Got a million? Buy a house in Disney World

23 June 2010 by Julianne Pepitone, staff reporter

NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Mickey Mouse is about to welcome a bunch of new neighbors. Disney unveiled a luxury residential community on Wednesday, with about 30 homes currently for sale at the Disney World resort in Florida.

The community, called Golden Oak, sprawls across 980 acres and features single-family custom homes for between $1.5 and $8 million.

Families who plunk down cash to live near Mickey and friends will have access to a private clubhouse, concierge service, a planned Four Seasons resort, a full service spa, a golf course and more.

The luxury homes are being built in phases, and the first wave will feature three options.

Village Homes "will capture the romantic look of a Mediterranean village" on one-quarter of an acre of land, Disney said; Estate Homes will be on one-half acre with "a variety of construction styles"; and Grand Estate homes, designed for large families, include up to three-quarters of an acre.

Disney is now accepting refundable $25,000 deposits, with the first homes available in 2011. Golden Oak will eventually include about 450 homes
