The Four Seasons at Walt Disney World Family Vacation Review

If you follow me on instagram, you’ll probably remember all my insta-story posts of my family and I at the Four Seasons at Walt Disney World. But I’m going to talk about our stay a little more and all the amazing things the resort has to offer. I wish I took more pictures, but I honestly was just living in the moment, and really soaking in everything!

Why we went:

So my husband’s company was hosting a client conference there, and one of the perks was all of us got to come along. While my husband worked, we got to enjoy all the amenities the hotel had to offer.

We stayed for 3 days and 2 nights. Originally I wasn’t going to stay AT ALL because the kids have school, and it was the 2nd to last week of school so I didn’t want them to miss any days. But when I went to drop my husband off, and I saw how beautiful it was and how luxurious his room was, I instantly changed my mind. We typically go on mini family vacations about once every 3-4 months, and we had just went on a staycation a few weeks prior, so I honestly just didn’t feel like doing the pack-all-the-kids-stuff-up thing, and then bringing everything back home. But upon check in (they allowed us to do an early check in at like (9:30am, and even upgraded our room to the pool/Disney view) I was like, “yeah, the kids are missing school for this”. I left the hotel before school got out, and with sufficient time to go home, pack all my stuff, all of theirs, pick them back up from school, then make the 45 minute commute to the hotel. When I picked the kiddos up from school, I didn’t tell them about where we were staying/ or where we were even going because I really wanted to surprise them. Once we got there, they were freaking out…not because of the hotel, but because there’s a pool lol.

Here’s a video of my entire stay fro my insta-story:

How we liked it:

We absolutely loved it! So much to where I was looking up dates, and rates so my husband and I can stay there for a baby-moon. The kids had an absolute blast. We spent hours upon hours at the pool. They ate as much as their little hearts can desire, and was crying when we had to leave on day 3. Our room was spacious enough to have all 5 of us In there, My husband and I slept on the King Size Bed, RJ and Elias shared the Queen size sofa bed, and Joel slept in the playpen. Even with all of us in there, we still had space!

Sometimes when you stay at luxury hotels, you feel like they’re not really kid friendly, but this resort is literally geared towards families. I don’t have a single complaint, and definitely will be going back.

 

Should you go?

This resort is perfect for Disney Loving families! It has something there for everybody. I will say it is expensive, but c’mon you get what you pay for. The amount of stuff this hotel offers, you literally will never have to leave the resort. I highly recommend it, if you’re looking for a luxury resort in the Disney Area, heck in Central Florida!
