Taking my family to Disneyworld next year. Staying at Swan and Dolphin to use points. What hotel is best? Have three young children, 6,4,2 and a spouse. Best rooms, chance of upgrade (or do I get two adjoining rooms), and does either have a concierge lounge with breakfast??? Any advise is welcomed and thank you in advance!!!

Likely a pretty crappy use of points after several category increases and given covid. One is technically a Sheraton (the Dolphin) and one is a Westin (the Swan). Rooms at the Swan with two beds have queens vs doubles at the Dolphin. A new adjacent Marriott property, The Swan Reserve, is scheduled to open in summer 2021. https://insidethemagic.net/2020/09/new-swan-and-dolphin-tower-name-tm1/

Swan is better because it's smaller but both are great. You get to walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The boardwalk is there too with good restaurants and places to see. You can also walk to the Yacht and Beach club which have a great ice cream place and a breakfast place called Ale and Compass. Swan and Dolphin don't have concierge lounges, but they have a cafe with coffee and breakfast/lunch options. They also take the Deloitte rate

Just want to make sure people know this and don’t apply jobs in this shady company- it is called UniQ Biotech, in Delta, BC, Canada
