  • Special Disney benefits for guests, including ability to book FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance, Extra Magic Hours and character dining
  • Free transportation to Disney Parks, including boat transportation to Disney's Hollywood Studios® and Epcot®
  • 3 acres of pool and water areas, including a children's pool, 4 whirlpools, a waterslide, lush landscaping and pool activities

  • Guests receive free theme park parking and priority access to Disney parks during sold-out days
  • Resort offers washers and dryers on-site; laundry services available

Keep in Mind

  • While an on resort property, guests do not enjoy all the benefits of Disney Resort Hotel guests, including free MagicBands
  • Resort charges a daily resort fee, $30 per day plus tax
  • Standard rooms can sleep only 4 adults
  • Rooms near the convention center and on the first floor can be noisy
  • Hotel charges $25 per day plus tax for self-parking

Notable Facts

  • Opened in Jan. 1990 by the Tishman Group
  • Resort group has a 99-year lease agreement with Walt Disney World® Resort
  • The dolphin statues that adorn the top of the resort span 56-feet tall

Frog Family Tips

  • Ask for a high-floor room with a view of the Disney parks–you can see the IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth fireworks from Epcot®!
  • Request a room with a balcony to best enjoy the fireworks displays
  • Grab a bite to eat at Fountain or Cabana Bar and Beach Club for a casual lunch or dinner–both restaurants serve traditional American cuisine
  • Consider upgrading to valet services to avoid taking a longer walk from the parking area to the hotel
  • Ask for a room closer to the elevators to avoid a long walk down hallways
  • Take advantage of the free access to the adjacent Walt Disney World Resort Swan Resort’s amenities and restaurants–guests have free access

Best For

  • Families, couples and adults — especially those who prefer Starwood Hotels — who want to be on Disney's Boardwalk entertainment area with walking distance to Epcot® and Disney's Hollywood Studios®
