PHOTO TOUR! The Walt Disney World Swan Resort Has Officially Reopened!

The Disney Resorts have started reopening all around Disney World’s property (and we’ve been taking you with us to look at everything)!

Swan and Dolphin Resorts

And, the Walt Disney World World Swan Resort has officially reopened today for guests to visit! However, the Disney World Dolphin Resort has been blocked off for the soccer players and officials on the MLS teams to stay at during their time at Disney World.

As the Swan Resort opens to guests, there are still restrictions on property for everyone visiting to keep people safe during this time.

The entryway to the Dolphin Resort is blocked off so guests are not able to go beyond the area…

As people enter the resort to check-in, there are markers on the ground to distance themselves from other guests. There are also plexiglass barriers between Cast Members and people at the desk…

Since the Dolphin Resort is closed, the shared pool is divided so guests can’t go towards the other side of the resort area.

  1. I’m wondering how many people are willing to pay the prices that these on site hotels charge without having access to all of those amenities that you book these places for in the first place? I wonder if off site hotels are doing better because of this?

  2. Thanks for the update! Can you say approximately how much of grotto pool is open? Looks like from the picture it is closed at bridge that is closer to dolphin, meaning about 2/3 of pool is open. Also, is the sand beach area open? Thanks.
