PHOTOS: Wave Paneling Covers One Side of The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve

Construction on The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve is moving along steadily, with paneling already covering one part of the resort hotel building.


With the blue wave pattern installed on the right side, construction cranes are focused on the left side of the building.


All that seems missing on paneled side is a row of windows on the highest uncovered floor.


The blue-to-white panels add to the nautical theme of the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin, situated near Disney’s BoardWalk.


The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve will feature a rooftop restaurant and lounge, which will have a dedicated ground floor entrance and elevator for those not staying at the resort. It will be a 375 seat upscale restaurant with a partial expo kitchen. The bar will have about 40 seats. The windows will be floor to ceiling to provide a great view of Walt Disney World, including a rooftop trellis area for unobstructed views.

Upon completion, Swan Reserve will join the Swan and Dolphin Resort complex near EPCOT with 349 rooms, taking the total rooms available at the complex to 2,600. Like the Swan and Dolphin hotels, Swan Reserve will have walking access to EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s BoardWalk, Yacht Club, and Beach Club resorts.

Looks like hell

What a horrific looking piece of excrement with zero contextualism. A disgrace to the architects, Tishman and Disney leadership. This pos will permanently wreck vistas from the EPCOT resorts. A sad but expected development from the Philiistines who run these two companies.
