When it comes to Disney vacations, relaxation might not be the first thing that comes to mind. However, The Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort offers a luxurious and tranquil retreat just minutes away from the parks. With newly renovated accommodations, exceptional dining options, and a range of amenities, this resort is the perfect escape from the excitement of the theme parks.
Getting there from Westport is easier than ever. After a short 30-minute drive to the Westchester airport, you can park the car and walk into the terminal in about 3 minutes. No bridges and no time on the perpetually clogged Van Wyck Expressway.
The Park View Deluxe suites are a sanctuary for the family visiting Orlando attractions. The features are modern, elegant, and an ideal counterweight to the controlled chaos of amusement park visits. The spacious living areas include comfortable sectional sofas and spacious outdoor balconies, while the sophisticated bedrooms include accent lighting and cozy oversized chairs. A closer look at the renovated suites reveals fun details, like the wall motif with hidden castle, honey pot, and star incorporated into the design.
If you're visiting the parks with young ones and heading back to the hotel a little early, don't worry about missing the famous fireworks. The resort's suites offer a beautiful balcony view of Epcot and Magic Kingdom. You can catch the fireworks from the balcony while indulging in room service, luxuriating in the provided adult and kid-sized Four Seasons bathrobes.
Food enthusiasts will be delighted by the diverse culinary options at the resort. Capa, the rooftop steakhouse and bar, offers Spanish-influenced cuisine with fresh seafood and expertly grilled cuts. The outdoor patio restaurant also provides magnificent views of the nightly fireworks. Ravello offers a memorable character breakfast experience with Goofy and pals, while the Lobby Bar serves creative cocktails and fare.
The Four Seasons Resort at Disney provides exceptional amenities and activities for all guests. The adult-only oasis pool offers a peaceful retreat, while families can enjoy the water park with water slides, a lazy river, and a splash zone for little ones. The resort also offers a full-day kids' club. The expansive family pool is gorgeous with an infinity edge that joins aesthetically with the natural beauty of the neighboring lake. The staff at the pool is attentive and upbeat, always making guests feel welcome.
While the kids are occupied, take the opportunity to visit the spa. A spacious oasis dedicated to relaxation, the spa offers plenty of indoor and outdoor options. In addition to massages and facials, the spa offers unique treatments like Vibrational Sound Therapy and innovative IV Vitality Drip therapies.
Designed by Tom Fazio, the 18-hole golf course was the home to a 2021 LPGA Tour event. The fairways and greens are stunning and, as a Certified Audubon Sanctuary, home to a wide range of Florida wildlife. The course also has a 16-acre practice facility with TrackMan video swing analysis, a putting green, and a short course.
If tennis is your game, there are three courts available. Take lessons from an on-site pro, join a daily clinic, or just challenge a loved one to a match.
Not to be overlooked, the early entry to the parks for Four Seasons hotel guests is an absolute game-changer. Disney has opened some new attractions in the last several years and this perk guarantees you early access with limited crowds. We all love Space Mountain and have a special place in our hearts for Pirates of the Caribbean, but the new Tron Cycle ride is a modern roller coaster with plenty of Disney magic elevating it to something bigger and better than just another roller coaster. Combine that with all the other parks, attractions, and new additions, and you'll find something new every time you visit.
The customer service provided by the Four Seasons is unparalleled. Their dedicated staff is always prepared to offer assistance, whether it's providing recommendations, making reservations, or sharing insider tips, ensuring a stress-free Disney vacation. Before our first day at the parks, we approached the concierge for some water bottles to bring with us. We soon realized that time was running out, and we might miss the shuttle from the hotel to the park if we waited any longer. Understanding the urgency, one of the warm-hearted front desk staff members took the initiative and personally met us at the shuttle in the sweltering Florida heat, providing us with cold bottled water to keep us hydrated.
As a final testament to the dedication of the staff, when we arrived at the airport to return home, our daughter realized she left her beloved Minnie Mouse necklace in the room. It was too late to go back to the hotel, as we didn't want to risk missing our flight. Without prompting, the hotel staff contacted us and let us know they had found the necklace. They offered to overnight it to our home in Connecticut. True to their word, the necklace arrived at our house the day after we returned home.
Staying at The Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort was truly a special experience. The outstanding staff truly shines as one of the best in the world. They made the planning and experience of visiting Disney parks easy, luxurious, and comfortable. We left Disney feeling relaxed.
Now through September 30, 2023, guests can enjoy greater savings on their summertime escape with the Resort's Stay Longer - Fourth Night Free offer.
