Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin is making their own magic for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World with the opening of its newest addition, the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve.
The 14-story hotel, located adjacent to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin and within walking distance to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, features 349 guest rooms — including 151 suites — with incredible floor-to-ceiling views of the resort. Other features include Amare, the signature Mediterranean restaurant; a grab-n-go café; scenic pool area with elevated deck and fire pit; and an array of Walt Disney World guest benefits, including more time in the theme parks with early entry and extended evening hour benefits.
“With its relaxing atmosphere, fascinating design, stunning views, perfect proximity, and adjacent location to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, guests have every option imaginable for a magical getaway,” said Sean Varney, area general manager. “This is the moment we have all been waiting for and we look forward to offering an experience like nothing else, thanks to a location that’s like nowhere else.”
The top-floor venue, The Vue, is an exclusive rooftop space that offers views of the surrounding area, and is great for meetings, weddings, and other special events. In total, the property has more than 15,000 square feet of meeting space, including two ballrooms and 12 meeting rooms, and more than 13,000 square feet of outdoor event space.
The design of the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is a tribute to the environment surrounding it. The exterior building design “recreates the reflective light from the hotel’s scenic Crescent Lake,” while the interior offers a tropical feel that blurs the lines between indoors and out with lush greenery and tropical murals on each floor. The tropical theme continues along the hotel’s exterior landscape, with orange trees lining the entryway and poolside areas as a nod to the region’s citrus history.
Guests staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve will have full access to all of the amenities at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, including the Mandara Spa, six pools, 22 restaurants and lounges, preferred tee times on the nearby Disney championship golf courses, and four additional signature restaurants: Shula’s Steak House, Todd English’s bluezoo, Il Mulino and Kimonos.
