    I booked two nights at the Dolphin hotel through my Southwest credit card. How do I get that to show up in MyDisney or something similar so that I can start planning our vacation? Does this allow me to get discounted ticket prices for Magic Kingdom?

    Hi there, Meghan!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by to discuss your July vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth. I love visiting Walt Disney World during Olaf's favorite season. The summer vibes are excellent, with families joyfully enjoying school holidays together. My crew and I will be there in August, and we can't wait!

    Meghan, when you book a room at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel through Southwest, Disney, or Marriott, you should receive a confirmation number to link to your My Disney Experience account. It usually takes about 72 hours for the Disney system to recognize a third-party reservation, so if it's been at least three days since you booked, here are your next steps.

    1. On the Walt Disney World home page, use the My Disney Experience dropdown and select "My Plans." You'll then be prompted to log into your My Disney account.
    2. Scroll down and find a blue box that says "+ Add More Plans."
    3. Click the white arrow, then choose "Link Reservations and Purchases."
    4. Tap the first tile for "Resort Reservation or Vacation Package."
    5. Add your confirmation number, and your booking will appear in your plans on the My Disney Experience website and the "My Resort" section of the My Disney Experience mobile app.
    If you encounter problems, call Southwest or the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel directly to ensure you have the correct confirmation number for the Walt Disney World website.

    Linking your resort reservation does not entitle you to discounted theme park tickets, but you can buy these directly on the Walt Disney World website and easily link them to members of your travel party. Discounts on single-day tickets are typically unavailable to the general public, but browse the special offers page to see if any current ticket deals work for you. If you want to visit for several days and explore all four theme parks, consider the 4-Day, 4-Park Magic Ticket. It's a fantastic offer for visits this summer. Best wishes for finding something that works for your July trip!

    I hope this has been helpful, Meghan. You are going to have an amazing time at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel. The location along Crescent Lake is one of my favorites in Walt Disney World. My family also loves dining at this resort. Quick tip: the crab nachos at Todd English's bluezoo are fabulous. Enjoy them without a reservation by sitting in the bar area. Thanks so much for sending your question to planDisney. Please write back if there is anything else we can do before your vacation begins. We're all ears, and we love to help!

    Wishing you magic and memories,
