    Planning a trip to WDW and a stay at the Swan. 1. Does the resort fee include parking? 2. Are the Early Morning Entry and the Extended Evening hours valid on check-in and check-out days?

    Hi Elisa! Welcome back to planDisney!

    The Walt Disney World Swan, Dolphin and Swan Reserve are wonderful choices when you want to be as close as possible to the magic of Walt Disney World Resort! My family and I have stayed here many times over the years and always enjoy having the ability to easily walk to Disney Resorts Collection hotels like Disney's Yacht Club Resort and Disney's Beach Club Resort and to Disney's BoardWalk.  Plus, there's nothing better than staying out for EPCOT's fireworks show, Harmonious, and being able to stroll "home" at your leisure.  To me, that is Disney perfection!

    When you stay at the Walt Disney World Swan you're lucky enough to receive many of the same benefits as Guests who stay in a Disney Resort. From Early Theme Park Entry to Extended Evening Theme Park Hours, to being able to purchase your first Individual Lightning Lane selection right at 7 a.m., you'll find that the Swan is included in them all!  According to the Walt Disney World Swan website, Standard Theme Park Parking is included with your stay at the Swan, Dolphin or Swan Reserve, so if you're planning on driving to the Parks, you're in luck!  Overnight parking at the Resort itself is subject to a nightly fee for both self and valet parking.  The parking fee and the Resort fee are two separate charges.  

    On a happier note, you'll find that the magical benefits of Early Theme Park Entry and Extended Evening Theme Park hours are available on both the day you check in as well as the day you check out of the Resort.  Just like Cinderella, your magic ends at midnight, so take advantage of it while you can! I've found that heading to the Parks early and staying out late (maybe with a nap in between!) is a great way to check out all your favorite rides and attractions with shorter wait times. 

    Enjoy every moment of your stay!

Hi All, I'm Ashley! From the very beginning Walt Disney World Resort has always been a part of my life. As a child I excitedly helped to plan family trips, as a young adult I planned our "happily ever after" right on Disney property, and now I'm lucky enough to plan magical vacations for my three incredible children. When we're not taking in the enchanting experiences of the parks, we're home in Massachusetts, probably planning our next trip! Learn More About Ashley
