    Good morning , I have a question regarding staying at Disney's Dolphin Resort. Can I use Magical Express pickup at MCO to get me to resort? Will I get the use of magic bands and My Disney Experoence? Am I able to use EMH at parks? Thank you.

    Hi, Ellen!  Since it looks like any dreams of having a white Christmas up here in Jersey are fading away with this warm weather, it's a great time to be thinking about a vacation at Walt Disney World.

    The Swan and Dolphin resorts are both eligible for many of the benefits that you would receive at a Walt Disney World resort hotel.  You can register for a My Disney Experience account on the official Walt Disney World website.  Click the link in the upper right side corner to create your account.

    You will also be able to take advantage of the Extra Magic Hours offered to other resort guests.  That will give you some bonus time in the parks with shorter lines and lighter crowds.

    The Dolphin still uses a key card system, however, you can purchase a Magic Band at many of the shops in the parks and resorts throughout Walt Disney World.  The bands can be linked to your theme park passes, and you can then use them for FastPass+ reservations and theme park admission.

    Unfortunately, Disney's Magical Express does not offer service to the Swan and Dolphin resorts.  There are many other airport transfer options in the area, or you can use a regular taxi to get you to your resort.

    Have a wonderful time on your upcoming vacation.
