5.9 Fair
We had booked a 13-day stay at the new Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, but since that hotel has been delayed and won't open for another several months, our reservation was changed by Marriott to the Walt Disney World Swan. While we had booked a premium room with a guaranteed view of Epcot in our booking at the Swan Reserve, the room we were given at the Swan did not have a view of Epcot or Hollywood Studios - instead we were put in a room facing the opposite direction away from the parks and looking at the still-under-construction Swan Reserve, which was disappointing given the premium we had paid for the Epcot view room. If you've booked a room with either an Epcot view or Hollywood Studios view at the Swan Reserve and they switch you to the Swan, be warned that you likely will end up with no view despite paying more. The Swan (and the sister property Walt Disney World Dolphin) are within a 15-20 minute walk of Epcot and Hollywood Studios and also offer boat service to these two parks, so it is very convenient if your Disney World plans are focused on these two parks. If you want to go to other Disney parks (such as Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom) or to Disney Springs, the change in the bus service to a third-party offering instead of the Disney bus transportation is a major inconvenience. The bus transportation from the Swan and Dolphin to those other parks and Disney Springs will drop you off a very long distance away from them. For example, if you are going to Magic Kingdom, the bus will NOT take you to the park, but instead drops you off at the Transportation & Ticket Center - and then you need to take the monorail, a ferry, another bus or walk from the TTC to Magic Kingdom. If you go to Disney Springs, the bus from the Swan drops you off at the West Side area, and then you need to walk a good 20 minutes to get to the main entrance of Disney Springs (where the Disney bus system drop offs are). It's very unfortunate that the Swan and Dolphin decided to end their contract with Disney bus transportation, as you'll need to include at least 30 minutes in your planned travel time to get to Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom and Disney Springs. Given the premium you are paying to stay at a hotel on Disney property (even though it is not a Disney-owned hotel), the bus service to those parks other than Epcot and Hollywood Studios are no better than the bus service you would get staying at a much cheaper hotel option a little further away.
3.9 Poor
The hotel is pretty, but because of covid, personnel is not picking up trash (never seen this before), changing sheets or towels. You need to call them, which is super annoying because when you return from the parks the last thing you want is to call them for service. We realized about this the second day late at night when we returned and we found everything as we left it. Also, beware if you arrive with a car: not only you must pay the $35 + taxes per resort per day but also you need to pay for parking: 29 usd per day per day for self parking, otherwise they have valet parking, more expensive. This resort does not include breakfast either and the cafeteria inside of the hotel is pretty expensive.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Good breakfast
8.8 Very Good
Pros:Great breakfast. Bed very comfortable. Clean
Cons:Wondering if staying in the park is worth the extra money. While staff was very helpful, it is a big and busy place.
8.2 Very Good
Pros:The staff at the Swan (and ALL of Disney) were all very pleasant and had WONDERFUL attitudes.
Cons:The fact that there was NO shuttle service to Epcot or Hollywood was disappointing...yes there was a boat ride and that was fine, but it's still a diesel boat that spews out awful smelling fumes and it took about 30 minutes total to get to/from either EPCOT or HOLLYWOOD Studios, due to the wait times for the boats and lines. We ended up walking most of the time, except at the end of a long day at Hollywood (11.5 mi walking in 7 hours as the Gondola was broken both days). There should have been a shuttle option. Beds were just OK as they dipped in the middle. I thought it was perhaps just our bed, but my 9 yo son's queen bed did the same when my wife and I swapped with him. When you pay that kind of 5 star price, you expect 5 star accommodations....what we got was about 3.5 stars. Resort fees are, indeed, ridiculous. We were going to have an omelet at the breakfast buffet, but the price was so ridiculous (approx. $30 per adult and $20 per kid) that we ended up going to First Watch, being waited on, eating a great meal....and, oh yea, it was less than half the price of the buffet at the Swan. I will say that my wife and I ate dinner at the Italian place in the Swan and it was very good, with excellent service. Kimonos had excellent, fresh sashimi and all three of us really enjoyed our meal and the service there was outstanding. I probably wouldn't stay at the Swan again because there are superior options for less $$, but the convenience was very nice as you could walk from the Swan to EPCOT easily (about .75 mi) and Hollywood as well (about 1.2 mi). Anyway, I would opt (given the price difference) for staying at a Marriott or Westin that's close....there is one with an amazing waterpark (if you have kids or are a big kid, yourself) as part of your stay, and the price is at least $100 less per night. Let's face it, that adds up. They also have a shuttle that brings you to and from the Disney resorts. I would still give the Swan Resort at Disney a solid B, but it just feels like too much $$$ for what you get.
7.7 Good
Pros:Got to see the firework shows from the window in the room and in the causeway. Free water bottles in the room.
Cons:The bed wasn’t that comfortable and shower pressure could have been better.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Despite this hotel’s age, the facilities are quite nice and maintained/refurbished very well. We love the comfortable beds, coffee/breakfast cafe near the lobby, and hotel restaurants. The short boat ride to other Disney Resorts and Epcot is great!
Cons:The coffee bar could really be expanded to include more tables. On the mornings that we visited, the counter servers were very busy with a long line of customers. Strollers and kids everywhere! Not enough tables for customers and no staff available to help keep the seating area clean. Tables rather than sofas on the other side of the hallway might be more useful and a staff member to keep this area clean would be great! Dining chairs could use new upholstery. They are getting heavy use by a lot of customers!
8.5 Very Good
Pros:Loved that we were in walking distance to the boardwalk; we could also catch the water taxi to Epcot and the shuttle to the Disney Parks. Housekeeping staff was awesome!
Cons:Not enough reasonably priced casual dining on the resort.
5.1 Fair
Pros:The proximity to the Disney parks is wonderful. Taking the ferry to Epcot and Hollywood Studios or the bus to the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom was very convenient for our vacation.
Cons:Nothing about the hotel signals that it is on the Disney Property. That would have been okay though because we wanted a more adult hotel for our honeymoon. It was the terrible value for money that means we will never be back. Housekeeping forgot to clean our room (because of the option to opt into a green program, I can see how this mistake might be made when many other rooms decide not to have their room serviced daily). But we were on our honeymoon and wanted this. When we came back and found our room had not been cleaned, we called guest services, which was nothing but a recording that was on a loop. So we went to the front desk, where we were told it was too late to have our room serviced. The staff was never apologetic about the fact that they had already placed us in a room with 2 beds, when we were on our honeymoon, and now our room was not even being cleaned. I have stayed at Westin hotels before that were wonderful. This hotel was not on the level I've come to expect from the Westin brand. I would not come back here and would not recommend it to others.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Beautiful hotel! The character dining at Garden Grove restaurant was awesome, have your kids bring their autograph books with them. Staff was friendly and very accommodating to families/kids. We ate dinner at Il Mulino restaurant and despite being more upscale Italian, the waiter was very engaging with our kids and was happy to make them chocolate milk with dinner! The grotto pool was beautiful, large, and poolside food/beverage service was on the ball.
Cons:Nothing really not to like, just some advice: Prices are expensive but hold value. This isn't a Super 8 but then again they treat you way better than a Super 8. Just remember EVERYTHING at Disney World is expensive. Also this: this hotel is on Disney property but is NOT a Disney hotel. You still get the same perks like early park entry and free shuttles to the parks, but what you don't get is free shuttle from/to the airport on the Disney Magical Express. A Disney rep will tell you to use Mears transportation saying it's cheaper than a taxi but don't. Our taxi, with tip, was cheaper than Mears' fare plus we didn't have to wait the half hour for the Mears shuttle. We were in a taxi in about 5 minutes at the airport.
