    Can you use magic bands at the Swan Hotel? Does this hotel qualify for water park entry on the day you arrive?!

    Hiya Elizabeth and welcome back to planDisney. It is so nice to see you again with another enchanted question for us to help you plan your April 2025 Disney adventure.

    Sometimes I wonder whether the Walt Disney World Swan should be my go-to Resort hotel over Disney Resorts Collection hotels because we have stayed there so many times. It is in an ideal location adjacent to Disney's BoardWalk where my family loves to watch the BoardWalk Buskers' entertainment in the early evening on select nights.

    Disney MagicBands does not work at the Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin, or Dolphin Reserve hotels. You may still use them for theme admission and Lightning Lane entrances but charging food and merchandise to your Resort folio, using your Disney MagicBand to enter your room, and check-in day admission to the Disney Water Park and many others are benefits only for Guests of Disney Resorts Collection Hotels Guests.

    Remember, just because you are staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Resort does not mean you are unable to visit the Disney Water Park. You can still purchase theme park ticket add-on options such as the Park Hopper Plus Option and Water Parks and Sports Option or a separate Water Park ticket to have a splashtastic time.

    Every trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth has surprises and delights. Be sure to check out Fantasia Gardens and Fairways Miniature Golf, right next door to the Walt Disney World Swan Resort for a bit of nostalgia that most Guests overlook.

    Elizabeth, please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions or for other Disney vacation planning tips.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
