Four Seasons at Walt Disney World: Not Until 2014

A report from the Orlando Sentinel says that a Four Seasons hotel to be built at Walt Disney World won't open for at least another three years. The hotel project was first announced back in 2007 and was supposively going to open last year. But it wasn't to be, and now a 2014 date has been heralded, although that is still dubious.

The hotel is to be a centerpiece of Disney's "Golden Oak" residential subdivision, a community of expensive homes that is being built near the Magic Kingdom.

Of note, as the Four Seasons stalled, another high-end operator opened at Disney World: The Waldorf Astoria Orlando opened in October 2009.

A spokeswoman for Four Seasons would not tell the Orlando Sentinel when the company would break ground on the project. She said a formal announcement would likely come this fall.
