The #Walt Disney World #Swan and Dolphin Resort is home to the popular Food and Wine Classic every fall, but it's a popular place to stay for visitors to Orlando year 'round. It's the most convenient place to enjoy as much food and drink as you like because you can simply head up to your room once you've hit all of the kiosks that line the waterfront, including a variety of adult beverages. Even if you overindulged, your accommodations are mere steps away. This year, the festival takes place on October 28 and 29, so expect to see plenty of guests who've come specifically to enjoy it.

Convenient location on Disney property

If you're coming to Walt #Disney World for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival or to see the new Star Wars fireworks show and other attractions at Disney's Hollywood Studios, the Swan and Dolphin Resort is a great choice even when it's not holding a special event.

It's right on Disney property and centrally located between those two theme parks. That means you can walk to either one or take convenient boat transportation. The resort also offers bus service to the other two parks.

The Swan and Dolphin Resort is also within walking distance of the Walt Disney World Boardwalk, Yacht, and Beach Club resorts and the Atlantic Dance Hall. That gives you more dining and entertainment options without having to worry about transportation. Boat service is also available to those destinations, but the walk is so short and convenient that you probably won't want to bother waiting.
