!
The Shine House was amazing!! It’s big, clean open and soo accommodating. She’s was the best host. We have a big family with a lot of little kids, all of the small touches like themed rooms with stuffed animals on the bed, a kids art corner, baby floats and even Disney water bottled fans made our experience very magical.
I highly recommend this home, just bring your clothing because Shine House provides a stress free relaxing place for a great Disney Experice.
Almost as fun as Disney itself!
We stayed at Champions Gate for our short trip to Disney World with a crew of nine including four kids (13, 7, 4 and 2). The kids enjoyed the house almost as much as Disney - they had a blast in the pool and the movie room, enjoyed playing with the Xboxes (plural!) and LOVED the Oasis Club where they spent time on the lazy river and splash pads. The adults appreciated the proximity to Disney (although beware of traffic - can be problematic during the day!) and found the facilities to be modern and comfortable. Would easily come back in the future - no question about it!
Going to Mickey’s House!
The best decision we have made when it comes to lodging for a trip to Disney World. Easy to book, exactly as advertised, beautiful home and lots of extras for our trip.
