The Swan and Dolphin versus Disney Properties

Currently there are no dining plans and no date for when they will come back. The European deal for next year is a gift card that can be used for food no dining plan options so it may be quite a while until they come back
We have the quick service dp

Have you checked your reservation on MDE?

Disney cancelled all dining plans at re-opening and converted packages with them to just room and tickets. I assumed they would let people know that by email but maybe not.

But to answer the question, no you canā€™t use DP credits at the S&D, nor can you charge to your room at any of the S&D restaurants if you are staying at a WDW resort.

I would if I was you. Also dining reservations have gotten much harder to get and qs must for the most part be ordered on the app. Some hours in advance

Who, your travel agent?

No QS is walk-up right now - you have to order via the app. And the recommendation is that you order at least an hour in advance, especially if you want to eat during the lunch hours. Because you'll be given an estimated time that your meal will be ready to pick up.

My last trip was in January, which wasn't as busy as it is right now. I had to wait nearly 30 minutes to get a hotdog at Fairfax Fare in Hollywood Studios. Your order is assigned a number and you will receive a notification when it is ready for pickup.

Which, I understand, is a Disney authorized travel agency. And thus should know that you can't purchase a Disney Dining Plan right now and that ALL QS restaurants are mobile oder.

The QS dining card Disney offers for affiliated hotels isn't the same as a DDP.

No
Does anyone know if their mask policy has changed as of late? I know all Marriottā€™s in the US are mask free but didnā€™t know if that was the case here.

No using any dining plan at Dolphin??
No, if it ever comes back. You can't charge to your room using a magic band, either.

S&D don't use Disney busses anymore, either. The place that is the biggest hassle is MK, where you're dropped off at the TTC, not the MK bus station.

Yes...if dropped at TTC you will monorail or boat for the last leg to MK. You have two other options...if you can talk your way past the guard, you can have an Uber drop you off at either Contemporary or Grand Floridian and walk. We did the GF, just to check out the new walkway. You can also walk over to Boardwalk or Yacht/Beach and use their buses. I like the Swan and Dolphin, but the bus service there made Disney transportation look like a private limo by comparison. We weren't really trying to game the system, but we just couldn't wait any longer for the bus. This was in January, so maybe it has gotten better.
