  • I have been traveling to Walt Disney World since 1972 and I continue to go because it is always changing and I've yet to see or do it all. I love the resorts, you feel a part of Disney the moment...  more »

  • We love to stay on Disney property when visiting the parks. This was our 3rd visit to Swan and Dolphin and first time staying at the Dolphin. We loved it. Easy transportation to Epcot or Hollywood Studios and the Boardwalk. All of our favorite stops. We especially like the Kareoke Japanese restaurant in the Swan, it's a favorite every stay. Can't go wrong with all the amenities at the Swan or Dolphin. Plenty of restaurants and shops too.
  • I really enjoyed staying here while I was in Disney a month ago. It was enjoyable, and convenient to get from the resort to the parks. It was more amazing that my family got a discount due to my father's job. I really like it here, and you won't regret it! But... since it isn't a Disney resort it does not have Disney Dining Plan or Magicbands provided so it made us have to buy some. I still love it here!
