Welcome to the dis, refinnej.

Not silly at all. 2, plus a very small, low table.

Evidently YMMV. None would do it for me in the two trips I've tried it.

We had no problem having a package delivered 2 years ago. Will be there in a few weeks and will check it out again.

I have had items purchased in the parks delivered to Swan and Dolphin on each of my last four trips (most recent in September/October, 2012). Pick up was at the Disney gift store in each hotel. Perhaps you attempted to deliver an item too close in proximity to your check-out date?

It's one of the stated benefits right on the home page here:

http://www.swandolphin.com/home.html

We've never had a problem in our many stays.

Cheers,

Picabu might also be an option at the Dolphin.

And the redone Patisserie in Epcot will now be opening at 9 AM rather than 11 AM.
I would love to wander over to France first thing in the morning!

The WDW stores deliver to resorts (including the Swan and Dolphin) after 1:00 the following day. If you want same-day pick-up, you can have your purchases held at the front or rear (International Gateway) of the park.

We making our second trip to the world last time we stayed at the poly and loved the convince of it. I'm trying to be frugal this time and am looking at the swan. Sooo my question is will we regret not being on the monorails? We r doing 6 nights. 2 days( maybe more) will be at the water parks. Lots of time at Epcot and AK. A half day at MK. Looking forward to more of a relaxing trip playing at pool, drinking by the pool. We will eating TS at many different resorts Having used the monorail was so convenient to Epcot will the walk be a major bummer now? Thanks for anyone's input

The "walk" to Epcot is a major plus! The Grotto pool and the Cabana Bar are 2 other major pluses!!

Am I able to attach my Dolphin reservation to My Disney Experience account? I tried online after seeing that Swan & Dolphin were options to choose from under the hotel reservations section, but I've not been able to do so. I booked directly with the Dolphin if that makes a difference.

Just back today. Wonderful stay at the Dolphin, as usual!!! Beautiful room. Gorgeous weather. Lovely time spent with some of our friends and relatives in the area! We enjoyed Shula's, il Mulino, bluezoo, Fresh, and Cabana Bar! DD and my cousins said the new Taco area at Picabu was delicious!

Nancy- we stopped at the new pastry shop in France one morning. Oo la la! ;-). Reminded us of our time in Paris this past May! Chocolate crossionts were great!

I'm wondering this too although I really have zero interest in this whole magic band and scheduling Fastpasses in advance.

The walk is one of our favorite things about staying at the Swan and other Epcot resorts. I don't like having to wait on transportation, especially after a park closes. We love ending a day at Epcot and then walking back to the resort after Illuminations.

Add me to the list of people wanting to know, but I think we need to just give it some more time to sort itself out.

I'm hoping that enough info and some touring plans come out in advance enough to our trip in June. If the new FP+ has little effect on the old FP system, I may just stick with the old. If it does have a noticeable impact I may need to experiment, maybe get my 3 FP's for an afternoon and open the EMH at a different park?

I called in-house reservations and asked about it, and they honored the $151/night rate. Between the two drops in price, the rate is now $28 less per night! I'm a happy girl.
Check your rates everyone!
