Heading to Orlando, Florida, for a vacation filled with Disney charm and Universal magic? The fun doesn’t have to stop when you wave goodbye to the parks for the day. What better way to round off your trip than falling asleep in Cinderella’s castle, cooking up dinner in a Mickey Mouse-themed diner or battling your friends in a laser-filled game room with life-size Star Wars characters? These seriously cool themed vacation rentals add an extra touch of magic for both children and adults.
Blue, red, orange, yellow and green: just some of the colorful themes you’ll spot at this eight-bedroom themed mansion in Four Corners. This is an Airbnb especially favored by children, thanks to the fairytale-esque bedrooms with flowers trailing down from the ceiling and princess-like drapes over each of the beds. But it’s not just a place for fairytale lovers: other rooms come with castle themes, pop up indoor campsites and Harry Potter double beds. Adults rooms here are slightly less themed, but still come in vibrant shades. You’ll love the spacious swimming pool outside with plenty of room for relaxing during the daytime. And the theater room is the perfect location for watching Disney films after a day at the parks.
This Twelve Parsecs vacation home is more of an immersive experience than it is just a simple Airbnb. Themed rooms come to life here, with Star Wars décor taking the crown and space themes continuing in almost every room. Each section of this house comes with its own galaxy; hand-painted wall murals, 3D custom-molded planets and handmade beds, so even dreamtime is on-theme. Each of the five themed bedrooms is an adventure in itself, and you’ll end each day of your trip getting comfortable on a cloud, in a spaceship or something else equally as incredible. It’s got space for 16 guests across eight bedrooms, with slightly toned down options for adults. You also have complete access to the Champions Gate Oasis resort with its water park, two golf courses, splash pad, game room, theater and more.
This seven-bedroom Airbnb took it one step further when it came to crafting an authentic themed vacation rental: its owners even spoke to Disney experts (well, children) to figure out exactly what they’d like when it came to themed décor and magical characters.

The kitchen is kitted out in a Mickey Mouse diner style, with retro gadgets but all of the essentials. Watch TV surrounded by the Pirates of The Caribbean characters, or dig into dinner in the dining room with a backdrop of Beauty and The Beast.
