Four Seasons is going to Disney World—in 2014. News recently broke that the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort finalized a $360 million development deal with Silverstein Properties and Dune Real estate partners. And the plans are big. The to-be hotel will include 444-rooms, 40 residence club units and up to 90 private residences, making it the largest Four Seasons Resort in the world.
Four Seasons acquired the land from Disney back in 2008, and the hotel chain will retain a 30 percent ownership interest in the project in addition to operating the resort. Construction of the colossal project is set to begin this December. It will be packed with amenities for the whole family, including:
– Multiple dining venues, including a rooftop restaurant with Magic Kingdom views – A 14,000-square-foot spa with 18 treatment rooms – A fitness center – Three pools and a lazy river – Sports facilities, including tennis courts, basketball court and climbing wall – Two recreational centers for children, teens and families – Approximately 37,750 square feet of meeting and event space – A business center – The renovated Osprey Ridge 18-hole championship golf course
Because the resort is teaming up with Walt Disney Company—its central Florida neighbor and owner of the world’s most-visited theme parks—there’s no doubt it will be family focused and give an enthusiastic nod to the mouse.
