It is easy to get to Celebration from Orlando International Airport. Here are directions from 417 and I-4, two major expressways:
417: This is the way that I recommend. You will pay a total of $3.75 in tolls (have 75 cents in change available), but this is typically the least congested route. At the airport, follow the signs for the South Exit of the airport. The entrance ramp will be on your right after you leave airport property. Go onto 417 South and follow it to the Celebration exit. You will pay two one-dollar and 50 cent tolls at manned toll boothes and one seventy five cent toll at the exit (you must have exact change). When you exit, stay to your left at the stop light. Make a left, which will put you onto Celebration Avenue. Stay in the right lane unless you are going to North Village because it will turn into a left-turn-only lane very quickly. Follow Celebration Avenue right into town. When you reach the stop signs, you will see the downtown area on your left. If you keep following Celebration Avenue, you will pass through Main Village, South Village, the edge of East Village, and end up in Artisan Park.
528 to I-4: At $2.25 in tolls, this way is cheaper than 417, but the traffic can be much worse during the day. Follow the signs for the North Exit of the airport. Go onto 528 West and stay on it to I-4 West (Tampa). Follow I-4 to the Celebration exit, which will be just past the Disney World exits. When you exit, stay to your right. After you pass the expressway ramps, you will see a white fence on your right. The stop light will be Celebration Boulevard. Turn right onto Celebration Blvd. and make a left where it ends at the office buildings. Drive around the buildings and make a right onto Celebration Avenue. Stay in the right lane unless you are going to North Village because it will turn into a left-turn-only lane very quickly. Follow Celebration Avenue right into town. When you reach the stop signs, you will see the downtown area on your left. If you keep following Celebration Avenue, you will pass through Main Village, South Village, East Village, and end up in Artisan Park.
If there is no traffic, both of the above routes will get you to Celebration in 30 minutes or less.
Celebration can also be easily reached from 192, the "tourist strip" of the Kissimmee area. It is between the Old Town amusement area and I-4. When you see the white fence, you will know that you are close. You can enter Celebration by the Celebration Place office buildings or at the Celebration Avenue Entrance by the Water Tower shopping area (look for the Water Tower as your landmark).
You can also reach Celebration from Disney World via World Center Drive. Go past the entrance ramp for I-4 and to the end of World Center Drive. Make a left onto Celebration Boulevard and follow it under you see the Sienna condos. Watch on your right for Waterside and make a right onto Waterside. Take it to Celebration Avenue and make a left to head downtown or a right to heard towards South Village and Artisan Park.
