Walt Disney World in Orlando is getting bigger. Giant leisure brand Disney – also one of the world’s largest timeshare resort managers – have just announced that another leading hotelier and shared ownership specialist, Four Seasons, will be opening at Disney’s Orlando theme park in 2014.
Building has already begun and the luxury resort will be located in the enclave of Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort, creating about 2,000 and hundreds of resort positions when it opens.
The 444-room hotel is being co-funded by joint venture partners Silverstein Properties and Dune Real Estate Partners.
“Travelers around the world know and trust Four Seasons, and Walt Disney World is the world’s premiere family vacation destination,” said Meg Crofton, president Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Operations US & France. “Together, our two companies offer a brand-new reason to visit and experience Central Florida.”
When it opens in 2012, Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort will feature several dining venues including a rooftop restaurant with Magic Kingdom views; a 14,000 square foot spa; fitness center; three pools and a “lazy river;” sports and recreational facilities; meeting and event space plus a business centre.
