Celebration: the town that disney created.

26 november 2011 § Een reactie plaatsen

Celebration is a census-designated place (CDP) and a master-planned communityin Osceola County, Florida, United States, located near Walt Disney World Resortand originally developed by The Walt Disney Company. As part of theOrlando–Kissimmee Metropolitan Statistical Area, Celebration’s population was 7,427 at the 2010 census.[3]

Subsequent to founding Celebration, Disney followed its plans[4] to divest most of its control of the town. Several Disney business units continue to occupy the town’s office buildings, and two utility companies, Smart City Telecom and Reedy Creek Energy Services, both operated from Walt Disney World, provide services to the town. The town itself remains directly connected to the Walt Disney World resorts via one of its primary streets, World Drive, which begins near the Magic Kingdom.

Downtown Celebration’s post office was designed by Michael Graves, its town hall by Philip Johnson and its Celebration Health building by Robert A. M. Stern.[5]Response to Celebration has ranged from an early visitor who said it resembled the too-perfect town of The Stepford Wives,[5] to those who see Celebration as a return to small-town values with walkable and safe communities.[6]
