Tucked away in the middle of the magic is a sanctuary . . . a “minimal not simple” retreat of elegance, peace, and luxury, where you can alternate tee times with spa appointments, relax in your choice of poolside cabanas, and enjoy award-winning cuisine any time day or night while the sweet sounds of nothing and nature entertain you.
What’s that? Doesn’t sound like your last visit to theWalt Disney World® Resort? Well then it’s time to experience the FOUR SEASONS ORLANDO.
. . .
. . .
. . .
Nestled between Disney’s Magic Kingdom® Park and EPCOT® theme parks, the Four Seasons Orlando is not only the newest, but perhaps, no definitely, the most exclusive resort within eyesight of Disney fireworks, delivering even more than what loyal Four Seasons guests have come to expect.
. . .
The Four Seasons Orlando has also been named the #1 Best Hotel in Orlando by U.S. News & World Report – for the fifth year in a row – so in terms of Orlando lodging . . . it’s kind of a big deal.
. . .
My daughter joined me for a chance to explore this big deal recently. This was actually her second visit having celebrated her 23rd birthday with an amazing “Sunset & Fireworks” culinary adventure at the resort’s 17th floor signature steakhouse, CAPA.
She summarized her take on the resort which is hidden behind the gates of the exclusive GOLDEN OAK neighborhood on Disney property . . .
It’s minimal, not simple.
Understatement of the year. It’s far from minimal OR simple. But I knew what she meant.
It’s not overdone or showy, it’s not over-the-top decorated or themed. And it’s not overrun with people.
This AAA Five Diamond Resort is a lakeside retreat complete with gardens, and walking paths spotted between private poolside cabanas, world-class dining, and a Tom Fazio designed 18-hole golf course which is also a Certified Audubon Santcuary.
The Spanish Revival architecture blends seamlessly with the Florida landscape allowing you to truly connect with nature. I can assure you the birds you hear and the deer and multitude of other creatures you see are not Disney animatronics.
It is impossible not to relax here.
. . .
From the Park View room to the Royal and Presidential Suites, most rooms and suites feature a private balcony that looks onto the parks, lake, golf course, or scenic Golden Oak community.
Two words….fried naan. We had five star service for lunch at PLANCHA, the resort’s lakeside restaurant inside the Clubhouse, and were told the Fried Naan and guacamole appetizer were a must have, and now I’m telling you….You’re welcome.
Plancha is only one of FOUR full service dining options, the signature showcase being CAPA where, in case your luxurious accommodations are not equipped with fireworks view, you can still enjoy the nightly spectacular on one of two outdoor terraces.
. . .
There are also inviting lounges, an ice cream parlor/coffee shop, and an interactive kitchen where you can take a cooking class or host a private dinner.
Adults only will find peace and sanctuary in THE OASIS while children of all ages can enjoy the Lazy River or Explorer Island.
In addition to the secluded Tranquilo Golf Course, there is a 16 acre practice facility with course-like target greens.
An array of services and relaxation experiences await guests at the Spa and Wellness Center. Hazards of the job “research” scheduled so I can provide a more detailed report soon.
Despite all temptations to make this resort your one and done vacation destination in central Florida, let’s not forget the reason you are most likely here.
All this luxury . . . all this privacy . . . all this relaxation . . . and all this indulgence is located right in the middle of the magic!
From the convenient Disney Planning Center in the lobby to complimentary transportation to the Parks and in-room celebrations, your ultimate vacation to WALT DISNEY WORLD® Resort awaits. You can even get access to DISNEY FASTPASS+ reservations up to 60 days prior to arrival and the EXTRA MAGIC HOURS benefit reserved for Disney onsite guests.
You don’t even have to leave the resort to experience character dining. Ravello offers the Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy & Pals twice and sometimes three times a week.
With a focus on service, and attention to the details you haven’t even considered, the FOUR SEASONS Orlando provides such a relaxing retreat that you may forget where you are. It is by far one of my favorite ways to DO DISNEY DIFFERENTLY.
