    I know people will say Im mad, but I really like Celebration perhaps the rules would become painful but I've had enough of the real world, give me a fantasy village and that's fine

    We looked at the option to buy a place in Celebration before we bought our place at Sandy Ridge Keith.
    Apart from the high cost of the property there, we were also unable to purchase because you had to stay there for a minimum of 7 months each year. This was to discourage folks from buying a rental home at Celebration, and seeing as us Brits can only be in the U.S. for a maximum of 6 months every year then it was definately a no no!
    There were a load of rules as you say...no leaving washing out to dry, grass in your lawn to be at at a maximum length etc.etc.. It really did seem like you were in a film studio, or at least in the "Village" as per the Prisoner!

    We love Sandy Ridge anyhow as it is in a conservation area with loads of wild life around... birds, armadillos, wild boar etc.etc. It is very quiet yet only a short drive from the hussle & bussle of WDW.

    We never intended to live in Central Florida, but are happy to call Winter Garden home, now.

    Winter Park has some fierce taxes, and terrible congestion!

    Celebration? Nope. Reality intrudes with all the rules, regulations and more homeowner association fees that you'd care to know about.

    The trick of living in Florida is choosing a place that isn't overloaded with fees and that you don't need to have a gate guard for protection. ;)

    Slowhand, the area where your home is, is beautiful and serene. Hopefully, it will stay that way, eh?






    Welcome to our new home! It's a lovely and friendly place. If you haven't joined yet, do register. It's a great place to make friends and share all those Disney secrets!!

    I agree with Slowhand - Sandy Ridge area is beautiful. If we are staying there, at night on our way back, we drive real slow so we can spot any creatures that may be around. Love it :D
