Walt Disney World Swan 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.

Ok hotel, no problems

The hotel is ok, typical of a 2-3 star hotel, but plenty of pools, activities, dining, etc. The rooms are just average, I would expect more for the price. It's just bed, tv, bathroom, nothing special

Swan just an old hotel room

The first level of this resort and the location are what would be expected from Disney, but the room was not any better than a Holiday Inn. Paid extra for a view that was mostly blocked by overgrown trees and other buildings.

Don't pay extra for a balcony. Your view may not be great either.

overpriced

This is an over priced whole lot of nothing. it is difficult to get food at the hours my event allowed me to get food. most of the food was mediocore and extremely over price. $10 for a tuna saladd sandwich is just wrong.

Great Hotel

It was a great hotel, but it cost and bit much and the beds were pretty stiff. The room and staff were great and it was pretty clean. I'd come here again.

Business Travel at Swan

I attended a conference. The hotel needs more staff to tend to so many guests. I have had much better service staying at other hotels for business.

Great conference facilities

I stayed at the Swan for a conference. The conference facilities were great. The room was very comfortable and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The Swan is conveniently located close to the boardwalk for dining and entertainment options.

Place for both the professional and family

The Swan was a very nice place. The only complaint I had was the bathroom fan did not work and the refrigerator was very noisy. Other than that the location was great and the staff was very friendly.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

The boardwalk had many food options. The General store was pricey for guests but it saved you from leaving the resort.
