I received an email after I made the reservation. I am also a Starwood member. You can use your reservation number or Starwood number to log in and check the reservation from the link in the email.

The Weston Link, that is says click to change
(staying at the Swan)

And I had forgotten to put my SPG number in when I made this reservation, so it is not showing up on my SPG account, but it is there when I click from the email.

Mine has a link to log in to my account. I would call and add your SPG number, that way you are sure to get credit. And will flag you as a member the day of check in.

It would look quite different right now - the daily afternoon thunder storm has hit.

Thanks, I did check the Weston link in my email. No pint in adding my SPG number I can't get credit when staying employee rates. That is why I didn't bother putting it in when I made it.

I am good with what ever we get, won't be spending much time in the room anyways.

Stupid question, but how long does it usually take for the Dolphin to process the deposit? I made the reservation last Monday and it hadn't hit my account so I called back today. They told me they would process it a couple of hours ago, but it's still not showing up in my bank transactions, pending or otherwise. I did receive the email confirmation, both times I called, but I'm concerned that without the deposit actually being made they will cancel it and I'll arrive there in October to find I have no room. Should I be concerned?

I made my reservation on 5/15; deposit didn't go through until 5/28 - crazy slow!

Another town car warning

I've posted before about the Dolphin (and Swan) propensity to put you into a town car rather than a taxi. Today we decided to just go with it and take the town car. We were headed to the Grand Floridian from the Dolphin. When I asked for a car to the GF they warned me that the town car would cost $19. I was ok with that and actually pleased that they warned me.

Unfortunately they didn't seem to tell the driver of the town car that it was supposed to be $19. When we got to the GF he wanted $30. I said no way, its supposed to be $19. He said its $30 because it goes according to zone. He also said it would have been $19 to the MK (which is where we were headed anyway). I pointed out we hadn't even gotten that far so it couldn't be $30. We went back and forth a couple of times and I was about to tell him to call his dispatcher when he finally said, OK, pay what you want. I paid him the $19 (and a $3 tip, I don't know why).

So again, be careful about town cars from the Swolphin.

That's just awful. I do know on occasion I've gotten some with less than cordial attitudes (especially upon learning I was only going to another WDW property), but I've never been charged more than $18 (I guess it's gone up $1).

Thanks for the warning. (I almost think it might be worth it to walk over to YC and get a taxi! )
