Nothing new, but some fresh pics from last week! And to denvergirl - all rooms have been updated at Swan & Dolphin in the last few years.

I know next to nothing about Swan and Dolphin. They're like these mysterious resorts on Disney property . So, it was really great to browse this thread and get more of an idea of what it's all about.

Difference Between the Swan and Dolphin?

Hoping to stay at the Swan or Dolphin with my 20 yr old DD this December, I have never stayed at either one, is there a difference between the two?

Check out this thread:
http://disboards.com/showthread.php?...0#post44720010

It will give you great information on both the Swan and the Dolphin, with some of the differences listed. Most of it really is a matter of preference. We prefer the Dolphin because it is bigger, has a great "people watching" lobby with comfy couches (we like to have a nightcap after a long day at the parks) more food choices and the pool areas are larger. The Swan, however, is more cozy and quiet. Their beds are queens, where the Dolphin are "double+" (not quite a queen, but a little bigger than a regular double)

Read through the thread and see what you think!

This is my 1st attempt at posting photos.

This is from our trip this past Thanksgiving. We stayed in the Swan but this tree is in the Dophin lobby.


From our room in the Swan (872 I think.)






Swan exterior.

Boardwalk View

Hi Folks,
I'll be staying at the Swan for the first time in Sept. We have a Boardwalk view with a balcony. Does anyone have a photo of what this view will look like?
Thanks

So 2 friends and I will be at the Dolphin Friday night-Sunday. From looking at the pictures, the rooms look a little outdated and definitely not up to "Disney" standards. Has anyone stayed there recently???

We had dinner at the Garden Grove at the Swan on Sunday April 29th for our DS's birthday. It was very good! And we didn't even know there would be characters. Pluto & Goofy were there!
