Dream Of Living At Disney World Can Now Be Reality

Have you ever dreamed of getting the chance to live at Disney World, all the time, not just visiting for a vacation?  For some fortunate people this dream can now become a reality.

Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort
Disney officially announced the creation of the Golden Oak Community at the Walt Disney World Resort.  This luxury home community will give people the opportunity to own single family luxury homes and homesites within the Walt Disney World Resort.

Community Designed By Disney Imagineers
Golden Oak will be a community that will eventually include 450 homesites on 980 acres within the Walt Disney World Resort situated near Bay Lake.  The map above shows where it will be located.

Walt Disney Imagineering handled the master planning for Golden Oak in conjunction with aclaimed design firms.  Great efforts were taken to provide areas of sanctuary within the community to provide homes to the native songbirds, osprey, and wood storks.

It will be divided into 4 arranged neighborhoods.  Each one is designed as a complement to the Golden Oak community as a whole.  Neighborhood names include: Carolwood, Silverbrook, and Kimball Trace.  A special group of select builders have been chosen to select from.

Pictured above is the proposed Private Clubhouse for the Community.

Luxury Homes
The prices of the homes will range from $1.5 - $8 million, so this is not something that will fit in everyone's budget.  Homesites come in 1/4 acre, 1/2 acre, and 3/4 acre sizes depending upon the neighborhood you choose.

Here are some of the examples of proposed home styles that will be available to build at Golden Oak:

30 Homesites Available In 2010
There are only 30 homesites that will become available in 2010.  You can get on the reservation list by placing a $25,000 refundable deposit.

Origin of The Name Golden Oak
A young Walt Disney had a special "dreaming tree" that he used to frequent near his Missouri home and explore his imagination.  It was underneath this tree that Walt deveoped his passion for storytelling.

Many years later, a now successful Walt Disney filmed his Mickey Mouse Club TV show in a location called the Golden Oak Ranch.  It was at this ranch in the Placerita Canyon of California that Walt Disney Productions acquired over 900 acres to use for TV and movie productions and to protect its harmony with nature.  Walt and his family even used a location on this ranch for to relax and play with his family.
Years later, a scenic ranch in California's Placerita Canyon proved an equally inspiring location for filming segments of The Mickey Mouse Club TV show. Walt Disney Productions purchased portions of the property in 1959 and, over the years, acquired more than 900 acres to reserve its quiet vistas for TV and movie productions and protect its harmony with nature. In fact, Walt and his family owned a getaway on the ranch, where they spent time relaxing and playing.

This California Ranch was named Golden Oak in honor of a special tree under which  gold nuggets were discovered in 1842
This inspired the naming of the 980 acres within Disney World that will combine family fun and harmony with nature.

Dreams Come True
For some lucky people this really will be a dream come true.  This is the first time that someone has had the opportunity to actually outright own a home within the Disney World Resort.   Even the DVC members only own through a long term lease.  These homes will be fully deeded to the home owner. 

Living at Golden Oak will also have privileges including:
•Private VIP transportation
•A suite of in-park benefits
•Access to select special-event tickets
•Community-hosted activities throughout the year
