We did Swan last year and felt it was just a standard business hotel - no magic, didn't like food options - but great location. Did not give us a vacation/luxury feel. Buildings themselves are outdated too. We are staying at BC this yr.
I think the difference was $75 per night, because I had already factored in the additional cost of a rental car (and they were very expensive for that weekend on hotwire), the resort fee and the parking fee. If you take those out of the mix, Dolphin is about $150-160 per night cheaper. Since we are DME users, we wouldn't get a rental car otherwise, so I needed that factored in for an accurate comparison.
I appreciate everyone's thoughts. We will certainly be trying Swan/Dolphin soon. However, I was able to book a BWV preferred room through dvcrequest.com for the same price as the Swan/Dolphin, so we are going that direction for this trip and will hit the Swan/Dolphin later this year.
