    Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort set to open in 2014:)

    Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts has entered into a joint venture with Silverstein Properties and Dune Real Estate Partners to develop a 444-room luxury resort at the Walt Disney World Resort. Construction is set to begin on what will be the largest Four Seasons resort in the world this December, with a target opening date in 2014.

    “Four Seasons had the unique opportunity to purchase a fantastic site at the Walt Disney World Resort,” says Kathleen Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts. “Then, we partnered with Silverstein and Dune, some of the world’s most astute players in real estate to develop the project, which enabled financial commitments to be secured and the project to move forward. We are also delighted to work with The Walt Disney Company, which shares our vision for a family vacation experience unlike any other.”

    Toronto-based Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, the world’s leading luxury hotel brand, acquired the land from Disney in August 2008, and will retain a 30 percent ownership interest in the project in addition to operating the resort.

    I've got two more nights here at the Waldorf Orlando, and after staying 4 nights at the Four Seasons Vegas during Christmas, I can safely say I'd rather stay at the WA than the Four Seasons. The service here is unbelievable. They will do just about anything to keep their guests satisfied.

    Great to see some new competition, though!

    The Four Season Las Vegas is one of the worst in the system, AFAIC. We stayed there over a holiday and it was overrun; Vegas and the Four Seasons just don't seem to mix. Hopefully, Orlando won't run into the same issues. Traditionally, Four Seasons has been outstanding at working with tired and stressed business travelers. Will it be able to work with tired and stressed four year-olds?
