Be careful when you book a room at this resort. These pics are our view from our room. When asked if we could move to another room, they would.not budge.

Lots to do, see,and eat at their resort! On site restaurants for breakfast lunch dinner and ice cream for the end of a good meal! There is even a spa so you can relax while the rest of the family plays I. The game room.

I was treated to a stay here by a friend. The location was good and the pool was a joy. The sushi restaurant was well worth a visit. Was easy to get to the parks and the hotel was clean and had friendly staff.

However I am just too spoiled now being able to have a whole house rather than a bedroom (hotel room). So my next stay will be back at my villa!

Typical convention Disney hotel everything is overpriced and quality is low

Clearwater, Florida, USA

Waited for valet parking while they stood in a group talking. Finally had to get out of the car and ask them for help. They did not take the luggage and I had to go and ask for a cart. I reserved 4 rooms for a wedding because in the past it has been exceptional and I am totally embarrassed to bring relatives here from out of town. I was not told, at any time during the numerous times I called for reservation details, that the pool would be closed due to renovations. The children were very disappoited. The lady at the front desk was rude. The carpet needed vacuuming and the paint in the bathroom was peeling. Very little nice to say. Don't waste your money.


A friend of mine and I stayed at the Swan a couple of times. I'm not sure what they use to scent the lobby but it is the most soothing smell. There are beautiful orchids in various parts of the halls. The elevators are very accommodating. The beds are truly amazing and heavenly! You won't be disappointed! Within walking distance to the boardwalk, bus transportation to the parks, as well as boat, depending on which park you'll be visiting. There's no shortage of local restaurants. The pools and hot tub are great.

Great hotel in the middle of Disney world. Big place. Great staff! Close to most all. Can walk to much. A little pricy but worth the extra money. Stayed at the dolphin and likes it better then the swan.

First class hotel right in the middle of it all, and a great place for a conference, or other gathering. There are free shuttles and ferry boats that will take you virtually anywhere in the Disney theme parks / hotels portfolio.

Have only been to The Swan. Not considered a true Disney Resort but you still have most of the guest privileges. Great location. Walking distance or a short boat ride to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Rooms are clean and the staff efficient.
There is such a sense of relaxation and peace when you enter the lobby from the hot and humid outside.

It's been ages since I've been there. Not incredibly memorable over all but connected into the rest of Disney which is always great!

The Chicagoland Area, Illinois, USA

Not part of Disney's properties but on the same lagoon as Boardwalk Inn. A very nice hotel with comfy rooms.


Hotel was nice - the property seems pretty large. We stayed at the Dolphin and the Sean is right next door. Between the two you have a decent selection of restaurants to choose from. It's walking distance to the boardwalk and the ferry service will take you to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. For the other theme parks, there's a shuttle service right outside. The laundry facility could have been a little cleaner though. There's a kiddie pool, family pool and adult pool here.

Stayed here to attend a conference. Very convenient to restaurants on the Boardwalk and Walt Disney World. Love riding the boat instead of the shuttle.

Huntington Beach, California, USA

This hotel is JUST OK.
not so memorable...average....service was ok.
The reason I gave it 3 Stars is because of the location.
It is well located and has a Disney Shuttle.

These are the equivalent of the Contemporary, Grand Floridian and Polynesian hotels near the Magic Kingdom, in that you are so close to both Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot.
You are a boat ride away (or if you choose, you can walk) from both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Not actually Disney-run hotels; an anomaly for their location.
Both have great amenities and enjoy some great views depending on the room you are in.

Phoenix, Arizona, USA

Location, location, location, and comfortable beds. I'm an EPCOT and Disney Hollywood Studios lover--blame it on my love of drinking around the world. Needless to say, I love the location of the Swan hotel. Their heavenly beds and park views make this an excellent hotel.
The lobby has happy hour type events and between the Swan and Dolphin, there are several restaurant options.
It's about a 2 minute walk to the middle of the Boardwalk area where even more dining options exist.
