    Do the Swan and Dolphin hotels have pin trading? What about smores/campfires at night?

    Hi there Kelly, and welcome BACK to planDisney! It's great to see a fellow Marylander here.

    My family and I have stayed at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel and Walt Disney World Swan Hotel several times. As teachers, my husband and I love to take advantage of special rates sometimes available to educators, and you can't beat the location, just steps away from EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. While it's not officially part of the Disney Resorts Collection, and you won't be able to do things like charge purchases to your resort or use a MagicBand to unlock your hotel room door, I think you'll enjoy your time here. 

    Pin trading is so much fun, and I'm so glad it's part of our world again! You won't encounter any pin-wearing or trading Cast Members at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel or Walt Disney World Swan Hotel, so if you're looking to trade, I recommend strolling over to Disney's BoardWalk. Stop by Disney's Character Carnival or Screen Door General Store to browse the newest merchandise and check out Cast Members' pins. 

    Recreation activities are offered at both hotels, so be sure to pick up a schedule from the front desk upon check-in. I'm happy to report that a nightly campfire does take place here, and on my last stay, we received a s'mores kit in our room upon arrival. What a sweet surprise! 

    I hope this is helpful as you count down the months and weeks until your spring getaway, Kelly. The EPCOT Resort Area is one of my favorite places in Walt Disney World, and I know you'll have a magical stay here. Thanks for coming to see us at planDisney, and if there's anything else we can do before your adventure begins, don't hesitate to reach out again. With the 50th-anniversary celebration underway, there's a lot of new things to zip-a-dee-do and experience on your vacation!

    Wishing you a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
