As you know, in December – it was last month, but with so many trips, looks like it was years ago! – I had the pleasure to visit one of my favorite places in the world: Walt Disney World, in Orlando, United States!
My first visit to the parks was in 1994, when I was 12 years-old. Time has passed and, asince then, I have been there other 9 times at least. However, this last visit was one of the most special.
All because I stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan e Dolphin Resort, the same place I stayed when I went there for the first time. And this is really cool, because several stories, moments and emotions came to the surface when I walked into the resort. The mess, ice wars, the confusions, the tours and the feeling I had when I went to the first park, Epcot Center. It was an unforgettable moment!
For those who don’t know about it, the Swan & Dolphin is part of the most extraordinary complex at Disney, with all benefits and facilities to make the experience even more magical:
1 – Under 17 years-old children, sharing their parent’s room, don’t pay any additional;
2 – Starbucks Teas and Coffees in your room – This is AMAZING!
3 – Free transport to the Walt Disney World’s theme parks;
4 – Benefit of extra magic hours in the parks;
5 – Shopping delivery (I LOVE this!) – The guests have the benefits of a delivery service in the hotel shop in all the stores of Disney Complex.
6 – Breakfast with Disney characters! My childish side – which is not small, loves this!
And those are just a few benefits…
But the icing on the cake comes now!
All the rooms at the Swan & Dolphin Resort are going through a process of modernization. The renovations started by Swan, that already has a good part of its rooms totally refurbished, offering more comfort and convenience to the guests. I stayed at one of those rooms and I can say they are really fantastic. One of the highlights is the heavenly bed, with layers and layers of feathers on Egyptian cotton sheets. You don’t even want to wake up … Another highlight is the high speed internet, which is really very good!
The bathrooms don’t have those old bathtubs anymore. But anyway, who needs a bathtub to relax, when you have the Mandara Spa at the hotel?!
On your next trip to Disney, don’t forget to get in contact with the resort and book it! I’m sure you will be surprised!
