It was the morning EMH so we only needed to show the room key to get into the park, they don't require a room key to get on the rides. Could be the difference......

I posted pics from our Executive Suite stay last year here on the thread, let me see if I can go back & find the page & post number for you. There is a layout on the swandolphin.com website, but not all of their suites are identical, and vary in shape & size from Swan to Dolphin.

The pics are posted on the Swan Dolphin Picture Thread - it's on page 26 of that thread, post #385. (After 12 years on these boards you'd think I'd have learned how to copy & post links to other threads by now, but sadly, I haven't!!!)

Seeing the pics makes me want to stay there again SOON!

We always asked for a key for our daughter for EMH. I think you would be best to do as you plan, so there isn't a problem at some point. Better have it and not be asked, than be asked and not have it! ;-)

Laundry question

Hi Everyone,

Not sure if this is possible, but can you send laundry out to be done for you at the Swan? I'm not interested in spending vacation time doing laundry and don't really want to purchase the amount of clothes we'd need to bring, so wanted to see if I could just have some things laundered for us and find out if anyone knew the cost.

Thanks!

Beth
ps - always wondered where everyone got all those little dancing smilies - and here they are!! Anytime I see something shocking I think of the blue/purple hair raising dude on here!

Welcome to the DIS (and to smilies - even blue hair raising ones!)

Yes you can have laundry sent out at The Swan. There is a bag either on the back of the door or in the closet to use for this. It's not cheap, but sometimes convenience outweighs the cost!

Oh I see... that makes sense! We've never done morning EMH. Thanks

This might have been answered somewhere on the thread already, but I just missed it. What are suggestions for round trip transportation that's not too expensive between the Dolphin and Orlando International airport? We have a group of 5 plus luggage and I would prefer not to take a shuttle or something we share with others.

Unfortunatley there's nothing that's "not too expensive." If you don't want to use a shared shuttle, then your only options are a taxi - and you'll need a van for 5 people, or a town car/SUV service. Both will cost you about $65 one way plus tip.

That definitely helped. Thanks! We are getting a 1BR, and they said the 1br will have two queens/fulls. I'm assuming the only difference is we won't have the king bedroom like you did in your pictures. How was the view? We are staying there for a super short stay to mourn the end of summer. Wish we could be there longer!

You are correct, same as what we had, minus the attached king room. The view was good, nothing spectacular, but not bad. We had 3 balconies, one in each room. We were in a corner of the building facing the waterway between Swan & Boardwalk. Here are some view pics:

View from the parlor room balcony & the 2 double bed room balcony:

How do they charge you for parking? Is it by the day or by night? (example, if we check in on monday at 8am and check out on wednesday at 5pm, will we be charge 2 X $15 for 2 nights OR 3 X $15 for 3 days because it was more then 48 hours) Thanks
