You can actually live at Disney World — without squatting in Cinderella’s castle

Do you dream of living in a fairy tale? Well, now you can — kinda. And who else but Disney could make that dream come true? Only 4 miles from Walt Disney World, the Golden Oak community is the first-ever fairy tale area of its kind at the resort, with single-family homes available for whole-ownership purchase.

Remember Celebration, Disney’s 1994 real estate project? It’s a town of almost 8,000 people, which is directly connected to the Walt Disney World resorts via one of its primary streets, World Drive, which begins near the Magic Kingdom. Golden Oaks is a little different. This gated community is more like a year-round holiday resort, and only for those who can afford the hefty price tag.
