A charming, full color mini coffee table book exhibiting the enchanting beauty of Celebration, Florida Celebration is a unique, neo traditional community conceived by then Disney CEO Michael Eisner, planned by Robert A.M Stern and Jaquelin Robertson, and designed by the Imagineers of The Walt Disney Company, as well as by some of the most notable architects in the world Founded in 1994, the town has attracted residents from all over the world, many of whom stopped by for a visit while vacationing in nearby Disney World and fell in love with this modern re creation of a small, 1940s eastern seaboard town Not to be confused with either Florida retirement communities or the back lot movie sets of Disney Hollywood Studios, Celebration is a real town with real people of all ages, living in an idyllic setting encouraging leisurely strolls along winding, tree lined streets that feature well manicured lawns and gardens, and white picket fences Scores of neighborhood parks, elevated wooden walkways, and lakes or ponds punctuate the landscape About half the area of Celebration is wooded conservation area The eight villages of Celebration cluster around an inviting Town Center of shops, restaurants, and offices the Town Center also serves as a venue for frequent outdoor concerts, festivals, and community activities The town boasts two boutique hotels, six houses of worship, and the world class campus of Celebration Health Florida Hospital, fast becoming a renowned center for innovative health care and medical training But at the heart of all these features and facilities is a family oriented, community minded spirit that recalls a life of decades past a friendly, clean, safe, patriotic, and stimulating place to live That was Walt Disney s vision for encouraging a revival of the small American towns of his youth That vision is embodied today in Celebration....

The Town of Celebration: A pictorial look at Celebration, Florida, Disney's neo-traditional community built in the early 1990s on the southern-most tip of Walt Disney World (Volume 1) Reviews
Photos were nice but that's all there was. I was hoping for some information on Celebration the town. How it started, what makes it different from other communities, and what is it like to live there.
This was a 5 minute 'looksee'. Kind of a like a sales brochure. I liked the pictures, but it would have been better even if he had identified ANY of them. And some were just of kids playing, fishing, at school- that could have been anywhere. I am not going to return it but it won't go on my coffee table either. I am reading Celebration USA by Franz and Collins. No pictures, but very descriptive of neotraditional design development. Also the 'who, what, and where' of the residents. I'm finding it very interesting and about 1/3 way through. I'm thinking of moving there, so want as much info as possible.
Smaller than expected and a little dull
