In 13 days I should be at getting off work and driving down to the beautiful Disney Swan Resort. I am getting so excited, and I feel very fortunate and grateful to be able to go this year. In 14 days from right now, I should be having a wonderfully long sleep in one of the Disney Swan's Heavenly Beds, too.

Thank you. My annual vacation every year to Walt Disney World with all the Christmas decorations and music and events is always the highlight of my year. So many things to see and to do even with plans made. I don't ride many rides, but I do love the atmosphere and this year it will be all new to me at the Disney Swan Resort. I can't wait. Thank you again. You brought a big smile to my face.

I don't know the answer to your question. I am assuming that you are talking about Interval International? I have never seen the Swan or Dolphin on the II website. Have you seen it listed on II before?

Yes I'm talking about Interval International. I thought they offered it since they have starwood resorts. I called yesterday and they do not. Since RCI now had Disney I thought maybe they would have it. But, I dont see them on RCI either?!

To the best of my knowledge, since neither the Swan nor Dolphin are timeshare resorts, they would not be offered on RCI or II.

Question! Is the Dolphin decorated for the holidays now like the WDW resorts? I ask because Ray posted the 2012 holiday calendar and I notice that the "events" don't really begin until Dec 1 and I'm thinking about my trip NEXT year when we arrive on Thanksgiving Day and leave Dec 4. Hoping to catch some decorations and an event or two.

The Dolphin has been decorated by Thanksgiving weekend, but not necessarily by Thanksgiving day. However, next year Thanksgiving is late (Nov. 28) so your chances are better.

I just left yesterday and the hotel was not decorated. The only other resort I visited was the BWI and it was not decorated either.
