    My family will be in Orlando for a week in May while my husband is at a conference. Our hotel choices are the Swan or the Dolphin. Are there significant differences between the two? Which would you recommend? Thanks!

    Hi Nichole!

    Thanks for shooting your question my way! Since I've never stayed at the Swan or The Dolphin, I enlisted my panelist friend Amy to help me with this question since she's seen both and has stayed at the Swan. Amy says that The Dolphin is the larger of the two, with more amenities geared towards families, so that would be your better choice. The Swan is also beautiful, but is a bit smaller and is geared more toward the adult crowd. Even though neither hotel is part of the official Disney Resorts, you will be able to use the Walt Disney World transportation services. 

    I hope that answered your question, Nichole. If you have any more questions before your vacation, feel free to ask me at any time.

    Have a fantastical Disney day!
