    If you stay at Disney Swan or Dolphin - do you benefit from accessing individual lightning lanes at 7am on the morning of checkout and can you also benefit from accessing the parks early?

    Welcome to planDisney, Pamela! Thanks so much for sending us this question! It's so exciting to see that you will be vacationing at The Most Magical Place on Earth in less than three months! 

    Our family just stayed at Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel last month for a week! If you have never stayed at this beautiful resort, you're going to love it! I'm happy to share that whether you are staying at the Dolphin or the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, you will have the benefit of many amenities that are also available to other Disney Resorts Collection Hotel guests! You can purchase and access Genie+, including Individual Lightning Lanes Experiences, and Early Theme Park Entry on the morning of your check out because you are still a hotel guest as of 7:00 a.m. I would recommend linking your Swan or Dolphin hotel reservation number in your My Disney Experience account to ensure your access to these magical benefits.

    One of the things I love about this resort is the convenient proximity to EPCOT and the easy entry into World Showcase! You can take the complimentary water transportation or it's a short scenic walk past Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts. I noticed that your visit aligns with the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival! This is my favorite festival because of the variety of experiences! There's great food, drinks, music, and amazing topiary displays!  

    There's also so much to see and do during The World's Most Magical Celebration, so be sure to check out what's happening as you are planning! I know your vacation will be practically perfect in every way!

    Happy Planning!
