    So I have already booked two rooms for my party in May, 2022 at the Dolphin, however, am looking now for hopper passes, it has been at least 9 years since I have been to your resort. Can you tell me if the genie is required to go to all four parks

    Welcome to planDisney, Rose! How exciting to hear you have a vacation planned to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth! I'm happy to help you!!

    You have chosen an absolutely beautiful resort! The Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel happens to be a favorite for our family and we recently enjoyed a stay there with our extended multi-generational family. As you are planning to visit the theme parks, Disney Genie Service provides a complimentary, personalized daily itinerary that will update throughout the day and makes suggestions based on your plans. You can choose to purchase Genie+ which allows you to make Lightning Lane reservations at more than 40 attractions and experiences throughout Walt Disney World theme parks. This is an add-on per ticket, but it is not required to enter the theme parks. If your theme park ticket includes the Park Hopper option, you can select Lightning Lane arrival windows across multiple theme parks. If you have not done so already, I would recommend downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile app before your arrival. The app will provide easy and convenient access to your park tickets, reservations, park maps, Genie, and so much more!

    As a Disney hotel guest, there are many benefits you're going to love! You can enjoy Early Theme Park Entry each day at all of the theme parks and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours at select theme parks on select nights. You also have access to complimentary resort transportation. There is bus transportation to Magic Kingdom Park, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and Disney Springs to and from the Dolphin Hotel. When you want to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT, you can use water transportation. You will need to make Disney Park Pass Reservations for each day that you would like to visit a theme park. If you add the park hopper option to your ticket, you can park hop to another theme park beginning at 2:00 p.m., and no additional theme park reservation is needed.

    As you are making plans, I wanted to mention that you can make advanced dining reservations up to 60 days from the date of your check-in. There are so many amazing restaurant choices and something for everyone to enjoy! I would also recommend planning some time to enjoy your resort. The pools at the Dolphin are amazing and there are Swan paddle boats available to use which are included in your resort fee. There is also a sand beach with hammocks and a playground if you have any little ones in your travel party.  

    The Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration is happening during your stay and you won't want to miss the fun! I'm so excited for you to visit after so many years! Please visit us again at planDisney if we can answer any additional questions.

    Happy Planning!
