Not really

We booked the Swan because it was cheaper than the Dolphin, but they are literally 100 metres apart so itís very easy to go from one to the other. I prefer the restaurants at the Dolphin but I wasnít paying extra to stay there.

Do you recommend any websites that include it or is it worth booking it cheaper and paying the resort fee at the hotel?

Kat
Travel republic includes the resort fee (but not parking)

Resort charge is $35, then I think there is a parking charge!. I usually book direct so pay full amount when I stay ( and currently have good cancellation policy).

I have in the past booked as a package, so nothing to pay when I am there, but, if course the agent will have factored the charge into their costings!

I'd forgotten that the parking charge was on top of the Resort Fee, it's so long since we stayed there last.
Even with that issue, The Swan & Dolphin are great alternatives to the official Disney resorts & in some ways are actually superior in my opinion.
Everyone has their own view & preference on the resorts, we loved the old Yacht Club room decor but actually prefer the new decor, although some people don't like it because it's not "themed enough", each to their own I guess.

Swan is technically a higher class of hotel.

Dolphin is technically Sheraton and Swan technically Westin although in reality little difference.
