For now, I'll only post pics I've taken, but I may live dangerously and post other people's photos, too.

Here's one I took:

Do you know if you can request they remove the items from the minibar so you can use the refrigerator for food for a special needs child? My son has ASD & has a very limited diet of food he will eat.
We are staying at WL in Dec 2008, but I have always thought the Swan & Dolphin were very pretty/cozy looking resorts, but I sure do enjoy the advantages of the DME.
Hi DisneyNDecember

Thanks for the photo comment.

As far as I know you cannot participate in the DME and also the dining plan. The S/D has some awesome restaurants but unfortunately they are not included in the DDP. Also you cannot charge things in the parks to your hotel room. Other than that there's not much difference.

Andy

Sorry I missed your question about the fridge.

I think this is a grey area with the S/D. When we went in 2005 with our DD1.5 she was allergic to pretty much everything but sawdust. So I originally phoned the Dolphin directly and requested to have a fridge as I heard you can get a fridge at no cost for medical reasons. When I talked to the person at the front desk she told me that they don't do that any more and I'd have to pay $12 a day for a fridge. She was kind of rude and perhaps a bad time in the day for her. I called back the next day or that night (I can't remember exactly) as I wanted to talk to someone else about it. I asked for the manager on duty. She came on and was very nice and friendly. I explained about my DD needing a special diet and she said there was no problem and she'd have a (free) fridge ready in our room when we would arrive. Excellent customer service I thought and when we got there the fridge was set up with no issues at all.

Andy
