The comforts of home don’t have to be sacrificed at the expense of a vacation. Stepping inside one of Magical Memories Villas’ condos—where you'll find a full kitchen, spacious bedrooms, and a separate living room—is like coming home at the end of a long day. The only difference is that here in central Florida, you've probably spent the day at Disney World or Universal Studios. That's probably the one feature of Magical Memories Villas that trumps them all—location. This Groupon lets you choose from 12 condo resorts in the greater Orlando area, all within minutes of the parks.
Each resort offers different amenities, which can include outdoor pools, game rooms, and tennis courts. The two-bedroom, two-bath condos at Laguna Bay feature spacious areas adorned with cottage furnishings and soothing white décor. With plush sofas, floral art, and cable TV, the carpeted living room makes a perfect gathering space for family movie nights and Beethoven karaoke. An outdoor pool and an indoor spa offer plenty of diversion after you've bid adieu to Mickey and Pluto.
Kissimmee, Florida: Abundant Theme Parks near Florida Wetlands
Less than 10 miles from Magical Memories Villas, Walt Disney's whimsical empire enchants guests of all ages with four theme parks and two water parks. The newest addition is Animal Kingdom, where you can experience an African safari and observe the courtship rituals of Tigger in his natural habitat. Epcot appeals to a grownups via its World Showcase—a collection of shops, exhibits, and restaurants celebrating the cultures of 11 countries, including Japan, France, Morocco, and Norway.
To take a break from the Mouse, go on a tour through the Kissimmee swamps (located within a half-hour drive of the condos) for an up-close look at central Florida's beautiful wetland ecosystem. During excursions aboard high-speed airboats, passengers observe endangered swamp species, such as the whooping crane, the snail kite, and the tuxedoed alligator, while learning about the complex habitat.
