Have you been to the Swan & Dolphin Hotel at the Walt Disney World Resort? If so, you know how beautiful this resort is.  Add in holiday decorations, a huge tree, & a vacationing Santa Claus & this resort becomes as festive as the North Pole!  Here’s what you can expect if you are lucky enough to be spending some time at this resort during the holidays:

Santa & Mrs. Claus Meet ‘n Greets – Santa has traded that warm, red suit for shorts & flip-flops!  Santa, Mrs. Claus & Kandy Kane greet guests in a custom Tiki Hut which is decked out with reindeer, palm trees and, of course, flamingos.  Select nights only.

Life-Size Chocolate Holiday Santa Scene – What’s that wonderful smell in the lobby of the Swan? It’s over 2,000 pounds of chocolate!!  Laurent Branlard, executive chef & 2-time world pastry champion, has created a beautiful scene which will be displayed throughout December.  With Santa, a Christmas tree, toy train, fireplace, & even a 7-foot tall nutcracker, guests will be amazed at the creation.

A Florida Snow Fall & Tree Lighting Ceremony – The Dolphin lobby has magic of its own with a train set, 45-foot tall Christmas tree, & even snow falling!   Join Mrs. Claus for the tree lighting followed by hot beverages.  Select nights only.

Bedtime Elf Tuck-Ins – On December 24th, an elf will deliver milk & cookies along with a plush toy & storybook to your room.  The elf will read a bedtime story then tuck the kids into bed before Santa arrives!  $55 for 1 child, $15 each additional + 20% service charge.  Space is limited & reservations are required so make your reservations now!

Holiday Entertainment – Be on the lookout because you never know when you’ll hear your favorite holiday tunes!  Carolers, choirs, or musicians can be found all over the resort providing entertainment on select nights.

Dancing Lights Show – Disney’s Hollywood Studios can’t have all the fun!  Every evening the causeway between the Swan & Dolphin buildings is filled with holiday music & a perfectly choreographed light show.

Magic Keys for Santa – Have the kids asked how Santa will find them on vacation?  Or enter the room without a chimney?  The concierge desk has your magic key to hang on your door to help Santa.  Be sure to pick yours up!

Dessert Decorating & Holiday Movies – The children will have fun decorating delicious holiday sweets in the lobby!  Don’t miss your favorite holiday movie because you’re on vacation!  Free holiday-themed movies can be found on the guest room tvs.  For a special treat, gather the family to catch a movie on the large screen on the hotel’s beach (select nights only).
