    I am wanting to stay at the Dolphin Resort. I was planning on doing a meal plan but see that when I choose this vacation package it gives me the Dolphin and Swan Hotel package what does that include? Also do I pay for parking at the resort if I drive?

    Hi Lisa!

    The Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin are lovely hotels and they have a great location on Crescent Lake.  They are independently owned, but in the heart of Walt Disney World.  You have access to Extra Magic Hours and are served by Disney transportation (but not Disney's Magical Express to / from the airport) if you stay there.  Unfortunately, however, you are not allowed to purchase a Disney Dining Plan; those plans are reserved for guests staying in a Disney owned and operated hotel.  Guests staying at the Swan and Dolphin do have to pay for parking if they have a car, and there's a mandatory "resort fee" which covers things like a bottle of water, etc.  I recommend calling the Dolphin directly to answer any specific question about the resort and to check on any available discounts.  The Swan and  Dolphin do offer amazing discounts from time to time, especially to government employees and teachers.

    Enjoy planning your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
