Depends on how you connect the switches. If you connect them in a chain ie.

SW1 -> SW2 -> SW3 -> SW4

then you have no issue and can leave STP disabled (altho i wouldn't).

If they are connected to form a square in effect ie.

SW1 -> SW2 -> SW3 -> SW4 -> SW1

then if all vlans are the same on all switches then one of the links would need to be L3 not L2.
