The luxurious Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort has been named the #1 hotel in “Best Hotels in Orlando” by U.S. News & World Report for the third year in a row – and that is as long as the resort has been open (almost three years already!). We’ve written so many articles on the Four Seasons Orlando, but some of my personal favorite aspects of the resort are the low number of rooms that makes it seem never too busy; the lazy river, adult pool and other recreational options; the restaurants – each of them serving a unique menu; and being close to the parks but not always feeling so close. It’s a relaxing resort, one which offers so much outdoor seating – including at all the restaurant locations – and the Four Seasons even has a fun Disney character breakfast several days per week. It always feels like a mini-vacation when we stop by, even if just for a quick bite to eat.
Here is the press release from the Four Seasons!

The Best Hotels methodology combines a hotel’s industry accolades with expert and guest reviews and hotel class ratings. U.S. News scored luxury hotels, identifying the top 10 percent in the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean with Gold badges and the top 30 percent within specific markets with Silver badges. The rankings feature more than 2,500 hotels across the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
