Photo Tour of a Standard Room at the Disney World Swan



By Dave Shute

For the first page of this review of the Disney World Swan and Dolphin, see this.

STANDARD ROOMS AT THE SWAN

The Disney World Swan completed a room refurbishment in 2016. This photo tour is of one of these refurbed rooms.

Some Swan rooms have balconies, but most don’t.  The floor plan and tour is of a room without balconies. It happens to be of a corner room, so has two windows. Most have just one window, at the end.

Entry Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

Most hotel rooms have at the entry a closet on one side and the bath on the other.  Swan rooms have everything on one side of the entry.

Hall Sink Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

Thus, outside of the full bath there’s a sink on one side…

…and a closet on the other. Although there’s not a lot of width to this closet, the extra hanging rods on the right make great use of the available space.

Bath Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

Beyond these is a full bath, with another sink on one side…

Tub Shower Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

…and the tub/shower combo on the other.

Bed Side Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

Deeper in the room on one side you’ll find two queen beds.

Between them is a bedside table with some storage shelves…

Chair Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

…and next to them, a little cramped, is an easy chair.

TV Side Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

The TV side of the room has a dresser/mini-fridge thingy, and a table that can serve as a desk and chair towards the back..

Mini-Fridge Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

Part of the dresser thingy holds the mini-fridge…

Dresser Drawers Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

…the rest is four large drawers.

With the four good-sized drawers and the well-structured closet, there’s plenty of storage here for the four people these rooms will hold.

Desk Table Refurbed Room Disney World Swan from yourfirstvisit.net

Here’s a closer view of the desk/table and its chair.  Note that the table is on wheels.

As noted earlier in this review, most Swan rooms do not have have balconies, and very few have the two windows my room had.  Most rather have just large one large window and no balcony.

As we’ll see in a minute, the core differences between Swan and Dolphin standard rooms are:

  • Swan: queen beds. Dolphin: full beds
  • Swan: two sinks. Dolphin: one sink

The two sinks and queen beds make the Swan rooms a better choice for almost all.
