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.
  • Ask for a high-floor room with a view of the Disney parks!
  • Request a room with a balcony to best enjoy the fireworks displays
  • Grab a bite to eat at Splash Terrace or Garden Grove 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 resort
  • 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 Dolphin Hotel and Walt Disney World Swan Reserve 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.

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®.
