Family and Kid Friendly Orlando Florida Vacation Villas
Make your Disney vacation a memorable trip by renting a family and kid-friendly Orlando Florida vacation villa. Renting a vacation villa that offers a lot of space and separate rooms for all the family members is a definite preference for families big and small. Staying in a real home with bedrooms, kitchen and a living room with big-screen TV is a favorite way to travel for millions of people all over the world. The ability to make meals in a fully equipped kitchen is a great advantage for parents who otherwise must drag their children to restaurants night after night. There's something very appealing about the ability to do BBQ in the backyard just like at home -- only in a really cool destination such as Kissimmee Florida. In addition, renting a villa allows families for more face-time with each other.
Best news yet is that renting a Florida vacation villa/home can be surprisingly affordable. With an array of beds, luxury linens, Florida villas can accommodate plenty of people. When the cost is divided among multiple families, it comes out less per square foot than multiple hotel rooms in addition to many other advantages of renting a vacation home instead of a hotel. You may want to factor in budget-friendly meals cooked in-house; free Wi-Fi; free local, long distance and international phone calls; DVDs and family games and the savings can really add up.
Renting a kid/family friendly vacation home must be thought through as there are some considerations that that could be important for families. We tried to list them below:
Safety is the number one consideration when the little ones are around. While parents are required to monitor kids for their safety at all times, the following are some of the safety features at our premium vacation homes with a private pool.
Pool fences provide a quick additional layer of security when the family congregates around the pool. These fences can be erected quickly when you are traveling with kids. Families without kids can remove it for an open view of the pool and spa area.
Pool door alarms provide a great first layer of security to alert parents if a child opens the doors leading to pool and spa area. Alarms are fitted in such a way that an adult must temporarily dis-arm the security while the pool doors are opened. If the doors are left open, a siren will alert the parents to close the door.
All* our villas are secured with burglar alarms and 24*7 monitored security systems for the peace and comfort of our guests. (* standard on all our six and seven bed Emerald Island Resort pool villas)
Have you ever wondered about the security while you are staying? Have you wondered who else might have the key for the villa beside the management company? Have you ever wondered when was the last time the lockbox/key code combinations were changed for a villa? Not anymore!! We have the state art lock systems installed at Simba's Magic, Disney Magic, Disney Magic II, Emerald Magic, Tropical Magic, Florida Magic and Mickey's Magic villas. These electronic locks operate on a time-sensitive code combination. We generate unique codes that work for your entire stay (and only for your stay). In terms of security what that means to you is that guests who stayed before you don't have access to the villa while you are staying. That is safety for us.
We as parents realize the importance of keeping kids occupied with adequate entertainment during those rainy days. With that in mind, we provide many entertainment options. Of course, parents can join too!
PS2/PS3 Console and games
We provide a PS2 console and games at our Mickey's Magic and Emerald Magic villas. We provide a PS3 console at our Tropical Magic villa.

Standard features of these games-rooms include a slate bed pool table, air-hockey table, table football, large flat screen TV and DVD players for the entire family. Tropical Magic villa has a game room and theater combination that will please the entire family.
TVs and DVD Players
Often a family, and especially multiple families, will want more than one TV. All our villas have TVs and DVD players in all bedrooms, living rooms, and game room. This allows for parents and kids pick channels/movies they choose to watch as opposed to fighting for a remote.
You don't have to pay for using our secure, wired/wireless (Wi-Fi) access. You can access our Wi-Fi while relaxing by the pool or in the comfort of the villa.
As parents, you do not have to worry about some of the facilities that you deserve at your vacation villa. Our villas are equipped with the following for the comfort of kids. Why haul them from home when we provide strollers, high chairs and baby safety gates at the villa?
