Stayed on other Disney properties, and always come back to the Dolphin. This is trip number four at the Dolphin. Perfect place for a couple (no children) to visit Walt Disney World. It has the charm and character of a Disney property, but less hectic. Great access via boat to Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Even for us out of shape... More

I recently stayed at the Swan for a convention being held at the Dolphin. The properties are adjacent and very convenient, guests are able to use amenities at either hotel. The grounds were beautiful with multiple pools and great restaurants. The water taxi to the parks is between the two properties and the Boardwalk is a very short walking distance,... More

The hotel is HUGE. People everywhere, tons of kids, lobby is enormous, pool area can get a bit rowdy- there is an adult "type" pool, that has louder music, kind of a party feel. The restaurants around the resort are very nice, upscale- albeit expensive. Shuttle service to Disney is convenient. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are... More

I just recently accompanied by husband to a conference at Walt Disney World in Orlando. We stayed at the Swan, where the conference was being held. If I was visiting on vacation I would never stay there again. The rooms have not been updated since they opened the place and Sheraton is saying they plan to renovate, a small consolation... More

Recently stayed at the Dolphin Hotel (9/12-9/14/14). Our room was in the west wing 10th floor. Upon entering the room it was very warm and humid. The room also had strong mold odor. After an hour the room finally cooled down. Mind you we arrived Friday night at round 11:00 PM. The carpets seemed very dirty and the tub had... More

Stayed at the dolphin for 9 nights, unfortunately we experienced a few problems on arrival. A very small room allocated for a family of 4, none of our additional beds were set up, and when we asked for a cot for my 1 yr old they literally dumped a camping bed in the room on its end at the doorway....

This is a beautiful hotel. My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights while I had a conference at the Dolphin (a Sheraton property) Everyone was very nice. This resort has access to Disney's water taxi to Epcot and Hollywood studios, which was a very quick option for those parks. They also have Disney's buss service for the other... More

Me and my family stayed at the dolphin from the 5 to the 7 because we were going to the parks and I booked it with a good price and the options for transportation to the parks seems great to us. Everything in the hotel look great to us even though we barely spend much time on it. I had... More

Excellent location and great service.Yes there are up charges for resort fee and parking however for a comparable on site hotel the price evens out. I would stay there again, not a lot of kids so for a couple it's a good choice,with a very convenient location

we booked a night at the Dolphin property exclusively to get into Animal Kingdom 1 hour early. We arrived at the hotel lobby was okay, room was large and dated. When we go to Disney for the night we usually stay at the Rosen Shingle Creek which is amazing and I can usually get a room for under $100.00. Back... More
