Anyone on MDE can now make FP+ selections for the next 30 days. When you get to your 60 days, then the additional 30 will open up too.

Pizza Options?

More questions for the Dolphin pros, headed there in under a month!!!

Does the Dolphin have room delivery pizza options? I know that you can order pizza and have delivered at the other Disney resorts.

Also, any restrictions on coolers/drinks at the pool? We are planning on bringing soft-sided cooler and plastic/aluminum cans to the pool. Are we going to get in trouble if we don't buy drinks from the pool bar and bring our own?

What is the bus route like to MK? I think Dolphin shares a bus with Swan/Beach club/Boardwalk. How long does it take to get to MK and return trip? We are debated on driving vs. buses for our MK day.

Thanks

There is a menu in each room offering delivery pizza. Picabu also has pizza but you order it there and carry it out or eat in the dining room.

The bus to MK takes about 30 minutes. It stops at Swan then Dolphin then MK. On the way back it stops at beach club first then swan then dolphin.

I don't know about coolers.

The Dolphin does serve pizza on their room service menu:

12" Pizza - fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, sweet basil.

Additional toppings: cheddar, fontina, pepperoni, sausage, grilled chicken, bacon, ham, mushrooms, onions, peppers, olives, tomato , jalapeno, pineapple.

One topping: Add $1.00
Three toppings: Add $2.50 $14.00


Also, their counter service restaurant, Picabu, is open 24 hours and serves pizza as well. You can get it there or you can get it to go and bring it back to your room.

Not 100% sure on the pool thing. I know we've always kept a cooler in our room stocked with water and other adult beverages, but I've never tried to bring it down to the pool.

It does share a bus route with Swan, Boardwalk, and Yacht/Beach. I can't recall the exact route. It's towards the beginning going one way and at the end going the other.

I have a question, if anybody happens to know the answer. I have a split stay coming up, in October. 5 nights at Swan and then 5 nights at Boardwalk Villas. Will I be able to book all 10 days worth of FP+ at 60 days prior to my Swan check-in, do you think, or will I have to wait until 5 days later to make my FP+ reservations for my Boardwalk Villas stay

Regarding the bus, I have been there when the Swan had a bus by itself (only a few trips and not recently), the Swan and Dolphin only (most often), both of those plus the BW (second most often) and those three plus the Y&BC (least often).

I think you should be able to make all 10 days of FP+ reservations 60 days prior to your Swan check in day. We had a BC stay of 1 day prior to 6 days at the Dolphin and I was able to book all days 60 days prior to my BC check-in.

I can answer the bolded with certainty--no restrictions--we ALWAYS bring our own soft sided cooler with adult beverages and it has never been a problem. The only problem we have is we never bring enough! My husband likes to share with others.

Hopefully looking at our first Dolphin stay in September. Have had a good look round on a previous trip, pools, beach area and dining look great.

It's just the perfect location, with the other hotels and EPCOT closeby.
