    I'm staying at the Dolphin Hotel, but I booked it through a travel portal, not the Disney website. I was told it can't be linked to My Disney Experience. Will I still be able to stay for Extra Magic Hours if they're offered at Epcot?

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Susan, and welcome to planDisney. I am so glad you stopped by to ask us this enchanting question because being able to access Walt Disney World Resort perks is one of the most important aspects of planning your vacation.

    We have stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts many times and are always able to take advantage of the theme park perks associated with our visit. These two hotels along with the Walt Disney World Swan Reserve are included in both Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park Hours. To link your Reservation you will need a compatible code. I suggest you use your confirmation number from the hotel and not the confirmation number from the travel portal. If you do not have a hotel confirmation number then contact the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel directly to speak to the front desk for help. Your reservation will be listed differently with them and they should be able to give you a linkable confirmation number usable for your My Disney Experience account.

    planDisney Pro Tip: There is a walking path from the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resorts to both EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. During your visit, you may want to consider using it instead of the FriendShip Boats if it is a nice day.

    Susan, thank you again for stopping by planDisney. I know you will have an unforgettable vacation. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
