    My family is going to Disney in July. We first have DVC reservations at Beach Club, but are then staying at the Dolphin and the other group will be at the Swan Reserve. Are we able to use Disney travel agents for the second part of our time there?

    Hi there, Nikki! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question.

    It sounds as if your vacation planning is already off to a fantastic start! A summer vacation at the Most Magical Place on Earth, with a magical split stay at Disney's Beach Club Villas and Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin sounds like a dream! My family and I LOVE split stays. We love getting the chance to experience the different theming and vibes of the different Resorts, and it feels like two vacations in one! Your pixie-dusted summer split stay will be here before you know it, so, let's get this planning party started!

    Since the second half of your split stay will not be on Disney Vacation Club Vacation Points, you can absolutely use a Travel Agent to plan and book this portion of your vacation at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve! I recommend doing an internet search for an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner to find a Travel Agent that is expertly trained in planning magical vacations!

    During your summer stay at Disney's Beach Club Villas, be sure to plan to spend time enjoying Stormalong Bay, which is arguably THE best pool in all of Walt Disney World Resort! My family and I LOVE the waterslide and the lazy river! While you're enjoying your break from the heat at the pool, I MUST recommend renting one of the Poolside Cabanas! You have access to privacy, shade, comfy seating, towels, a TV, a ceiling fan, a fridge stocked with complimentary cold beverages, a complimentary fruit tray, and an oh-so-helpful Cast Member attendant to be sure that your needs are met all day long. Cabana days are the BEST days! We enjoy ordering cocktails from our server, picking up a pre-packaged cheese plate from Beach Club Marketplace, and mobile ordering a delicious to-go lunch from Ale & Compass Restaurant to enjoy inside our cabana. BEST. DAY. EVER! You can reserve your cabana 60 days before your arrival date, and while Disney Vacation Club discounts are always subject to change, currently, Members can get a 15% discount on Cabana rentals! If you are a DVC Member, just call DVC Member Services to book with your discount. If you are not a DVC Member, call (407) WDW-PLAY or (407) 939-7529 to reserve your cabana.

    Nikki, I'm wishing you the most magical summer vacation! Please stop by any time with any other vacation planning or DVC questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon,
