We are staying at the Dolphin this Christmas week and the last time we went we stayed off property (I know this isn't " official disney" but thrilled to be so close and get emh) and we had to take cabs everywhere and it took forever to get to where we wanted to go and was so pricey. SO we are so excited to be in walking distance to Epcot and quick transportation to DHS. Can you walk to the monorail from the Dolphin to get to MK or what is the best fastest way to get there? Are there places to eat at the dolphin or swan that are worth booking now? We don't want to eat many sit down type of meals for price reasons but are planning to book a few special dinners. Any other tips or recommendations or ideas to have the best time over a really busy time of year? We were so spoiled last time although we stayed off disney we had low crowds and perfect weather in sept.
