Here's a link to a 2010 article about the Golden Oak at WDW which will include a Four Seasons hotel and houses.
Here's one paragraph from it:
"The Wall Street Journalnoted that the shift from Celebration to Golden Oak suggests a starkly changing view of the good life. While Celebration reflects an 'idealistic notion that small towns were the best model, and that...you could not have gated communities and economic segregation,' Golden Oak reflects the gated, economically-segregated enclave for the exceedingly wealthy."
I found this quote depressing, but thought it would be more valid if Disney were replacing the much larger Celebration with Golden Oak.
I don't fault Disney for working with the Four Seasons. This Canadian hotel management company has done an extraordinary job of treating its employees like a family, and they have responded by creating and maintining an incredible run of five-star hotels. Frankly, I think Walt Disney World would be better off if it were run by leaders from the Four Seasons, Trader Joe's, Starbucks, and Costco. They treat their employees better than their competitors in the same fields, but I'm not sure I can say that for Disney parks today. I've heard Universal Orlando CMs brag that they had it better than WDW CMs. Is this true?
