Schoolcations are the new travel trend.

The team at Four Seasons Orlando at Disney World have launched a brand new education vacation amidst the coronavirus pandemic as they try to make learning fun.

The hotel are running supervised schoolwork sessions in groups of no more than six people at one time. Every desk will be physically distanced from other students and parents can choose to book their children on for half-day from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon, or a full day from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, with lunch included for those staying the whole day aswell.

Thomas Steinhauer, General Manager and Regional Vice President of Four Seasons Resort Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort, said: "This new offering exclusively for our Resort guests will be both helpful to parents, as well as something really fun for kids to experience. Many kids have been completing school work in their homes for a while now. A chance to mix up their learning environment, and combine school and playtime at the Resort, is sure to be a welcome treat and create a memory that will last a lifetime."

The hotel have repurposed their Kids For All Seasons staff, who have been working with children for years.

Sarah Peltier, Director of Recreation, added: "Our kids' club team members have enthusiastic, delightful personalities. They are looking forward to supporting the students while they engage in their virtual learning, and bringing fun and creativity to the afternoon enrichment session."
