Has anyone heard how FP+ has been working at S&D. We arrive thurs and were wondering how fast they are gone each day-we have a number of days we will not enter until late afternoon.

Assuming all FP- will be gone, but hoping to hear some FP+ have been available later?

Hi everyone. We leave in 11 days for our first stay at the Dolphin. This thread has been so helpful! I've read to page 62 and had to stop (these crazy kids want dinner ). Can someone please tell me what a lake view room means?
Thank you in advance!

Sounds great as always, S Mom. And like Nancy said, the next couple days are cold down there. Not as cold as here for sure, but still cold.

Enjoy when you get there.

I read something about a gift card on rest.com for Garden Grove rest. but when I type in the zip code nothing comes up. Do they still offer this discount? Also when I try to to get breakfast reservations on the WDW website only dinner reservations come up. Do they take reservations for breakfast?

No, Garden Grove is no longer participating. I got notified that I have to choose something else for my $25 one I had bought, but I can't find anything else I can use. Was about to click on House of Blues when I realized it said $100 minimum . And I don't think you'll need a ressie at any time; we've never seen more than half a dozen tables filled in there. We like it, though, especially Mediterranean night. Never tried breakfast.

Good luck to SingingMom and everyone else trying to get down to WDW this week and these next couple of weeks with the weather challenges. I hope things work out for all.

I took the plunge this morning and booked my May stay at Dolphin with the AAA resort credit rate. It still is way less than the 30% off deal at BC/YC or BWI. I need two rooms and just can't pay those rates. I really liked the Dolphin when I stayed two years ago. The Epcot area is my fav and this will be a shorter trip than we usually take (4 days, 5 nights) so we don't want to be at a moderate. Dolphin is right in the action.

I'll keep watching for a rate drop but for now I'll take what I got.

We are going to be at Fantasia gardens to play golf on our non park day and it looks like we can just walk across the street and eat breakfast at Garden Grove before we play.

It means your room will have a view of the lake.

Thanks Nancy, Dan, & Vicb!

Really disappointed we aren't going to be arriving tomorrow, but with the bitter cold & the crazy delays at the airport, it might be better to wait the extra two days. At least we are able to add the two days to the end of the trip. Just feel bad about the Wishes Dessert Party because we do enjoy the reserved seats to watch the fireworks.

Jet Blue is flying again starting at 10 am - of course our original flight was 9 am! Timing is everything. Lol

Have an espresso martini waiting for me, please!! (Or glass of champagne, or Mai tai at the cabana bar.....LOLOLOL )

I figure there is no point in being upset over things not in our power! :-) At least we are still going to be there - just a few days later than planned!

Dolphin lobby Bar makes a great espresso martini - We love to sit on the comfy couches and people watch. Great lobby to relax in after a long day at the parks!

Safe travels and have a wonderful trip!

Another place we love for cocktails is the lounge in Blue Zoo. We've had some fabulous Happy Hours there!

Forgot about the bluezoo Lounge! We will have to try that this week! We also like to sit poolside at the Cabana Bar.

You really can stay right at the Swan & Dolphin and never need to leave! I love the place! Prayers thar our revised flights all go smoothly!
