Disney World's residential neighborhood

Living in the heart of happiest place on Earth… it’s a dream that almost seems too good to be possible. Except, it is possible. Disney World‘s residential neighborhood, which is called Golden Oak, lets you live right within the park’s boundaries. You’ll never have to leave and face the harsh realities of the outside world again… unlike those peasants in Celebration, Florida, Disney’s resort community, who have to drive 10 minutes to get to the park.

Mickey and Cinderella as neighbors aren’t the only perks that come with an address in Disney World’s residential neighborhood. You’ll join their version of a country club and get access to the clubhouse pool, restaurant, lounge, fitness center and more. You get free shuttles to the parks, and a “fee-based concierge” that can help you with pretty much anything, from VIP park tours to Disney-inspired holiday decor. Plus, you’ll be living around all of these people who love Disney and the Disney experience just as much as you.

Golden Oak is located just southeast of the Magic Kingdom (location, location, location, amirite?) and there are distinctive districts featuring different sizes and styles of homes. For example, Kimball Trace features moderate-sized, Tuscan-inspired villa homes. Carolwood is where the largest and most expensive homes are. We’re talking between 6,500 and 12,000 square feet of air-conditioned space” on lots that can be up to 3/4 of an acre.

And all of the names have a meaning. “Golden Oak” is from Walt Disney’s Golden Oak Ranch in California, the “Marceline” district is named for his Missouri hometown, and “Carolwood” comes from his private railroad.

Of course, living in Disney World’s residential neighborhood doesn’t come cheap. Their website hints that homes start at around 2 million dollars. And you’ll still need to buy a pass to Disney World (although you can buy a special pass only available to Golden Oak Club members that gets you some bonus events and experiences). That all sounds great… but as for me, I’m just gonna wait for Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Disney’s Golden Oak”.

  1. First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideeas out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it jjust seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure outt how to begin. Any suggestions or
    tips? Thank you!
