Dad’s Review of The Magical Portal House
Disclaimer: We received a free stay at the Magical Portal House in exchange for social media and content creation. However, all opinions in this review are my own.
We stayed at the Magical Portal House for 3 nights in February 2023 and we ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT! In this post, I want to share all of the things that I loved about this house but first, let’s give a quick overview of all the features this house has to offer.
Here is my full video tour:
The Magical Portal House is a Disney-themed vacation home located in the Champions Gate Resort which is located in Davenport Florida. The home is just under 30 minutes from the Walt Disney World Resort and also nearby Universal Studios, Orlando. However, the house itself is sure to keep your family entertained with the following amenities:
- 6 Bedrooms/6 Bathrooms all with fun Disney themes
- Tron Game Room/Arcade
- Two Spacious Common Areas(Pixar & Tangled Themed)
- Private Pool & Spa with tons of outdoor seating.
- Full Kitchen & Dining Area with seating for 14
The Magical Portal Is So Cool
So you might be wondering why they call it the Magical Portal House… Upstairs there are two “kids” rooms that are connected together by a “magical portal”. The portal itself is such a fun feature to showcase and connect the awesome theming of the Black Panther and Moana bedrooms. My words don’t do it justice so here is a quick video to showcase just how awesome this is.
The kids had so much fun in this room! The Black Panther room has a fun Wakanda-themed bunk bed and the Moana room has a fun-themed bunk bed as well as an additional bed. There are plenty of beds for all your kids.
This Is The Best House To Stay At With Babies
I can not even begin to express how amazing and nice it was to stay at the Magical Portal House with babies. The last time we stayed in Florida at a different house they didn’t have any amenities for babies so we had to find a crib to borrow in Florida from a family friend. This house has everything you could think of and MORE. There is a gate at the top of the stairs, 2 available crib options, a playpen, high chairs, bouncers, strollers, a baby bathtub, toys, books, and more. See the images below. The best part is they asked me where we wanted the cribs and they had them set up in the rooms we requested.
The Tron Arcade Is Incredible
The Magical Portal House has a huge arcade/game room that is themed after the classic Tron. There are murals painted all over the wall with special black light effects. The arcade has something for everyone including:
- A racing arcade game
- Air hockey
- 2 multiplayer arcade machines with all the classics like Pac-Man loaded on them
- X-Box Series X with big TV
- The TRON arcade game of course
The Theming Is AMAZING
Overall this house is just amazing with all of the little Disney details. One of my favorites was the snuggly duckling sign in the kitchen.
The four main bedrooms are themed after Princess and The Frog, Cinderella, Ratatouille, and Beauty and the Beast.
The house is amazing but so are the hosts. We actually randomly ran into Jenny and Patrick during the firework show at Disneyland and they are such great people. You can tell that they truly want your stay to be as amazing as it can be. They went above and beyond to communicate clearly and make sure before and after our stay went smoothly.
If your family is looking for a place to stay near Walt Disney World, I highly highly recommend you check out The Magical Portal House for your next vacation.
