Within the gates of the Walt Disney World Resort, the Four Seasons Resort Orlando is the sophisticated pick for families and couples seeking a Disney adventure. All 443 guestrooms (including 68 suites) are huge, apartment-like spaces done up in a grown-up cream, coffee and teal palette, with one King or two Double beds, flat-screen TVs, coffee- and tea-makers, in-room dining and movies on demand. The full marble bathrooms have both deep soaking tubs and oversize glass-walled showers. At 500 square feet, they all feel spacious enough for the two adults and two children permitted in each room. Park View Rooms are worth the splurge for the dead-on views of the nightly Magic Kingdom Park fireworks display. Dining options range from Italian favorites and a hearty breakfast buffet at Ravello to unforgettable steak dinners at the rooftop Capa, where the hottest table is on the open patio looking out at the fireworks display. There’s also Southern-inspired cuisine on offer at the indoor/outdoor PB&G and Cuban fare at Plancha, inside the golf clubhouse. Part of the Tom Fazio–designed Tranquilo Golf Club at Four Seasons Resort Orlando, it’s just one of the resort’s parent-friendly amenities, which include a world class spa, tennis courts, a fitness center and an adults-only infinity pool (with a jacuzzi, cabanas and a lakeside location). For youngsters there’s the five-acre Explorer Island water park, a free kids camp with a game room, a climbing wall and a playground, and poolside movie screenings each Saturday night. Not to mention Walt Disney World Resort itself, which is just a short shuttle ride from the hotel’s door.
In the Area
The Walt Disney World Resort‘s mega-attractions range from water slides and roller coasters to live shows, theme restaurants and a World Showcase replicating 11 nations of the world. The park’s Downtown Disney attraction is free to enter and offers its own take on entertainment, including a House of Blues music venue, a Cirque du Soleil theater and a bowling alley on steroids. Beyond the park gates, browse the shiny wares at popular shopping centers such as the Florida Mall (the state’s fifth-largest), the Mall at Millennia and Premium Outlets. For an easy day trip, Cocoa Beach holds the distinction of being Orlando’s closest strand.
How to Get There
Our room was very nice. We asked to be located to see the water which we could if we stood up but could not see much when seated on balcony due to tall concrete wall. Service was great, hotel staff did things with a smile--like they enjoyed their job. On check out day, a zip lock bag was provided for liquids and all our computer cords etc. neatly placed in a tie.
Well taken care of here. Everyone acknowledges you and the staff takes care of even the smallest details. Balcony view was very nice with the ability to lounge privately outside. This trip was for business and both the grounds and the hotel itself were impeccable.
Super expensive for a very average hotel. We upgraded our room and it was nothing special. The lobby was very basic, nothing stood out as worth the cost of the hotel. It was my birthday and I was given a chip to get a gelato. They could have done a number of things to acknowledge my 50th birthday but that is what they chose. That was disappointing and insulting after what we paid to have a special celebration.
