    If booking the Swan or Dolphin hotel, can I still make payments and is the one night deposit the same requirement as if booking through the Disney site?

    Hi Nicole,

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney! 

    It's super exciting to hear that you're putting together your trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. There's so much to enjoy about staying in the area around Disney's BoardWalk and the EPCOT Resort Area, including the easy proximity to Disney's Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. And of course, there's also a lot to love about a stroll around nearby Crescent Lake.

    As you likely know, Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Walt Disney World Swan Hotel are third-party hotels and not part of the Disney Resorts Collection and so some of the features and benefits offered will vary. 

    If you are booking your stay at either of these hotels online through The Walt Disney Travel Company, you'll see you have the option to book a vacation package that includes your room reservation and your theme park tickets. You'll also see you have the option to add a Disney Quick-Service Dining Card as well as rental car and Travel Protection Plan. When you book the package online at 31 days or more from your arrival, you would be required to pay a $200 deposit. The payment in full would be due 30 days before your arrival.  

    If you are booking a room-only reservation through The Walt Disney Travel Company, you can call (407) 939-1936 for pricing information and booking. You would put down a deposit of your first night's stay plus tax, with the balance due when you check in.

    Nicole, I hope this information is helpful. If you find you'd like additional assistance, you can reach out to The Walt Disney Travel Company at (407) 939-1936. You can also use the convenient online chat service to chat with a Cast Member. 

    Here's wishing you lots of Disney magic in your day today, Nicole!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
