You can walk to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot from Walt Disney World Swan Resort, making this an easy choice if you’re in Florida to take on the theme parks. The enormous pool and selection of restaurants are the cherries on the cake.

The Walt Disney World Swan Resort is the perfect base for Disney World adventures. It’s a mega-resort (easily spotted, thanks to the two oversized swans perched on the roof) that shares facilities with the neighbouring Dolphin and Swan Reserve hotels. So, why plump for this hotel? Well, a deciding factor has got to be its proximity to both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios – it’s walkable to both. And there’s complimentary transport to other parts of Walt Disney World, including The Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Also, as the Swan Resort is an official Disney resort, you’ll get early entry to the theme parks. All convincing stuff. And there’s more! A three-acre waterpark is a perfect respite from the Florida sunshine. A waterslide and poolside games keep everyone entertained when you’re taking a breather from the Parks. The neighbouring Swan Reserve has a spa to slink off to. The Swan Resort isn’t just big on recreation, it’s big on dining. There are eight restaurants, including a fancy steakhouse and places for bar snacks, quick service dining, and buffets. And if you’re wondering about the rooms, they’re kitted out in a blue and white palette and are light, bright, and spacious enough for two adults and two kids to share.

Locally Paid Fees & Taxes: Expect to pay approximately $35 per room per night for hotel resort fees and local taxes.
