For many first time visitors to the Town of Celebration, they aren’t quite sure what to make of it. White picket fences, perfectly manicured lawns, families on evening bike rides, it sounds ideal, doesn’t it? If you like living on a movie set, or as many refer to it, The Stepford Wives. You have to remember though, the Town of Celebration was built by the Walt Disney World Company back in the 90’s, and what is Disney if not the picture of perfection?
Walt Disney’s idea for Celebration was to make it indistinguishable from any other small town in the USA.
I find it quaint and picturesque and a place you should definitely see for yourself. Plus, it’s only about 10 minutes from the gates of Walt Disney World and has some incredible restaurants, so why not take a detour?
The most recent spot to open up is Celebration Tea Room.
They have an extensive menu of teas, sandwiches, soups and desserts, ideal for a quiet afternoon.
The rich decor transports you to another time and place and forces you to sit back and relax, something hard to find in the tourism capital of the world.
For those of you who are fans of Alice in Wonderland, the private room will give you all the feels. It’s so quirky and whimsical. I was just waiting for Tweedledee and Tweedledum to pop out. Hey, it’s close enough to Disney, it could happen.
Enjoy a spot of tea and a scone or two at Celebration Tea Room 🙂

well – it looks different… built in the 90s? so perhaps a little surreal?

It’s very surreal. Honestly feels like walking through a movie set.
