Marriott operates 2 resorts on the Walt Disney World property, the Walt Disney World Swan and the Walt Disney World Dolphin.  These are popular hotels for folks in the miles & points hobby because it’s easy to earn and redeem Marriott points for stays!

The good news is, Marriott has come to an agreement with Disney to build a new hotel tower where the Swan Resort’s tennis courts currently sit.  This means there will be more rooms to book with Marriott points, which is just one of many ways to save on your trip to Disney World.

Marriott Is Expanding Their Hotel at Walt Disney World, so You’ll Have More Options for Using Your Points for a Free Stay!

According to the Orlando Business Journal, the project is expected to break ground this fall, and the new 14-story, 349-room hotel tower will open in 2020.

The tower will feature:

  • Guest rooms
  • Meeting Rooms
  • Rooftop terrace
  • Restaurant & bar
  • Fitness center
  • Outdoor space including a fire pit and 90-foot long pool

The Walt Disney World Swan and the Walt Disney World Dolphin are both Category 6 Marriott hotels.  So under the new award chart they can be booked for 50,000 Marriott points per night.

Starting in 2019, Marriott will be introducing peak and off-peak award prices.  So the award price at these hotels will vary between 40,000 and 60,000 Marriott points per night depending on when you plan on visiting.
