Quick question related to the location of the playground to the pool. Can you watch little ones on the playground and also keep an eye on older kids in the pool. Wondering the proximity?

Also - does the S/D have any night time activities on the beach? Any movie nights at the pool? I thought I read somewhere about smores and movies on the beach but I am not sure if it's at the Dolphin or another resort.

Thanks!!!

Not sure about your playground question, but I don't think you can really see both spots from the pool...

There are movie nights, depending on the season. Ask for a resort activities list at the front desk or concierge. I think sMores on the beach are at the Beach Club.

Thanks for the response! How far away is the Beach Club? Can anyone go over for the smores on the beach or do you have to be staying at the BC?

Thanks

Just to be clear for me , does this mean I can call anywhere in the United States with a different area code for free....?

How much does the Resort Service Package cost and what does it include?

Resort Service Package is $17 + tax per day and includes:


Unlimited domestic long distance and local calls
Unlimited access to the resorts health club facilities
In room high-speed Internet access
2 bottles of water daily

Not sure about the smores question, but the BC is not far at all from the Dolphin. From the exit at bottom of the Dolphin's escalators by Blue Zoo, it's a 10 min. or so walk, depending on walking speed. We usually don't set any walking speed records,lol...

I am so excited to finally get to stay at the Swan in 63 days. I love having parents who work for starwoods hotels so I can get employee rates.

We will be showing up at the Dolphin a few days after you (Wednesday). Have never stayed at the Swan, but we stayed at the Dolphin two years ago. I think you will enjoy it!

We have eaten at the Swan before but not stayed. I have stayed at many a Starwood hotel so I know how awesome it is going to be!!!!

We have tried to stay many times but they never offered the employee rates when we were going. So happy I was able to plan around what they had open. Now if they would just open up employee rates for our November dates.....

We usually stay at Pop and we love it, but oh those heavenly beds!!!! Can't wait to get to those heavenly beds. And being able to walk to Epcot and DHS.

The location alone may spoil you from ever wanting to go back to Pop.
