Abstract
This project is about the town of Celebration, Florida, a planned community constructed by the Walt Disney Company adjacent to Walt Disney World in Orlando. The town picks up on the original idea that Walt Disney had for a utopian community to be called the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow. But instead of looking to the future for its structure and design as Walt envisioned it would, Celebration has been constructed by his successors to resemble a community out of history. It is Disney's paean to the American past, a two and one half billion dollar nostalgic look backward at the American small town.
