A few weeks ago, my family had a wonderful vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. We stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel. If you are not familiar with this hotel, this is a hotel that is part of the Walt Disney World Resort but it is not owned by Disney. It is a beautiful hotel with comfortable beds, lots of pools, and other amenities.
But the main selling point of the hotel is its location. It is within walking distance of both Epcot and Hollywood Studios (and my family took advantage of this!). It is also a short walk from Disney’s Boardwalk, which has great shops and restaurants like Boardwalk Ice Cream.
The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is directly across from its sister hotel, the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. It is connected by a covered walkway. This is great because it opens up more options for dining. This is especially great when it is raining. And it rained for a lot of our vacation. It was really nice to be able to walk under the covered walkway to go to a restaurant at the Dolphin Hotel for dinner. And that restaurant is the Fountain.
The Fountain is a casual, sit-down restaurant with an American diner theme. It’s a really fun, happy theme. I think that fits in really well with the Walt Disney World Resort. It’s just a nice place to go to at the end of the day and relax, have fun, and enjoy time with your family.
They serve a lot of typical American fare like burgers, salads, and sandwiches. And they have a dessert counter serving homemade or soft-serve ice cream!
The Fountain Review
Now, when we went they were very busy. We had a forty-five minute wait. But that was fine because we were staying at the Swan! We gave them a phone number so we could be called when our table was ready. We were able to back to our room and relax for awhile. Then we went back to the Dolphin hotel and waited while sitting on one of their comfortable sofas in the lobby. When our table was ready, we just headed over to the table and got our table!
Most of my family got the Fountain Signature Burger.
The burger is quite the mouthful. It has two 4 oz. Angus Burgers in it. It also comes with and Avocado-Bacon Spread, Smoked Bacon, Caramelized Onion, Roma Tomato, and American Cheese. I have a small mouth so I found it a bit hard to eat but it was really good. So good my mom commented it was one of the best burgers she ever had! My sister though did say she did not like avocado-bacon spread. But mostly positive reviews all around for the burgers.
I got the Sweet Potato Fries as my side and I thought they were delicious. My mom got the onion rings, and she loved those, too!
My dad went against the group and had the classic hot dog.
He also really liked his meal.
