OP: ABout 5 miles away from WDW (maybe more maybe less) is a small little town called CELEBRATION. DH & I stayed there in Feb before our WDW vacation. We had an extra day and stayed at the Celebration Hotel. It is adorable. The town is quite small and very neat and very clean and the homes are all LOVELY. We looked at a townhouse open house and about 2000 sq feet was $450,000!!!! YUP!!! They have ONE OFFICER. They have afew lovely restaurants but no TARGET or CVS type stores. They have a SPA and I got a mani/pedi and DH got his hair cut BUT very $$$$!!!!

Maybe someone else can post about its history...it USED to be associated with DISNEY but not anymore from what I understand.

There is a BEAUTIFUL hospital in Celebration as well that I believe WDW uses IF anyone is sick/ill/injured while at WDW.

Here's the website. It looks like it still does belong to Disney. The site still has their copyright, and under the privacy policy, the email address is a Disney one. Hope this helps! :goodvibes

Kitten: If you look again at that site you posted you will note under PRESS ROOM the Coming Events are dated BACK to Jan 2004 and BEFORE that 2003! I believe that is an OLD site! They do NOT list any activities for 2004-2005-2006... :confused3

When we spoke with the sales agent for the townhouse we looked at while in Celebration in Feb 2006, he got into more details than I needed about how it really is not part of WDW anymore!!!

I am hoping someone else that is more familiar with Celebration will post here.

Celebration is actrually built on some of the disney property and yes it does belong to the Disney Company. Celebration is kind of what Walt Disney wanted to originally do with EPCOT in his original plans.

Actually it doesn't belong to Disney anymore. Disney got out a few years ago.
Here's a better website http://www.celebrationinfo.com/

My DS15 attends Celebration High School and really likes it. It's a nice town and they do all kinds of festivals and stuff. We go over quite often to visit the weekly Farmer's Market and eat a meal.
Prices have skyrocked in the last 2 years or so.

We went into Celebration because we had always wanted to visit there. It is very quaint. We went to use a bank there and my Dd and I went into an adorable kid's clothing/toy store or maybe it was a doll store I forget but loved riding around town.

Actually, there is a doll store - Daydreams - AND an adorable kid's clothing store - Lollipop Cottage.

As for Disney, they are still here. They operate under the subsidiary The Celebration Company and they owned the downtown area (two streets, restaurants, shops, offices - think outdoor mall) but sold it to Lexin.

The Celebration Company still owns land in Celebration that has not yet been developed. Also, they retain one seat on the homeowner's association. That is, until he next election.

Anyway, enough of the history lesson. Come, visit, have something to eat, sit in one of the rocking chairs by the lake and then drive around and look at all the pretty houses.
