The **New** Swan and Dolphin Resort thread ~ April 2012 ~ Please read post #1

Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort



You'll likely not need to read the whole thread to find answers to the most common inquiries and even many obscure ones! Pause on Post #1 and take a look! You can even do a quick search on this web page by pressing [Cntrl] + [F] and typing a keyword search.

In the heart of the Walt Disney World® Resort, the award-winning Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin is your gateway to Central Floridas greatest theme parks and attractions. The resort is located in between Epcot® and Disney-MGM Studios (soon to be Disney's Hollywood Studios as of Jan.1, 2008) and nearby Disneys Animal Kingdom® Theme Park and Magic Kingdom® Park.

The Orlando International Airport is the most convenient choice if you are flying into Orlando. From there, its just a short 20 minute drive to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin.

Once on property, Guests enjoy complimentary scheduled transportation around the Walt Disney World® Resort. Take a leisurely cruise on Disneys Friendship Launch to Epcot® and Disney-MGM Studios or take a Disney shuttle bus to all other areas within Walt Disney World® Resort. The buses and Friendship launch arrive at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin every 15 20 minutes so you can come and go as you please with very little wait time.

Features of our different suite types.

Deluxe Alcove (Located at the Swan and Dolphin)
Deluxe Alcoves are nestled in the corners of our unique buildings, providing striking views of our magical surroundings. These rooms are larger than a standard guest room and feature a distinct alcove for dining and/or working.

Almost twice the size of a standard guestroom, our Premium Studio provides comfortable bedding with lots of extra space for the working professional or the vacationing family. The sitting area can be used for entertaining or converted into additional sleeping space.

Governor's Suite (Located at the Swan and Dolphin)
The ultimate in world-class elegance and sophistication, our Governors Suite offers a spacious, elegantly appointed parlor, complete with wet bar, connected to a spacious, lavish guestroom.

Views

I think this is one of the most asked questions. Epcot Views are in the far East Wing. MGM Views and Pool Views are in the far West Wing. There are 9 floors on the wings. If you want to try for a view of Illuminations. Your request would be in the far East Wing, upper floor with an unobstucted view of Epcot. We have been able to see Illuminations from the upper floors while staying in the "triangle" but there are no balconies up on these floors so it is much harder to see. We also could see MGM and Fantasmic off in the distance from these upper "triangle" rooms.

Occupancy Limits for the Swan and Dolphin.

The Swan has an occupancy limit of 4 per room. The Dolphin has an occupancy limit of 5 per room. A rollaway bed can be obtained for a fee by calling housekeeping. The fee for a rollaway bed is currently $25.00 per night.

Will the Swan and Dolphin transfer my luggage?

One of the benefits to staying at a Disney resort is that the resort will transfer your luggage as you change resorts during your stay. The Swan and Dolphin is not considered a Disney resort, but they have been known to extend this same luxury. All you need to do is call the Bell Services of your current resort and ask if they will transfer your luggage. We have stayed at the Dolphin numerous times and they have always provided us this courtesy.

Is there a resort fee?

The resort service fee at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort has been increased to $17 +tax from April 1 2013. The service fee includes:

Unlimited domestic long distance and local calls
Unlimited access to the resorts health club facilities
In room high-speed Internet access
2 bottles of water daily

I heard there's a charge to park at the resort -- is this true?

Yes, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts charge for self-parking as well as valet parking. Self parking rate is $15 per day and Valet is $20 per day

When can I check in?

Check in time at the Dolphin is 3 p.m. Early check in is available if your room is ready; if not, luggage storage is available for later check in. Check out time is 11 a.m. Guests can usually check out no later than 12:30 pm without penalty. Late check-outs are until 4 p.m. and are $30 extra... any later than that you'll be charged for a half-day (unless you stay for an additional night, then it is a full day's charge).

Starwood Preferred Guests can earn miles, inquire at check-in.

Since the Swan and Dolphin aren't considered Disney Resorts, do I still get the Disney resort amenities?

Guests at the Swan and Dolphin enjoy many of the same amenities as Disney operated resort guests. A stay at the Swan and Dolphin includes WDW transportation to all Disney attractions, theme park free parking (just show your room key), Extra Magic Hour (EMH) privileges, package delivery to your hotel from the parks, preferred tee times, and access to guest services. If you're staying at the Dolphin you can also purchase your Disney tickets right there at their guest services desk.

