The closest thing to living in a Disney bubble

Imagine living in a community of Victorian houses, with music from the 50s as the soundtrack, happy neighbors and children playing in the streets under the tutelage of a “Disney world”. It is not that you have to display your imagination too much to know what it would be like. Actually, there is a Disney neighborhood embodied in the state of Florida.

About ten kilometers from Disneyland in Orlando, Celebration has been established since 1996, an urban experiment planned entirely by The Walt Disney Company with a premise that invites us to an ideal world:

“Once upon a time there was a place where neighbors greeted each other on a quiet summer evening, where children chased fireflies, and where porches provided a welcoming refuge from daily worries.”

In total, 9,500 people reside in Celebration in an area where everything is thought out down to the smallest detail: public areas are designed to fit pedestrians and not cars, songs from the 50s play on the loudspeakers, at Christmas, Christmas carols.

And even if it’s not too cold in Florida, on the main street of Celebration there is no shortage of artificial snow simulation with soap bubbles for children to have fun on Thanksgiving and New Year’s days, while their parents do the shopping in select stores with no supermarkets or fast food outlets in sight.

Everything was thought out in every detail by those responsible for the Disney company. In the residential neighborhoods, each house maintains an appearance that cannot be changed, under strict regulations: Victorian, coastal and Mediterranean house models but always with a retro air. The appearance of each one of them cannot depart from the regulations that determine the possible colors, the height of the fences, the gardens.

Celebration is a neighborhood that simulates a “fantasy world”, and in practice, it has also meant another good deal: the price of homes is well above the Florida average, all despite the fact that you also have to pay a cost monthly to cover the expenses of maintenance and cleaning of the neighbourhood. It is the price of living in a place where there has only been one robbery in its entire history. It can be said that it is a dream place.
