I'll follow this up - off to a bad start but a better ending. Toilet bowl wasn't clean and had pee stains. The rest of the room was good. They brought housekeeping and they cleaned it well. On another note, my son got a bad cut because he fell and we didn't have access to the gift shop because it... More

This hotel is updated and looks very nice on the outside. To say the least it was very comfortable. I would stay here again. However, for next night of my stay things changed. As I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. I look at the mirror and I see something large and black moving. I focus... More

Contrary to other reviewers, we found the staff plentiful and very pleasant and helpful. Our room was pleasant, without being anything special. The location is good, and the proximity to the Boardwalk and lots of restaurants is a plus, as well as the bus and lake boat if you want to hit the parks. The cons for us were the... More

Stayed at the Swan for a long weekend in November......and what a treat! Several swimming pools, lovely room and transport back and forth to Disney with no problems! The only complaint was the lack of restaurants or anything reasonably-priced for that matter. The boat rides to the boardwalk were terrific as was the resort in general. Looking forward to returning.

We have stayed at the Swan many times now but this year was the best. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The property is clean and very handy to everything Disney. The boat service to Epcot and Hollywood Studios is very convenient. We had some great Guest Service Coordinators ( Alex, Amethyst and Nicole) who really went out... More

I attended a large convention that was based at the Dolphin, and for some reason I got bumped to the Swan. Boy, was I happy. First, the Swan is a smaller hotel so it is not as hectic. But the big plus is that all the Swan rooms have completed renovation and they are amazing. Extremely modern, pale aqua color... More

I have to say that I was very concerned prior to our stay at the Walt Disney Swan, given the tremendous range of reviews that appear on tripadvisor. However, I decided to take a chance based on a previous positive stay for a convention and the advantages of the location and the type of accommodation I was able to reserve.... More
