Walt Disney’s Golden Oak Neighborhood

For the affluent Disney Fan, the gated Golden Oak neighborhood offers a lifestyle unlike any other in the world. To live among Walt Disney World property is a unique opportunity! Today we’ll breakdown the history of the neighborhood, the amenities, the fees, and what life is like living in Orlando’s most exclusive address.

How many homes are in Golden Oak? 

There’s a total of 299 homes spread across 8 neighborhoods. The neighborhoods include Carolwood, Kimball Trace, Kingswell, Marceline, Silverbrook, Symphony Grove, The Cottages at Symphony Grove, and the Four Seasons Private Residences.

The homes in the Cottages are the smallest yet most intricately finished homes on property. Where the Four Seasons Private Residences offer some of the largest estate options. Each home is uniquely named, designed, and finished.

What are the price ranges of homes in Golden Oak? 

The first home owners moved into Golden Oak in 2012. The first homes sold ranged from $1.2-1.4M Today homes range from just under $4M up to $16M. This depends on the size and location in the neighborhood.

What amenities are included in Golden Oak? 

The neighborhood itself offers incredible amenities. 

First off you have a ton of security. Not only is it double gated but it’s also patrolled 24/7. It’s double gated because the Four Seasons Resort is inside the neighborhood. You have a manned gate on Vista Blvd. Then you have automatic gates to get into the different sections of the neighborhood. Beyond security you have the Golden Oak Private Club. 

The Private Club (called the Summerhouse) offers a olympic sized heated swimming pool, state of the art gym, two restaurants (Markham’s and Bolton’s) which offer unique chef experiences and occasional character sightings, as well as Tylers Lounge (21 or older). 

One of my favorite perks is the concierge level service from the Club Member services team. Those include setting up your Disney Parks and special events tickets, park transportation, dining reservations, golf tee times, spa reservations, all the way to helping you with Disney inspired holiday decor. Some of these are fee based services (like home maintenance) others are at your service. 

Another Golden Oak Club perk is taking part of their social and recreational events. Get to know your neighbors and experience one of kind events that aren’t open to the general public. From beer with Gaston to unique chef pairings, you’ll take part truly one of a kind experiences right inside your own neighborhood. 

Lastly, you have access to community parks, and if you’re in the Four Seasons section, you have access to all the amenities at the resort itself! Complete with water park/lazy river and additional in-home services.

How much is the homeowners association in Golden Oak? 

There’s actually multiple fees associated with living in Golden Oak. Depending on where you live in the neighborhood. Here’s how it breaks down: 

  • Everyone pays a yearly $6,600 homeowners assessment 
  • Everyone is also required to join the Golden Oak Private Club at roughly $19,000 per year. 
  • Those who live in Marceline, Kimball Trace, or Symphony Grove have a $4200 yearly maintenance fee. That covers all your lawn and exterior maintenance. This offers some pretty hands off living. 
  • The Four Seasons Private Residences is the most expensive section of the neighborhood, but it also offers the most amenities. All in with the basic HOA, the Golden Oak Private Club fee, the Golf cart fee, and the Four Seasons Basic Service Fee, you’re looking at just over $40k/year.

Disney is simply the developer of the neighborhood. They partner with some of Orlando’s premier custom home builders to make these magical addresses come to life. Some of the builders are Phil Kean, Jones Clayton, ISSA Homes, Cahill Homes, and Stonebridge Homes. 

Do you get a Club 33 membership when you purchase a home? 

Although many homeowners in Golden Oak are Club 33 members, you don’t automatically get a membership to that exclusive club. 

Is Golden Oak a timeshare? 

It’s not! You actually own the land underneath your home fee simple. Just like any other neighborhood.
