[QUOTE=Dopey;1027732]I thought that Celebration already belonged to another company. What am I thinking?[/QUOTE]
If I remember correctly (from when we were looking for our house in Orlando last year) there is a management company that “runs” the city but is over scene by the HOA/town government (I think they are one in the same).
Disney stepped away from Celebration a number of years ago.
IMO Celebration is a flop. It really is just a nice subdivision with shopping. The original idea was walkable city. The original idea was a test case for new urbanism but it got water down because it was pretty far ahead of the curve…so they ended up with nice subdivision with shopping.
Another botched attempted of new urbanism in Orlando is Baldwin Park. It is a lot like Celebration but has a better denser center with a number of shops (like Publix, CVS, Five Guys, etc), offices, and medical as well as Apartment and condos in the center.
If I had to pick between the 2 I would pick Baldwin Park because for day to day living you have better access to places you would use as a resident.
