    I booked a vacation package directly through the Walt Disney World website. We are staying at the Dolphin. How does the check in process staying here differ from staying at a Disney Resort Hotel?

    Greetings, and welcome to planDisney, Ryan!

    Thank you for bringing your excellent question to planDisney - it would be my pleasure to assist you today so you can continue your planning to The Most Magical Place on Earth during the Halloween Events and Festivities - BOO-tacular!

    Ryan, check-in at the Walt Disney World Dolphin is a little different than check-in at Disney Resorts Collection Hotels. To manage your check-in and other hotel-specific vacation essentials you will need to download the Marriott Bonvoy app and kindly create a Marriott account. Upon your arrival at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Front Desk, you can check to see if your Guest Room is ready and if it is not, then you can leave a contact number to receive a Text notification when your Guest Room is ready. Ryan, you are welcome to leave your luggage with the hotel bell services so you can head out, catch a Friendship Boat and enjoy the nearby Disney's BoardWalk entertainment, shopping and dining area. Or, catch a ride on the nearby Disney Skyliner gondola transportation from Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a breezy and scenic ride to EPCOT and many other Disney Resorts Collection Hotels on the gondola route.

    Ryan, you will be pleased to learn that Guests at the Walt Disney World Dolphin enjoy some of the magical benefits as Guests at Disney Resorts Collection Hotels, such as Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours

    Be sure to link your Walt Disney World Resort dining and Enchanting Extras Collection reservations and purchases to your Disney account to be able to enhance your visit and access the Disney magic during your stay. Ryan, you can purchase a MagicBand or MagicBand+ at Walt Disney World Resort or in advance of your arrival via shopDisney to store your valid theme park admission and to enjoy many interactive experiences. And be sure to download the My Disney Experience app to manage your plans and travel party before and during your visit - especially with saving time waiting in lines for attractions that offer the Lightning Lane entrance by purchasing the Disney Genie+ Service.

    Don’t forget to make your Disney Park Pass - Theme Park Reservations for each day of valid theme park admission as this is the process of visiting the theme parks at this time.

    Check to see if your Walt Disney World Dolphin reservation is eligible for the Quick-Service Dine Card, an affordable way to eat on the go.

    Ryan, I hope this information serves you well. Please stop by planDisney to ask me about enhancing your experiences during your visit - thank you!
