We are planning at trip over Halloween. Has anyone ever gone to the Swan and Dolphins Halloween party? I don't really want to go to MNSSHP. We will be staying at the Dolphin. Any other Halloween ideas?

Thanks so much!!! I called back to book and asked about AP rates too, it was 159 with no credit. So I booked the AAA for the better deal!!!

Other than a few sprinkles late at night - we had no rain.
Nancy - how does the dessert party work? Thanks!

Thanks for the previous info on the Swan v. Dolphin. We just booked March 21-29 at the Swan (Dolphin is sold out at the moment). We can't wait to try the Swan as we have been to the Dolphin 4 times in the past. My family absolutely LOVES this area and we look forward to being there again! Even if it is the week before Easter!

It starts about an hour before the fireworks from the Tomorrowland Terrace, and I booked it online. The cost varies, but ours was $29.81/pp with tax on a Thursday in July. There's a great review about it at All Ears: http://land.allears.net/blogs/michaelbachand/2010/04/

You need to walk over to the Swan lap pool area. There is a walkway just beyond it that leads to the mini golf.

Sorry to hijack this, but I wanted to add that we did this last summer and loved it. Not so much for the desserts but the relaxed atmosphere of NOT staking out a spot to watch wishes!! And also for the amazing photopass pics we got. The castle in the background at night was priceless! And my dd loved tinkerbell flying right over our heads!

Morning All,
I've been scanning through the majority of this thread, but can't see the answer to this question so have come out of lurkdom!

I have an AAA rate booked, but following the links posted my dates also appear available for an AAA123 rate. However, this rate looks identical to that I've already booked, i.e. I see no mention of the $50 credit anywhere?

Ignore me, I tried some earlier dates and can see the different rates now, one just Automobile Association and one which also says Resort Credit Offer - musn't be any credit offer available for my dates. Does the credit offer generally come out nearer the time? I'm looking over a year out and just the standard AAA offer comes up, but the same time this year has resort credit...

It's hard to say what discounts/promos might be offered next year. I would keep checking this page: http://www.swandolphin.com/offers/

It lists the current offers and is updated as new discounts are released!

Thank you Mouseteacher, OK i think i see it on the bling map now, looks like a bit of a walk for grandpa, but if we go in the evening might not seem so bad with the sun down I can't wait, first time ever at the Dolphin in two days and praying for good weather! my dd8 is going to flip out, she has no idea, we're going to surprise her on Friday
