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
This was our third family stay at a Four Seasons property, but our first at the FS Orlando. It's by far best hotel on Disney grounds--including the best hotel for KIDS. (We've stayed at ALL of the Disney Deluxe resorts).
We were transferring from Bay Lake Tower, as a surprise from me to my husband for his birthday and our anniversary. Our room was ready upon our arrival (10:00 a.m.) and we were also granted late check out (3 p.m.) on the last day, with access to all amenities and to the late departure lounge. As with all FS resorts, our children were given small gifts at the front desk and in the room. After returning from the parks in the afternoon on our first day, we were surprised with a bottle of prosecco and chocolate-dipped strawberries and a lovely opera cake, all accompanied by birthday and anniversary well wishes written in chocolate.
The room was exceptional in layout and luxuriously furnished. (Bonus points for the Nespresso machine!) We had more than enough space for our family's suitcases in the walk-thru closet. The bathroom was thoughtfully designed as well.
We ate at PB&G, Ravello's, Lickity Split, and Capa. While the prices were on the higher side, the quality was outstanding. For the money, it's the best Character Breakfast in all of Disney. We were also delighted by our dinner at Capa. The server was both knowledgeable and gracious to our children (ages 6 and 11). (And WOW to the view!)
For families who feel like the Disney Deluxe resorts are high on price but low on value and service, trust me when I say that you can do MUCH better--and get more for your money--at the Four Seasons. Can't wait to return.
Amazing stay. Delicious food, wonderful staff, excellent resort amenities.
I arrived early, and the room wasn't quite ready, but the staff helpfully took my bag and I had a coffee in the lobby coffee shop. Shortly thereafter, I got a text message to let me know the room was available.
The room itself was spectacular. Gorgeous furnishings, enormous bathroom with amazing closet, and top notch linens and bath products. Truly luxurious in every sense.
The resort was very well thought out with a separate adult and family pool areas.
The food was excellent with a price to match, but no disappointment in terms of quality.
A memorable stay.
The staff is exceptional, friendly and attentive. The facility is also inviting, clean, and top notch. The food at Plancha was very yummy. The weather, which cannot be controlled by the hotel, was very wet and humid.
This resort was absolutely perfect. From the time we checked in and checked out, we were made to feel welcomed and taken very good care of. The room was amazing. The most comfortable bed !! The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. The pool area for children was amazing.
This is our second stay since December. We stayed five nights this trip and enjoyed everything about our stay. We have 2 sons ages 7 and 17 and they love it here. The rooms are well appointed and have everything you need. All of the staff are genuinely friendly and ready to assist you in any way. The grounds are beautiful, the entire hotel is immaculate and well maintained. All of the meals we ate on property were great. We ate at Ravello twice and PB&G, we also had gelato and cookies at Lickety Split. I do wish that Lickety Split had larger cups of coffee!! We didn’t eat at Capo this trip, but we had a great meal there last time. The service at the pool is exceptional, a big thank you to Ruben, Bobby and Andrew for taking such good care of our family. I also want to acknowledge Marina who assisted us at check-in, she went above and beyond in assisting us with our room location and getting us in a room that had the larger balcony that we requested, thank you! One more staff member that stood out to us was Olga in housekeeping, she always had our room clean and knowing that we had children with us she always left us extra towels and toiletries and she was so sweet. It was wonderful being able to return to this beautiful and peaceful resort after a long day at the park and relax by the pool. We have stayed at all of the Disney “deluxe” resorts and none of them compare to the Four Seasons in any way. As other reviews posted, you pay a premium to stay here, but it is worth it. We found our home away from home when visiting the parks.
