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 hotel and great location, beware of hidden fees

Pros: The swan could not be located in a better spot, it is minutes from Disney Parks with shuttles and a water taxi available. It is right off the boardwalk with many adorable shops, everyone was very friendly. Staff were great with questions and very helpful. As per Disney, the grounds were perfectly manicured and beautifully decorated. There are plenty of photo-op locations just at the hotel with the giant swan fountains located throughout. There are numerous restaurants in the Swan and neighboring Dolphin hotels, though maybe not for the budget-minded. After much online searching and days of comparisons, the Swan seemed like the best deal for the experience I was looking for with my family, which brings me to Cons: Valet parking was offered, and we opted to self-park. It was not mentioned that self-parking was only a few dollars less and charged per night. Between the unexpected fees there and a pricey daily 'service fee' which I was told covered usage of the shuttles and health center and was charged whether those were used or not, the 5 night stay ended up being several hundred dollars more than expected.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Save money by taking the short drive to restaurants just a few minutes away versus dining on Disney property for a quick and easy way to save money. I spent 1/3 of the money on meals and got more food for my money.

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!

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.
