Wait — You Can Live at Walt Disney World?
If you've always dreamed of living in Cinderella's castle, we can't help you . . . but here's something that's almost as good. Fans can call Walt Disney World home, thanks to the resort's Golden Oak housing community. Located on the Orlando Disney resort property, Golden Oak offers residents the type of luxury fit for fairy-tale princesses — at a cost, of course. The current homes on sale at Golden Oak start at $2.5 million, which doesn't include the cost of VIP Disney benefits available to residents. Every floor plan in the community has at least 2,298 square feet, ensuring (in typical Disney style) that family always comes first.
While the prices are steep and the homes are gigantic, Golden Oak is a great option for many serious Disney-lovers. Residents of the community enjoy the perk of a special resident pass, which grants unlimited access to every Disney World park and water park for a year, FastPass bookings, admission to Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, ESPN Sports Complex, and even a complimentary shuttle from the neighborhood to each area of the resort. That's not the only benefit that residents are offered, of course — Golden Oak buyers have a premiere concierge service at their disposal, residents-only park events, and a private clubhouse that rivals the resort itself.
If this community sounds like a dream come true, take a look at the seven Golden Oak neighborhoods and see for yourself. Based on the photos below, Disney Golden Oak is the perfect addition to the most magical place on earth.
