DescriptionCelebration is an upscale master-planned community conceptualized and built by the Disney Company, which began construction on the development in 1996. Reminiscent of New England, this small, well-manicured town is about 10 miles from the Walt Disney World® Resort and comes complete with parks, a community pool, a golf course and playgrounds. Within a 5-minute walk of most residents, downtown's Town Center is home to delightful mom-and-pop shops and restaurants. The palm-tree lined Celebration Boulevard features a movie theater, a high school and businesses housed inside Art Deco-style buildings, many designed by famous architects, including a post office designed by Michael Graves.
In keeping with its family-oriented atmosphere, Celebration goes all out when it comes to celebrating annual events, which include car shows throughout the year, late April's Great American Pie Festival and Art & Wine Stroll, A Sci-Fi 4th of July, Oktoberfest in mid-October, the World Food Championships in early November and, from late November though late December, Now Snowing, a Christmas event where simulated snow drifts from the sky.
