This is one of the reasons I got married... me and the kids get dropped off at the door while DH has to do the parking!

I never thought about staying here but it looks like you get disney perks in a much nixer hotel room. Do the swan or dolphin have concierge club and what can you tell me about the pools...specifically how deep are they? Thanks

No club level, discontinued a number of years ago.

Pools are great, not sure the depth.

Here are lots of photos..

I know there is a parking charge for the hotel. Is there also a parking charge to park at the parks, or is it like other on-site hotels--parking at the parks is free? Thanks!

Parking is free at the theme parks for S/D guests.

I heard on the podcast this week that they were in the process of rehabing the rooms. Anyone seen a rehabed room?

With the size of the two resorts, I think there is a constant state of rehab of rooms going on.

Ok; I like what I'm seeing and plan to book for next spring (when able) but have some questions. Can I book disney dining plan because I couldn't add it on disney website and can I use disney gift cards at swan or dolphin restaurants or stores? Thanks for any help!

No Disney dining plan. You can use Disney gift cards at either of the Disney gift shops.

Pool depth - from what I remember - towards the edge is is 4 feet and towards the middle it is either 6 or 7 feet, especially near the slide exit. No zero entry. There are ladders to get in and out - but we have always just get in and out from the edge of the pool. It's an in-ground pool - easy to do.

DH just book the the Swan for us for the 3rd weekend in May to celebrate our 19th Anniversary. I usually stay at the value resort so I hope this will be a worthwhile splurge. Thanks for the great review. Does anyone know of a nice restaruant in S/D where we can dine at on Saturday...one fancy enough that I can wear my little black dress?
