The Swan, Swan Reserve & Dolphin Resorts
While these resorts are not Disney resorts, they are located on Disney property and have access to Disney’s complimentary transportation system. There’s no overlooking the larger-than-life exterior and light-hearted interior of this deluxe-level Resort, located between Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios and near Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park and Magic Kingdom Park. Character Dining, and 18 restaurants and lounges combined are just a few of the offerings of these hotels.
So, there you have it. With all the hotel options available at the Walt Disney World Resort, which one will you choose?
