BEDS AND BALCONIES IN STANDARD ROOMS AT THE FOUR SEASONS RESORT ORLANDO

View from My Balcony Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World from yourfirstvisit.net

There’s two types of balconies in standard rooms. The vast majority have a full-width, standard depth balcony like this one:

Note the light and power outlet. The view from this balcony is at the top of the page.

But there’s also a small group of rooms that take advantage of an outthrust high in the building and get bigger balconies. In the image, the outthrust is at top center.

Balconies in these rooms are at least twice as deep.

TWIN BED ROOMS AT THE FOUR SEASONS RESORT ORLANDO

The only standard rooms with two beds offer full beds, somewhat astonishingly in an era at Disney World when after renovations at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort finish, among standard rooms only Disney’s value resorts don’t offer queens.

Here’s the bed side of a full bed room.

The full beds are comfortable, and each comes with a couple of ottomans at its foot, so all can be dragged about for musical chairs and other impromptu room games.

At the balcony end of the two bed rooms there’s an easy chair, where one can relax and contemplate why a room that costs more than $500 a night has such small beds.

KING BED ROOMS AT THE FOUR SEASONS RESORT ORLANDO

Four Seasons Resort Orlando Standard King Bed Room Floor Plan from yourfirstvisit.netThe king bed rooms at the Four Seasons are much more livable, because the fold-out couch is very comfortable.

The second bed and chair of the full bed room is replaced by this couch.

After you’ve moved the table–no easy task, it’s so heavy you’ll be tempted to tell the kids that there’s no bed here so they have to sleep on the floor–and pulled off the cushions, the couch unfolds into this bed.

I measured this bed as 60 inches wide–same as a queen–but just 72 inches long, shorter than even a full bed. It has thanks to an ingenious springing system a mattress depth of more than 6 inches, and is the most comfortable sofa bed I have ever slept on.

All sofa beds are compromises, but other than the length this is the least compromised sofa bed I’ve ever slept on!  (I pulled the comforter off the king–the sofa bed comes with blankets.)

iPad Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World from yourfirstvisit.net

Rooms of both types come with an iPad for guest use.  When you check in to the room, you sign that if you take off with it, you will pay for it. Not that typical Four Seasons guests are a bunch of iPad stealing full-bed sleeping folk.

Light Control Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World from yourfirstvisit.net

Lighting is straightforward and adequate, with one minor exception. Most task and general lights are easy to use, but the main lighting of the room is controlled by this fixture which doesn’t look like any of the other on/off buttons in the room.  I found it only by assuming that something somewhere in the room would turn the lights off…
