PHOTO TOUR OF A KING BED ROOM AT THE FOUR SEASONS RESORT ORLANDO
At 500 square feet, standard rooms at the Four Seasons are larger than those at any Disney-owned resort, and according to Four Seasons are the largest standard hotel rooms in Orlando.
Standard Four Seasons Orlando rooms come in two flavors, one with two full beds and the other with a king bed and a fold-out couch. The king bed rooms at the Four Seasons are much more livable, because the fold-out couch is very comfortable.
The entry doors are deeply inset from the hall, allowing for a second set of doors at the hall edge –you can see just a bit of one at the left edge of the image–to close off the entries of two connecting rooms.
As you enter, the closet and bath are on one side, with the rest of the room ahead of you.
The L-shaped closet is larger than some Wyoming towns, and includes lots of hanging space, drawers and other storage.
A sliding door separates it from the double sinks of the bath. In the bath mirror is a TV, a marvel to some.
Some of the bath gear.
Beyond the sink is the large tub…
…with a separate shower on the other side.
Some of the shower supplies…
…and robes hanging outside the shower.
Next to the shower is the toilet, with a sliding opaque glass door that adds some needed privacy to this otherwise overly open space.
Out in the room itself, on the wall dividing the sleeping space from the bath you’ll find this. The lighted center area is the coffee service.
The coffee thingee goes in sideways.
Above is a mini-fridge, safe and storage, with more storage below. Now you can use this storage space however you wish…but Four Seasons would be pleased were you to call room service and order a bar.
On the TV side of the room you’ll find a dresser, TV, and desk/table combo.

The TV knows your name.
There’s plenty of storage in this room, including the large closet, the area by the coffee service, and the six dresser drawers.
Further down this side is the desk/table. The Disney deluxes have either a table for two or a desk. This (you’ll see similar furnishings in many other hotels) serves as either.
At the far end of the room is the balcony (view from one of my balconies above). There’s two types of balconies in standard rooms. The vast majority have a full-width, standard depth balcony like this one:
But there’s also a small group of rooms that take advantage of an out-thrust 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.

Back in the room, here’s the bed side of king bed rooms.

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.)
Rooms come with an iPad for guest use. Lovely wife Amy Girl had fun using it to order breakfast from room service.
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…
