Yes, there is the Cabana Bar at the Dolphin and Splash Terrace at the Swan. You can find menus for both on the S/D website.

As Dan said, it is the Cabana Bar. I must add it is a favorite of ours. We like to spend at least one day at the pool and eat at the Cabana Bar each trip!

Oh, Singing Mom, I forgot to add....we will be doing the limo thing this time. I always rent a car for all my other trips but no need for getting around WDW this time. The guy will be there with our name sign.

Cab from Orlando

Does anyone know the price of a cab ride from Orlando Airport to the Swan/Dolphin?

Using taxi fare calculator I found online, it says about $55 plus tip one way.

Many guests hire town cars to transport from the airport to the Swan/Dolphin ... comparable rate but nice ride and most include a stop at a grocery if there are items you'd like to pick up for your stay (snacks, water, etc.).

Planning way ahead for our 2014 trip. Due to school, we are stuck with having to do WDW on a holiday, either President's Day week or the week after Easter. Not only are crowd levels high, but likelihood of discounts extremely low. Thinking of trying out the Swan/Dolphin using the teacher rate. Does anyone know when 2014 rates and teacher discount availability will be out for Feb and April 2014?

If I remember correctly Mears shuttle service runs around $22 one way and $34 roundtrip. If your party is 3 or more I would look into a Towncar service. Most of them offer a complementary grocery stop which can come in very handy.

I am sure this has been asked befor but I could not find it. After you have paid for parking is it good for parking at the parks?
