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.

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.
