Good, but be careful of fees

Room was average, bed was comfortable. Beware of added fees, like the resort package fee and parking.

Skip the onsite restaurants and go for Boardwalk/Yacht/Beach Club options, especially the Boardwalk Bakery which has more options at a cheaper price.

Very nice location.

The location was convenient. Not as many mid ranged restaurant choices, however, you can walk to the Dolphin for more choices. The transportation was great with the excception of the bus for Downtown Disney. Would suggest that they have more busses running there as that was a long wait and the bus was full at the first stop. Luckily the Swan was their first pick up stop. Found there is no rhyme or reason for prices for certain things within the hotel. Would suggest buying soda and water from the machine for 1.75 as opposed to 4.50 at the bar. Overall a very nice experience!

"Wonderful Resort"

My husband and I chose the Swan and Dolphin resort to be within walking distance of two of the Disney parks. The facilities are exceptionally well-kept, the staff is friendly and helpful and the variety of on-site restaurants offer something for everyone. We would not hesitate to select this resort again.

very convenient location

It was great! The room was clean and cool. Most employees were kind. A swimming pool and beach in Dolphin is very good. Above of all, the location is perfect for all Disney parks and Disney boardwalk.

Relaxing even at Disney!

This is my third time staying at The Swan. It is a nice break from the overly themed hotels on property, yet it has boat and bus transportation anywhere you want to go at Disney. I loved the hotel pool and bar/restaurant near it. The Swan is beautiful and has a top notch Italian restaurant, Il Mulino. It is wonderful.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

It takes time to travel by bus to other Disney destinations. There are numerous stops at other resorts. Plan ahead!

Great location, good service.

Had a great trip to Florida with my wife and 5 year old. We jammed a full day in at Disney and then a full day at Epcot. Don't expect to get anywhere fast, and expect to spend a lot if money to come to Disney World properties. You can try to look for deals here and there, but the bottom line is, it's extremely expensive to go for a week. The Swan was a nice hotel, had a couple of issues with some of the pool cabana workers who were miserable. No "thank you" from a couple of them and also a couple different ones that just could care less about being there. If anyone from the hotel reads this then contact me and I'll let you know just whom I'm speaking of. Overall, nice place, kind of spread out but would definately return.

Reservations are a must (during the busy season) at every restaurant unless you want a hot dog or a slice of pizza.

Perfect Beds, Great Location

The hotel is in a perfect location; about 10 minute walk to Epcot (Entrance near France) and a reasonable walk to Hollywood Studios. The bed and pillows were absolutley perfect. There's a bar in the Dolphin (Blue Zoo?)with super cool drinks. The staff is about average, with my biggest complaint being the sometimes long line for coffee in the morning.

The boat to Epcot stops at 2 spots before actually reaching Epcot. It can be quicker to walk.

Wonderful Hotel for Disney Travelers

This hotel was perfect for our Disney World trip. Boats to Epcot and Hollywood Studios came right up to the hotel every 20 minutes or so throughout the day, and buses to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, and Downtown Disney arrived every 15 minutes or so, so the location was perfect. Both the Swan and the next door Dolphin have great restaurants, and we enjoyed breakfasting at the Picabu in the Dolphin and having dinner at the Il Mulino within the Swan. The Disney Boardwalk is about a 10 minute walk from the Swan, and Cat Cora's Kouzzina has some tasty Greek food (I recommend the lamb ragu). The only negative I can think of is that the pools and whirlpools close at 9:00 pm. It would have been nice to relax after long days walking the parks.

For smaller (and more affordable) breakfasts, be sure to try out Picabu in the Disney Dolphin next door. Their buffet offers a lot of variety for good prices.
