Celebration

Celebration is a census-designated place and a master-planned community originally developed by The Walt Disney Company, located close to Walt Disney World in Orlando. It opened to much fanfare and public acclaim in the mid 1990s, and was named the “New Community of the Year” in 2001 by the Urban Land Institute.

Encompassing an area of 10.7 square miles, Celebration was designed according to Walt Disney’s vision for a community that captures the 1950s small-town lifestyle while having modern amenities and conveniences. Celebration was developed along the principles of “new urbanism”, which included mixed residential and commercial zoning, plenty of community spaces, pedestrian-friendly streets and self-contained downtown areas.

The community boasts its own public schools, but is also in close proximity to other excellent private and public schools in the area.

While Celebration has its share of challenges, it remains an ideal neighborhood for families, with its stunning homes, postcard-pretty streets, lushly landscaped parks and a quaint downtown. It has a village-like atmosphere where families get together in community events and at central hubs like the master-designed Town Center.

Homes in the neighborhood have been designed by the country’s top builders, and include a mix of single-family and multi-family properties in architectural styles that include Colonial, Mediterranean and Folk Victorian.

Celebration neighborhoods

Celebration is divided into 9 “villages”:

  • North Village
  • Celebration Village
  • Longmeadow Park
  • South Village
  • West Village
  • Roseville Corner
  • East Village
  • Artisan Park
  • Spring Lake

The housing stock in each of these villages varies widely, from luxurious estate homes and condos to more affordable single-family homes and townhouses. These properties are found in smaller communities created by some of the top developers in the country.

Georgetown Condos and Acadia Estate Homes found in North Village offer some of the priciest and most upscale homes in the community. Celebration Village offers relatively lower priced single-family homes and townhouses that are oozing with small-town charm.

Developments like Spring Park Loop in South Village feature properties that range from sprawling estate homes to modestly sized single-families with more affordable prices. Some multi-family properties, such as Mirasol Condos also in South Village, provide full concierge services.

Each Celebration village comes with its own amenities, including swimming pools, playgrounds, clubhouses, fitness centers and community parks.

Lifestyle, culture and recreation

  • The Celebration Town Center is the community hub and centerpiece.

One of the highlights of the place is Pirate’s Dinner Adventure, a combination restaurant and attraction featuring pirate themed shows and activities, set on a replica of an 18th-century Spanish galleon.
  • Celebration is directly connected to Walt Disney World through World Drive, one of its major streets, which begin near the Magic Kingdom.
  • There are numerous community events in Celebration, including the Art & Wine Stroll at the Town Center, April’s Exotic Car Festival, Fourth of July celebrations, and the Now Snowing event at Christmastime.
