Hot on the heels of the completion of a major multi-million dollar makeover for the huge Swan Dolphin Resort at WDW, the owners have announced another $3million refurbishment, this time of the Swan's lobby area (they previously did the Dolphin lobby area, and all the guest rooms to a very high degree).

Here's what the finished article will look like, when complete:



LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Ė Aug. 20, 2018 Ė Following the completion of the largest renovation in its history last fall, the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort is undergoing its next redesign project, a $3 million transformation of the Swan Resortís lobby, public spaces and coffee bar. Upon completion, the resortís two main lobbies, all guest rooms and meeting spaces will all have completely updated appearances.



The new Swan spaces will incorporate the water theme of the redesigned guest rooms and Dolphin lobby, providing an elegant, classic look to the resortís lobby, rotunda, front desk, lounging areas and corridors. Features like lantern lights and sconces, Bahama shutters and palm leaf designs will transport visitors to a serene tropical oasis. The Swanís coffee bar, Java Bar, will also receive a refreshed look as part of the redesign.



The project follows the $150 million, three-year renovation which included a redesign of all guest rooms, complete transformation of the Dolphin Resort lobby and renovation of all meeting space, which finished its final phase in fall 2017.

The Swan Resort project will take place in phases, in order to remain open to guests throughout the renovation, and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.
