Thanks! I had no idea they had an Alamo counter there too.

I am staying at the Dolphin this July, and I am looking forward to it. It looks like a very pretty resort.

Can someone tell me, is there a way for me to pay my room bill early? I usually do that when I stay at an official Disney hotel, but can't find a way to do it for the Dolphin. Also, do they also have express checkout at the Dolphin?

You sure can. What I did last time was call the 800 number and made my payment. The day of check-out my "bill" was delivered to my room under the door and I was ready to pack up and leave.

Thanks... trying to get everything taken care of ahead of time. I have changed so many things so far that my head is spinning.
There is a transfer available but I thought you were using the DCL Transfers?

We need to talk...try to call me tonight 4:00 CST if possible. I will be on my way home from work at that time and will have about 15 min to chat.

1) You'll still go down to the welcome center, you've puchased your transfers thru DCL, so they will get you there, it may be a DCL or ME bus.

2) In regards to the keys, that only works when you book a land and sea vacation not staying at Swan or Dolphin, remember those are Starwood properties and have different keys.

3) Your pick up is about noon, they'll give you exact time and location when you check in, just let them know you have a Disney cruise starting the next day.

I think the BEST way to get to Universal is to rent a car and drive there. But since you don't want to drive, Mears has shuttles from the Swan and Dolphin. I don't remember the price.

You can purchase park tickets at the gate, or ahead of time from a discounter like Undercover Tourist (www.undercovertourist.com). Also check out Universal's web site for ticket specials (http://www.universalorlando.com/tickets.html).

Questions about Swan's Grand Suite

Just booked a 1BR grand suite for next month and have a few questions....

1. What items are included in the kitchenette? Trying to plan if we could have cereal in the morning or microwave popcorn.

2. Does anyone know where these rooms are? I normally don't like to make room requests, but I did request a balcony. What are my chances? I did sign up online to be a SPG.

3. I have seen several pictures online and some seem to look different. Have the rooms been recently refurbished?

4. Does everyone in your party receive a room key like at the Disney hotels to use for EMH?

5. We normally stay at DVC resorts in the 1BR villas. How do these rooms compare in size?

Thanks so much!!!

We saw the last one in March! Just go to the main corridor at the Swan and walk all the way down to the end where there is a round window facing the Boardwalk. You will see the shuttle go right over the Boardwalk! It is a great view from the 6th and 7th floor of the Swan!

Thanks Nancy for your response! Say, I recall a gentleman who was always on the Sand D Boards who always was so helpful....his name is escaping me at the moment. Has he been around here lately

anbouk~You may thinking of Dan Murphy.

We made our dining ressies this past week!

We had to wait the 90 days for each date we wanted because we are staying at the Swan but I got them all in (July 29-August 3). Time is coming closer for our trip!

Hey Ya'll. I just found this thread this AM. We stayed at the Swan about 6 years ago. We loved it. We are taking a Disney cruise on June 25. We decided to drive down a couple of days early and go to one of the water parks- never been to one of them before. We were able to get the teachers' rate of $149 + tax and resort fee for June 23 & 24. We are looking forward to seeing how the hotel has changed since our last visit.

That's who I was thinking of, too! Dan has been on the DIS for a long time, and has been so helpful to many people over the years.
