News! Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Asking July Guests to Confirm Reservations!

Over the weekend, there was STILL a way to book a non-DVC room on Disney property for the reopening of Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom on July 11th and the reopening of Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios on July 15th. Guests could go through Mariott’s website and book a room at The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts.

THEN, the Swan and Dolphin’s website was updated to state that both resorts will remain closed through July 29th.

That left guests with rooms at the Swan and Dolphin with one MAJOR question: What would happen to their reservations?! Now we know it seems as though the Swan and Dolphin WILL be open to guests with previously booked stays.

Swan and Dolphin Resort

The Swan and Dolphin resorts are asking guests to confirm their reservations by 5PM on Monday, June 15th, otherwise the reservation will be canceled and refunded. If you have a reservation at the Swan and Dolphin for July, confirm by calling 800-227-1500 or by emailing [email protected].

Email From Swan and Dolphin

According to the email, the Swan and Dolphin resorts will be operating with “limited services initially, which will impact amenities and restaurants typically available to guests.” Though these are third-party hotels, this is in line with what Walt Disney World resort hotels will look like after reopening on June 22.

Note that the Swan and Dolphin did NOT confirm when they will be reopening to new guests, nor when the hotels will open to new reservations before July 30th. We’ll monitor this story and keep you updated as we learn more.
