Both are beautiful. The Swan is smaller and more romantic, the Dolphin is larger and has more dining options. I love the Dolphin lobby. The Swan has Queen beds and I think Dolphin has doubles. Both have King bed rooms. Both have the same amenities, boats, buses etc and share a lap pool and the big pool. I think they both have a more adult feel to them then the Disney resorts. We have no kids so that's a plus to me but a negative to those with kids.

I love these 2 resorts. Even with the $23 a day resort fee it is still cheaper than the deluxe hotels and is every bit as luxurious and beautiful, if not more than the others. Be aware there are fees for parking your car and there is no ME from the airport, you need a cab or town car to pick you up and bring you to the airport.

You will be happy with either I think. Have a great trip!!

Our vote us the Dolphin because of the great lobby - we enjoy having a drink and people watching on the comfy couches! The restaurant options are terrific and we love the Cabana Bar area by the pool. The Swan is lovely, but more serene. We happen to enjoy the hustle & bustle of the Dolphn! I'm sure either will be great!

Thanks girls!! We will actually have a 10 week old with us and will be traveling with other family with kids. hmmmmm

The dolphin is the one that I was looking at at more.

We usually stay at the BW or BWV but they are currently sold out. Want to stay in that area as the wedding is there.

Thanks again!!

I would definitely pick the Dolphin if you are traveling with children ! Picabu is open 24 hours. Fountain ice cream shop is right there. Fresh is great for a leisurely breakfast. There is also an arcade and there are more pool options. :-) "SingingMom" ....Sent from my iPad using DISBoards

If you want to be in that area, what about YC/BC?
