Four Seasons Resort
Walt Disney World
“Our daughters have been asking to go to Disney World for a couple of years now, and I will admit the idea terrified me a bit. Disney is so not my thing, but I wanted the trip to be really special for the kids. I will say this: the Four Seasons in Orlando is a game changer. When we first arrived, there was a princess-themed welcome surprise waiting in our room complete with tiaras, flowers, stuffed animals and even a personalized princess proclamation. The girls screamed with excitement!
This property is full of small touches like this, similar to when the staff delivered nighttime milk and cookies to the room. Five star, kid-approved service. We could have never left the resort and the kids wouldn’t have cared. The hotel has their own character breakfast, a lazy river, water slides, etc. You name it, they have it. Truth be told, there were a few moments at the parks when I wished I could hide back at the hotel. It’s that great. I wish we could have stayed an extra day to enjoy the pools and lazy river more. We had a blast with our girls, and if I get the courage to do Disney again, we’ll be back!”

Being a haven away from the chaos of the parks. You’re close, but far enough away that you feel like you’re getting a break at the end of the day.
The whole crew!
Seeing our daughters’ little faces light up at breakfast with all of their favorite characters. It made me want to be a kid again! They were so sweet, I’ll never forget it.
Best time to go
Late spring/early fall. You’ll want to go when it’s warm enough to enjoy the amazing pools, but not so hot that being at the park is miserable.
Few buses back from the park to the hotel forces you to cab and rack up lots of sneaky expenses.
Rooms start at $400 per night.
