If you find yourself wanting to escape the chain restaurants and tourist traffic of the outskirts of Disney, check out the small town of Lake Nona. In just 25 minutes from the Celebration/Lake Buena Vista area, you can find a slice of the Orlando authenticity you’re looking for (minus the Mickey ears).
