The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort has announced special savings for guests who book rooms from August 22 to September 30. That’s perfect timing for a Labor Day Weekend getaway, or to kick off the Food and Wine Festival, which begins September 14!

Enjoy the Epcot Food and Wine Festival!

Rates start at $159 per night for the Walt Disney World Swan, and $149 per night for the Walt Disney World Dolphin. That’s crazy talk when you consider that these resorts are Deluxe-level quality and within easy WALKING distance to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Even with an extra resort fee, you’re likely going to spend MUCH less at these resorts than you will at an Epcot deluxe resort.

The resort even offers Disney resort hotel-only perks, like Extra Magic Hours and official Disney resort transportation.

There’s also some great food to enjoy here. I love to stop by The Fountain for comfort food and fabulous ice cream treats.

You won’t go wrong with craft cocktails and seafood specialties at Todd English’s bluezoo, and Shula’s is one of my favorite spots in Disney for fantastic steaks! And since Orlando’s Magical Dining Month normally takes place in September each year, you may be able to take advantage of savings that way as well!

To book this special deal, call 1-888-828-8850, and ask for promo code VALUE.

    Swan and Dolphin are two of my favorites.
    Love the restaurants.
    Dolphin Lobby bar is always hopping. Great people work there.
    Just saw last visit they renamed the “causeway.” It’s now The Michael Graves Causeway, in honor of the architect that designed the resorts. Plaques are on the middle walls on each side facing the Causeway. Nice honor for him. He did a great job.
    Just wish they’d hurry and finish the rehab to the Dolphin.
    They could rehab the jets in the jacuzzi’s too.
    Don’t forget, THEIR Food and Wine Classic Friday and Saturday evening around Halloween. We have our tickets and room resies!!! Been to all of them. It’s a great event!!!
    Wish they’d get the Jersey Boys back to perform… they were soooo good!!

    Keep in mind the following:

    Resort Fee: $25.00 per day.
    Self-Parking $18.00 per day.

    Given these are things you avoid at Disney’s hotels, you really need to make your comparison using a rate of $192/night. Still noticeably less than any of the Disney deluxe properties, although for off-peak September, AKL and WL are likely to be around $240 for FL residents.

    I know too, that the Resort Fee is taxable. Add another $ 3.13/day. Not sure about the Self-parking.
    We stayed at the Dolphin recently and I just checked my folio.
    We didn’t have a vehicle, so I can’t speak for that aspect.
    I’ve heard… totally unofficially… that Disney is contemplating adding a Resort Fee too!!!!
    Just sayin’ as they say. Don’t know if that is speculation or fact. Nothing said whether room rates would be lowered to compensate (ROFL)… I know, I can’t say that with a straight face!!!
    Anyway, your point is very well taken.
    Dolphin needs to step up their room refurb. We had an “old” room, and it was in need of work.
    Had issue with toilet that took 3 trips and 2 CM’s to fix.
    Jacuzzi’s too.
    Guess they were working on something at the Dolphin last year… not exactly sure when.. late summer, early fall??? Anyway, we were at Shula’s and it was like eating at the Disco. Lights flickered the entire meal, while staff kept saying it will stop “momentarily.” No compensation was offered either. Surprised we didn’t get charged for a “hard ticket light show” Food was terrific though!!!
