Celebration Town Center, Kissimmee, Orlando FL

Description

I had been curious about Celebration for years, thinking it would be like Disneyworld for living in. But it's really just a fairly plain neighborhood of 1990s homes made mostly of wood. They are New England in style but not overly colorful like one would expect from Disney. The colors are subdued actually.
The main street, Market Street, has a row of sidewalk cafes that lead down to the small lake. Here the buildings are a little more colorful. On Front St, there are also plenty of restaurants, and a nice Starbucks with outdoor seating situated around a tree. The lake has wooden adirondack chairs shaded by green umbrellas around its cement shore. This area is pretty enough.
We ate at a bakery, Sweet Escape, that served standard American-style sandwiches with tons of mayonnaise. There is nothing really modern, chic, or European about this area.
Driving out of Celebration, you are in Kissimmee, so you are in an area that was historically cleared for cattle farming and is therefore very plain and flat, with few trees.
For a great playground with a space net, rock-climbing wall, tire swing, and see saw, check out Spring Park Playground.
If you want something chic and upscale, check out Winter Park, my favorite part of Orlando.
