We love the Dophin and are looking forward to our next visit but I do think it would be helpful to warn others that the S&D are NOT part of the 10+ perk for WDW Dining that other resort guest have. We normally stay for 9 nights so have to call every morning for 10 mornings to get all our dining reservations and it was difficult to get the harder to get reservations over the holiday's such as Easter and Thanksgiving.

WOW...AWESOME If I only had that luck! Was it two rooms connecting? East or West wing? You wouldn't happen to have any pics, ?

The Preferred Plus is the basic level of SPG that you get when you sign up for a SPG account via AAA. It's kind of like a light version of SPG Gold. It includes the "upgrade to a preferred room" benefit and 4pm late checkout (resorts like Swan/Dolphin don't always have this benefit available) that Gold has, but you only accrue 2 SPG points/$ spent instead of Gold's 3 SPG points/$.

anbouk - it was in the east wing:





This was the wing -6th floor

It was one room not adjoining rooms.

I know this is last minute, but I just found it. If anyone's traveling to a Starwood hotel by 4/30/09, here's an "spg" extra points promo:

But you have to sign up by today, 4/15/09!

That's funny. You're more on top of things than you realize!

Thanks - It's hard to believe we'll be back in 5 days!

Did I tell you - there's a Girls Trip in the works for Nov. 13-16....3 other DIS-ers from PA are going & I'm trying to work it in my schedule...any chance you could join us? Of course I'd be staying at The Dolphin (if there's any rooms left!)

No, you didn't tell me! There's a good chance I'll be itching for another trip by November...and girls only sounds great! Keep me posted.

Has SingingMom been around here, lately? She sure is missed! I bet she has a trip planned to her beloved Dolphin, soon!

A studio suite at the Swan (aka "Deluxe Alcove") is one oversized room: http://www.swandolphin.com/accommoda...xe_alcove.html,

I was actually joking in my above posts about rooms being left - when I check through spg.com there are NO ROOMS AVAILABLE for my dates. Argh!! It's a long way off though...I'll keep checking...this happened once before & the rooms literally opened up 2 weeks before I went. Whew.

Do you remember what classification of suite this room was? We were upgraded to this room from a standard room as Starwood members. What was your room number? I'd love to be able to request this room for our 2009 Christmas stay.

Thanks....and how cute are your girls!!!!!!

Elaine... I don't remember off the top of my head the name/classification of the suite,but it's part of a 2 bedroom room suite. My mother stayed in the other adjoining room. I'll look up the room # & send it to you.

I think that is an Executive Suite at the Dolphin. We had all 3 rooms at Thanksgiving 2007 for my family of 5 and my in-laws. In Nov. 2001, we had two of the three rooms, and it was called a Hospitality Suite.http://www.swandolphin.com/accommoda..._Executive.gif. The middle room is the Parlor.
