Another great resort on Disney property

My family and I stayed at the Swan the weekend before Valentines Day. We stayed for 3 nights just ask a 4 day weekend get away. It was a great place to stay and very beautiful. From check in to us leaving the staff was excellent and very polite. We loved the fact it was so close to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios, which we walked to each of them. It was also only a bus ride away to Disney Springs and Magic Kingdom and we didn't have to wait very long. There are also many dining options between the two resorts. The rooms were very clean and anything we asked for it happened. We arrived and called down to ask for a pack and play for our 6 month old. We left to go eat dinner and when we got back it was in our room set up for us. I would recommend this resort to others.

One Shining Light...

Not the best experience. Our company made the trip a great experience but the hotel did not. Customer service was lacking, poor communication on signs and just overall no one seemed to want to help. The day we were trying to check in, we had a 3 hour wait and I had a very fussy 2 year old. We went back several times and I spoke to a great young lady named Melissa who was so helpful in trying to get us into the room. We had to escalate it to a manager. Melissa was professional and was persistent on helping us, being that she understood that I had no where to go to get him settled. She offered us a free voucher as an apology. Her efforts got us in our room in 15 mins. She was the shining light of that trip. The paddle boat voucher never got used, because they were closed even after confirming they would be open. Just overall poor experience but Melissa was great.

Amazing stay

Stayed here with my girlfriend for a post Valentine's Day get away. The check in was a smooth process very nice front desk agent (Laura). She answered any question we had and she gave some great recommendations. The room was on the 4th floor with a balcony view of the hotels "beach" which was very nice. The only downside id say are the shuttles from Disney Springs back to the hotel take kinda long but not to big a deal in all honesty. The check out was also very easy, Mark was great as well. Biggest thing here is the staff great job by all of you.

Effecient business venue

Stayed just for one day but very efficient friendly check in. The room was clean, comfortable King bed. The room overlooked the front of the hotel and roofline I hope the other side was more scenic. They started cleaning out my room before I had checked out. Not having access after the early morning meeting was disappointing.

No Magic

First of all, this should not be called the "Walt Disney" World Swan and Dolphin. No Disney magic or Disney fabulous customer service. One day we were headed to Blizzard Beach and there was a big portable sign saying "Transfer from Disney Springs to Typhoon Lagoon" at the bus stop. Luckily I knew that Typhoon Lagoon is closed for months due to refurbishing and that Blizzard Beach is open with a transfer from Animal Kingdom. "Oh, I guess someone placed the wrong sign outside" was the response when I called the front desk. The woman told me just to leave the sign and they would send someone out. Knowing that customer service is lacking here, I told her I would close the sign and leave behind the garbage can so guests don't potentially waste an hour going to Disney Springs and search for a non-existent bus. Two days later it was still there!We've stayed at moderate and deluxe resorts 4 times in the past and will definitely be selecting a true Disney hotel on our next visit. We selected the Dolphin as it was one of the conference hotels for my husband and we brought our kids. It does offer some of the Disney benefits, such as magic hours and bus/boat park service, but it doesn't offer magic bands for room entry or purchases and does not include the magical express transportation from the airport. Keep the resort fee $25/day (which thankfully was waved for the conference) and cost of airport transportation in mind when comparing this to other Disney hotels.The proximity to Epcot and Hollywood Studios is definitely positive. Overall, it is a decent hotel (although extremely crowded - I counted over 100 people in the lobby when I was waiting) and I would have been happier with it if it wasn't listed as a Disney hotel and I came in with lower expectations.
