    My family and I will be staying at Walt Disney Swan and Dolphin at the end of May. Can we add a dinning plan? And we add the Disney wrist bands too? Can we take the Disney shuttle from and to the airport or find our own? Thank you

    Hello, Jessica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your family is going to LOVE staying at the Walt Disney World Swan or Dolphin Hotel! This beautiful hotel is perfectly located in the Disney's Boardwalk area, so you are able to walk (or ride a boat) to Epcot or Disney's Hollywood Studios! How cool is that?!

    I want to let you know that you are not allowed to add the Disney Dining Package when you stay at the Walt Disney World Swan or Dolphin Hotel. However, you are allowed to make your Disney Dining reservations 180-days in advance! You can make your reservations online, or you can call (407) WDW-DINE and speak to a very helpful Cast Member.

    You are allowed to use the Disney MagicBands; however, they will not be given to you at check-in. You may purchase Disney MagicBands at the Disney Gift Shop located inside the hotel. NOTE: You will not be able to use your MagicBand for charging privileges or for your room key.

    Disney's Magical Express will not be available to transport your family to your hotel; however, I am very excited to inform you that you will be able to use Disney transportation from the hotel to all Disney Theme Parks!

    If you have other questions, please let us know!

    Have a MAGICAL day!
