Celebration is like living a taste of Disney without having to ever step inside the gates. This small community is home to roughly 8,000 people, giving it a small town feel despite its location right in the heart of Orlando.

With its reputation for safety and its walkability, it’s one of the best options available both to individuals and families. Shops, restaurants, and live entertainment are all readily accessible right on the main drag.
First established as a community for northerners to get away from the dead of winter in their second home, Winter Park has developed into one of the most dignified and prestigious neighborhoods in the shadow of Disney World.

The farmer’s market is of particular interest, and the community, in general, has become a refuge for elderly retirees looking for access to Disney without having to sacrifice their privacy in the process.
Situated roughly forty minutes from Disney World, Windemere is a little farther out from some of the other neighborhood. However, it combines accessibility with a serene and lovely small-town atmosphere. In a city where tourist attractions are the norm, Windemere offers a refreshing respite from tour buses and gawking visitors. It’s blissfully free of big-city distractions, and one-story ranch homes reign supreme in this tiny but growing community.

The community clubhouse offers both a pool and golf course along with 24/7 amenities. As an added bonus, all residents receive an annual pass to Walt Disney World.
