The Vacation Home of Your Dreams

 

We love our homes, but let’s face it: There is always something that comes up lacking as you fight for room in the kitchen, stand outside with the hose in hand watering the grass until you can afford a sprinkler system, or even turn an extra bedroom into a closet, limiting the guests who can visit, simply so you have enough room for your clothes! In any case, the vacation home of your dreams has no negatives and will fit you, your family, and your friend like a glove as you frolic in the private pool, watch movies on the big screen, and sleep like a baby every night of your stay!

Booking now will ensure that in just a few short months you will be strutting up to the front door of the vacation home of your dreams, inputting the key code, and taking over the premises with a smile that stays plastered to your face the duration of your vacation in paradise!

Lose Yourself in Your Dreams

 

Your daily life is hectic, and for five days of every week you wake up early and drag yourself into work to face angry clients, bosses, and coworkers.

You can picture yourself lifting your head to look up at the clock, checking out the numbers shining in the early morning light, and rolling back over to sleep for as long as you want.

By the time Thanksgiving rolls around, most of the nation has already begun to dip its toes into the winter season, even if the official start is still more than a month away. The leaves have all fallen from the trees, the skies stay gray and gloomy, and in colder states (or those with higher altitudes) the snow has already fallen more than once, making driving a nightmare! Here in Orlando, however, the humidity is beginning to dry up a bit, the sun is going to be shining, and eternal summer continues, making our Florida city one that offers a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Just imagine not having to clean your house from top to bottom, (our cleaners not just clean, they sanitize and disinfect) not having to listen to cranky relatives complain that the turkey is too dry, and not having to cook the meal yourself! Many local restaurants are open and happy to prep, serve, and clear, so your Thanksgiving getaway to Orlando and your stay in one of our Magnolia Villas holiday hideaways is guaranteed to give you more things to be thankful about!

2021 Turkey Trot, November 25th, 8 AM, Avalon Town Park in Orlando

You have all this extra time of your hands and you are still going to be eating a week’s worth of calories later in the day, so why not be pre-emptive and get your exercise out of the way? The 2021 Turkey Trot, sponsored by the Avalon Park Foundation, allows you to eat more later and do a good deed at the same time; this non-profit organization funnels the moneys it receives from the Turkey Trot admission fees into the neighborhoods and communities of Orlando! Prices start at $20 for adults and $10 for kids if you register online before November 5, but they will go up in $5 increments the closer you get to race day, so don’t delay, sign up now!

Time to Eat

At last! After years of working your fingers to the bone, trying to ensure that all 17 dishes are ready to be consumed at the same time and being so tired and edgy you really don’t enjoy your hard work, it is time to let someone else take over the cooking. You can sit back, relax, and enjoy a meal expertly prepared by someone else and walk away refreshed, relaxed, and full at meal’s end! As you might expect, there are more than a few restaurants that will be open and serving a wonderful Thanksgiving meal, but the Capital Grille, located at 9101 International Drive, is definitely a local favorite! Offering a traditional Thanksgiving menu, as well as the thick and juicy steaks that make a night out on the town so much more special, the Capital Grille will put the thanks back into your Thanksgiving celebration.

Night of a Million Lights, November 25, 5PM-10PM, Give Kids the World Village in Kissimmee

After the last bite of turkey has been eaten and the sun has set on another Thanksgiving Day, the lights turn up in nearby Kissimmee! The Night of a Million Lights in Give Kids the World Village offers a festive beginning to the next holiday season, and if you miss out, you will never be able to forgive yourself. Running for 52 nights and featuring millions of lights that dance, twinkle, and shine, ticket prices go towards giving critically ill children (and their families too, of course!) vacations that will not cost them anything! Meaning that as you walk through the village, enjoying sweet treats, holiday music, and even a trail of sparkling trees, your holiday spirit will receive a much needed bump AND you will be doing something good for those who aren’t as fortunate as you are!

Stay Home and Play

Not all Thanksgiving fun has to take part outside the boundaries of your Magnolia Villas vacation escape. Start the day watching the Thanksgiving Day parade on state of the art televisions that are large enough to make you feel as if you are part of the fun, except you won’t be subjected to the cold and weather that people in New York are having to live through! Choose to make your own Thanksgiving feast in our fully equipped kitchens where updated appliances, high-end cabinets and countertops, and cheery ambiances help bring back the joy in your cooking experiences. Add a happy twist to your familiar traditions by dining at patio tables out by the pool and when the meal is complete, you can practice your cannonballs while the KIDS clear the table! However you choose to spend our second favorite holiday, spending it in the comforts of our Magnolia Villas holiday hideaways promises to make this Thanksgiving one you will never forget! Reserve your favorite home away from home today!

