Celebration, FL

So last month we checked into Walt Disney's Utopia - Celebration, FL. Built to house families of Walt Disney World staffers, this quaint town had everything a movie set would want - an old fashioned ice cream parlour and movie theater, a hotel on the lake, white picket fences, and lots of families. Though only there for a short time, getting together with the wedding community in this town outside of Orlando was quite a treat. If you make it to Orlando, take a trip out of town and down memory lane.

And a special thanks to folks at The Celebration Hotel for welcoming us to your home!
