Frog Family Tips

  • Once you’ve booked your stay, don’t froget to download the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin App for the latest news on activity schedules, openings, and hours of operation.
  • Be sure to hop down to Tangerine for poolside views while enjoying a signature tangerine-flavored popsicle.
  • Adult frogs will enjoy the specialty food and drink pairings at Stir, available exclusively for Walt Disney World Swan Reserve guests.
  • 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.
  • Request an EPCOT®-facing room and you may just get a private viewing of the fireworks through the expansive floor-to-ceiling windows.
  • Take advantage of the free access to the adjacent Walt Disney World Swan Hotel and Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel’s amenities and restaurants–guests have free access.
  • Tadpoles will love paddling around in the swan paddleboats, an included perk with the daily resort fee.
  • Hop over to Disney’s Fantasia Gardens, just footsteps away from the Walt Disney Swan Reserve, for an enjoyable mini-golf adventure for the whole frog family.

Best For

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