I think you still get extra magic hours (im not sure though so you might want to look into it a little more). I do, however, know that you are not able to participate in the Disney Dining Plan.
I'm glad somebody answered that- I was wondering myself.
Trickster might know. I think they have stayed at one of them.
Dreams Really Do Come True
You definitely get extra magic hours.
You won't get things bought in the parks delivered to your room but they can be delivered to the hotel's front desk/ gift shop (can't remember which). And you won't be able to charge any purchases outside your hotel to your room.
You're on the same Disney boat as Yacht/Beach Club and Boardwalk to MGM and EPCOT and you have your own Disney Bus to the other parks.
And you can save a lot of money vs the price of other EPCOT hotels if you can snag one of their discount rates.

The Swan & Dolphin are privately owned and it is therefore as others have said: You can enjoy the Disney Transportation and EMHs, but you can't charge anything back to your room - although you can have items delivered back to the Hotel.

I can't wait to stay in the dolphin for $129.00 for the Florida resident.
I was thinking of staying at the swan and dolphin and was wondering if they provide Magical Express or some sort of transportation to and from the airport.
We stayed at the Dolphin in October for F&W. It is a very nice hotel & we had an awesome view of Epcot. We watched the fireworks from our balcony the first night there. We liked being close to the back entrance to Epcot.
As people have already said -- 90% of the perks (Magic Express, charging privilleges, dining plan) are not available @ Dolphin or Swan.
That said, it is a lovely hotel & a great location!
That's really strange that they wouldn't provide Disney's Magical Express but they provide Disney's transportation to the parks. I guess that was just the deal worked out between Disney and the operators of the Swan and Dolphin.
