5 Reasons to Celebrate Your Special Occasion at a Local Resort

The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort can help you host the guest of honor for a memorable getaway right in your own backyard.

Orlando residents tend to shy away from tourist areas. But when you’re planning an event like a bachelor or bachelorette party or a birthday getaway, there’s no better place to celebrate the special occasion. 

The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort is no exception. We compiled a list of the top five reasons this resort is ideal for your next celebration. 

1. Make Yourself at Home

From traditional rooms to a selection of suites, a stay at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort offers a relaxing getaway right in your own backyard. There are even a variety of amenity gifts that can be arranged for the guest of honor, such as welcome champagne and turn-down sweets, to make the occasion extra special.

2. Kick Back and Relax

Treat the guest of honor like a VIP with a half day or full day poolside cabana rental at the Grotto Cabanas or the Swan Cabanas. Rentals include an HDTV, two large floats, a couch, lounge chairs, a lemon-infused water tower and a fruit bowl. Your personal pool server will ensure the mini fridge is stocked with soda and bottled water and will bring you food and beverages from the hotel restaurant at your leisure.

3. Take Advantage of the Amazing Amenities

Leave the real world behind for a little while with a visit to the Mandara Spa. From rejuvenating facials and body wraps to relaxing massages and mani/pedis, your party will feel truly pampered. While you’re there, spend time in the Meru Temple or the Tea Garden. As a guest of the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort, you will also have access to advanced tee times at three championship Walt Disney World courses: the Magnolia Golf Course, the Palm Golf Course or Lake Buena Vista Golf Course.  

4. Play at the Parks

A stay here comes with theme park perks as well. In addition to a water taxi to nearby Epcot and Hollywood Studios, the resort offers complimentary transportation to all Disney parks as well as advance 60-day fast pass reservations. Your proximity to the parks also means that you can do one of the famous monorail crawls (or the brand-new Skyliner crawl) during your celebration weekend. 

5. Indulge in a Decadent Dinner 

The resort is known for its many splurge-worthy restaurants, including Todd English’s bluezoo, a coastal cuisine concept; Kimonos sushi bar; Trattoria Il Mulino, a contemporary Italian restaurant; and the newly rebranded Shula’s Steak House. With these four signature restaurants, there’s no shortage of fine wine, succulent steaks, fresh seafood and everything in between. 

As you plan for celebrations throughout the year, keep the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort top of mind for a getaway that’s not too far from home.
