Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, U.S.A.

The changing of the seasons at Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort may not come in traditional shades of crimson and amber leaves, but there is no shortage of seasonal happenings to fall in love with at the AAA Five Diamond lakeside oasis. Families can spend the day soaking up the sun at the Resort’s expansive five-acre (two-hectare) water park and recreation complex, and savour Michelin Star dining in the evening at the rooftop Capa Steakhouse. In addition to the myriad on-site activities, the nearby Disney Parks offer more special ways for families to experience a memorable fall break.

Family Fun and Relaxation

Families will enjoy basking in the glorious Florida autumn weather at the Resort’s Explorer Island waterpark, complete with a lazy river, interactive splash zone, gradually sloping zero-entry family pool, and more. The award-winning Kids For All Seasons kids club, offering complimentary supervised activities for kids ages 4-12 daily, also includes twice daily supervised swim time.

This fall, added Halloween-theme offerings provide even more entertainment. Kids will love participating in activities such as poolside trick-or-treating, spooky scavenger hunts and pumpkin decorating. Family-friendly Halloween movie favourites will also be featured on the billboard-sized dive-in movie screen overlooking Explorer Pool.

While the little ones are having a blast at the kid's club, parents can unwind by Oasis adult-only pool, experience a golf or tennis lesson, or enjoy a treatment at the incredible Spa and Salon.

Starry Autumn Nights at Capa Steakhouse

Situated atop the 17th floor of the Resort, Capa Steakhouse delivers an unparalleled fine dining experience, now bolstered by its one-star rating in the Michelin Guide Miami, Orlando and Tampa. The warm fall breeze creates a perfect setting for al fresco dining at the signature rooftop restaurant, with two outdoor terraces featuring views of the nightly Disney fireworks spectaculars. Guests can stay close to the action in the main dining room with an open kitchen showcasing the wood-burning grill, and striking Spanish-influenced décor including a ceiling art piece reminiscent of a flamenco dancer's dress.  Capa’s diverse menu features a unique medley of prime cuts, New Basque-inspired small plates and fresh Florida seafood, a true haven for gourmands seeking a star-worthy meal.

The Resort also boasts five additional dining options, including the Michelin-recommended Ravello, serving authentic Italian cuisine with ingredients imported straight from Italy. Pumpkin spice latte lovers are in for a treat at Lickety Split, featuring its own #PSL with house-made pumpkin spice syrup. Numerous other fall beverages such as the chai tea latte also are available.  The incredible pastry team, led by Executive Pastry Chef Rabii Saber, a twice-nominated James Beard Award semi-finalist for Outstanding Pastry Chef, has plenty of mouth-watering fall treats on display in Lickety Split, such as pumpkin cupcakes, chocolate-dipped strawberry “ghosts,” “mummy” cake pops, and “monster” doughnuts.
