2 Questions, if I may...

These may be basic, but I read the thread but still can't comprehend 100%...

1. Can we get Magic Band if we stay at Swan and Dolphin resort?

2. Once we book the resort, what do I need to get the MB and FB+?

I still haven't booked anything yet but we will be visiting in mid-October.

Thanks!

My trip isn't until Feb. The comment was in response to the rather rapid rollout of resorts with MB's in sept. I'm sure we'll find out about the s&d soon.

There was a poster on a few other MB threads saying she "knew" that the Hilton and the S&D would have MB and FP+ by the end of the year. Hope she's right!!!

I just called the Swan yesterday and asked a few questions about this...

1. No. As of right now, S/D are NOT MB nor FP+ eligible and the lady I spoke to did not have any info as to when/if they will be.

2. See answer to #1 above

Everything is going to eventually be MB and everyone will eventually be using FP+. The question is will this happen for you in time for your Oct trip? Probably not as MB are still only in their testing stage and Swan and Dolphin have not been included in testing so far (that I'm aware of).

I recently made a reservation at AoA for March and when I called to get help linking it to MDE they asked me if I was staying at a resort that had been invited to MB testing I told her my stay wasn't until March. The agent then said most of the resorts should be using MB by then. So of course there are no guarantees but I get the impression Disney is aiming to have MB rolled out to all the resorts by early next year.

I think it is already a fact that all on-site hotels, excluding shades of green and S&D, are using MB and FP. AoA is already on board. I don't think the CM means S&D, but I hope so!

Red face Kimono's karaoke question

Hey there Swan and Dolphin aficionados!

On my upcoming trip, I'm going to be spending an evening at the Boardwalk for dinner and funtimes. I read that Kimono's at the Swan has not only karaoke, but sushi. This trip is going to be solo, and I was thinking about heading over there. For folks that have been there, would it be weird/awkward to be a party of one?

Question if I may and excuse if this has been asked before

I am going to the Mediterranean Market for breakfast and am not staying at the hotel. Do we have to pay full for the parking?

Hi,

Do you get early entry to the parks if you stay at the Swan or Dolphin as you do for other WDW resort hotels?

I wouldn't think so. I am most often solo on my Swan stays, eat solo a number of times at various restaurants each trip

You should be able to ask for a parking credit slip at the restaurant. Best to ask before your meal.

We go to Kimono's every trip...last year twice. There are always singles in there from conventions etc...starts off slow most nights but by the time 10pm rolls around everyone is singing and all friends!! I have gone alone before and the atmoshere is small and quaint...everyone soooo friendly! YOu will have so much fun. When are you going? Ill be there 10/14!!!

So the Disney owned resorts will fence and lock their pools at night but what about the Swan and Dolphin? Anyone know if they will also fall victim?

Does anyone know about the wing rooms at the Dolphin, I think that's what they are, specifically the ones on the end that are greenish in color, they appear to have more private balconies, what kind of rooms are these are they suites? and info would be appreciated.

Hello, Sorry if I am bothering anyone or if someone already asked this before, I have a friend who is staying at the Swan&Dolphin, she wanted to know if anyone knew if the rooms had a coffee pot and if so what kind. Thanks for any help, Hope everyone has a great trip.

If they fence the grotto it will have to be a huge fence. Not pretty either. Does anyone know why Disney decided this? Maybe and insurance thing. My guess is if someone gets injured in a Starwood pool Disney is not responsible. So it will probably be a Starwood decision. If I had to guess what Starwood would do I would guess they probably won't fence the pool.

They have these little coffee pots that make a single cup of coffee at a time. They give you coffee and sugar and sweetener. DH likes liquid creamer so he would grab a few from Picabu when we got dinner. You could also bring your own. I think they just have powdered.
