All accommodations have gourmet kitchens, private spa pools, and immersive bedrooms (there are 26 options!) for children—think Enchanted Castles, a Gamer’s Paradise, and a Wizarding WonderLand. These extraordinary rooms are designed by local fabricator and sister company, Immersive Scenic Studios.

The Gamer’s Paradise will be PERFECT for families that are excited about Super Nintendo World coming to Epic Universe!

As part of a phased opening, Villatel Orlando Resort will add to its collection of one-to-three-bedroom apartments later this year.

A central, resort-style pool, lazy river, four waterslides, sports courts (including basketball and pickleball), fitness center, golf simulator, and a bar and grill for poolside dining is coming late 2024.

Morlando Space Mansion

1228 Grand Traverse, Kissimmee, FL
Located within Reunion Resort near Walt Disney World

This incredible mansion is top tier and the rate per night reflects that. Still, it’s fun to imagine the possibilities. The Morlando Space Mansion is massive and mind-blowing, and even if it is out of your price range you can explore other Jeeves properties.

Walking into the Morlando Space Mansion is welcoming despite its massive size. The living space, kitchen and pool deck immediately greet you as you walk in. Right next to the open and massive kitchen awaits a three-story kids’ suite. It is unreal!

Besides the kids’ suite which has two bunk-bed style sleeping areas, there are 10 en-suite bedrooms. That means there are ten bedrooms each with their own bathroom. Each one is exquisitely decorated and appointed.

This unprecedented three-story, 2600 sq ft kids’ room resembles a spaceship and lander, complete with two bunk areas—housing 10 and 8 bunks respectively—equipped with expansive dorm-style bathrooms. You and the kids (or just the kids) can embark on a special mission with laser-tag style toys and an interactive mission control room.

But wait, more fun awaits for everyone at the Oasis pool with 2 slides, 2 spas and a grotto, plus a 2 lane bowling alley with full arcade, and a bar area with games! There’s even a mini-golf hole just outside the game room. And a cinematic experience awaits in the home theater seating 18 people.

The Morlando Space Mansion sleeps over 20 people with 12 total bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. So you can easily share with family or friends, and perhaps divide up the nightly rate.

Cool, Out-of-This World Dual Theme 

Airbnb in Kissimmee
