    I am staying at the Swan and Dolphin, have always used disney owned hotels in the past, can you tell me if the magical express goes there, also can I book a dining plan if staying there, and do disney buses take you to the parks. Thanks,

    Hi Shane!

    The Swan and Dolphin are beautiful hotels and they have a great location; you can often find special discounts for rooms there, especially if you are a government employee, a teacher, or a nurse.  Unfortunately, however, they are independent hotels and not owned and operated by Disney.  That means there's no Disney Magical Express to get you to and from the airport, and you can't sign up for a Disney Dining Plan.  However, the Swan and Dolphin are served by Disney buses and a boat that runs between Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot.  You can also walk to both parks, though it's a long walk (on the order of 15 to 20 minutes depending on your speed).

    Hope this helps!  Write back with more questions!
