Four Seasons Resort Orlando has been amplifying Disney trips for years now—see exactly what all the hype is about.
Wish granted! Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers families an elevated and enchanting way to experience the happiest place on earth.
It is an undeniable rite of passage that all parents must grin and bear. But what if there was a way to wave a magic wand and experience Disney with more magic—and fewer hassles or headaches?
Since opening in 2014, Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort has been making that wish come true for families who sought something that enchanted both children and their parents alike.
Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers a variety of sprawling suites to accommodate families in style.
Being named the first and only AAA Five Diamond resort in Orlando and the No. 1 ranked Orlando hotel by U.S. News & World Report, the sprawling property spans an impressive 26 acres and boasts a private 5-acre water park complete with slide and lazy river, five pools including an adults-only pool, an 18- room spa, a Tom Fazio golf course, three Har-Tru tennis courts, six restaurants, a Disney Planning Center—and the requisite character breakfast done Four Seasons style. (No frozen Mickey waffles here, thank you very much. The vibe is more James Beard-nominated pastry chef.)
Offering complimentary shuttles, the resort is just minutes from the four main Disney World parks. A dedicated Disney desk can advise on everything from the nuances of navigating various attractions to arranging tickets and passes.
Luxe lounges at the on-site water park
After you have had your fill at the parks, there is plenty on property to keep all ages entertained. The resort’s Explorer Island and family-friendly programming blend both the luxury one expects from the Four Seasons team (delicious dining, impeccable service) with fun, only-in-Orlando flourishes like waterslides, climbing walls, sports centers and outdoor movie nights. Instead of fighting the crowds at the park until dusk, enjoy Magic Kingdom’s nightly fireworks display from either the terrace of your newly renovated suite or the resort’s rooftop restaurant, Capa, and toast having made a magical memory that was truly enjoyed by all.
The resort’s relationship with Disney means there is plenty of magic on property.
Book a Disney Private VIP Tour to truly unlock the magic.
Want to sprinkle some serious pixie dust on your trip? Booking Disney’s Private VIP Tour unlocks more than merely skipping lines. With prices ranging from $425 to $850 per hour with a seven-hour minimum (in addition to park entry costs), Disney’s Private VIP Tours provide up to 10 guests hours of expertly guided time with a cast member. The hours and hassle saved means you can often fit more than one park in a day. Today, these experienced magic-makers (in their signature plaid vests) will pick you up in a private vehicle and zip you through the over-an-hour waits at Space Mountain, backstage shortcuts, share tidbits of Disney history and insider intel, arrange for perfectly timed dining so you don’t miss a moment of fun— and have chilled bottles of water and Mickey ice cream bars on hand at the perfect moment. Disney Private VIP Tours book far in advance so plan ahead by calling 407.560.4033 or visiting disneyworld.disney.go.com/events-tours/vip-tours
