Walt Disney World Swan Reserve 

A premium option at the heart of the action

This modern resort is in a prime location in Walt Disney World, within walking distance of Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT.

Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is part of Marriott’s Autograph Collection, bringing an elevated hospitality experience, but it’s still considered a Disney Deluxe Resort. That means you can enjoy extended hours in the Disney theme parks and take advantage of complimentary buses and boats to get to them, which depart every 15-20 minutes or so. However, it’s worth noting that you can’t use a Disney Dining Plan here if you are weighing up the benefits of paying for a lot of your food and drink upfront.

Why we love Walt Disney World Swan Reserve

  • Cross the road and you can enjoy all the pools and restaurants of the hotel’s sister resorts – Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin – extending your swimming pool options to six and your dining options to 23.

  • It is a perfect choice if you don’t necessarily want the Disney theming you’ll find in nearby hotels but want the extra perks and convenience of being within Walt Disney World.

  • Evening childcare is available for ages five to 12 at Camp Dolphin so that you can enjoy a relaxing evening at one of the resort’s signature restaurants.

  • Some rooms have a view of EPCOT, from where you can have a private view of the nightly fireworks through floor to ceiling windows. For a balcony, you’ll need to upgrade to a suite.
