I had been curious about Celebration for years, thinking it would be like Disney World for living in. But it's really just a neighborhood of pretty homes built around 1995. They are New England in style but not overly colorful like one would expect from Disney. Trees abound which makes it a lovely town for long walks.

The main street, Market Street, has a row of sidewalk cafes that lead down to the lake. Here the buildings are a little more colorful. Cornerstone Market and Deli has nice breakfast bagels, and seating outside. Market Street Gallery is a gift shop with a great toy section- it's worth checking out! On Sundays from 9-2 there is a farmers market that takes up the entire street. 
On Front St, which borders the lake, there are also plenty of restaurants, and a nice Starbucks with outdoor seating situated around a tree. The lake has wooden adirondack chairs shaded by green umbrellas around its cement shore. Here you can sit on the cement steps and enjoy an ice cream cone from Kilwin's, across the street. The chocolate ice cream is delicious- not too sweet. Across the street from Kilwin's is a splash pad, on the promenade. It is fun for kids, and lit up gorgeously at night. Many tourists and residents hang out at the lake every night, so it's a fun atmosphere.
There are many walking paths in Celebration that are beautiful. You can walk 1.3 miles from Celebration Lakeside Park to East Crescent Park, in the shade along the lake, sometimes taking wooden boardwalks through the jungly areas. You will likely see baby alligators and birds.
Driving out of Celebration, you are in Kissimmee, so you are in an area that was historically cleared for cattle farming and is therefore very plain and flat, with few trees.
For a great playground with a space net, rock-climbing wall, tire swing, and see saw, check out Spring Park Playground.
The houses in Celebration are always decked out in decorations depending on the season or holiday. It's wonderful to walk around during Christmastime, Halloween, Memorial Day, and check out the colorful decorations. 
If you want a European-style town center that is chic and upscale, check out Park Ave in Winter Park, another charming part of Orlando.
