    I am going to Disney World over Thanksgiving and am considering staying at the Swan. Previously I have stayed at Port Orleans. What benefits are lost / what are the disadvantages to staying at the Swan or Dolphin? (Please be specific if you can) Thanx!

    Guests of the Walt Disney World Swan or Dolphin resorts get many of the same benefits that are available to guests at the Disney-operated resorts. These benefits include resort transportation, Extra Magic hours and package delivery from the parks to your hotel.

    The one exception is that you will not be able to charge purchases made outside of the hotels to your room account.

    Disadvantages also include:

    Use of the health club requires an extra fee, as does self-parking at the resort.
    The Swan and Dolphin host many convention and tour groups.
    The Magical Express airport shuttle is not offered.

    Consider the location as it may far outweigh the disadvantages!
