The Ever After Estate was even better in person than on the web site. We enjoyed a week-long vacation with a total of 19 family members and friends and all ages had a fantastic time, from the one year-old to the 22 year-old to the grandmother.
The children all loved the pool, especially the amazing slide. Watching a movie in the pool was a hit. The kids also had a great time in the ball pit and watching movies and playing video games in the home theatre. The boys enjoyed sleeping in the theatre chairs. Everyone enjoyed playing the many arcade games throughout the estate.
The fishermen among us spent lots of time down by the water, making friends with fish, birds, and little gators. The toddler loved the trampoline and the carousels; his Mom loved walking him to sleep in the stroller on the grounds. We all enjoyed the playgrounds and mini-golf course.
The kitchen was huge and well-stocked with dishes and supplies. The owner was gracious enough to link us up with a chef for the week. We contacted him ahead of time and pre-planned meals, which meant we could all relax and enjoy each other's company rather than having to stress about cooking and cleaning. The concierge also did the initial shopping trip for us so we could just settle in when we arrived rather than having to make a large shopping trip. The grocery store was close by when we needed to restock snacks and drinks.
Some of us only left the estate once to visit nearby relatives; others took advantage of the close proximity to Disney to spend a day or two at the parks. The bedrooms were very comfortable and well-planned for families. The screened back porch was a favorite gathering place and a perfect place for a nap. The kids loved driving the golf cart and the parents loved knowing the kids were safe and well-entertained. I think we tried everything that was available except the 3 court volleyball court! Next time!!
