It’s big. This will be the largest Four Seasons Resort in the world, with 434 guestrooms. The vast majority are standard Deluxe Rooms, with 38 Executive Suites, 18 One-bedroom Suites, 6 Two-bedroom Suites, 1 Presidential Suite, and 1 Royal Suite. The hotel will be part of the community of Golden Oak, planned by Walt Disney Imagineering (we are so not making that up).
There will be kids, and a lot of activities catered to them. There is the Walt Disney Magic Kingdom, the Disney Hollywood Studios, Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park, - breathe, breathe - Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park, and EPCOT Future World and World Showcase, aside from all the amenities of a Four Seasons resort. And you know the Kids at Four Seasons program will be big here.
You should be able to find some quiet seclusion if you need it. There will be a “quiet” pool, separate from the “active” pool. Children can get their fill with a lazy river ride and splash pad, and separate children’s pool area. To really get away from it all there is an extensive spa, with a number of treatment rooms, some of which have private terraces with plunge pools.
Like it? You could move permanently if you wanted to. Golden Oak has a range of luxury residences if life at Disney is your dream.
You won’t go hungry. The Four Seasons will have three restaurants, an all-day Mediterranean restaurant, a pool-side casual eatery, and a rooftop steakhouse, with views of the Disney fireworks.
The sprawling resort will be designed in a style called Florida Revival, a mix of Spanish revival architecture of Boca Raton and Florida’s golden age (whenever that was). It looks out over a Tom Fazio designed golf course, to be managed by Four Seasons, which a lot of the dads (and moms) will appreciate.
Before we get to Orlando, there will be another Four Seasons opening in – shocker – China, Shenzhen this time. We’ll have more for you on that soon.
