Overview

The Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin Resorts are located in the Epcot Resort area and are owned and operated by Starwood Hotels and Resorts. Both hotels are Deluxe Disney Resorts, located next to Disney's Boardwalk entertainment area.

They are within a convenient walking distance from the Epcot World Showcase International Gateway and Disney Studios. Disney water taxis are also available to Epcot and Disney Studios.

See the reviews of my stays at the Walt Disney World Swan and Walt Disney World Dolphin.

 

Features

Pools - Get ready for fun in the sun! With five heated pools - not to mention whirlpools, fountains and waterfalls - all nestled in an exotic tropical environment, you'll find the perfect spot to relax in the shade or tan in the sun.

The expansive pool area provides the best of both worlds: quiet alcoves for those who prefer a private place to unwind and more lively areas with seasonal disc jockeys and entertainment for those who prefer a little more excitement.

Fitness - Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin offer two state-of-the art health clubs equipped to satisfy even the most demanding fitness enthusiast.

Mandara Spa - Mandara Spa blends the Deluxe Disney resorts unique Walt Disney World Dolphin architecture with its signature Balinese style to provide a fresh and original setting where guests may indulge in world-class pampering and beauty services.
