Disney has a resort for every budget, but some are quite expensive.

The most expensive hotel at Disney World is the Fours Seasons Orlando but Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa is the most expensive Disney-owned hotel. 

Let’s take a closer look at Disney World’s most expensive resort hotels.

Disney World’s Most Expensive Resort Hotels

The most expensive hotel at Walt Disney World is The Four Seasons Resort Orlando. But there’s a catch.

While Disney does NOT own the property, they still consider the Four Seasons Resort Orlando an official Disney World hotel.

So when we’re talking about the most expensive hotel resort at Disney World, the Fours Seasons Resort Orlando is the winner. However,  Disney’s most expensive hotel – owned by Disney – is the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  It’s a little confusing but hopefully, this makes sense.

Let’s take a closer look at these two pricey hotels and how much you can expect to pay to stay at each of them.

The Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Disney World

If you are looking for the ultimate luxury hotel, then consider the Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort.

About The Four Seasons Resort Orlando

This 443-room golf resort is home to some of the most impressive rooms, restaurants, and amenities of any Orlando-area resort.

The decor is Spanish revival decor is sophisticated and refined. There are also some playful elements, as well. The Four Seasons incorporates some subtle Disney-oriented details into its design.

There’s are pools, waterslides, and one of Disney World’s only lazy rivers. There’s also an on-site Disney Planning Center and free kids’ and teens’ clubs.

Disney World foodies love this resort for its top-notch dining options including a Cuban American eatery and a rooftop steakhouse restaurant. Couples, business travelers, and families with good taste will enjoy everything about this resort.

The Four Seasons Orlando works as a couples getaway or an impressive place to meet for business. However, it still manages to be as much kid-friendly as it is adult-friendly.

No, it’s not on the monorail or Skyliner, but the Four Seasons is located just 3 miles away from Magic Kingdom and Disney Springs.  Complimentary buses run once per hour to and from Animal Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios, and twice per hour to and from Magic Kingdom.
