The plus to this house was the size and location. We had a large party and we wanted to all stay in one house. The location was one we chose. We have been to Disney a few times and knew the area we preferred.
The reason for the average rating is that the house had bare essentials. There were no pool towels, the description said otherwise. The kitchen was very bare. Just enough dishes for once around. Plus the utensils were quite lacking. Thankfully we flexible but it ddi make it rather trying.
The house does have lots of baby stuff. Read more
Thanks for your review of Magical Magna following your stay in March 2011.
We are sorry that you felt that the property description was inaccurate. We will be sure to review what it says and double check. As with all homes, they often require some additional TLC, and this home received a number of upgrades just after your departure. We hope that this didn't spoil your vacation and we will certainly pass your comments and feedback to the property owner for consideration. We look forward to welcoming you back the next time your visit the Disney area.

Magical Magna was a wonderful home to stay in. It was clean, convenient and spacious to fit our large family. The children loved getting up in the morning to take a swim in the pool. It was very close to Disney. We travelled from Boston with relatives from Rome, Italy. It was their first time in Disney and they loved everything about it. Except for the long lines around the holiday season. It was nice to have a spacious kitchen to cook or to use with take out. It would have been nice to have a few items like diswashing soap or filter for the coffee machine. Maybe a checklist for guests would help so they can go out and get everything they need. We had to make multiple trips to the grocery store. We had a wonderful time and would use this location again. Read more
Dear Brian and family
Thanks for your review of "Magical Magna" at Emerald Island resort.

Since you stayed, we now provide an optional grocery delivery service that stocks up the fridge and larder so that the home has everything that you need on your arrival. This service can be booked through our Guest service department.
We wish it could have lasted longer.

The house was well equipped and, unusual but good, the pool area had enough seating for 12 people. Magical Magna is the almost the perfect house if you have alot of adults or multiple couples because many of the bedrooms (4 or 5) have double beds or larger, unlike some of the other rentals which have too many twins and bunks for kids.
Thanks for your review of "Magical Magna" pool home at Emerald Island resort.
We were very pleased that the property was the perfect accommodation for your family on your trip to the Disney area. We hope that you plan to come back to the Disney area again soon and look forward to welcoming you.

Once again, our stay at the Magical Magna house was perfect! Both of our stays at Emerald Island were with several other couples that traveled to Florida to see our kids compete at the Disney Sports Complex. The house is in a perfect location for any Orlando destinations. The large gathering and pool areas are perfect for groups of people. We loved being able to share cooking, socializing, and relaxing around the pool after a busy day. We'll be back! Read more
Dear Lyla and family
Thanks for your review of "Magical Magna" on Emerald Island resort. Thanks also for staying and being one of our regular returning guests. We're delighted to see that the property met with your expectations and was a good base for your tournament at Disney's Wide World of Sports.
We hope that you are planning another tourney this year or next and that we'll be able to welcome you back soon.
