Worth going to see. There are plenty of shops to stroll around and a good range of cafes and restaurants. A stylised version of America perhaps, but go and have a look.

You can spend an afternoon at Celebration just enjoying a rocking chair around the lake in the center of town, or watching the kids run through the very splashy fountain lakeside. Many nice spots for dinner or just an ice cream "to settle your stomach" as we say at my house.

CELEBRATION This is a very special town, built in the way that Walt Disney himself wished. Just drive slowly around the fabulous houses, and pick the one in which you would like to live if you won the lottery! There are lots of place to dine, walks to take around the lakes looking out for the abundant wildlife and on a Sunday there is often an open air market or art exhibition. We love to brunch at one of the outdoor restaurants, and people-watch. It was there that we saw our very first dog-in-a-stroller being pushed by!

Must go there. Celebration, Florida is a planned community created by a real estate division of The Walt Disney Company. The Walt Disney Company commissioned famous architects to create the master plan and to design the buildings.
Founded in 1994, Celebration has the flavor of southern American village from the 1930s. About 2,500 homes are clustered around a small, pedestrian-friendly shopping area. Celebration, Florida is often cited as an example of New Urbanism, or neo-traditional town design.
In 2004, the Disney Company sold the 16-acre town center to Lexin Capital, a private real estate investment company. However, Market Street still has a storybook atmosphere that some visitors call "Disney-esque." There is a Caribbean flavor to the buildings here. Sided in brightly-colored stucco, the Market Street buildings have wide overhangs, shutters, verandas, and arcades.

A lovely quiet place considering how close it is to the parks.We found a great shop which sold cards,ornaments and much more.We bought some fantastic cards which when opened were Christmas globes,ideal to keep year after year.On a Sunday there is a small market and we bought some fresh fruit from it.A great place to sit in the rockers at the side of the lake and watch the day go by.Would say if you are sick of the parks and want somewhere nice but quiet to go then this Celebration is ideal.

This is a nice diversion to all of the main tourist sites around the Orlando area. It looks like a version of the small town one thinks of and would probably like to live in. They have a cute little downtown area, a lake you can walk around and a number of nice restaurants. They also have some nice events like the Great American Pie Festival. We even looked at the housing here but it can be quite expensive.

It's a cute town.
Upon entering, we noticed how it seems to be built to appeal to everyone's idea of "Hometown, USA". There are so many different styles and price points of homes here. One cannot doubt, however, that this is a neighborhood.
The heartbeat of the Celebration is in the town center with a lake that one can walk around, shops, hotels and restaurants. It's rather quaint but I cannot help but feel that this town needs some upkeep attention. It looked a little bit tired in brightness and landscape appearance.
The restaurant with the biggest crowd was the Market Street Cafe. I just want to mention that here since I did not go to that restaurant. It may be something a planner would want to look into before heading there.
