Four Seasons at Disney won’t open until 2014
A long-stalled Four Seasons hotel to be built at Walt Disney World won't open for at least another three years.
Toronto-based Four Seasons Hotel and Resorts said this week that the projected opening date for the 445-room luxury hotel has been pushed back until early 2014. The project was first announced in 2007 and was initially scheduled to open a year ago.
The Four Seasons project would bring one of the world's elite hotel brands to Disney World, which has been attempting to cultivate more offerings for ultra-affluent travelers. The hotel is to be a centerpiece of Disney's "Golden Oak" residential subdivision, a community of multimillion-dollar homes that is being built near the Magic Kingdom in the northeast corner of the giant resort.
But plans for the hotel stalled during the global recession. Designers have also had to rework the project to ensure its scale and architecture match the aesthetic of Golden Oak.
Even as the Four Seasons lagged, a rival operator moved forward with plans for its own ultra-luxury hotel at Disney World. The Waldorf Astoria Orlando opened in October 2009.
A spokeswoman for Four Seasons would not say when the company would break ground on the project. She said a formal announcement is likely this fall.
A spokeswoman for Disney, meanwhile, said Golden Oak is progressing as planned. The first 11 homes — of an expected 450 to be built over 10 years — are under construction. Disney has made all of the roughly 80 lots included in the project's first phase available for sale.
"We're very pleased" with interest levels in Golden Oak, Disney spokeswoman Marilyn Waters said. The Four Seasons delay, she added, "won't impact our timetable."

If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
no matter how close or far apart you may be.
A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
