You’ve planned, budgeted, and packed for the most amazing Walt Disney World Resort vacation! While most Guests rush off to Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom… most miss a fun ride in plain sight.
We call ourselves Disney pros, but even we never knew a unique experience awaits Disney fans at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort Hotel.
During a recent stay at the Swan Resort Hotel, we were surprised to notice something large moving around Crescent Lake between the Swan and Dolphin Hotels. As we approached, we noticed a large… white… swan boat?!
That’s right! Did you know the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort offers a leisurely ride around Crescent Lake on a swan paddle boat? Check out our video below:
We had a blast riding around Crescent Lake on a beautiful swan paddle boat!
If staying at the Dolphin Hotel, Swan Hotel, or the Swan Reserve, Guests are welcome to board a swan paddle boat FREE of charge to take a memorable ride.
Simply visit the Cabana Beach Hut on the Resort’s beachside for the free watercraft rental with operating hours between 11:00 a.m and 6:00 p.m. daily.
Once you sign your name and room number, the Cabana Beach Hut Cast Members will provide you with a Swan Paddleboat Pass, which the Guests will take down to the boat dock attendant.
From there, you’ll be provided a lifevest for each Guest. The boat can easily seat four adults, with two paddling and two relaxing in the back seat. It would also be a perfect size for a family of five with two adults and three children.
Check out this free and memorable Disney ride the next time you stay at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin, as well as the Swan Reserve Resort Hotels.
Extra tip! Done with paddling? Once the sun sets at Swan and Dolphin, that pathway between Swan and Dolphin hotels is the place to be! The pathway is lined with multiple palm trees that have special lighting. Disney music is played while a light show displays on the trees for a unique experience most Disney fans miss.
