If you don't care about disney themed rooms this hotel is a great price for a Disney stay. It's more of a conference center hotel but what's it matter if you are going to be gone all day at the parks? Pool is kind of a long walk but is awesome. Close to EVERYTHING within walk or bus distance. Busses... More

We used all of the restaurants and they were all great, we mainly used the one at the swan hotel that has the disney characters visiting your table for photo's etc, it is a little more expensive, but...

Stayed there during August, and hid my ipad in a dresser drawer with lots of stuff placed atop, to camouflage. Apparently someone tampered with my iP d by trying to remove the keyboard which damaged the keyboard and the iPad screen. When I returned to the hotel around 11:00pm at night, and saw such, I immediately advised the front desk.... More

We stayed at the Dolphin and were so happy with everything...an incredibly clean and spacious room, wonderful service wherever you go, conveniently located. Even the other guests are friendly which is hard to find sometimes. We would definitely stay here again and have been so pleased with everything while here. Just can't say enough good things about them!

We stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort with our two children aged 11 and 9 years during our visit to Orlando as part of our pan-US tour in August 2012. Although the resort was five-star quality with good service, we realized that it was more relevant for those who wanted to enjoy the nearby parks; as... More

While visiting I received an ALS Ice Bucket challenge. I did not know how I was going to do it. I talked to Paul Coulter the manager and he put together a bucket, ice and even went out to help me video. The whole staff were so helpful the whole time I was here. Wonderful rooms and a great resort!
