WDW Swan or Dolphin. What is your preference?

This coming May we are going to Walt Disney World for babysitting detail and give my son and his wife a night or two out for adult fun. We’ve been a Disney family since there was a family but mostly have roomed  at the resorts with monorail service. I’ve stayed at the Dolphin though not sure if I’ve visited the Swan. Maybe.... Maybe not...

I booked a standard king (standard is  only type room available using points) with points for  3 nights at the Swan.

...And because this is a resort during the busy season I requested “Suite Nights” certificate upgrades even though I am Lifetime Platinum Premier Elite. (Won’t know about the upgrades until 5 days before arrival. What a pain)

I understand both hotels just went through a very expensive renovation. 

  • So what are your overall opinions of the Swan? 
  • Which one is preferred?
  • Is one hotel better than the other and why?
  • What about LTPPE perks? Should I expect any? 

Thanks in advance. BD
