1. Why Stay At Four Seasons Hotels?
Oh my goodness, there are many, many reasons to book hotels that are part of the Four Seasons brand. Of course, room rates are expensive when compared to more middle-of-the-road hotels, but the Four Seasons beats almost every other hotel chain in ambiance, immaculate communal areas, incredible service, and gorgeous rooms. They are also brilliant at catering to families in a sophisticated but caring way. Four Seasons hotels really are worth paying the extra for. Wherever you are in the world, Four Seasons hotels are reliably excellent, and they are consistently one of your best hotel options in any city or resort.
The bottom line is that Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort is simply unbeatable in terms of luxury when compared to the other Walt Disney World® Resorts.
Four Seasons Resort Orlando is nestled within the 47 square miles of Walt Disney World®. It is tucked away in the secluded millionaires’ row of Golden Oaks. This is easily the very best and most luxurious hotel within Walt Disney World®, in our opinion, but you need to take their complimentary luxury shuttle to get to the parks.
3. Ambiance & Style
Four Seasons Orlando is, well, Four Seasons in style and ambiance. The look of the buildings has a Spanish or Italian feel with tropical grounds. The entire complex is an oasis of calm and the perfect escape from the frenetic theme parks.
This lakeside haven has extensive gardens, pools, and towering pillars of palms and cypress. Tee off at the exclusive Four Seasons Golf and Sports Club Orlando, splash around with the kids at Explorer Island, treat yourself to a soothing, post-park massage at The Spa, or toast the evening fireworks with dinner at the rooftop steakhouse Capa. The resort is classy, contemporary, and tropical. It feels stylish. Four Seasons wins, in our opinion.
5. Water Park
Four Seasons has a five-acre water park with splash zones, interactive fountains, water slides, and pools for kids and grown-ups alike. An attentive poolside service includes towels, lounger pillows, suncream, and pitchers of iced water.
Highlights include two elegant infinity pools, one for the family and one for adults only, splashing around in the winding lazy river, two exhilarating water slides, and weekly Dive-In Movies at the family pool, which also has zero walk in water, so it is ideal for any age! In fact, the pools are one of the biggest reasons to stay here. The lazy river sparkles and is never crowded, with giant waterfalls. It just floats you along.. so relaxing!
The adult pool is a quiet oasis with a hot tub and lounge chairs. It’s a completely peaceful and marvelous haven of escape. Crucially, wherever you go on the grounds, it is never too crowded, even when the hotel is full.
6. Room For The Whole Family
Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort has room for the entire family with King or two double-bedded rooms. King-bedded rooms have one queen-size sofabed. Park View Rooms, Four Seasons Rooms, Golden Oak Rooms, and Lake View Rooms are all 500 sq. ft. (46 m2) and take 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children (ages 0–18).
7. Room Size And Quality
Clearly, even the Four Seasons’ base room is larger than the standard or deluxe room at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, which is your next best luxury option.
If you can, splurge for a Park View Room at the Four Seasons on the 6th to 16th floor, which will give you views of the Nightly Magic Kingdom® Park fireworks display. Other rooms overlook the Golden Oak properties or the surrounding lake and do not have a direct view out onto this wonderful spectacle.
9. Rate Advice
Golden Oak View rooms are cheaper and the same in square footage as those with views of the fireworks, so you might feel the premium “view rooms” are not worth paying for. Golden Oak View rooms are lovely, and you can always watch the fireworks from the 14th floor of the hotel from the communal hotel balcony.
If you want more space, go for a Golden Oak View Suite. They are magnificent with a larger bedroom space and a separate living area with a pull-out sofa. Some rooms have a bathtub by a window, which offers a gorgeous view while you’re bathing.
If you prefer to escape the Disney madness, Four Seasons provides sophisticated fine dining. There are seven dining and lounge options here. All are great. Ravello has its own bar and celebrates fresh Italian food and cocktails. The pool bar PB&G offers light bites. There is a coffee bar, plus the golf clubhouse has a restaurant open for lunch.
The rooftop restaurant Capa is the place to go if you don’t have a room with a fireworks view. This restaurant is on the roof, and from here, you can watch the nightly Disney fireworks.
