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.

We've stayed at other luxury-brand hotels in Orlando, none of which quite live up to the reputations their flags suggest. This resort was the exception, and was in keeping with the Four Seasons experience we've had in other cities. Our room was stylish, quiet and comfortable, with generous closet and bath areas. The pool and recreation areas were impressive, and the public spaces inviting and fun. A pleasant and unexpected surprise!
Amazing hotel with exceptional service. The staff was very helpful in tending to all of our needs. The hotel pool area caters to the children with the slides, lazy river, and arcade. The adult pool also offers a great adult only retreat.
