The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort complex will have a total of 22 dining venues when the Swan Reserve hotel opens later this year.
The 349-room tower will offer four new restaurants, headlined by the Mediterranean-inspired cuisine of Amare. A hotel press release said the menu will range from a buffet and breakfast bowls in the morning to flatbreads and grilled mahi-mahi for lunch to sea bass al cartoccio for dinner. Desserts will include Pistachio caragli,, Greek yogurt cheesecake and Meyer lemon panna cotta.
“At Amare, our guests experience a journey to the Mediterranean region through their palates,” Luciano Sperduto, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin’s director of food & beverage, said in a press release. “It’s a region with such a rich history of food, with so many great flavors to feature. The concept gave our culinary team an opportunity to really flex their creative muscles. There are great options for everyone to love.”
Guests can find a taste of the Amare menu at the resort’s Food and Wine Classic taking place on Oct. 29 and 30.
The other new dining venues will be:
- Tangerine, a poolside bar and restaurant with signature drinks along with burgers, sandwiches and salads
- Grounds, a grab-and-go location with coffee
- Stir, the lobby bar that will feature daily food and drink pairings exclusively for Swan Reserve guests
Initially scheduled to open Sept. 1, the Swan Reserve opening has been delayed twice, first to late September and now to some point this month.
The new hotel is not owned or operated by Disney, despite being located on Disney World property. Just like the Swan and Dolphin, the Swan Reserve will be owned by New York-based real estate firm Tishman and MetLife Investment Management and operated by Marriott International.
