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.

Beautiful, more than expected, will return and recommend to others. Location and atmosphere were perfect. Staff was attentive ad professional. Hotel was easy accessible to theme parks . Would have enjoyed indoor pool ad sauna for cool days , however, I was able to enjoy other festivities at Pleasure Island.

Great Disney Experience!

My family and I had a great experience at the Swan! The location is perfect; you can walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The bus rides to the other Disney rides are short. We took taxi's to the airport and Islands of Adventure which cost between $45 and $65 each way. I do wish the swan had more of a Disney feel, it is more of a classy look. If you want more of a Disney environment I would recommend a different resort. The food in the hotel is very expensive, even a bottle of water cost about $2.50. I recommend bringing your own breakfast, snacks and water bottle to fill. There is a $15 a day resort fee which is dumb, all you get is two bottles of water, coffee, tea and they clean your room. If you go "green" you get a $5 credit each day. But everything at Disney is expensive so what do you expect... The pool is great! Disney is a blast no matter where you stay.

Swan is Super

The Swan was terrific. We knew it was in walking distance of Epcot, which was the primary factor in choosing this hotel. But, we didn't know that the property was so beautiful. The pools, hot tub, gym, "swan" paddle boats, and excellent restaurants made for a perfect location to take a break from all the Disney parks. Highly recommend this hotel. The ability to walk to Epcot eliminated waiting for a bus. However, the bus to all the parks is located right outside the hotel door. In addition, you can take a boat to Epcot, Downtown Disney, and MGM, if you just want to cruise it. Great time!

Great Vacation

Upon check-in, I inquired about an upgrade to a balcony room and Debbi at check in upgraded us for no additional charge and also waived the $14.00 a day service charge for internet, etc. Also sent birthday gift, champagne and chocolate strawberries for wife's birthday. Felt really looked after. Even though not operated by Disney, still has benefits like extra Magic Hours and has a high standard. Being so close to Epcot is the way to go. Boat service saved our feet. This was a very good value vacation. Hope to return again.

The Swan at Disney

Very good location but not able to see the fireworks in the evening and the ride to the park was still 20 minutes. There was boat transportation to the Studios and Epcot. The Dolphin next store had some of the moderate priced restaurants. The Swan's restaurants were pricey and not always convenient for snacks or lunch. For example, the Swan's breakfast was a challenge unless you wanted to full buffet or coffee and a bagel. While the rooms were very nice and comfortable, they did not have a view of the resort, the two suites we had overlooked the roof and a obstructions so no view. Internet connectivity/reception was poor.
