We stayed in this wonderful villa, it was perfect. It was a five minute drive to Disney World so was really quick to get to all of the parks and being in a villa rather than hotel room meant that it gave Dylan a lot of space to roam and relax in and space for everyone to get time away from everyone.
There was also a swimming pool which was great. Amellia has always loved going swimming so I knew she would think it was incredible having one right there that she could go in whenever we were home, but Dylan hadn’t ever been to the swimming pool before so I wasn’t really sure what he would think. It took us a long time to get him used to the bath so I hadn’t wanted to push it further with water, especially considering that swimming pools are always busy and full of lots of different noises.
We put his swimming trunks on and some arm bands and thought lets give this a shot, and he had an absolute blast. After being very cautious at the start and clinging to me he started to realise how fun it was jumping in off the side and splashing around. He also found it really funny to watch his sister jumping in off the side, she has no fear so was flinging herself off the side while singing and then coming back up and going and doing it over again. After seeing how much Amellia enjoyed being in the pool we are now going to get her some swimming lessons because she will really enjoy them, and I’m going to make an effort to take Dylan to the swimming pool to see what he makes of it. Seeing as he enjoys the water and it wont be all a new experience it will just be to see how he copes with all the noises and other people.
Everyone slept well and adapted to the different time zone really well. Having the villa made it a lot more relaxed when we had got home from the parks. It meant my mum and dad could get some peace while the kids got dinner and wound down for bed time and that the kids then had a lot of space to run about in in the mornings.
It was perfect and I would recommend a villa over a hotel room, having the space, buying your own food, quiet little swimming pool, it just worked out wonderfully especially that it was literally only a 5 minute drive to the parks as well, Kissimmee is perfect place for a villa.
