Hi Bethany,
I too have a great love for all things Disney and Disney’s new Golden Oak community is going to be amazing. If you are seriously interested in purchasing a home there you will need to act quickly. There is a $25,000 fee just to reserve your spot and I have three of Disney’s presale agents on my speed dial for three of my clients that have already registered there. There is a lot release form that you are required to fill out and there is also a new home buyer questionnaire and a registration form which I can send to you via email. Please contact me privately and I can go over the whole process start to finish. There are about 30 lots available for the initial phase but most are already purchased and there is a waiting lottery so you should get started quickly if you are serious about buying. This is an investment / vacation home / home owner opportunity of a lifetime as this is Disney’s first real estate build for single family homes on WDW Resort property. Feel free to read up more about Disney’s Golden Oak on my website where you will find most of the info you need on the project and be sure to sign up for my newsletter with up to the minute info for eager buyers! I am a registered sales associate with Disney Golden Oak and a part of their broker referral program so I have all the info you need for your Disney Magical Mansion as well as videos of the site plan, maps, and contact info for the community.

Good job Melissa, got a thumbs up from me, and good luck to you Bethany.

To anyone who happens by this question note that the FIRST STEP is that you need to give Disney $25,000 just to get on the lottery list. (Sounds like Reunion and Bella Collina all over again, doesn't it. But this time it's Disney so hopefully it will turn out better.)

Here's the direct link to Disney's site on Golden Oak: http://disneygoldenoak.disney.go.com/

Anyone who wants to live the Disney life style and save a million dollars or more would do well to consider Disney World's original community -- Celebration, which was also built inside the original boundaries.

Good luck,
Mark LeMenager

Hi Bethany,

This is Daisy Kong from Trulia’s PR team. A reporter at a large newspaper wants to know if you had moved forward with your home search and if you’re currently living in Golden Oaks. If yes, would you be open to sharing her story with him/her?

First find a real estate agent that represents you. A good one who isn't in the business just for money. You can start by asking a friend for a referral, or check out Trulia for Pro's or ViP status agents.

My mother and father in law are realtors who live in nearby Celebration ( which was also planned by Disney many years ago). I would highly recommend them to be anyone's agent for Disney's Golden Oak or for nearby Celebration. They are some of the kindest, most knowledgeable, and conscientious realtors you will ever meet!

A link to their Golden Oak page with more info:

They will be there for you throughout the entire process, helping you choose the best lot, picking the right builder, and being there to watch every step of the building process ( sending you photos and video) for you until you are ready to move in.

Hello Bethany! I am a registered agent with Disney Golden Oaks. I can assist you with your registration and potential purchase. Since this is to be a huge investment, I highly suggest you research your agent carefully and not choose the first person that happens to answer. If it were me I would seek out an agent with at least 10 years of experience and who has a solid resume. Many agents tend to jump from office to office which shows a lack of stability in their career. You will also want to make sure they are a PRC certified agent. Only a PRC certified agent has been background check for ethical, criminal and civil wrong doing. You would research your doctor or attorney, make sure you fully research your agent.

If you would like the assistance of a full-time, PRC certified agent , CENTURY 21 agent; please feel free to contact me directly. I encourage you to review my credentials and go to my website to learn more about what a PRC agent really is. I have also linked it below. I look forward to hearing from you.