However, unlike other Disney resorts, charging privileges don't extend beyond the Swan and Dolphin. All purchases and dining expenses ONLY AT the Swan and the Dolphin, can be charged to your pre-arranged account.

Starwood Preferred Guests can earn miles and points, inquire at check-in.

Transportation Options...

Dolphin guests enjoy full use of all of the WDW transportation services. The buses and boats start picking up resort guests one hour prior to the Parks' scheduled opening times. This includes the Extra Magic Hour (EMH) times. Buses run directly from the front of the hotel to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney (Marketplace, West Side and Pleasure Island), Typhoon Lagoon, and Blizzard Beach. Some of the buses service only Swan and Dolphin resorts; others service the Boardwalk and Yacht and Beach Club as well.

Epcot can be reached by catching a Friendship launch (boat) from the courtyard/water-way between the Swan and Dolphin, or by taking a short stroll across the BoardWalk and to Epcot's International Gateway and World Showcase. The walk is a pleasant one and takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Note that the Epcot and Disney-MGM Studios launches are shared with the Yacht & Beach Clubs and the BoardWalk. If you miss the launch to Epcot, you can walk over and catch it at the BoardWalk or the Yacht Club. Please note.. the Boardwalk is the last resort stop on this transportation leg.

Disney-MGM Studios can be reached one of two ways; via the Studios Friendship launch or by walking. The boat launch is found in the courtyard between the Swan and Dolphin. The walking path begins directly behind the Boardwalk's Atlantic Dance Hall and continues to the Disney-MGM Studios Parking lot. This is about a 15 to 20 minute walk. The boat transportation to the MGM (Disney's Hollywood Studios) is much quicker, because the Swan and Dolphin is the last resort stop on that transportation leg.

Town cars are also available should you want a ride directly to another Disney resort or the Parks. The valet can assist you with getting a car. They are usually parked out front and will pick you up in minutes.





Swimming Pools

POOLS, BEACH AND ELECTRIC BOATS

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. Our 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.

Work out in our crystal blue lap pool, which was recently named #1 of 10 hotel lap pools in the country by AthleticMindedTraveler.com! Or take a leisurely ride around Crescent Lake on an electric Fun Boat!

Enjoy a day of sun-splashed fun for the whole family. Choose from a variety of things to do:

Camp Dolphin

There are 2 sessions available to children ages 4-12. The evening session is from 5:30pm to Midnight. It includes dinner, activities, trip to the Game Room, video games, arts and crafts and Disney movies. The cost is $10.00 per child per hour. Your child must be dropped off by 7:00pm. Reservations are required and cancellation less than 2 hours prior will result in a full charge. The programs are staffed by counselors. Camp Dolphin is located in the Dolphin hotel on the first floor next to the Health Studio.


Recreational activities at the Dolphin and Swan Resort

There is a beautiful white sand beach with Swan watercraft rentals. The beach is quiet and peaceful in the hours after dark, which makes for a romantic spot. There are 4 tennis courts and a basketball court that are kept lighted throughout the night, for those that still have energy left over after a day at the parks. A large play area for children is located near the Grotto. A jogging and walking path winds around the Dolphin and Swan. Add to that the boardwalk around Crescent Lake (near the Yacht & Beach Clubs and the BoardWalk), and you'll have quite an extensive walk or jog.

Electric Boat Rentals - Recline and relax on a leisurely ride around Crescent Lake on a Chaise Lounger which can accommodate up to two adults.

There are 2 health clubs servicing the complex -- one at the Dolphin and one at the Swan. Massage therapy and Body Treatments are available for a fee at the health clubs. Saunas, whirlpools, and aerobics are also offered.

For those that like their indoor activities a little less strenuous, there is a video game room on the lower level.

Fantasia Gardens is a few minutes walk away. This miniature golf adventure opened in the spring of 1996, and includes two 18-hole courses. There is something for everyone-- fun and Disney magic on the Fantasia Gardens course and a more challenging game on Fantasia Fairways.

Don't forget to explore activities offered at the nearby BoardWalk and Yacht & Beach Clubs.

Guest Laundry Information

There is a coin operated laundry located on the first floor of The Dolphin. Washers are $1.50 per load and dryers are $1.50 for 45 minutes. The machines do not take quarters however. You must convert them to special 25 cent tokens at the laundry.
