    I have a question about guests that stay at the Dolphin or the Swan Disney resorts. Do these guests get to order their MagicBands ahead of time (free of charge) through Disney.com just like everyone else that stay at the other official Disney resorts?

    Hi, Tiffany!

    The location of the Swan and Dolphin Resorts is practically perfect. You are just a quick boat ride from Disney's Hollywood Studios or Epcot. You may even choose to walk to these parks, or just take a stroll around the BoardWalk. 

    The Swan and Dolphin are not actually Disney-owned hotels. Guests who stay here do not receive all the benefits that are given to Disney Resort hotel guests. MagicBands, while available for purchase, are not complimentary to Swan and Dolphin guests. Other benefits, such as Disney's Magical Express, are also not included. 

    There are some benefits given to Swan and Dolphin guests that are similar to those given to Disney Resort hotel guests: Use of Disney transportation, booking FastPass+ 60 days in advance, Extra Magic Hours, complimentary theme park parking (fee applies to park at Swan and Dolphin parking lots), and complimentary package delivery for items purchased in theme parks. 

    If you have resort specific questions, I suggest you give a call to the Swan and Dolphin and speak to a reservationist. He/she can explain all the benefits available to you, and any additional fees (parking, resort fees) so you do not have any surprises upon arrival. 

    Enjoy your stay!
