robin m
i been looking on disney website andi have a few questions about the disney dolphin resort. i have been teying to do research on what is available with this resort. after reading reviews it seems alot of the perks i have come to enjoy are not available. First there is no disney magic bus available. This would mean i would need to rent a car. When i was looking on the site i thought parking was complementary with this hotel. I believe so e some said it was $20 a night extra. My secong problem is is there dinning with this hotel if i choose to puchase it. Third I believe in my research it said you get a magic band for tour room key and are able to purchase in park and send back to room. If you do not get band than how do you reserve all you fast passes. Finally if I am not getting disney perks how do you canel your reservation? thank you in advance for tour help

Sadly there is not a simple answer. The cost depends on the number of days and the number of parks you want to visit. You can also get tickets from other than Disney especially if you also want to visit Universal. You... More
