ORLANDO, Fla. — The Walt Disney World Swan Reserve, the newest hotel planned for the Swan and Dolphin Resort complex, is scheduled to open in summer 2021, according to a recent news release offering a first look from the top floor.

The 14-story hotel is planned to have 349 guest rooms, including 149 suites and two presidential suites. The top floor will be an event space with views of the resort and Disney theme parks.

The hotel will also feature its own signature bar and restaurant as well as a health club and a pool.

The news of the Swan Reserve’s scheduled opening comes as Orlando hotels are battered by a tourism crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic and thousands of hotel employees have been laid off.

Data analysts STR put occupancy in Central Florida hotels at 31.9% for the week of Nov. 7, a drop of more than 60% from last year. STR doesn’t predict full capacity to return until 2024.

The space is already taking reservations for group events and weddings.