Named for a giant oak tree that survived a lightning strike that split it in half, the Split Oak Forest Wildlife and Environmental Area offers a breathtaking look at the natural beauty of the Florida landscape. Enjoy cooler temperatures as you hike along the 9+ miles of trails and paths that take you close to the wildlife, and as you spot beautiful flowers and the ethereal butterflies flitting from bloom to bloom, take a few minutes to just breathe. Your real life is so hectic, these quiet moments are bound to be memorable!

Orlando Brewing, 1301 Atlanta Avenue

Every season is the right season for a craft beer, and Orlando Brewing might just have a pumpkin porter that you will fall in love with! Also featuring their version of Oktoberfest, held September 18th, the event will be held outside to help guests celebrate safely as they eat German food, listen to live music, play games, and, of course, drink plenty of ice-cold German beer! Orlando Brewing always has an event going on, no matter what time of year you choose to visit, so if you miss out on Oktoberfest, purchase a couple of tasting tours and sip your way through the delicious maze of specialty brews.

Ghost Tours of Orlando

Why not get your blood flowing right from the start with a chilling ghost tour offered by Orlando Haunts! We are not alone in the world, and the wonderful guides know the tragic underbelly of Orlando; they will take you to where the spirit world and our world collide! Learn the terrifying tales of pirate’s pillaging gone bad, the woeful stories of love gone wrong, and the truly sad narrative of those who lived alone, died alone, and are now just looking for some company as the centuries slowly pass by.

The Most Delicious Tours of All

Our favorite part of any vacation is getting a chance to taste the flavors of the region, and the best way to do so in Orlando is with a food tour offered by Wandering Palms! Savor your way through the Milk District neighborhood with a variety of tours, including the Neighborhood Eats tour, which will take guests to five local restaurants, and the Almond Milk District Vegan Tour that also visits five restaurants but is focused on the plant-based meals that are so yummy in this region. Finally, they also offer the Foodtography Mills 50; perfect for all you budding influencers who love posting all the pics of all the foods you have enjoyed over the years, this tour visits four different restaurants but includes tips and hints on how to take the best pictures of your meals!

Make Up Your Own Tour

After all that food, you are probably feeling a little thirsty, so why not make up your own tour of the Orlando wine bars and sip your way fantastic through the night? Ride share services make this tour safe for all involved as you sip in and out of Wine Bar George, Vine’s Grille and Wine Bar, the Eola Wine Company, and a host of other wine bars in the area! At last count, we noted eight fantastic places to sip and savor, but that number is always changing! Although we cannot say that we have a favorite wine bar, we can tell you there is a soft spot in our hearts for the Wine Room on Park Avenue, located in nearby Winter Park, and offering over 150 handpicked wines for you to try. We do not recommend trying all 150 in one night, however, and if your goal is to try them all out, we suggest making more than a few trips!

The Bird’s Eye View Tour

Orlando is a beautiful city, but its size prevents visitors from really being able to enjoy all its charms unless you choose a helicopter tour offered by Air Force Fun! Flying you over all the spots you may want to visit personally, later on, the tour times range from a quick 4- to 5-minute tour that takes you over Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, and Volcano Bay to the monster flight tour that lasts 20 to 25 minutes! Otherwise known as tour number 6, this flight will give you a bird’ eye view of the best of Orlando, including SeaWorld, Disney’s ESPN Wide World of Sports, and Gatorland!

From the Sky to the Sea

Well, not exactly the sea, as Orlando is about an hour’s drive away from the beach, but the kayak tours offered by Get Up and Go Kayaking in nearby Winter Park. They offer daylight tours of the lakes in clear kayaks that allow you to see all that swims below, and nighttime tours that feature kayaks with color-changing LED lights to add an extra twinkle to your explorations! Also offering sunset tours that will take your breath away (Remember to keep hold of your paddle and don’t let it slip away in the excitement of the moment!), this tour company is one of the best in the region.
