Thousands of families travel from around the globe every year to vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort and experience the world-renowned service and hospitality offered by Disney Cast Members. For many, the pampering and hospitality they receive while on vacation will be a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and unmatched by any other experience.
But, what if you could experience the luxury of concierge-style service and Disney hospitality every day? Imagine living in a resort environment ready to meet your every need and fulfill your every request. Imagine Disney’s iconic guest service culture integrated throughout every aspect of your home and everyday life. If this has been your wish, you’ll be glad to know that dreams really do come true. Welcome to Golden Oak Community.
Golden Oak Community was designed by the Walt Disney Imagineering team and is the first luxury residential resort community to be housed within the Walt Disney World Resort property. The 940-acre community opened in late 2010 and, when completed, will feature the world’s largest Four Seasons Resort as well as a unique community space and 450 single-family luxury homes, all connected by recreational pathways, footbridges, parks, gardens and forests.
So, what can residents expect with the Walt Disney World experience at their doorstep?
Homeowners receive complimentary tickets to the Walt Disney World Resort, entitling the Passholder and four additional guests, admission to all of the theme parks and water parks for three years. These special tickets also feature admission to Extra Magic Hours, unlimited park hopping, free parking and no black out dates.
Exclusive in-park events are planned for Golden Oak residents, and may include unique experiences such as privately prepared meals or cooking demonstrations by a Disney executive chef.
The community also offers Home-to-Park shuttle service, and a discount of up to 20 percent on Disney merchandise, which will of course be delivered directly to your home.
If that wasn’t enough to have you jumping in your seat, when the holidays come around and you are looking to get your home in the holiday spirit, you can count on Residence Services to have the very same people who design the parks and hotels at Christmas to custom design your winter wonderland.
Many private communities offer club house amenities for their residents, but few can boast the benefits of Summerhouse. Located in the heart of Golden Oak, Summerhouse is also the home office of two “concierge” Disney Cast Members, available to answer questions, make reservations or plan vacations. Have important guests coming into town? Why not host an upscale evening in Summerhouse’s private dining room staffed by the Four Seasons. Residents can also enjoy a heated pool, fitness center, game center and a multitude of seasonal activities hosted throughout the year.
The community of Golden Oak is divided into distinct neighborhoods: Carolwood, Silverbrook and Kimball Trace, with future developments in the works. Carolwood offers grand estate style homes in a secluded enclave of the Carolwood preserve, ranging between 6,500 – 12,000 square feet. Silverbrook features quiet conservation areas and sparkling water features for its 19 Estate homes, each situated on one-half acre sites ranging in size between 5,000-7,000 square feet. In contrast, Kimball Trace is a Tuscan-inspired village designed to emphasize both privacy and natural elements, such as dense landscaping, conservation areas and a tranquil lagoon amongst village style homes, offering approximately 3,000-4,000 square foot floor plans.
If you’ve ever wished for just one more day of vacation, a home in the Golden Oak Community may be the perfect fit for you. Visit the Golden Oak website for more information or contact us to visit this exquisite property. And remember, dreams really do come true!
