New Details Released for Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin’s Third Hotel Tower

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

A recent article from GrowthSpotter has revealed details about a third tower coming to Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin Resort, scheduled to be completed by 2020.

From GrowthSpotter

The fourteen-story tower, set to be built on the current site of the Swan’s tennis courts, will be home to 349 guest rooms and 21,000 square feet of meeting space. 151 of the guest rooms will include private executive meeting spaces. The tower will also have a covered rooftop terrace, meeting space on the top floor, a 90-foot long pool and fitness center, as well as a 75-seat restaurant and a 50-seat bar and lounge. The building’s façade will mostly be glass with an angular design, giving it a unique appearance from the Swan & Dolphin.

The news comes as part of the transformation of the Swan & Dolphin Resorts, including a multi-million dollar renovation of both resorts’ lobbies. Tishman Principal and Vice Chairman Daniel R. Tishman said that the new tower is designed to provide the same “best-in-class experience” that the renovated resorts currently provide.

Like both the Swan and Dolphin, the tower will be owned by Tishman and MetLife Investment Management. There’s no word yet on whether the new tower will be part of the Swan or Dolphin, or will be given a new identity altogether.

We will provide more information as it becomes available.

  • I’ve always thought the swan & dolphin looked out of place, but this seems to double down on that…looking out of place even among the swan & dolphin.

  • Yay. More hotels. And it’s just as boring looking as all the rest of the others popping up. *yawn* Can we get a 5th park now? Or better yet, pump some money into the other 4, which are falling apart in a lot of places.

  • I don’t mind it so much. Yes, it lacks that Disney flair and charm, but it still looks beautiful to me. Shouldn’t have a problem booking rooms either as it’s in prime real estate inside the 4 park bubble and right down the street from Epcot and HS. Overall, I agree with the general opinion that it lacks “Disney”, but if you can stand on the top floor and look out that huge window I’ll probably be very willing to give it a pass.

  • Walt Disney World used to be such an immersive place. Wherever you looked everything you could see was magical and larger than life.

    This generic building looks like a tenement project from an inner city. It does not belong on WDW property.
