Four Seasons Orlando

So the best thing about having a Disney Bucket List (http://www.wdwfamilytips.com/disney-bucket-list/) is that when you cross one item off, you can add another.  A stay at the Four Seasons Orlando was on both mine and my wife’s bucket list.  We were able to cross that off our list in February 2017! Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, is located deep within Disney’s prime real estate called “Golden Oak”.  Golden Oak is located just past Fort Wilderness surrounded by prime real estate and the Tranquilo Golf Course.

Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort

Located just over a mile away from Downtown Disney (err the new Disney Springs) is a hidden gem of a hotel called the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress Resort.

Aulani, a Disney Resort and Spa

  I was lucky enough to cross one more item off my Disney bucket list (http://www.wdwfamilytips.com/disney-bucket-list/) by spending 8 nights at Aulani a Disney Property.  This resort was everything I hoped it would be and more. Upon arrival, we were greeted at the door with a cool glass of “Hawaii Water” consisting of pineapple, oranges, limes and lemons, and received our Hawaiian Lei.  My daughter and her friend loved this water so much, we had to make a stop every time we passed the lobby (see the hidden Mickey?)!  We were extremely lucky as our room on the 12th floor was ready to go!  We saved some time by using the on-line check-in system, I would recommend doing this at all the Disney resorts.
