    Is there a resort fee for staying at the Walt Disney World Swan and also the Animal Lodge Kidani Village?

    Hello, Liza and welcome to planDisney! 

    Liza, I love planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation almost as much as I love being there (remember, I did say "almost"!) and my favorite part of the planning process is selecting a resort, so I'm happy to assist you. 

    As the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is a Marriott property, a $35 (plus tax) daily resort fee will be charged. Liza, please note that prices (including resort fees) are subject to change, so if you're planning a stay for 2022 or beyond, I would recommend visiting www.swandolphin.com to confirm the daily resort fee rate prior to booking. 

    Now, Liza, if you're booking directly through Disney for a stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Villas- Kidani Village, there is not a separate resort fee. All amenities, like complimentary theme park transportation, pool access and wifi are included in the price. 

    Liza, I hope this helps as you're deciding which resort best fits your travel interests and needs.  Please note that both properties do have a daily parking fee if you'll be renting a car or traveling with your own vehicle. The base rate posted often doesn't include tax, so please don't forget to factor that in as you're budgeting.

    If you have any additional questions, please come on back to planDisney. We are all EARS!
