These two resorts are not Disney-owned, but they are located on Disney property and offer a lot of the same guest benefits as the Disney World Resort hotels! Between the dining options, location, transportation offerings, and more, we’re compiling the greatest things about these two underrated resorts!
Here’s why you should consider staying at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin!
Location, Location, Location!
It just wouldn’t be right if we didn’t start off with one of the greatest perks to staying at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin — the location! The resorts are located on Crescent Lake which connects Disney’s BoardWalk, EPCOT, and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
And, the best part? You can hop on complimentary Disney boat transportation from both resorts to any of these three locations! The hotels share a boat dock and are one of the stops on the continual loop between the parks and resorts that the Disney boats make throughout the day.
Plus, since they are located right in the middle of EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, you are only a short walk away from getting to the parks and Disney’s BoardWalk!
Another great thing about these resorts is that they have TONS of dining options — over 15 total! So, you can choose to have a nicer meal at one of the seven sit-down restaurants such as Garden Grove…
Just keep in mind that the two hotels are technically separate and dining options are located in both, though guests can choose to dine at the restaurants in either resort during their stay.
Use Travel Points
For those who are frequent travelers, a huge benefit of choosing to stay at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin is that you can actually book with your Marriott Points!
The hotels are considered a Category 6 by Marriott, so the point pricing is 40,000 during off-peak times, 50,000 during standard seasons, and 60,000 during peak seasons per night.
Plus, if you’re a Marriott member you can sometimes receive extra perks here, like free breakfast buffets and more.
Disney World Resort hotels don’t offer any ability to use travel points, so this can be a huge money saver if you’ve got some travel points stored up!
And, even if you’re not using travel points, these hotels are priced pretty low for how much you are getting access to and the location.
Depending on the time of year that you are planning your Disney World vacation, you can find room rates for as little as $192 (plus tax, resort fee, and parking) per night.
So, the pricing is pretty comparable with Disney’s Moderate Resorts, though you’ll be getting access to more dining options and will be conveniently located within walking distance of two Disney parks.
