The newest hotel to open at Walt Disney World Resort — the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve — has had to push back its opening date. Here’s what we know so far.
The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is set to be the newest hotel at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Although it is not owned or operated by Disney, the Swan Reserve (much like its sister Resorts, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin) is still going to be considered an official Disney hotel, offering similar amenities to the Disney Resort hotels that are owned by Disney on Disney World property. It is also very close to two major Disney World theme parks, EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well as other fun areas of Disney property, like the BoardWalk.
The Swan Reserve was previously accepting reservations for stays beginning September 1, 2021. However, now it looks like the hotel’s opening has been delayed until September 30, 2021.
The new opening date for the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is displayed on Google:
The official Marriott website (Marriott Bonvoy owns the Swan Reserve) also does not allow bookings for the hotel until September 30 or later. The website also now says that the hotel opens in fall 2021:
At this time, bookings are not currently available for stays beginning September 30 — or even stays beginning October 1, the official start date of the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration — through the official Walt Disney World Resort website, as you can see in the screenshot below, but we will update you when more information becomes available.
If you want to book the Swan Reserve for your upcoming Disney World trip, we highly recommend reaching out to the Authorized Disney Vacation Planners at Academy Travel, who can get you the best deal on your vacation. If you have an upcoming trip, rest assured that the Swan Reserve will contact you directly if the delayed opening of the hotel will affect your reservation or vacation as a whole.
