Transportation Information

On foot: The Swan Hotel has easy pedestrian access to the Dolphin Hotel (connected by a walkway), Disney's Hollywood Studios, Epcot, the Boardwalk Resort, and the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts; none of which require walking on open roads. The Fantasia Gardens miniature golf courses are also within walking distance but do require crossing a public street.

Bus: Though not a Disney-run hotel, the Swan and Dolphin are part of the free bus network at Walt Disney World. Direct routes are available for Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom as well as Downtown Disney. Other destinations will require transferring.
