I recommend checking on We found a 3 bedroom/3 bathroom townhouse with a private pool at Windsor Hills Resort by using the vrbo. They have larger rentals at Windsor Hills, so you may want to check them out. It is the closest resort to Disney property.
Here's a search of 5-6 bedroom houses at WH.
Our First trip was 4/18 - 4/27 2013. Can't wait to go back! Hopefully in 2016.

First try the orlando hotels and attractions link. You might have better luck at getting responses.

Second, I always use VRBO, Just look for homes in Lake Buena Vista or Kissimmee and you will be fairly close.

Windsor Hills is the most recommended and thus the most expensive, Then Windsor Palms for the same reasons.

I have stayed at both and they were great but I am staying at Indian Creek this time. Not a gated community but lots more ammenities, in the same area and cost less.

I try to rent directly from the owners. This makes me feel better. Most will in the end send you eventually to a rental company but at least I know, the owner knows, I am coming.
