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.
Location
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.

Short Trip

We were in town for a wedding and wanted to go the parks for one day. This was the perfect place for us to stay. We could walk to the park as well as take advantage of magic hours. The swan was very clean and we got to stay in one of the newly renovated rooms.

We were in town for a wedding but wanted to spend one day at the park. The Swan was a perfect place for us to stay. It was a lot more affordable than some of the other Disney resorts, but we were still able to take advantage of the magic hours for our one day at the park. The hotel was very clean and comfortable.

Okay

Do not be fooled, this is an affiliated Disney hotel, it is NOT a Disney establishment even though Disney is in their name. Magic bands will not work with the Swan or Dolphin Hotel. The best thing about this hotel is that it is walking distance to Epcot and the Boardwalk (not much to do on the Boardwalk). the positive to this hotel is that if you are hungry late night, this place has a 24 hour restaurant (decent place to eat) at the Dolphin. The Swan and Dolphin are connected.

Fabulous vacation!

We went to FL for a quick weekend getaway and enjoyed our time very much. The only minor negative is that while this hotel is on Disney property it is not actually OWNED by Disney, so airport transportation is not provided, as it was with the other properties. We had a bit of a difficult time getting TO the hotel, but after we arrived everything was wonderful and they took great care of helping us get BACK to the airport on Sunday. The view from our room was fantastic and overall we were very pleased.

Great trip

This hotel can't be beat for location for a Disney vacation. Exceptionally clean and with beautiful views, shuttle service to all the Disney parks. Value-wise be careful of last minute fees they charge at the end of your stay. They claim the shuttle service is free, but charge you over $20 per day no matter whether you use the shuttles and work out area or not. The self service parking is another gouge in the wallet that they don't mention unless you specifically ask. Its a beautiful hotel but if you're on a tight budget there are better choices in the area.

Great Place to stay if rooms are $ at a deal

Great Room, Good amenities. Overall a good place to stay in Disney if they are running a deal on the room rates. Pro- Walking / Boat travel to Epcot and Hollywood Studios, good restaurants on site, Unique atmosphere . Con- Not a Disney owned Resort, Pay for parking if you have a rental car.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

The walk to Epcot will lead you to the Back Entrance of Epcot, which puts you near England's Pavilion in the park!
