In the heart of the festive season with holiday fantasies at an annual high, I thought it would be fun to take a look at Celebration, Florida, the planned community that Disney unveiled in 1994. An archetypal hometown USA circa 1940, Celebration represents the American small-town dream.
Between Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve, Now Snowing Nightly, an hourly, after dinner snowfall created with artificial snow machines, transforms Celebration into a winter wonderland without the cold and no danger of frost bite under the warm Florida skies.
In Celebration, retail outlets are modeled after traditional stores in small American towns. For group dining, select from traditional American fare and steaks to seafood, Italian, Spanish/Cuban cuisine, tapas, and sushi. For a special treat, Misty Blue Acres Carriage offers traditional horse and buggy rides on the weekend and for special events.
