    “The world you have entered was created by the Walt Disney Company & is dedicated to Hollywood - not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream & wonder & imagine, a place where illusion & reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was -
    and always will be.”

    I know some people who live in Celebration. They love the place.

    Disney World's (now extinct) Treasure Island could be accessed by either taking a direct motor launch from a resort dock or as part the "Walt Disney World Cruise" (a tour of the Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake that stopped at the island).
