Swan & Dolphin Gallery
These images are the result of a walking tour at the Walt Disney World Swan & Dolphin resort hotel designed by Michael Graves. Construction of this massive complex was completed in 1990 and is sited between two of Walt Disney World’s parks: Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Disney’s Hollywood Studios is inspired by the heydey of Hollywood from the 1930′s-1940′s. The resorts are also adjacent to Disney’s BoardWalk Resort which is reminiscent of Coney Island circa 1890′s-1930′s. Although Disney’s Hollywood Studios opened its doors on May 1st of 1989, almost a year before the Swan & Dolphin. It was Michael Graves not Disney that set the tone for all future development in this larger than life complex which contains two mega resorts, entertainment district and theme park.
