PHOTOS - A look at The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve construction

The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve construction - October 13 2020

Here is a quick look at the latest construction progress at The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve.

Work continued during the majority of the COVID-19 shutdown that impacted most construction projects at Walt Disney World, so this project appears to be remaining largely on track.

Click the gallery for more pictures.

When complete, the expansion will add a 14 story tower with 349 guest rooms including 151 suites, 22000 square feet of meeting space and a 90 seat restaurant. 

The new location will be open for group bookings beginning March 1, 2021.

Following the success of Star Wars: Box Hotel with LARPers Inside comes Marriott's bold new partnership with EA, a live action, interactive hotel experience like no other, SimHotel: The Gamecation.

This! And I bet it will command high convention rental prices for receptions, happy hours, etc.

Or a generic video game city.

I’ve played tennis at the resorts during longer vacations. (I’ve also used DVC rooms as a base for a larger Orlando trip that included Uni. Shhhhhh!) ;)

Or who travel down in the winter from a chilly northern state. I know I've used the prospect of tennis to try to talk my boyfriend into going to WDW with me.

It just looks off. The colors mainly I suppose, but scale, the juxtaposition Oh well.

No, but people are often so busy in their regular lives that they don't take the time to do things like this, do going to Disney gives them the opportunity.

I think I mentioned it before - having just stayed in a Dolphin room facing the new tower - my hope is this is phase 1 of a larger change. I think they could pull some of the blues, tans, etc. into the color scheme of the existing buildings (without replacing it entirely), and it would actually look quite nice. The interiors of both Swan and Dolphin match the exterior coloring on the wave tiles of the Stupidly Named Hotel. So, I wonder if we'll see a color swap when the exterior of Swan and Dolphin need an update. If that's not the plan, the design is just an epic fail.

I kinda wish that they used the same colors as the Swalphin and then I wouldn’t dislike it so much...even with the same shape.
