11 Great Neighborhoods: Dr. Phillip’s Phillips Landing


From the early 1920s through the development of Walt Disney World in the late 1960s, the Dr. Phillips area was defined by its thousands of acres of citrus groves. Longtime residents fondly recall the intoxicating scent of orange blossoms wafting through the air each spring. Today, locals still appreciate the landscape, including the Butler Chain of Lakes, sprawling golf courses, and neighborhoods catering to a wide range of family sizes. “It’s been a great community to raise a family, with great public and private schools to choose from,” says Richard J. Snyder Sr., a Dr. Phillips resident since 1984. “It’s perfectly situated to commute to work by jumping on I-4 or the Turnpike.” Snyder also appreciates the diversity of the community and his supportive neighbors. Today, Dr. Phillips offers plenty of ways to enjoy the Central Florida lifestyle, mixed with the memories of childhood. And even though some parts have changed and developed through time, a few orange groves remain. If you drive down one of the back roads and pay attention, you can still catch their sweet scent lingering in the air.
