Disney World Swan & Dolphin Hotel Discounts 2024

The Walt Disney World Swan, Walt Disney World Dolphin, and the Walt Disney World Reserve hotels are all located on Disney World property but they are not owned or operated by Disney. They are owned by Marriott which means these hotels have separate Disney World Swan & Dolphin discounts and specials than those Walt Disney World hotel discounts. The Disney World Swan and & Dolphin hotels are located near EPCOT and Hollywood Studios making them popular options for guests visiting the theme parks.

Since the Disney World Swan & Dolphin have their own discounts which are unique to watch Disney World offers, we have broken down all the current and best Disney World Swan & Dolphin discounts in our guide. To see why guests love the Disney Worl Swan & Dolphin so much, read our hotel review of the Disney World Swan Reserve and our review of the Swan & Dolphin resort.

Let's go through all the most current Disney World Swan & Dolphin discounts and discuss how they compare to the current Walt Disney World hotel discounts.

In terms of how the Disney World Swan & Dolphin compares to the other Walt Disney World hotels, it would fall in the “Deluxe” category in terms of the amenities. The closest Walt Disney World hotels to the Disney World Swan & Dolphin hotels include the Disney Beach Club, Disney Yacht Club Hotel, and Disney Boardwalk Hotel. They are within easy walking distance of Disney's Boardwalk.

The Disney World Swan & Dolphin hotels are also walkable to EPCOT which is a roughly 20-minute walk but there is also boat transportation offered from the Dolphin to both EPCOT and Hollywood Studios. Some included perks of staying at the Disney World Swan & Dolphin hotels include:

  • Complimentary transportation to Disney theme parks
  • Advance tee times on all four Disney golf courses
  • Complimentary parking at Disney theme parks with a room key and MyDisney experience app confirmation

You also have the same access to early theme park entry that other Walt Disney World guests enjoy so while these hotels are not operated by Disney, you receive many of the same perks as on-site hotel guests. Plus since the Swan & Dolphin hotels are considered deluxe hotels, they can also take advantage of Extended Evening Hours on select nights.

The Disney World Swan & Dolphin hotels also offer benefits for Marriott Bonvoy Members. Bonvoy Rewards members can take advantage of an array of program benefits, including earning Marriott Bonvoy points with each stay.

Guests can book Disney World Swan & Dolphin discount packages through these hotels directly to take advantage of special offers.

As always, we recommend comparing these prices to what our trusted travel partner Get Away Today has to offer to price check what is going to be the best Disney World Swan & Dolphin discount offer. My favorite part of their service is their promise to deliver you the lowest possible price. They’ll price monitor your hotel and apply any lower discount that is offered even after you book. Now, you can book the Swan and Dolphin Hotels directly on the Get Away Today website at a discount. 

You can also request a FREE Walt Disney World quote from Get Away Today and note that you also want to price out the Disney World Swan & Dolphin in addition to the official Walt Disney World Resort Hotels.

Another option for booking the hotel is through the Marriott rewards program. The Disney World Swan & Dolphins hotels are part of the Autograph Collection of Marriott hotels. This hotel is considered a Category 6 hotel meaning that a night here ranges from 40,000 to 60,000 points Bonvoy Marriott Loyalty Points. The point price depends on the category whether it is off-peak, standard, and peak.

Are the Disney World Swan & Dolphin Discounts Worth It?

Most of the discounts listed below offer the best rates for Annual Passholders and Florida residents so if you fall in these categories, they're going to be the best discounts you can find. As for the other special category rates, these will vary depending on if you qualify.

For example, the teacher discount listed below offers up to 25% off standard rates. The keyword with many discounts like these is the words “up to” which does not guarantee the discount will always be 25% off. Looking at a few example nights with the teacher discount code, the average you save per night ranges anywhere from $6-$15 which at most is only 5% off a stay.

Any discount helps when planning a Walt Disney World vacation but it's helpful to keep in mind that the largest discounts will always be offered for the Disney World hotels operated by Disney themselves.
