    ADR question: are Swan/Dolphin/Swan Res considered "on property" with regards to ADR's and thus eligible for the "60 day + length of stay" ADR benefit? I've read yes and no.

    Hey There, Joshua!

    Welcome back to planDisney!  One of my favorite parts of planning a Walt Disney World vacation is making advance dining reservations.  Not only do those reservations help anchor my plans for each day, but once they're set, my upcoming visit finally starts feeling real!  Even though you still have some time before your dining reservation window opens, I'm glad to hear you've already got meals on your mind –– that way, you'll have plenty of time to explore all your options before it's time to book a table.

    Since it's been some time since I've stayed at one of these hotels, I reached out to my fellow Panelist, Lisa E., who recently returned from a stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and she confirmed the great news –– Guests of the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, and Swan Reserve hotels enjoy the same perks as Guests of other Disney Resorts Collection hotels when it comes to making advance dining reservations.  That means you'll be able to book Walt Disney World dining reservations up to 60 days in advance of check-in for the entire length of your stay, up to 10 days.  Just be sure to set your alarm on the morning you're ready to grab a table –– booking opens up bright and early, typically around 5:45 AM.

    But guess what –– as a Guest of the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, or Swan Reserve hotel, dining isn't the only early-booking window you'll enjoy.  You'll also have the option to purchase Individual Lightning Lane access for the most popular attractions at each Walt Disney World theme park beginning at 7 AM each day.  That means you'll have a prime chance to grab a spot for exciting rides like Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance.  Also, be sure to keep in mind that you don't need to add the Genie+ service in order to book an Individual Lightning Lane –– you can choose to purchase up to two of these attractions separately or combine them with Genie+ for more Lightning Lane access during your visit.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with another question, Joshua.  I hope your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation is filled with delicious dishes from start to finish!

    Happy Planning,
