Great property but please bring back Disney buses

L8657WBbillyg (Portsmouth, New Hampshire) on Aug 06, 2022

I’ve stayed at the Swan and Dolphin properties annually for over nearly 15 years and have always had a great trip. The property is beautiful, rooms are modern with wonderful Heavenly beds, lots of excellent dining options, access to extra magic hours (now renamed), Disney guest services and gift shops onsite, great location right by the Boardwalk and with Disney boats (or walking paths) to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. All of that remains true. However, post-Covid they have made a very unfortunate choice to switch from Disney Transport buses to private buses operated by Mears. This had a major negative impact on our stay. The times were unpredictable and less frequent and the service from drivers is not what is typical of Disney cast members. The worst part about this change is that these buses also don’t drop you off at the Disney shuttle areas, and in some cases (Magic Kingdom) not even at the park your going to. This means an additional 30-45 minutes of travel time to Magic Kingdom (Swan buses currently take you to Transportation center where you transfer to a monorail or boat like offsite resorts vs the Swan’s former Disney operated buses which were directly to the park). It also means an additional 20+ minute walk to Disney Springs due to dropping off at inconvenient location with offsite guests vs Disney guests. At Animal Kingdom, you’re dropped off in a parking lot area for offsite guests vs the more convenient Disney bus area. Disney operated Transportation was always one of the best benefits of the Swan/ Dolphin, truly providing that blend between Disney perks and Marriott (formerly Starwood) rewards. This change in transportation has me reconsidering whether or not to continue staying at this property for future visits to Disney. I hope the property reconsiders this transportation change and will return to Disney buses, your guests would very much value this benefit returning.

Disappointing shuttle service

hannahbA9977PD on Aug 03, 2022

Pros: We recently stayed at this hotel for our family Disney trip. The location is convenient, close to boardwalk, ferry service to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Overall our room was clean and there was a daily cleaning service ( new towels, toiletries, restocked bottles of water, etc.). There’s a decent quick food shop downstairs to grab snack (fruit cups, yogurts, sandwiches…). Cons: Disappointing shuttle service. One of the main reasons we selected the hotel is the availability of shuttle service to and from Disney parks and Disney Springs. However, the shuttle drops you off at location s different than buses for real Disney resorts. Specifically: Shuttle to Disney Springs brings you to a remote parking lot behind a parking garage instead of Disney bus shuttle bus area. You will be dropped off at a remote lot for non-Disney guests. We had to walk 20+ min in a 98 degree heat from that lot, thru garage, thru security check just to hop on a shuttle to bring us to Typhoon Lagoon. Extremely inconvenient. On the way back we chose to use a Yacht Club resort shuttle instead and walk back to Swan. Beware that shuttle to Magic Kingdom drops you off at ticket center (not in front of the park entrance as Disney buses do). We then had to take monorail to get to the MK entrance. This added travel was about 30 extra min. I’m not even sure if there’s a shuttle back from Animal Kingdom as there’s no marked location for Swan/Disney hotels. We ended up just taking Disney shuttles to nearby Boardwalk Inn or Yacht Club resort and walk back to Swan (so did many other Swan hotel guests that we saw were walking back from other hotels). Also ferry service does not work during rain, be prepared to walk back from Epcot or HS parks (since shuttles to Swan are nowhere to be found). Lastly, the timing of the shuttle from the hotel are inconsistent. Instead of promised shuttle every 15-20 min, be prepared to wait at least 30 -40 min. Overall, will not chose this hotel again. Many other options, including Disney resorts to choose from.
