Close to all of the theme parks and shopping

Posted 10-Feb-2016
Pros: Close to attractions.
Cons: When we got there there were 3 people trying to check in and only one of the employees there was checking people in.
Location: close to Universal and Disney. Also close to a Nike clearance and Converse Outlet store.
Nice townhouse with lots of space. Washer and Dryer too. close to theme parks, restaurants and shopping. This is our 3rd year staying with Magical Memories and we will stay there again.

Dated amenities, for example the bedclothes were worn and very old, the tv sound and picture quality was unwatchable, and the appliances (dishwasher and washer) sounded like jet engines. Cockroaches sighted in the bathroom. On the positive side - The staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was close to all attractions.

Great apartment/villa, but not where we expected

Posted 03-Feb-2016
Pros: Staff was helpful, villa/apartment was clean and well-equipped.
Cons: I wish they had let me know in advance that our accommodation was at a different location than their office.
Location: Near Disney World and easy access to major routes to Universal and the airport. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.
The apartment/villa was really nice, clean and well equipped. The only problem we had was that we expected it to be at the same location as the Magical Memories office and it was 19 miles away - this was a problem as we had an early AM flight home and had to drive back to the office to turn in our keys before leaving for the airport (added a half-hour to travel time to return our rental car and catch our flight). Other than the location being unexpected (still near DisneyWorld), this is a highly recommended place to stay.

My review and considerations must know!!!!

Posted 31-Jan-2016
Pros: Location, accommodation, infraestructure
Cons: Take out the fee of handling packages that we buy on internet!!! it is not polite!
Location: Near outlets, parks, cvs, wallmart, public, ihop, etc etc etc. Short driving time to those places....
This is a great villa, location, confort, room...Must know!!!: they charge $140 for room cleaning (done when you leave, not when present) and other charges, expedia must correct that when offering this villa. Dont buy stuff on internet, there´s a fee $5 and it is delivered to you next day so if you are in a hurry, forget the package. My experience with this hotel was very great, the location to parks (disneys, universal), wallmart, publics, cvs, Green garden, ihop and outlets (vineland, florida, international...), is very very great. The longest drive is 20 min to an outlet; nearest one is 7 minutes. To parks is 10 to 15 minutes. The villa has a huge parking, the rooms are very big. You definetivily may acoomodate 8 persons on a villa. It has kitchen, fridge, its own loundry, table, 1 master room (very big by the way) and 2 rooms with 2 beds (queen size and single). Overall, very recommended, just keep in mind my first sentence!!!! Consider the fees.

Excellent gated community close to Disney

Posted 29-Jan-2016
Pros: It was very roomy, nicely decorated and very clean.
Cons: They don't allow you to turn the air conditioning down below 70. We requested a queen bed in the 2nd bedroom and we got 2 twin beds.
Location: Close to Disney parks, restaurants and stores.
The 3 bedroom villa was a great place to stay. It was big and clean.

Thanksgiving week Disney trip

Posted 27-Jan-2016
Pros: plenty of room for 7 Washer and dryer Full kitchen 2 bathrooms Quiet area Close enough to parks and shopping Cons: hall toilet had a few issues Bedspreads were visibly dirty Carpet was old and worn Office was 20 minutes from the actual place we stayed $90 cleaning fee and $25 breakage deposit, if you are going to charge a $90 cleaning fee then have clean bedspreads at least instead of yucky stained ones!

We stayed in one bedroom villa at runaway beach. Villa is 10-20 minutes to universal and disney. Some negative reviews I read had me concerned about the stay. The villa met my expectation for the price. It was clean. I would visit again.

disappointed

Posted 25-Jan-2016
Pros: location was the only redeeming factor -however, the hotel staff could not provide instructions on what was close.
Cons: maintenance and accommodations. A little attention would go a long way!
Location: close to restaurants, shopping, Disney parks, zoo, parks, mini golf, etc.
• Kitchen was very limited and the stove only had one burner that worked • Pull out sofa bed was nothing less than SCARY and gross • Many light bulbs burnt out • Bathroom toilet set broke and dangerous • Bedding old, tattered, and icky • Carpets horrible and gross • Kitchen table chairs broke • Back deck worn out and dangerous – table and chairs horrible • Huge water stains on the ceiling – (mold?) • In general – Very dated, worn out, broke, and gross

Great, but watch out for hidden fees!

Posted 21-Jan-2016
Pros: Lovely. Home away from home. 2 bathrooms, full kitchen.
Cons: The hidden fees.
Location: Close to Disney, entertainment, shopping.
Loved Magical Villas! Fabulous, comfortable and convenient. Did NOT like the $140 of extra fees upon check-in that were not clearly advertised on Expedia. $85 cleaning fee etc. Very inconvenient when you have a set budget for your trip.
