We LOVE the swan! We love that you can stay on site at Disney, without a car, and not go broke! We love that you can get a heavenly bed while being on site at Disney also. The Swan is the only place that can happen! It is SO close to all of the Disney action and you get free transportation. The Swan is on the lake with the boardwalk and all of it's fabulous restaurants! The Swan shares a pool with the Dolphin. It is a very nice pool and I'm sure in the summer is wonderful! However, in October it was a bit chilly to be in. We still return though!
