The resort will be decorated for the holidays from Nov. 30, 2020, through Jan. 5, 2021, including a spectacular 12-foot-tall Christmas tree in the lobby and an amazing chocolate display created by Executive Pastry Chef Rabii Saber. Plus, the resort is “decking the palms” by adorning its palm-lined pathway with twinkling lights, wreaths, and poinsettias.

There’s no doubt holiday time is the perfect time for sweets. From peppermint S’mores at PB&G to special holiday gelato flavors at Lickety Split, there are plenty of sweet treats at the Four Seasons Orlando this year. But that’s not all! Lickety Split will also be tempting guests with peppermint chocolate pretzels, hazelnut cookies, peanut butterscotch dark chocolate bark, and pecan brownie cheesecake.

Special holiday dining menus will also be offered for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Eve. In addition to the Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy and His Pals every Saturday morning at Ravello, one additional character breakfast will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2020. This character prix-fixe dining experience features a fun-filled visit from favorite Disney pals.

The daily Kids For All Seasons complimentary kids camp is offering fun activities throughout the festive season like writing letters to Santa, Santa “sELFies” photos, “track the elf” scavenger hunts, jingle bell crafts, candy cane hunts, and much more. On select nights, families will be able to enjoy screenings of holiday movie classics, including “The Polar Express” and “The Grinch Who Stole Christmas” – popcorn included, of course.

The holiday season will also be merry and bright at The Spa with “Holiday Presence,” an 80-minute custom holiday body treatment that begins with a full-body exfoliation using mineral salts and Myrrh oil, followed by a massage using Frankincense oil. These essential oils that are not only steeped in holiday tradition and spirit, but Frankincense inspires meditation, increases focus, and reduces stress, anxiety, and tension while Myrrh is known for its calming and grounding properties and promotes overall emotional wellbeing.

“This is the season of giving, reconnecting, and reflection,” said Derek Hofmann, senior director of Spa. “Give yourself the gift of balance, serenity, and harmony during this wonderfully busy time of year.”

The Spa is also offering “Merry Manis & Mistle-Toes,” a 90-minute manicure and pedicure treatment where guests can choose from the comforting notes of warm apple cider or the peaceful and traditional scents of Frankincense and Myrrh. A warming soak, exfoliation, massage, and hydration complement nail shaping, cuticle care, buffing, and the perfect seasonal polish.

In addition to the seasonal enhancements around the resort, the Four Seasons Orlando has also enhanced its suites and guestrooms with new carpeting, upgraded furnishings, and decorative artwork. Plus, guestrooms that previously had two full-size beds now have two queen-size beds with modern headboards that offer USB/power access.

The artwork for the updated rooms and suites not only reflects the new modern look but some have a touch of Disney magic as well. The geometric art pieces were inspired by Epcot’s Spaceship Earth attraction  and the artwork featuring embossed paper star and constellation designs took inspiration from the iconic Disney song “When You Wish Upon a Star.”

“It’s exciting to enter the holiday season and the New Year with these enhancements for our guests to enjoy,” said Dana Berry, resort spokeswoman. “The room upgrades were well-thought-out based upon the needs of our guests. With these new touches, plus the exceptional guest service Four Seasons is known for, our team really prides itself on delivering the best resort experience in Orlando.”

Four Seasons Resort Orlando recognizes that the hotel experience has changed, and the safety and comfort of guests, employees, and residents remain the resort’s highest priority. Click here for more information about health and safety protocols and to make reservations.
