Stay at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel

Comfort Within Walt Disney World

The Swan Hotel, sister to the neighboring Dolphin Hotel, offers deluxe accommodations within the Disney World grounds. (The Swan is a Westin hotel and the Dolphin is a Sheraton hotel.) Walt Disney World's attractions surround you, and you'll get early entrance hours. With Disney World as your host, you're sure to have a clean, friendly and secure environment.

You Won't Need Your Car

Choose your free transportation. Walk to shops on Disney's Boardwalk, next to the hotel. Take a water taxi to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Shuttles take you to the Magic Kingdom and the other Disney parks. Shops offer free delivery of your purchases to the Swan, so don't worry about being weighed down.

Host Business Meetings and Events

The Swan and the Dolphin share business and event resources. Fully equipped business centers offer up-to-date software and equipment. For weddings and social events, Disney World offers a thrilling setting for your guests. You'll have many choices for catering. The expert staff can help you plan and carry out your events.

Choose Your Family Fun

Cool off in the 3-acre grotto pool with caves and a waterfall and slide (shared with the Dolphin), and catch games and music with a DJ. Or work out in the lap pool. Kids 4-12 can enjoy supervised play at Camp Dolphin. Try your skill at the games in the arcade. Keep fit with modern equipment in the Swan Health Club. Sports courts, and jogging trails surround the hotel. Ease into a whirlpool, or pamper yourself in the Mandara Spa. Rent a motorboat or paddle a swan boat on Crescent Lake.

Dining Choices

Many restaurants await you at the Swan. For casual meals, try the Garden Grove where Disney characters can visit your table, or the Fresh Mediterranean Market (breakfast and lunch only). For more formal evening dining, try the Bluezoo for seafood by Chef Todd English, the Miami Dolphins-themed Shula's Steakhouse, Il Mulino New York Trattoria for Italian, or the intimate and comfortable Kimono's for sushi, tempura, duck, or Kobe beef. 

Pick the Best Room or Suite

Choose from Standard, Traditional, Family, or Resort rooms, all with LCD TV, safes, desks, and beverages. Suites are Executive, Grand,Governors, and Presidential, all with balconies and many excellent amenities.
