We loved how close Epcot and Hollywood studios are to this property. It was only a short walk or boat ride to get to the parks.

We loved the location! It was super clean and neat. The front desk staff were very kind. The singer guitar guy who performed at the pool was awesome!!!!! A few complaints would be the automated telephone service (It took a very long time to get a hold of someone). And no room service. It would’ve been nice to order food to our room. Overall though we enjoyed our stay!

For the past 5 months my wife and I have spent a weekend at the Dolphin hotel, with never a bad experience. This weekend we decided to give the Swan a try. Boy were we disappointed. While the facilities were great the check in staff and guest services were very rude and unhelpful. Frankly they acted like we were bothering them. One instance, when you stay at any Disney property they are to make arrangements for you to get into any of the parks and we have never had an issue at the Dolphin with this advertised service. At the Swan we were told and treated like, " do it yoursewlf on your app" We all know that the reason that you have the facility do it is because they have reserved slots for hotel guest that the app doesn't show. This was just one of several things. Lesson learned, don't book the Swan! Stay with the Dolphin and experience what real Disney stay should be like. Bottom line is I would rather sleep in the Dolphins dumpster than stay at the Swan.
