I would just call. Have them check CAA if you've got it. There's sometimes a recipe club rate and it's free to subscribe to the recipe club. Sometimes there are All Ears rates at Starwood properties in Orlando. By calling you can have a reservations agent compare all the best rates so you can choose.

ETA - I would check and see if it's cheaper to break up your dates into multiple reservations too. You have 7 nights there and if only one night is very fully booked that one night will bring the rate up for the whole stay. If it's the first or last night maybe stay somewhere else.

For years I kept hearing about these great discounts for Swan and Dolphin, but I've never seen the place under 250. I'll be watching this thread to see if you find anything.

Don't forget you also will be charge a daily resort fee of $25 plus a parking fee of $15 on top of the nightly rate. It is charged by both the Swan and Dolphin hotels

You can also apply for a Sheraton Credit Card and get some point to redeem for at least one maybe two nights and then just pay the $40 fee's


The 3rd and 4th are sold out.

the cheapest I've seen is $288...and I think that is what we are booked at.. but when you add resort fees and tax its $347 a night.. for a resort I don't even want to stay at (family member getting married there and wants the whole family staying there)...

Is that the group rate the bride and groom arranged for?

Is anyone a teacher in your group? They offer pretty good rates at Swan/Dolphin.

If you are going to call and ask about the CAA rate make sure to ask for the AAA rate....not CAA. They don't know what CAA is and it's all the same.

Are you a SPG member?

SPG members can use points/cash combo...and when I was checking Dolphins for Dec/2014, it cost me $110 plus points
