The Boardwalk area is just a great location for all things Disney! On Epcot's doorstep.... The hotel is within walking distance to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios and has several great restaurants including Kimonos and Il Mulino. The pool area was quite large and fun with a waterslide, several hot tubs and a waterfall. Perfect for all the family. And...

I'd never experienced anything Disney before staying at the swan, but they take service to another level. The attention to detail from the staff was fantastic, we were upgraded to a honeymoon suite, given free Champaign & a fruit basket on arrival. We received a call the next day just to ask if we were happy with everything in our...

We just spent 5 nights at the Swan. Great location, good food choices, good pools, good transportation options. The problem was our room - it was so musty and damp. My 9 year old said "welcome to your stuffy room!" every time she opened the door. Our only options was to freeze ourselves. I just missed two days of work...

Shout out to Emily Ruby, assistant pastry chef, who made my friend's birthday great with hand-made roses for her cake! Also to Andrew - the room service captain - who above and beyond his duties. Personally bringing her cake to our room and singing Happy Birthday!! Besides the construction in the morning - it was a great room!

We stayed at the Swan & the Dolphin. This review is for the SWAN property only. I will review the Dolphin at a later time. The property was easy to find and a great location inside Disney. They have water travel between Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and bus service for the other Disney parks. The Boardwalk is just a short...

I recently stayed here for a week with my sister for our Disney World vacation.

We were not disappointed! The hotel is...
