Its time for a little Disney Daydreaming again here at Odysseys With Love. Golden Oak at Walt Disney World has been a dream of ours for a while now and with the Mega Millions reaching 970 Million for the drawing tonight, I wanted to share a little bit of information that I have uncovered lately about the Happiest Place On Earth and living there.Â
In the past, I have shared some information about different things in regards to Disney and Golden Oak at Walt Disney World, and with me Daydreaming again, knowing (Power of Attraction) I am going to win the Mega Millions Lottery, why not share my wealth of knowledge I have learned. From Golden Oak to the Four Seasons Residences, there is something here for everyone to learn.Â
What is Golden Oak at Walt Disney World?
“Welcome to a world embraced by luxury, privacy, and the Magic of Disney. This magnificent resort community offers first-ever who ownership of custom single-family homes at Walt Disney World Resort.”
The above quote is from Golden Oak at Walt Disney World’s website. I have to say it really is a luxury and private community, as not many of the residents are talking about living on Walt Disney Worlds property. That’s right, Golden Oak at Walt Disney World is on DISNEY PROPERTY!Â These homeowners have purchased land and homes that were Owned by Walt Disney himself! Disney still has a heavy hand in everything going on at Golden Oak and offers a lot of amenitiesÂ to their residents. These homes start at two million dollars and go up to 10 million.
Disney has advertised this community to an elite community, but does not mean that Disney Fans like myself have not heard of this community.Â
What Are Some Of the Amenities at Golden Oak at Walt Disney World?
This is the first question that I raised. Since Golden Oak is 980 acres in size and offers many different neighborhoods including the Four Seasons Orlando Private Residences, what did Golden Oak Offer to their homeowners. This called for a little detective work. Not really, I was able to view their Club Life Brochure and find out exactly what Golden Oak offers.Â
But First! What is the price of living at Golden Oak? Not only does the homes have a heftyÂ price tag, but there are fee’s associated with living at Golden Oak. From what I have been able to uncover, Golden Oak’s HOA dues are around $25,000 yearly. So what is included with this?
“Nothing can compare to living the magic – and membership in the Golden Oak Club is one of the fantastic reasons why.Â
That’s because the Club is about having friends in fun places. Count on the Club for premier Disney-designed experiences and services at Golden Oak, Walt Disney World Resort and beyond.”
A little bit from the beginning of the Club Life Brochure. You can head over to Golden Oaks Website to view the brochure HERE.Â Â

First, let’s look at the Golden Oak Member Pass, Those that close on a new home by December 31, 2018, will receive up to five Member Passes for three years. Then if you need more member passes, you can purchase those through Club Member Services.
These passes are Disney Platinum Plus Pass, these normally range around $1,000 per pass. Plus the members receive five additional One-Day Theme park tickets with Park Hopper Plus Option. Residents are also able to book FastPass+ selectionsÂ up to 60 days in advance.Â
What Services come along with the Club Life Membership? The Summerhouse has a concierge-styleÂ and fee-based approach to fulfilling the request for the residents. Disney Parks and special event tickets, scheduling Private VIP tours, making dining reservations and spa reservations, helping coordinateÂ in-home dinner parties, and much more.Â
Some residents may opt for Disney InspiredÂ holiday decor and have Disneys lawn and home maintenance services.Â
Instead of riding on the busses to and from the parks and Disney Springs, Golden Oak Club members also have a shuttle and coach service they may use to get to and from the parks. This means being dropped right off at the main entrance of the parks!
Where do you go to get your Club Member Services? The Summerhouse. BUT! The Summerhouse isn’t just the home base for the Cast Members Concierge Team! You have Markham’s. The Dining room featuring five-star chefs and wonderful cuisine. Maybe you are looking to have a drink before dinner? Head into Tyler’s, the Club lounge. They are also opening Bolton’s this year. Their Facebook page updated on August 12th that it is quickly approaching their opening day.Â
Its not just a place to eat and have a drink at the Summerhouse. There is also a pool area, fitness room, and a family room.Â
Events and More at Golden Oak at Walt Disney World.
2018 was filled with events and activities for Golden Oak Residents. Some of my favorite to read about was Valentine’s Day Dinner, Mother’s Day Brunch, Dinner With Santa, and Christmas Eve Dinner.Â
Looking at the brochure, I also noted that Sunday Supper was also an option on select Sunday evenings.Â
PLUS RESIDENTS had an Enchanting Departure to Disneyland Resort and Southern California Adventures by Disney. Last year the residents were able to cruise the seas.Â
