Orlando’s first Four Season Resort opened in August 2014 and offers a plethora of fun for families to enjoy outside of Disney World. The resort’s Explorer Island water park features a family pool with zero-entry access, two waterslides, a splash pad, rock climbing wall, sand volleyball, games and other interactive activities, and kids can enjoy the Kids for All Seasons complimentary kids program. As a part of the Disney World resort hotels, a Disney Planning Center is located on site providing tickets, reservations and other services. Disney character breakfasts are also offered at the resort.
The Four Seasons offers 444 guestrooms, including 68 suites, many with views of Disney World. The Royal Suite and Presidential Suite are the two top accommodations at the resort and offer families additional space, with views of the nightly fireworks spectaculars. The Royal Suite can connect with other suites, creating a large nine-room residence, whereas the Presidential Suite can connect with other suites to create a four-bedroom residence. These luxurious suites include kitchenettes, large balconies and high-tech media elements, like surround sound and drop-down projector screens.
Complimentary Internet, mini-fridges, DVD players, iPod docking stations and LCD TVs are available in each room. Children 17 and younger are free of charge. Young guests receive a welcome amenity at check-in and child-sized robes and free baby toiletries are available. Guests can also request baby proofing, cribs, high chairs, playpens, bottles and toys. The resort also provides complimentary DVD rentals, children’s pool toys and swim diapers.
The Four Seasons also features onsite dining, a spa, fitness center, golf and tennis, as well as prime views of theme park fireworks.

This is a first class property. Meticulously maintain and well run. Hotel staff are wonderful and attentive. Had a food allergy and staff serving the meeting remembered and accommodated my dietary needs.
I have stayed at many hotels some more expensive than this but have never enjoyed a hotel experience more. Service is impeccable and the rooms are the cleanest I have seen. Pool side service borders indulgent. Every staff member makes guests feel like VIPs. Kids activities are so numerous and we didn't even get to do everything. Honestly, I think my kids enjoyed the hotel more than the park. It is a peaceful respite from chaos and crowds at the parks. Best example of luxury meets family fun I have experienced. Cant wait to come back!
