    Can you purchase the dining plan & do you receive magic bands if you stay at The Swan?

    Hi Allison!

    The Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is a great place to stay to enjoy a vacation to visit Mickey and friends. My family and I stayed there a few years ago and we had a wonderful trip! The hotel is located in a perfect location, right off of the Disney BoardWalk, making it's easy to get to both Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Plus, you can use the Walt Disney World complimentary resort transportation buses to get to the other theme parks and Disney Springs!

    While the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel is located on Walt Disney World Resort property, it is not one of the official Disney Resort hotels. Unfortunately, Disney dining plans must be purchased in conjunction with a stay at a Disney Resort hotel, so you are not able to add a dining plan to your stay at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel. Complimentary MagicBands are one of the amenities of staying at a Disney Resort hotel, but you will not receive complimentary MagicBands when staying at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel.

    However, you do have the option of purchasing MagicBands for your vacation online in advance of your trip or at one of the shops at Walt Disney World Resort. MagicBands are a great addition to your trip because they will give you access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand!

    Let us know if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
