Thanks. Wasn't sure if the 180 plus 10 was associated with the DDP or an on-property benefit like EMH.

Just the 180, day by day.

My understanding is that youncan still make reservations at the Disney parks and resorts 180 days out but not for the full 10 days. Most likely you will have to call back each day unless you get a very cooperative CM.

The 180 days in advance or the 180 + 10 have never been very important to us, but I think your post helped me understand the purpose of the +10. I always assumed the 180 + 10 was essentially letting people staying at a Disney resort book 190 days in advance. But if I'm reading your post correctly at 180 days mark you can book up to 10 days worth of reservations for your vacation? If that's the case, the +10 part makes more sense and is more useful than I imagined.

Glad I could help! Yes you got it! Those staying on Disney property can book all their days at once -180 days out.

Swan has queen, Dolphin has double+, supposedly a little larger than double not quite a queen. We have a queen at home and don't really notice a difference at the Dolphin.

Swan has queens-Dolphin has doubles. They are a little bigger than your regular double at home. Don't remember what they are called.

Does anyone know it the TVs have accessible/usable HDMI ports? Working on my items to bring list and trying to figure out if I want to bring an Hdmi cable to view photos/video I shoot.
