Can someone tell me what April dates are coming up available for a Cash + Points reservation? When I input my dates - April 20 to 26 - it comes up as unavailable.

Thanks!

Live from the Dolphin! Arrived this morning after an 8 am flight. Room wasn't ready so we left our bags with the bellman and headed to Epcot and then the Grand Floridian for Afternoon tea, which was terrific! Came back through Epcot, got FP for Soarin', saw a few characters, went back to check in and unpack a bit, headed back to Epcot, rode Test Track, Soarin, and had a great late dinner at Tutto Gusto in Italy. Full first day!!

Upgraded room - Epcot view with balcony. So happy to be back at the Dolphin after a two year absence. (5 years straight visits before that! )
81 degrees and sunny. This "jersey girl" was thrilled to wear shorts in January!!!

Any Dolphin questions, ask and I'll help if I can. We are here until next Wednesday!

I know it's very hard to find Cash&Points for more than 2 or 3 nights in a row.

Here's what I found for C&P at Dolphin in April:

4/6 & 7
4/11 & 12
4/15
4/18, 19, 20 & 21 (surprised there are 4 nights in a row!)

Swan:

4/6 & 7
4/11
4/14
4/19
4/26

So it looks like you could get your first 2 nights at Dolphin on Cash&Points.

I was able to get the cash/points for Apr 11th and 12th. In all the years we have stayed at the Dolphin, this is the first time I had seen it available.

Thanks for sharing your trip with us, SingingMom. A friend of mine is arriving at the Swan on Saturday, and she'll be happy to hear that it's short-wearing weather!

So it looks like you could get your first 2 nights at Dolphin on Cash&Points.
Thanks so much for finding that information for me. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like it will work for our dates, after all. The Dolphin isn't available for the remaining 4 days of our trip, and the Swan is only showing a much higher pre-paid rate for the same days. Looks like I'll have to stick with one free night and the AAA rate for the other 5 nights, for now.

At least now I know that Cash + Points at the S/D is a reality, and not just an urban legend, LOL.

That's great...glad it worked out for you!

Several years ago I got C&P for the Swan for a late July trip. We got it for all 5 nights. Then we got more magic - we were comp upgraded to a junior suite. I haven't seen C&P for our subsequent late July trips since then. Take it when you can.

I'm reading this thread, smelling my aloe and green tea lotion, wishing I was at the Swan. We haven't been in 2 years (went to Disneyland last year). Hope all of you have the best time ever on your next trip!

There are some for late July at the Dolphin: 7/23, 7/24, 7/25, 7/28 and 7/29.

I need some help from some SPG experts (RachelTori?). Some of my dates are available for points/cash, but when I change it from 2 adults to 2 adults/2 children, the dates grey out and I get this message at the bottom:

SPG Free Night Award and SPG Cash & Points reservations booked online can consist of 1 room, with up to 2 guests per room. Call SPG Customer Care for additional availability.

Is that true? You can only use C&P and free nights with just 2 guests? Even when the others are children? However, I notice it states "booked online". Does that mean if I call it would be different? TIA!
