Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort is a residential community within the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering and is 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 in 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.[1]

Overview[edit]

The community was announced on June 23, 2010 through the official Disney Parks Blog.

Neighborhoods[edit]

Golden Oak has several neighborhoods dedicated to different eras of architecture.

Kimball Trace[edit]

Based on Tuscan architecture, with houses ranging in size between 3,000 sq ft (280 m2) and 5,000 sq ft (460 m2) square feet.[2]

Silverbrook[edit]

Houses here range from 5,000 sq ft (460 m2) to 7,000 sq ft (650 m2) square feet.[3]

Carolwood[edit]

Carolwood is located at the northernmost part of the development. The largest houses are located here.[4]

The name Carolwood is taken from Walt Disney's private railroad, which was built before Disneyland and its perimeter railroad opened in 1955.

Marceline[edit]

Marceline includes two parks and houses ranging between 3,800 sq ft (350 m2) and 6,000 sq ft (560 m2) square feet.[5] The neighborhood is named after Walt Disney's hometown of Marceline, Missouri.
