Our stay at the Swan Reserve was FANTASTIC! Olivia, who helped us check in, was so friendly and lovely! All of the valets were just fabulous. They were so helpful with a scooter that we had rented for our son; they kept it charged and easily accessible. The people that helped us with our luggage were great and the housekeeping staff were wonderful! Our room was perfectly clean each day. The beds were so comfortable and the location can't be beat. We had a lovely stay and enjoyed our time at Disney World more because of this hotel, I am sure. We had early entry and extended evening hour perks because of the Swan Reserve. The pools were great and the grounds were beautiful. I just can't say enough good things about this hotel. Do not hesitate to stay here. It was wonderful!!! Read less

I had a beautiful experience. The place still feels new, the staff is not only helpful but friendly. I was welcomed back for their free activities on Wednesdays and Saturdays for their guests only fireworks viewing event. It's located across from Swan and Dolphin so you share amenities. It's right behind the Fantasia Mini Golf! They share a parking lot so there's plenty of self parking and valet as well. They have a bus stop to take you to the popular Disney stops, a Disney Guest Experience Desk for any assistance and a big hidden mickey in the lobby. Read less

Swan Reserve was a beutiful Disney partner resort. My family and I checked in pretty late, but had the nicest front desk lady that I unfortunagely can't remember the name of. My family and I were a group of 6 and we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with two beds, one pull-out couch, one full bath, a half bath, with a living and dining area. The room… Read more
Swan Reserve was a beutiful Disney partner resort. My family and I checked in pretty late, but had the nicest front desk lady that I unfortunagely can't remember the name of. My family and I were a group of 6 and we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite with two beds, one pull-out couch, one full bath, a half bath, with a living and dining area. The room had a total of 3 televisions to satisfy my family and I's different entertainment preferences. The bed was very firm but not too firm to the point of uncomfortability. The room had a view of the pool, however we didn't get to swim in it since it was a quick trip. My son and I went to the resort's bar for drinks which were very pricy but that came as no suprise to me. The bar was pretty rowdy because there was a wedding at the resort but that did not spoil the trip or our resort stay. Overall, the Disney Swan Reserve was a very good stay and I recommend it to any family looking for a non-Disney themed hotel. Read less

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel for our Disney trip. We weren't travelling with young kids so we appreciated that this Disney hotel was more 'business' than the standard 'Disney' hotel.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel for our Disney trip. We weren't travelling with young kids so we appreciated that this Disney hotel was more 'business' than the standard 'Disney' hotel. Our plan was to go to the parks first thing and stay until the parks closed. To that end, this hotel is well situated for both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Check-in was quick and all the benefits of staying at a Disney property were explained. The room was quiet, comfortable, and we were fortunate to be able to see the Epcot fireworks on the first night from our room. To go to the parks, there is a short walk to the boat that takes you to either Epcot or Hollywood Studios - the buses to Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom load at the covered walkway at the hotel. On the last day, the hotel allowed us a late check-out, even though they didn't have to, so we were able to spend a little more time at Epcot before our flight. It was greatly appreciated. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Read less

We loved our 3 night stay at the Swan Reserve. We did 3 days in disney and wanted to be on property but not in one of the massive hotels. The Swan was perfect, small botique style hotel with very friendly staff. There is a great coffee shop for breakfast before the part and a great restaurant on site. We had an epcot facing room and you can see… Read more
We loved our 3 night stay at the Swan Reserve. We did 3 days in disney and wanted to be on property but not in one of the massive hotels. The Swan was perfect, small botique style hotel with very friendly staff. There is a great coffee shop for breakfast before the part and a great restaurant on site. We had an epcot facing room and you can see both epcot and magic kingdom fireworks which was fun. You are a few minutes walk across the street to leverage all the ammenities of the Swan and Dolphin if you want. We walked to boardwalk hotel for dinner, took the ferry to epcot and the hotel busses to Magic Kindom and Animal Kingdom which were super efficient. Check in was a bit crazy as the hotel was sold out. However, I want to note how kind and thoughtful the front desk staff was even though there were some Karen's loosing their mind about being 5 minutes past four for checkin. They gave us a property key and we lounged at the pool until our room was ready (we can a bit early). Ryan (tall guy at the front desk) helped us numerous times and was so kind, thank you! Read less
