Virgin rating

The hotel

Next to the Walt Disney World Dolphin and the Swan Reserve, you’ll be wowed by what’s on offer across these three resorts. With 22 places to eat and drink, a spa, plus 5 pools, there’s loads of room for some well-deserved R&R. When it comes to fun-filled adventure, you’re just a short stroll from Disney’s Boardwalk, and not far from Epcot, and you can enjoy early park entry at any of the parks if you're staying here - provided you've secured your park tickets and reservation of course! When you're not spending those early mornings and late evenings in the park, there's a waterslide, a kids’ club, games on the beach, and even mini-golf nearby to keep the family entertained, all in the heart of the most magical place on earth.

This hotel is the equivalent of a shelf serve checkout line at a grocery store. One grand suite requires 3 room keys and 3 separate check ins.. check in lines are long even if you marriot platinum elite… calling anyone from your room is impossible .. waited on hold 15 minutes each time and never reached anyone. “Room Service” is basically what you can get your self at the coffee shop downstairs and comes in plastic… with a 22% grat… Room Service is real plates, forks, and knives.. right? This should be called in hotel Uber Eats for an crazy high fee. Went to ask for a late check out downstairs (because 30 minutes total on hold could not yield a single human) waited at front desk for 15 additional minutes because there was one person at front desk at 10am on a Sunday. I went to grab lunch my last day at the pool bar, but you can’t eat there, I have to sit in a lounge chair scan a QR code and wait for someone to bring me stuff and plastic. Seriously I think Covid told this place it was OK to not take care of their customers anymore.. I am out.. won’t be back Read less

We booked an excellent trip to Disney World with our family staying at Swan Hotel. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There are multiple transportation options from the hotel to Disney Parks including within walking distance to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

We checked in Thursday and had to start calling for housekeeping on Saturday afternoon around 3. They showed up after 7:30. The younger child was already asleep.

We checked in Thursday and had to start calling for housekeeping on Saturday afternoon around 3. They showed up after 7:30. The younger child was already asleep. The location is great and within walking distance. The hotel rooms are not great for the price. The parks were dirty which I never expected from Disney then you come back to a dirty room. The wait times for rides or food are 45 to 80 minutes which isn't reasonable for young children. The wait time for housekeeping in the hotel is 3 days. Universal is so much better but we bought Disney passes this year so are stuck. One member came back with COVID so I would stay away if high risk. Read less
