Take a journey into the deep blue sea to hang out with the Little Mermaid and friends at this Kissimmee-based Ocean House. This huge Airbnb is home to eight bedrooms with space for up to 16 guests and features a water theme from top to bottom. Wander around this house and discover unique touches in every room: floors patterned with sea creatures, vibrant bedrooms with Disney décor and bright blue tones throughout. Chandeliers in the common areas add a touch of luxe to the Ocean House and the extensive amenities just add to that appeal. Check in here to enjoy the private swimming pool and hot tub, or kick back and watch a movie in the on-site cinema, or play until your heart’s content in the game room. There’s also access to all of the facilities inside the Lake Resort, including water slides and splashing areas, a state-of-the-art fitness center with outdoor fitness lawn, a basketball court, beach volleyball court and even a full-size football field.
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.
There are some themed Orlando Airbnbs that stick to one Disney theme. And then there are others that like to sample a little of everything: enter, this nine-bedroom Lakeview Villa, which comes with Transformers, Dalmatians, Beauty and the Beast, Mickey and Minnie, and Pirates of Caribbean luxury themed suites. Wandering around this incredible Airbnb is a real experience, and that’s before you’ve even checked out the private screened lanai, swimming pool, spa, firepit, movie theater and games room. The kitchen is fully stocked with dinnerware, glasses and silverware enough for up to 20 guests, and you’ll admire a serene lake view from the backyard. There’s also a BBQ grill to enjoy a feast by the pool.
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. This spot is perfect for large family gatherings, where children — or adults who got stuck in Neverland — can dream of Harry Potter admissions letters before bed, transport themselves into an icy wonderland with Frozen décor, or fight the forces of evil in dreamland. 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. Of course, there’s a huge pool outside and close proximity to all of the best parks, too.
This six-bedroom Vrbo is only five minutes from Walt Disney World and is fit for a queen (or a princess) with its pastel pink décor and gold-edged beds.

A Star Wars themed living room is home to yet more larger-than-life characters, along with cozy throws and soft touches to make this house a proper home. It’s also got an outdoor pool, dressing up cupboard, toy room, large kitchen and dining room. It’s a wonderful spot for any Disney-loving kid.
Everyone’s favorite castle comes to life at this five-bedroom wizarding home. Taking Harry Potter inspiration and injecting it into every single part of this rental, this Kissimmee-based Airbnb will have you feeling like you received your admissions letter after all, just maybe a few years later than planned. Here, you’ll eat breakfast surrounded by spooky castle walls, hang your coats up among house scarves, watch TV with a backdrop of Hogwarts’ alumni and go to sleep tucked up in four-poster beds with emblems dotted throughout. You’ll spot house colors in each room — the only thing missing is an owl or two. The only part of this rental that isn’t overly themed is the outdoor pool, reminding you that you’re only 10 minutes away from the rest of the theme park action.
Not every themed house in Orlando has to come giant-sized. This budget-friendly, three-bedroom Princess Crownhouse is beautiful and cozy, located a mere two traffic lights away from Walt Disney World and home to everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The princess room here is the real star of the show, kitted out with “the princess will go to the ball” style beds and a baby chandelier.

The bathroom comes with its own Disney princess shower curtain, while the main living area is laid back and suitable for all. Adults and kids have their own tables for dinner, and there’s a big swimming pool outside for everyone to enjoy.

Set inside Reunion Resort and only six miles from Disney parks, it’s home to palm tree canopies, illuminated parrots of Treasure Island, an oversized Jacuzzi tub and a pink flamingo powder room. You’ll also spy smaller touches in the kitchen, like mugs shaped like Captain Hook’s head. There’s a wonderful view of the lake directly outside, and a BBQ by the crystal clear blue waters of your own private pool.
The Ultimate Cinderella Castle set inside the Reunion Resort hits the perfect midpoint between themed rental and stylish spot for adults to enjoy, too. Looking just like a normal rental from the outside, it’s a place of wonder inside, with a real-life carriage for a bed in one room and a Star Wars-themed getaway in another.

Calling all Mickey lovers: this themed getaway focuses around one particular character, and you’ll spy his charm in virtually every area of this cute and cozy house. With one bedroom and space for up to five guests, it’s best suited for a small family or a couple. It’s mostly red and white, with grinning mouse faces covering the walls, bedrooms and even the floors. A perfectly budget-friendly option if you’re looking to save your money for the parks, this Airbnb is one you’ll love calling home for a few days.
Step into this Champion’s Gate Wizards Way rental and you’ll find yourself surrounded by all things Harry Potter.

Traveling to Orlando with a group of people just as Disney and Universal-mad as you are? This is the rental for you. While some of these spots might tone down their cartoon nature in the grown-ups’ bedrooms, you’ll spy Disney magic in every single part of this place. Sure, the kids’ rooms might go all out even more so, but you’ll still find a life-size Harry Potter swooping across the bed in one room and an almost floor-to-ceiling Mickey Mouse in another. Kids’ rooms come with bunk beds and even more brightly colored aspects: think a vibrant yellow and blue Minion room, a delicate lilac Frozen room with falling snowflakes, and a laser-filled Star Wars room. Communal areas here are equally as bright, filled with Mickey in every corner, and come with all of the essentials for a wonderful vacation. Surrounded by breathtaking views and only minutes away from the parks in the best gated community in Kissimmee, if you’re looking for a quiet and peaceful place to relax after all the park activities, this is the place to stay.
