About the hotel
Deluxe Class Modern Hotel. Centrally located in the heart of the Walt Disney World Resort area, adjacent to Disney's Boardwalk entertainment district.

The Orlando International Airport is 25 minutes away by car.

Bedding is one king or two queens in the Swan wing.
The hotel's signature restaurants include: Shula's Steak Houses; Todd English's bluezoo freshest seafood with coastal cuisine; Palio's, a festive, casually elegant Italian bistro; and Kimonos Japanese Cuisine with an authentic Japanese sushi bar. In addition, the hotel has numerous fantastic restaurants to enjoy when you want to relax and eat without worrying about the dress code. They include the Fresh Mediterranean Market, Gulliver's Grill, Garden Grove Cafe, The Fountain, Cabana Bar & Grill and Splash Grill.
The exterior is truly an amazing, modern architectural marvel that has been described as "entertainment architecture"; the resort's theme is emphasized by a dolphin statue that graces the top of the hotel. The resort sits on 87 acres of beautifully landscaped lakefront property.
The lobby is surrounded by all types of guest services, including Disney ticket desk and tour desk. (0308/mp)
