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.

Couples Retreat

Not a Disney Resort. Pretty average place. Great location is about the only thing nice about the resort. They charge $16 a day for parking and $20 a day for wifi and bottle waters, which is mandatory.

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 hotel

This is not a Disney Resort. It is managed by Westin. You pay $16 a day to park and you don't get the disney magic hours. Wifi does not work even know it's a mandatory charge.

great place

The Swan Reaort was a beautiful place. It is conveniently located extremely close to Disney's Epcot and Hollywood Studios that it was a joy to take the quick boat ride over to each. My only real complaint is that the wi-fi in the room didnt work unless you were right near the door and even then I couldn't get it on my ipad.

Disappointment from the start

We wanted an online checking and was told it was not available. No telephone checkin either. and was told I we had late check in at 11pm after cirque de soleil and check in took 45 minutes!!! The next morning we left our room to a stinking hallway from someone smoking in the hotel. When checking out we had ants one the dresser. Then I discover $700 with of incorrect charges by the hotel resulting in maxing my credit line on my rewards card!!! I will be doing everything I can to cancel my October stay at the Dolphin with no PENATLY!!!!!!!
