Yes S/D have their own refillable mugs, exclusive only to S/D resorts.

I've never stayed at the Dolphin (first time will be this coming Tuesday), and it would be best to call check, but I'd bet a considerable amount of money that bell services will refrigerate a delivery for you. It's a deluxe resort, it's expected. We've had it done for us at both Beach Club and Animal Kingdom Lodge....

Not only do they have their own mugs, but they have distinct hot & cold refillable mugs -- The plastic one with all of the restaurant logos is only refillable for cold fountain drinks (and iced tea). The silvertone mug that says "java bar" is only refillable for coffee & tea (don't recall if hot chocolate is an option).

I found out about this change at the beginning of November. I brought back my restaurant logo mug and filled it with hot water and grabbed a tea bag at Picabu. The cashier charged me for the tea and when I asked, she explained that there was now a separate mug for hot beverages. Later, I asked at the concierge desk and they did confirm that it was the new policy.


Unrelated - I think I recall someone previously asking in the thread if the "Make a Green Choice" is selected, can the $5 option be applied to one's room folio. The cards themselves explain that if you are selecting the 500 point option, you turn in the cards at checkout to have the points posted to your account. If you want to use the $5 food & beverage option, you actually turn in the card to the restaurant at the time of purchase to redeem. If you are in some sort of multi-room suite setup (bedroom + parlor, 2 bedrooms + parlor), each card in the setup should receive its own card. That can add up nicely!

LaurenT, will you post a mini-review here? I'm always interested in your opinion whenever I see you post.

Thanks!

Can't wait to be able to make reservations for 10/19 & 10/20 for the F&W festival. We've had to put it off as we are school teachers and are waiting for our first paycheck of the school year. Hopefully the teacher rate will still be available!

I'm staying at the Dolphin for the very first time Dec. 8 after our cruise. I know you can't do ME when staying there, but do they do RAC? I'm spoiled by using RAC so I really hope so.

Thanks so much!

You can check-in online for your flight at either resort via the computers/printers in each lobby. However, there is no luggage check-in.

Darn it. Thanks. Guess I'll have to head to the airport earlier than I planned.

When I stay at the WDW owned resorts, I can bring my luggage down to the entrance of the hotel and there are CMs there who check it in for me. That way you don't have to handle your bags again until you're at your home airport.
