The “Epic” Florida family vacation you’re looking for is at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort.
Family vacations sound intimate and exciting, but often we return home needing another vacation to simply recover. There’s no need for two vacations if you change your perspective and visit Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World® Resort—you won’t ever want to go anywhere else for the ultimate family experience. Imagine sitting poolside sipping chilled beverages and eating tasty bites while your kids are going down the adventurous waterslides, and cruising through the winding and scenic lazy river, and enjoying the endless infinity family pool. When you’ve had enough sun and- fun and you’re ready for some alone time, adults can head to the spa or state-of-the-art fitness center while the Kids for All Seasons facility takes over the kid’s entertainment with all types of activities from swimming, coloring and movies, to in-door and outdoor games.
It’s a great place for family bonding, but it’s also where kids can be kids and adults can enjoy some precious alone time. The lakeside 26-acre resort, heralded as a “kids’ paradise,” offers amenities and activities for all ages to enjoy. With a lazy river, two water slides, dive-in movies, a splash zone and more, nothing says “summer fun” like a vacation at the only AAA Five Diamond award rated property at Walt Disney World® Resort.
