Our family of 18 decided to go to Orlando the week before Christmas, then go on a cruise after visiting Disney World. We stayed in ChampionsGate resort. It was magical. The resort was decorated in Christmas themes everywhere and had lots of Christmas activities for the kids.
When we got to the villa, there was a giant inflatable Christmas Olaf from Frozen on the front yard surrounded by Christmas lights. The kids were so excited. When we opened the door, a large decorated Christmas tree was in the living room with a toy train and track under it. It was really cute.
Having been at other houses in Orlando over the years, we appreciated the Christmas Merrytime theme that the villa and Championsgate does for visitors.
It made our visit really magical!
The house is excellent, it is big, lots of space, rooms and bathrooms. it is a little bit far from the parks. Definitely you need a car. If you have a large family it is a great option. We didnt have any problem until the end when we left. The property manager said we broke the dishwasher eventhough we didnt use it, it seems that they were trying to kkep some part of the deposit because they even claimed about a keyboard, bed sheet. At the end They charge us 180 usd beacuse we left some kitchenware on the sink in the kitchen. (We didnt leave them on the dishwasher because it was full when we arrived) and they said that it was the cost of the cleaning. For me it was absurd. I was going to book the house for the next holidays but now I am going to look for another option because Orlando is full of houses to rent for holidays.
We stayed at this home during Hurricane Irma and we never even lost power. Our entire family was able to evacuate Miami and this house made us feel safe.
My entire family stayed in this house, including my brother, all of his children, and grandparents. It was new and all beds and kitchen items were new. Everything in very good condition. House had a pool with a heater for pool and hot tub. It was a warm pool, even in December. The house had a movie room with a 8 foot wide TV screen.
There is also a large screened-in cover over the patio and pool. It keeps the mosquitoes out, which is very, very good.
