You've probably seen the signs around Walt Disney World property that say RCID. Maybe you even know that RCID stands for "Reedy Creek Improvement District."

Golden Oak

Posted on
Golden Oak is a community of new homes located at the north end of Disney property. The entrance is off of Vista Boulevard (just east of the Fort Wilderness Campground). The 980-acre community (when finished) will feature the world's largest Four Seasons Resort (444 guest rooms) surrounded by approximately 450 single-family luxury homes. Connecting the various neighborhoods and the hotel will be recreational pathways, footbridges, parks, and gardens, all surrounded by undisturbed natural forest. The master-plan was developed by Walt Disney Imagineering. Although Disney will maintain the day-to-day operation of the community, the land was de-annexed from Reedy Creek and residents will be part of Orange County. Homes and lots are purchased with full ownership. Prices range from $1.5 million to $8 million.
