According to a new press release from the Four Seasons Resort Orlando, the AAA Five Diamond Award rated Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort will offer the Extra Magic Hours benefit to guests, with valid theme park admission, effective March 9, 2018—just in time for spring break fun.

The Extra Magic Hours benefit means that each day Four Seasons Resort Orlando guests can enjoy select attractions as one of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks opens early or extends later, and during select dates, the Extra Magic Hours benefit may also be offered at a Disney Water Park. Guests can view the Extra Magic Hours calendar at www.disneyworld.com/parkhours, or request a copy of the printed Times Guide, available in the lobby.

“We are very pleased to offer this additional Disney enhancement to our guests,” said Thomas Steinhauer, Regional Vice President and General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Orlando. “Four Seasons guests will surely enjoy more fun in the parks provided by the Extra Magic Hours.”

Since the Resort’s opening in 2014, Four Seasons Resort Orlando has provided guests with wonderful connectivity to Disney.  In addition to the new Extra Magic Hours benefit, the Resort also provides guests with the following Disney connectivity:

1. Disney Planning Center

The Disney Planning Center, conveniently located near the front desk on the lobby level, provides the perfect spot for guests to meet one-on-one with a Disney Cast Member and plan some wonderful details of their stay.  Guests can receive assistance with their ticket arrangements for the Disney theme parks and dining reservations at Disney restaurants.  The Disney Planning Center is a one-stop central hub that seamlessly organises a guest’s entire Disney experience—even supporting the planning process before guests walk in the door.

2. Disney Character Breakfast

Four Seasons Resort Orlando offers the “Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy and his Pals” character breakfast, twice weekly at Ravello restaurant.  The buffet-style breakfast is offered on Thursdays and Saturdays, and also on Tuesdays during peak school break periods, featuring a wonderful assortment of traditional breakfast offerings and an omelet station.  A photographer captures the memories of the families with the stars of the breakfast, the always entertaining Goofy & Pals.

3. Disney Event Group

For guests who wish to host events incorporating Disney, Four Seasons Resort Orlando works closely with the Disney Event Group to offer access to events in some of the Disney parks.  Events held at Four Seasons Resort Orlando can feature Disney décor, entertainment acts, character appearances, and more.

4. In-Room Celebrations

It’s always the little details that give a guest that over-the-top impression and special welcome, and one way Four Seasons Resort Orlando can “wow” guests is through Disney In-Room Celebrations.  The Resort offers themed in-room welcome gifts, so that upon a guest’s arrival, a surprise can be waiting in their guest room.  The “Presenting Your Royal Princess” In-Room Celebration, for instance, includes a banner hanging outside the door of the room, a personalised royal princess proclamation, a letter from the Fairy Godmother, and a large pink box filled with princess treasures, including a tiara and magic wand.  From princesses to pirates, there are several options of In-Room Celebrations available for Four Seasons guests.

5. Transportation to the Disney Parks

Guests of Four Seasons Resort Orlando have complimentary transportation to Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  Luxury motor coaches transport guests every 30 minutes to the Magic Kingdom Park and every hour to the additional parks.

6. Merchandise Delivery

Due to the Resort’s special location and proximity to the Disney Theme Parks, guests of Four Seasons Resort Orlando can arrange to have park souvenirs delivered directly to the Resort, instead of carrying purchases around all day.  Same day delivery is offered conveniently at all four of the Disney parks.

7. Room with a View

Many areas of Four Seasons Resort Orlando have a perfect vantage point for the night time spectaculars.  All of the Park View Rooms offer a view of the Magic Kingdom Park special fireworks displays.   Select rooms offer views ofIllumiNations:  Reflections of Earth at EpcotGuests can enjoy the show from the comfort of their furnished balcony.  In addition, Capa restaurant on the 17th floor rooftop offers al fresco dining on the terrace, and views of the fireworks.

To begin the process of using the Extra Magic Hours hotel benefit on a 2018 Disney vacation, guests age 3 and older will need a valid, official Extra Magic Hours voucher from Four Seasons Resort Orlando, and a valid Walt Disney World theme park ticket, to use the Extra Magic Hours benefit. This hotel benefit is available through December 31, 2018, and is subject to change without notice. Guests without the Park Hopper Option or Park Hopper Plus Option must use their ticket for admission to the same theme park where they would like to enjoy the Extra Magic Hours benefit.

Walt Disney World Resort has a powerful magic that provides an experience like no other vacation. Amazing festivals happen nearly all year long at Epcot, including artful experiences during Epcot International Festival of the Arts, inspiring displays at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, the culinary indulgences of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and finishing off the year with the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays. There is so much to see, do and eat at Epcot year-round. Another not to be missed, magical moment is the grandest of finales at Magic Kingdom Park with Happily Ever After — the newest, most spectacular fireworks show in the park’s history. “Toy Story” pals can’t wait to have theme park guests join them in Toy Story Land, opening June 30, 2018 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Kids and grown-ups alike can experience all-new adventures in the so-much-larger-than life setting of Andy’s backyard.

Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort has a stunning location set within the residential community of Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort, just five miles (eight kilometres) from the Magic Kingdom Park and four miles (six and half kilometres) from Epcot. Accommodations include 443 guest rooms, including 68 suites with versatile connecting options ideal for families and groups travelling together. In addition to a wonderful connectivity to Disney, the Resort offers six restaurants; the Tom Fazio-designed Tranquilo Golf Club; three Har-Tru tennis courts; a five-acre (two hectare) Explorer Island water park complete with lazy river and recreational area; an adult-only pool; and a sumptuous Spa with 18 treatment rooms and two tranquility lounges.
