This master-planned community is perfectly placed in the heart of sunny Central Florida in Osceola County approximately one hour from Tampa, one hour and ten minutes from romantic Cocoa Beach, and mere minutes from the amazing amusement parks that make the City of Orlando famous. A commuter's delight, Celebration is within easy access to Interstate 4, State Road 417, and Highway 192.
Early 20th century design is the inspiration for the idyllic setting in Celebration, which is revealed in the Victorian, Classical, Colonial Revival, Coastal, Mediterranean, and French architectural styles. Disney called upon the creative genius of world-renown architects Robert A. M. Stern and Cooper, Robertson, and Partners to create this storybook setting.
Walking down the enchanted streets of Celebration, you immediately notice the convenience of this well-designed town. Restaurants, grocery stores, shops, and even a two-screen movie theater are all within walking distance of the residences. Imagine the serenity of a Thomas Kincaid painting and the innocence of a Norman Rockwell image and you begin to have some idea of the picturesque setting that Celebration offers.
The children of Celebration delight in spouting water fountains near the lovely park as southern rocking chairs gently rock in the evening breeze at the edge of the private lake. The rocking chairs may have to wait until after a round of golf at the Celebration Golf Club, which was designed by Robert Trent Jones, Sr. and Jr. and is rated by Golf Digest as one of the "top courses you can play."
The year-round warm Central Florida climate encourages Celebration residents to indulge in many outdoor community activities such as the spring Easter egg hunt, car shows, art festivals, a patriotic Fourth of July with amazing fireworks and accompanying music, and yes Disney magic even creates Florida snow on Market Street during the winter holiday months.
Young minds will be nurtured at Celebration School for students in grades K-8 while young adults will be challenged at Celebration High School for grades 9-12; both are among the top-rated schools in Florida as is Stetson University, which also has a campus in Celebration.
Celebration is home to nearly 2,000 residents who live in gorgeous single-family homes, condominiums, and apartments along scenic streets.
