We were in the “wild animals” cage, which was very fitting for us

Where is the SWW special fireworks show located? Will there be a Fantasmic that same night also? We will likely park hop one evening and the evening show might be a great thing for us but trying to decide still.

1st timer SWW ?'s

We are going the 1st weekend of June, here are our questions:

Do the resorts do anything SW-related? Or is it solely at HS?
If we stay at AOA are we completely of the way? And would staying at the Swan or Dolphin be worth it for distance? We have a 3yo so AOA's LM rooms would be awesome for her.
Dining Plan 2 credits for the SW Character meals vs paying out of pocket? What makes most sense?

We are 2 adults, 7 yo boy and 3 yo girl.
Thank you!

specrn - yes! as Itinkso has linked, please visit us on the new 2015 SWW thread for up to date information on next year.

but to answer your questions:
No, the resorts do not really do anything SW related aside from some very limited merchandise in the gift shops such as vinylmations.

Staying at the Swan Dolphin is an excellent choice for convenience; nice rooms w/heavenly beds; a great pool area; a 24hr quick service restaurant and easy access to two parks.

The LM rooms are a pretty far walk to get to at AoA.
But this is a personal decision. Alot depends on your needs - staying offsite (swan/dolphin) vs onsite - which offers magical express; various meal plans; refillable mugs; the landscape of flavors food court; Disney theming and cm's. I would recommend having your own vehicle if you choose AoA.

good luck with your plans.

AoA isn't far from HS but you have to take a bus. The LM section is the farthest section from the bus stop but I'm sure you expect to walk at Disney. Swan and Dolphin are nice but I hate the resort fees. It's not worth it to me even though you can walk to HS or take the boat. Idk about SW character meal. I wanted to do one until I saw the price!! GEEZ!!!! 😳 idk if I would drop 2 TS crédits on it though. GL!
