Overview
Disney's Swan Hotel is famed for its modern design and touch of elegance – the Florida hotel was designed by award-winning architect Michael Graves. Allow yourself to be transported to an island atmosphere – you can relax on the three-acre tropical landscape, complete with rock caves and cascading waterfalls, enjoy its white  beach, whirl pools and waterslide.

Take a break from the kids and send them to the fully supervised Camp Dolphin, leaving you time for pampering at the Balinese-themed Mandara Spa – choose from a variety of treatments or the full-service hair and nail salon. Alternatively you could sip a cocktail or sample a gourmet snack from the Cabana Bar and Beach Club where the music keeps the scene lively.

Need to get some all-important business done at the Walt Disney World Swan during your break? There are also conference facilities with 84 meeting rooms for catching up on work, or you can gather for an informal meeting within the numerous banquet rooms.

Neighborhood
Incorporating all the magical soul of Walt Disney World, the Swan Hotel is located within walking distance of theme parks like Epcot. It is also a short shuttle ride away from other Disney parks and the Downtown Disney area filled with entertainment, shopping and dining options. The Orlando International Airport is only a 20-minute drive away.

If nature's your thing make time to visit Disney's Animal Kingdom – you'll be able to see over 1,700 animals from 250 species, there's the opportunity to go on safari, or even see a Broadway-style play.

Hints and tips
The Swan Hotel is actually a Disney "sister" property. It is a Starwood Resort, but shares the same "Extra Magic Hours" given at other Disney-owned properties. To obtain a view of the nightly Epcot firework display, you should book an Epcot Fireworks View Room with balcony.

The overall hotel experience was great. However being that's part of Walt Disney World, no free shuttle buses from the airport available unlike other WDW hotels. It rained most of the time during my stay and couldn't use the outdoor amenities (pool, playground and other)

First Stay at the Disney Swan

We had a great romantic getaway for Presidents' Day Weekend. We had some trouble with our initial room, but the front desk staff provided us a free room upgrade and room credit to apologize for the inconvenience. Also, the lady who checked us in left a nice hospitality package and welcome note (hand written) in our room the next day.

Wonderful Disney stay

Close to EPCOT and boat to Hollywood Studios. We also rode the Disney buses which stop at the hotel, but they take a long time. The boats go to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. If you have park hopper passes, you can walk/boat to EPCOT, walk through to monorail and take it to Magic Kingdom. You have to take a bus back if you return after EPCOT closes. Having Extra Magic hours at parks really helped.

About a 10 minute walk to EPCOT. Lots of dining/shops 5 minute walk to Boardwalk. Very convenient, and $$$ cheaper than staying at Boardwalk.

I recommend the hotel to a family with small chilren. My children enjoyed swimming and playing a miniture golf. The hotel is located to near Epcot, and we liked to go there by boat.

SWAN experience

Loved the location - the boat transport was great. The proximity to Boardwalk was also great - it was fun to walk over there at night and see the carnival people. The bus transport wasn't so great - they needed more buses - too crowded and slow to arrive at the parks compared to other resort buses. Had some problem with room service - had to order milk three times to get it (by the next day). The beds were awesome and it was relatively quiet - we were glad we stayed at the Swan instead of Dolphin as it was far more crowded and noisy at Dolphin, but they did have better choices for smaller food items even though the prices were crazy. It was definitely overpriced for everything - a tea BAG was $3.00! But all the Disney hotels are overpriced as well, so that's what you get when you want location.

Bring lots of money to spend on food!! Actually going to the close-by Disney hotels to get market items is cheaper and better than what the Dolphin/Swan offers (i.e., Boardwalk, Yacht and Beach Club)

Better choices

Even though the hotel is conveniently located from Disney parks but there services are deteriorating particularly house cleaning. Food prices are unreasonable. charging $2.50 for a roll with butter for a $7.00 SOUP in my opinion was a highway robbery.

Not the quietest room!

First three nights we had a screaming child in the room next to us, next three was the "loud" family. We have stayed at the Dolphin several times without any noise problems, not sure if the construction is different, but don't expect any private conversations! That being said, the location is ideal if you are Epcot junkies as we are. Walking distance to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Had to call for room service after a missed day and maid left behind dirty dishes, go figure. There are better deals, but location wins out for us!

Family Vacation

Great location! Good hotel but a little old could use an a face lift. One thing that the site does not readily mention, you have to look for it, is that this is NOT a Walt Disney World Resort. The resort is actually owned by Sheraton. You can NOT use the hotel room key to enter the Walt Disney World Parks and you can NOT use the hotel room key make charges at the park. You still get all the same perks extra hours entry. The family pool is a little far from the hotel. The Swan did not a cafeteria type restaurant like the Dolphin did, had to walk there for breakfast. Overall the location and price make it a good place to stay even with the small little inconveniences.
