The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort has today confirmed plans to build a new tower.

More details will be released on Friday according to media representatives at the resort, but today's information confirms that the 14 story tower will add 349 guest rooms, meeting space, a swimming pool and a restaurant with bar and lounge.

Set to open in 2020, the third tower at the Swan and Dolphin Resort will be built on space currently occupied the resorts tennis courts.

The complex is currently undergoing renovations bringing updates to all areas of the resorts, with the latest being new plans to rework the Swan resort's lobby area.

The first hints of something new coming to the Swan and Dolphin Resort was back in January 2016 where a number of height test balloons were spotted in the area of the tennis courts.

It's such a relief to know where the resort's chiller is. Also, for reference, full screen map: https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/maps/overview-details/

So the Swan and Dolphin are excluded, huh. That boggles my mind if true, being on property vs. the Hilton properties being on the outskirts of the parks.

That was the previous version... "Please note: The Extra Magic Hours benefit was suspended when Walt Disney World Resort reopened last summer, and as we continue to manage attendance with health and safety top of mind, Extra Magic Hours will not return." Here is a link to the new one - https://disneyworld.disney.go.com/en_CA/guest-services/early-entry/

It's fine. It's better than I expected. I actually would rather look at this than the Swan or Dolphin, but they don't go together at all. If that matters. Which I guess it doesn't. I'm sure the inside will be nice; it looks nice. The pool looks boring and small though.

Why isn't Edna Mode an integral part of the decor? HOW IS THIS DISNEY?
