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.

Location

Incorporating all the magical soul of Walt Disney World, the Walt Disney World Swan is located within walking distance of theme parks like Epcot.

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.

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 Family Getaway

Clean rooms. Great Staff. Perfect Location. Restaurants are pricey, but dozens of eating establishments around the area. Parking is also pricey.

Centrally located

The hotel was centrally located to all of Walt Disney parks. The ability to walk to EPCOT was great.

Disney Birthday Vacation

The Walt Disney Swan was wonderful, the location perfect - walking distance to Epcot and Boardwalk! We celebrated my daughter's birthday, and the staff made the occasion extra special!

winter getaway

We liked the hotel but it needs a better cafe for a quick breakfast/coffee. Had to wait in line to long for a quick coffee. Plus it needs a better family restaurant.

Swan at Disneyworld

I expected more luxury with a 4 star hotel. The common areas were very nice but the hotel rooms were not worth $260 a night. The shower head was the nicest thing about the room but you are not in the shower but 10 minutes a day. Was disappointed with spotty maid service, not getting service for two days and upon checking in there was no toilet paper in the room at all. Won't stay here again.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Downtown Disney has a lot to offer without paying an entrance fee. The movie theater there has leather seats, tables with waitresses offering a full menu from mixed drinks to meals to your standard popcorn and soda.

Location was great

The location was great. Overall the hotel was good except when we first got there. The first room they gave us the 5th floor had a terrible smell to it so than they moved down the hall on the 5th floor which had the same smell. Finally they moved the 7th floor and it was good. The boat service to Epcot and Hollywood studios is nice as well as the disney buses. The buses are slower than the other disney resorts though. Near the boardwalk. Overall it was good. $85 resort fee.

We went everywhere on our trip the best thing we do was DISCOVERY COVE. I absolutely love this place. Expensive but worth every dime. Google it.

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.
