Would you consider the Swan/Dolphin a Value, Mod, or Deluxe?

    Correct. The only thing you do not get is ME which can be a deal breaker for those flying in. You also do not get a KTTWC that allows charging in the parks. We get around this by just getting a disney gift card before we leave and using that.

    My niece flew and was meeting us. She got a shred ride through Mears. It was $20 or $30.

    Deluxe! We love Swan/Dolphin, especially when they offer a good Teacher's rate. We wouldn't be able to stay deluxe otherwise.

    I agree with the PP that said that it feels just as Disney as other hotels- you can see Epcot from the hotel, walk to Hollywood Studios, have the view of all the other Epcot resorts, hear the sound of the boat horn each morning (such a Disney sound!), they have a Disney gift shop, etc.

    We stayed at the Swan Hotel August 2011 for a few nights just before staying at the Poly Club Level. The Swan is Deluxe with no doubt! It is a great location as you are right in the middle of Epcot (walk) and Hollywood Sudios (walk or boat). I felt very much at Disney, but my wife felt some of the Disney magic was not there at the Swan Hotel Resort. I thought the magic was there, though. We booked under some other special that was less than the teacher discount. I think it was the AAA discount that was cheaper than the teacher discount (at the time). So, check around a little to make sure that your teacher discount brings your cost down the most. But, it's a great price for a Deluxe Hotel. Right? Have fun.
