These aren’t your standard coastal-inspired beach houses or urban-industrial hotel rooms: Hosts and owners of the digs we’ve included here have gone to great lengths to fully deck out their property and carry a designated theme into every last detail, leaving nothing overlooked.

How to go on every single ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 1 hour

How to go on every single ride at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 1 hour Even if you go to Walt Disney World every single year and consider yourself a veteran of the parks, it’s impossible to do everything at the resort. Beyond the four theme parks and two water parks, there are over 50 rides and attractions, not to mention dozens of shows, over 200 restaurants, 20-plus resort hotels and endless attractions and things to see that don’t even require a park ticket. It’s a lot! Knocking anything off your Disney bucket list — such as riding every single ride at one of the parks — is a challenge to get done in a single day, let alone in just a single hour. But thanks to a relatively new event, Disney After Hours, that’s totally possible.

Wes Anders Inn, Cleveland, Ohio

You’ve never seen a vacation rental as photo-ready as the Wes Anders Inn. The entire house resembles a film set, and each room is inspired by a female character from the hosts’ favorite Wes Anderson films, including Margot ("The Royal Tenenbaums"), Suzy ("Moonrise Kingdom") and Rita ("The Darjeeling Limited").
