Downtown Disney Resort Area
Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort is a luxury residential resort community within the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering and will be owned and operated by a newly formed Disney subsidiary, Golden Oak Realty. The first phase of development is located southeast of the Magic Kingdom Park and Bay Lake. The area was named to pay homage to Walt Disney's Golden Oak Ranch in California. The first few home sites were available for purchase in late 2010 and completed in late 2011.
The community was announced on June 23, 2010 through the official Disney Parks Blog. Golden Oak offers custom single-family homes and estates priced from $1.8 million, featuring themes such as Spanish, Mediterranean and Colonial. Residents will have access to certain amenities at the nearby Four Seasons Resort Orlando planned to open Summer 2014 (also within the Walt Disney World Resort). These include a full-service spa, restaurants, and a golf course.
