First Look at the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Park Inside Walt Disney World’s Golden Oak Residential Community

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Park Inside Disney's Golden Oak Subdivision - DisneyEveryDay.com

(Click image above to enlarge)

There are places within Walt Disney World that every Disneyphile wants to go that are somewhat “off limits”. The second floor of the Imagination Pavilion in Epcot, the utilidors under the Magic Kingdom, Club 33 in Disneyland, the Cinderella Castle Suite and of course through the gates of Golden Oak. Many of you have dreamed of winning the lottery and commissioning Issa Homes to build you a palatial estate within the Most Magical Place on Earth.

Thankfully the Four Seasons Resort is almost completed and will be welcoming guests soon. Where is the new Four Seasons? Inside the gates of Golden Oak. What does that mean? Very soon Disneyphiles will be booking rooms and dinners at the resort for a chance to drive past those massive gates.

Yesterday I attended a media preview at the Four Seasons Resort and drove into Golden Oak for the very first time. I was literally giddy! There are a few finished communities and one that is currently under construction. You can see an aerial site map of Golden Oak here.

After leaving the Four Seasons, I took the opportunity to drive through the one neighborhood that was still under construction that did not have a locked gate and this is what I found…thanks to a little help from a friend.

Just a lil community park with a water feature…and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. If you were a resident of Golden Oak, how many hours would you spend just sitting here?
