Discover Celebration

Are you ready to embark on an unforgettable Florida adventure? Look no further than the charming town of Celebration, located just a short drive from the outstanding FantasyWorld Resort, a resort in Lake Buena Vista South. With its picturesque streets, great shopping and dining, and plethora of attractions, Celebration offers a unique and enchanting experience for visitors. Here are some tips for exploring this magical town.

This unique town was founded by The Walt Disney Company in the mid-1990s. It was built to bring to life the appeal of historical American small towns, with civic buildings designed by world-famous architects like Philip Johnson, Cesar Pelli, and Robert A.M. Stern. The master-planned community is obviously a success as Forbes Magazine named it one of America’s ten prettiest towns.

Filled with pedestrian-friendly streets, the town is made up of a mix of homes, businesses, restaurants, retail stores, and more, just as you’d find in any small town. The popular downtown area is compact and easily walkable. There’s even a self-guided architectural walking tour of downtown that explains the stories behind the town’s most architecturally interesting buildings including the Sun Trust Bank and the post office. You can pick up your map at Town Hall.

You can also explore Celebration by bikes that can be rented from Celebration Bike Rental. You’ll get a bicycle, map, and a bottle of water before you head out to explore the lakefront nature trails with 8- and 10-mile tours where you’re likely to see some wildlife. You can also pedal along the tree-lined residential streets, and brick-paved downtown.

Market Street is the main shopping promenade, but you’ll find a great range of shops throughout downtown. Market Street Gallery is a popular spot as it offers a range of items, including home decor, jewelry, and even a year-round Christmas room. 

Celebration’s downtown structures were designed to encourage people to congregate and build a sense of community. One hugely popular spot is the Lakeside Promenade Fountain by Lake Rianhard. The fountain is interactive with three rings of water jets where kids – and kids at heart – are welcome to play. There are also benches surrounded by palm trees where you can sit and watch the fun. 

With its enchanting architecture, vibrant community, and abundance of attractions, this charming town has something to offer for everyone. Reserve your vacation villa at FantasyWorld Resort, a nearby resort in Lake Buena Vista South, and don’t miss this unique town.
