The Four Seasons Orlando at Disney World Will Open on August 3 at $645 a Night

Just after we released out Master List of Worldwide Hotel Openings, we received an actual opening date for the hotly anticipated Four Seasons Orlando at Disney World.
Starting on August 3, two adults and two children can spend the night in a Golden Oak View room for *just* $645 a night. You also have the option of choosing one king bed or two double beds. There's also a queen-size sofa bed in the room and a crib can be placed in the room as well.
Lake and park view rooms cost a little bit more at $695 and $795 a night, respectively. If 500-sq.ft. isn't enough space, the Golden Oak suite can be booked for $1,050 a night which has a separate sitting area. (Most rooms, if not all, have their own furnished balconies from which you can gaze out at the Disney World and other parks.)
That price might sound a little steep for a family vacay but the hotel is running a "Stay Longer" offer which will give you a third night free if you book two consecutive nights. While we're not quite ready to brave Orlando in the August heat, that's quite a tempting offer for a new Four Seasons in Disney World.
Here's what else is on tap for the Four Seasons. The hotel will have three different restaurants--Ravello, an Italian kitchen described as a "culinary trip to the Amalfi coast"; Capa which will have steaks, tapas and rooftop views of the Disney World nightly fireworks; and PB+G which stands for "pool, bar and grill." There will be another restaurant with Cuban-American cuisine, called Plancha, at the golf clubhouse.
Aside from the Tom Fazio-designed golf course, a fitness center and tennis courts, activities at the Four Seasons will also include the Explorer Island, a five-acre playground for kids and their parents which will feature a family pool and a lazy river that winds around a "ruined" mansion. There will also be an adults playground of sorts found at the adults-only pool and inside The Spa at The Four Seasons.
You can peep at some renderings of the property here as well as watch a vide of the hotel's construction progress. So far, the place looks blessedly free of cheesy Disney and Mickey designs. And that might be worth the money.
