I’ve been anticipating the opportunity to venture inside the Four Seasons Orlando Walt Disney World Resort for some time now. Yesterday I had that desire come to fruition as a small group of media were given a preview tour in advance of the official Grand Opening on August 3rd. I have so much to share with you that I thought I would break this post up into three parts due to the volume of photos I’d like for you to see.
The Four Seasons will have five dining options when it opens (Capa, Ravello, PB&G, Plancha and Lickety Split) and we were able to experience three of them. We will start with Ravello, a large modern Italian restaurant with an enormous show kitchen.
The Ravello Bar is located on the Lobby Level of the resort and is a fantastic place to meet up with friends for a cocktail before dinner. These wooden chairs reminded me of cobbled clogs.
Ravello Bar is rather large, with seating for 70 inside and 88 outside on the patio. There are a myriad of different options in which to sit from bar stools to high tops to couches and even the above banquette seating.
Check out the views from the outdoor patio seating.
When you are ready to dine simply head down the grand staircase to the ground floor where you will find more plush seating and another bar.
Ravello feels open and very modern. If you choose to dine early you will have fantastic views of the grounds via the floor to ceiling windows flanking one side of the restaurant.
As you can see there are many different seating options available.
On this visit we were offered two tastes from Ravello’s menu. Both dishes were phenomenal and worthy of a return trip to the resort for a full dining experience.
Veal Ravioli (Veal, Spinach & Ricotta stuffed, Wild Mushrooms, Truffle Essence) One of Executive Chef Fabrizio Schenardi’s signature dishes.
Tonno (Pan Seared Tuna, Eggplant Caponata, Saba, Basil Oil) Amazing texture and an ideal sear on this simple yet elegant dish.
Ravello will be open nightly from five to midnight. It will also be home to the “Good Morning Breakfast with Goofy and his Pals” character dining, twice weekly. The buffet-style breakfast will be offered on Thursdays and Saturdays, and also on Tuesdays during peak school break periods, and will feature a wonderful assortment of traditional breakfast offerings and an omelet station. A photographer will be available to capture family memories.
I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into Ravello at the Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort. Stay tuned for my review of Lickety Split and more images from the resort grounds in a future post.

Special thanks goes out to the Four Seasons for this media preview. I was not required to write this post and all opinions are my own.
