    Feels like a motel almost... Needs a refresh and maintenance.

    You're going to be confused why the Dolphin has fish sculptures instead of actual dolphins. They're Dolphin fish aka mahi mahi

    If you're expecting the inspired interior design this property launched with, you're going to be disappointed. The once highly customized furnishings & finishes have made way for more generic tastes.

    Very nice & extremely over priced. $200+ for the room add a $25 resort fee, which gets you nothing, and $18 for parking just to insult you.

    The Swan is smaller, calmer, and more family-friendly than its sister, the Dolphin.

    Be sure to take the short walk between the Swan and Dolphin. It's beautifully lit at night and has a great view of the fireworks at Hollywood Studios.

    Beautiful Resort in the heart of Walt Disney World. Just a short walk from Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios! Great quality for a non Disney Hotel.

    It's a Starwood property. SPG members, this is your ticket to a Walt Disney World vacation on Starwood points!

    If u're an architect, this building is a must see. It's iconic & colorful. If you stay, pick room with pool & lake view. It worths.

    Always a great place to stay and convenient to the Disney parks with transportation to/from provided. As the property is owned by Starwood, you don't get extra magic hours with this property.

    Great hotel and everything but I left a box of chocolates (closed) to snack on throughout the week and by the fourth night there were ants in it! In December! On the 12th floor! That was scary.

    I love that if you choose to decline housekeeping service for a day you get a voucher for $5 off food or 500 SPG points and you are helping the environment by conserving.

    Like most places around this area, food and beverages are over-priced. Bring your own snacks and drinks, if you can.

    Demasiado caro para lo que es. Recargo obligatorio de 23$ por noche (que corresponde a la limpieza de la habitación y a la botella de agua). Poca posibilidad de salir del hotel si no es con coche.
