Celebration was originally a master-planned community created by The Walt Disney Company in the 1990s and owes much of its aesthetically pleasing design to the internationally renowned company, which employed several other award-winning architecture companies to complete the task. Now mostly self-governed, Celebration has largely maintained an adherence to the Disney standard of beauty and presentation.
Real estate in Celebration can vary between opulent estates and classy condos; a feature inherent to the original intention of crafting a diverse, inclusive community. Many of the most lavish houses reflect the best of Floridian architecture, ranging from commanding Key West mansions to resort-style, Mediterranean estates and even stunning French Provincials.
A strong sense of community pervades throughout Celebration, fostered by an impressive calendar of events and a universal dedication to preserving the town’s friendly ambiance. Sundays are spent browsing the local goods at the Farmers Market with your neighbors, and holidays are for coming together and engaging in a cheerful array of festivities.
The effervescent heart of Celebration is its thriving Town Center, defined by its bevy of little boutiques and high-class restaurants, as well as its scenic setting adjacent to the waters of Lake Rianhard. The fairytale ambiance of Town Center is emphasized by the quaint whimsy of its shops. Open up to the magic of the wares at Dazzling — a tribute to all things sparkling and self-care-related — or find the perfect gift for any occasion at shops such as Market Street Gallery.

As far as events for the community go, Celebration is absolutely brimming with festivities. During the Christmas holiday season, Celebration is completely transformed by magic — or so it feels — into a winter wonderland. Nightly snowfall throughout the month of December is achieved through the use of fluffy fake snow, which elevates the beauty of the massive Christmas tree at the town’s center. The event also includes a synthetic skating rink, community performances, and carolers.
