We're taking 17, 18 & 19 year old boys in June. How I wish I could buy this for them...it would save a small fortune!

This is a program that Starwood launched last year. Just my opinion, but I don't think it's a good deal for the vast majority of guests with kids.

If participating, guests have to opt in for every day of their stay. Except for drinks, kids can only order with a paying adult. Most kids meals with drinks are below $12 all-in. For $25 per day, that means you'll likely have to average more than two meals per day to get any value. Pretty tough to do when most guests want to spend the bulk of their time at the parks. Lastly, room service is not applicable with Kids Pass, and other kid friendly restaurants, like Garden Grove, are not participating. So you're pretty limited. Certainly good to know about, but there are probably very few guests that could get any value out of this program.

Thank you for starting the new thread!

My question is about the resort service fee. The website showed $14 per day and my confirmation showed that as well. When I emailed Swan to get the total for my stay (my confirmation doesn't give the grand total) and how it breaks down, they told me the service fee is $15.75?
I emailed her back, but shouldn't they honor what I have on the confirmation?

The resort fee is $14 plus tax. The current tax rate is 12.5%, which brings you up to $15.75.

Thank you for the shiny new thread! We're back to the Dolphin after a several year hiatus of staying at WDW resorts and we're very excited about our upcoming May trip. Some things have changed--the info on the Pantry thing is going to come in handy. I'm going to have to look into that.

I also noticed that now hot drink refills require their on refillable mug. Is there still a coffee pot of some kind available in the room? I didn't see it on the list and DH is going to throttle me if he can't have early morning access to caffeine.
