It’s open: See inside Four Seasons Resort at Walt Disney World
The 443-room Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World officially opened on Aug. 1 with a ribbon cutting ceremony for guests, local officials and executives.
The hotel is quite the addition for Walt Disney World, providing another high-end lodging option for the millions of tourists the theme park giant welcomes each year.
Development of the project began in 2011 and created more than 5,000 construction jobs. In addition, it has generated 500 permanent jobs to operate the hotel on a regular basis.
But there may be room for more, said Four Seasons Orlando General Manager and Regional Vice President Thomas Steinhauer. He said hotel bookings have been strong so far this year and believes the resort will be able to hire another 500 workers next year to accommodate future growth.
