It's nearly the moment you Disney freaks, er, enthusiasts have been waiting for--The Four Seasons Orlando at Disney World is opening on Sunday!

Room rates at the luxury hotel at the Magic Kingdom start at $449 a night for a Four Seasons Room. A lake view room starts at $579 a night. We'll be watching the early word on social media on Sunday, but if you're staying at the hotel, let us know how it's going!

In the meantime, we've rounded up all the cool things to admire at this hotel. And not one of them includes Mickey Mouse ears!

1. The Adult Pool: The adult pool (separated from the family pool) will have cabanas, cocktail servers and specialty services like "sunglass cleanings." We hope massages are on that list too. #serenitynow

2. Firework Chandeliers in the Lobby. Night time is ruled by fireworks at Disney World but we're loving the cool chandeliers of "fireworks" above the lobby's grand staircase.

3. A Golf Course. The hotel's golf course will be actually be Tom Fazio’s Osprey Ridge golf course which is undergoing a renovation and will open in September 2014. It will still be a certified Audubon Cooperative Wildlife Sanctuary and it will be just a two-minute golf cart ride from the hotel.

Disney World can be a life-altering experience for every wide-eyed kid who steps in to Magic Kingdom. But there are plenty of big kids (adults) also in need of mind-blowing entertainment and decadent amenities.

When The Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort finally opens its doors on August 3, it is sure to impress frequent Disney-goers but it will also reset the luxury hotel standard in Orlando, with its over the top accommodations and amenities. We've already told you 5 reasons why you should get excited about this new hotel but here are a few other amenities you ought to know about as well.

Easy Access
Complimentary transportation is provided from the resort to Disney's main theme parks. The best way to beat the crowds at Mickey’s house is to start off by avoiding them. The easy entrance via an air-conditioned town car is a great kick-off to a day of Disney.

The Four Seasons Orlando at Disney World won't open until August 3 but they keep teasing us on their Facebook page with photos of the property.

And even though we'd normally stay away from the humidity of Orlando in August, we find ourselves practically crossing the days off on the calendar. Here are five reasons why we're hoping the Four Seasons Orlando will make all our dreams come true.

1. The Adult Pool. The adult pool (separated from the family pool) will have cabanas, cocktail servers and specialty services like "sunglass cleanings." We hope massages are on that list too. #serenitynow

2. Firework Chandeliers in the Lobby. Night time is ruled by fireworks at Disney World but we're loving this cool chandelier of "fireworks" above the lobby's grand staircase.

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.

Ok, so technically, Mickey didn’t make an appearance in this video of the under-construction Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World, but we would have appreciated the reference (if slightly on-the-nose) had the iconic character popped up.

Rather, it is Thomas Steinhauer, Regional Vice President and General Manager of the hotel, who dons his hard hat and walks you through the 434-room resort – the largest Four Seasons resort in the world – as it progresses towards a summer 2014 opening.

Well, color us surprised. Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World might still be a year away from opening, but hot on the heels of its GM appointment, the apparent interest in the 434-room resort is already so significant that a first series of rates for meetings and groups has been released. Talk about planning ahead.

We’ll get to those rates in a second, but alongside there’s an indication what us normal people will be paying to live it up with Mickey. Unfortunately, the same seems to hold true here as it does for Disney itself these days: bring your wallet. Rooms will start at $595 in September 2014, going up to $645 from October onwards. Family packages aside, with a room and one-day admission for four, you’re looking at a grand a day just like that. Eeeek.

The idea of a luxe Four Seasons hotel at Disney World might seem sacrilegious to some, but as we first reported well over a year ago, it will be happening next year in Orlando. Wealthy Four Seasons fans have kids too, you know.

That 2014 opening hasn’t changed – this is a from-the-ground-up construction after all – so imagine our surprise when we stumbled on a dedicated website for the hotel, even though it’s not yet listed among upcoming properties over at Four Seasons, let alone in the list of destinations. So what’s there to know about Four Seasons at the Magic Kingdom?

Meanwhile, The Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Wants You to Eat a Burger

While the news out today is all about the exercise-obsessed Even Hotels, it's nice to see that at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, you can still order up a nice, big, fat, juicy Angus burger from the hotel's Cascade American Bistro. But the way they are advertising their burgers is a little unorthodox.

A longtime HotelChatter reader, Brennan Pardee, sent us this snapshot above saying,

I was at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress recently and found this ad stuck on my bathroom mirror. So I guess, "Don't look at how fat you are, come down to the lobby for a juicy burger!" Really?

An ad for a burger stuck on the bathroom mirror? That's definitely something you won't see at Even Hotels. But at least they didn't put the ad on the scale....
