Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort has a stunning location set within the residential community of Golden Oak at Walt Disney World® Resort, just five miles from the Magic Kingdom® Park and four miles from Epcot®.

This lakeside Resort reflects the Spanish Revival architecture of an age gone by with its terracotta-tiled rooftops, square towers, arched windows and colonnades, a style that carries into each of its guest rooms through tall ceilings, crisp white furnishings and tasteful pops of color. Most rooms and suites feature a private balcony that looks onto the parks, the lake, the golf course or the scenic Golden Oak neighborhood, allowing you to enjoy early-morning cups of coffee or late-night toasts to the Magic Kingdom® Park fireworks.

In addition to a wonderful connectivity to Disney, the resort offers six restaurants; the Tom Fazio-designed Tranquilo Golf Club; three Har-Tru tennis courts; a five-acre kid-friendly Explorer Island water park, complete with lazy river and recreational area; an adult-only pool; and a sumptuous Spa with 18 treatment rooms and two Tranquility Lounges. Four Seasons Resort Orlando…. A Dream Come True.

What Members are Saying

  • "PDCA’s conferences are ones we invest in."

    Christian Cunningham (CEO) ( International Construction Equipment (ICE) )
    “Sponsorship has allowed us to be exposed to many in the Driven Pile industry. PDCA conferences are still intimate enough that you can have real conversations face-to-face; something that other events just don’t have. If we’re going to invest in a conference, PDCA’s conferences are ones we invest in.”
  • "Everybody gets a chance to share their story"

    Bill Marczewski, P.E.
    “The PDCA Annual Conference is one of a few events where the entire community of dedicated deep foundation participants gather to exchange ideas and share industry knowledge.  Everybody gets a chance to share their story, and hear those of others, at this event.”
  • “We’ve seen all of this incredible value out of our PDCA sponsorship”

    Kurt Seufert (COO) ( International Construction Equipment (ICE) )
    “Where are we going to see new customers, gain exposure, and meet new contacts? We’ve seen all of this incredible value out of our PDCA sponsorship and we’re really happy to be a part of their annual conference and look forward to next year.”
  • “The conferences have benefitted my personal growth and that of my business”

    Eric Alberghini, P.E. ( Blakeslee Arpaia Chapman, Inc. )
    “Having been a pile driver for over 15 years prior to getting involved with the PDCA, I am surprised at how much more I've learned at the conferences and how much it has benefitted my personal growth and that of my business!”
  • "The New Orleans Conference was one of the best."

    Mike Elliott ( Vice President Equipment Corporation of America (ECA) )
    Great location, accommodations, venue, exhibits and food. Keep up the good work and thanks.
