We recently arranged for our basketball team and parents to stay at the Swan and Dolphin and it far surpassed our expectations - even for a Disney property! From our first encounter with Nicole - a group sales rep - to working with Jerome, our amazing group coordinator and all the wonderful people in between, it was truly a pleasure!... More

Noisey, tacky. Might have been nice in the 80s but has not stood the test of time and really is at best a 2 star hotel. The pool is endless concrete and little shade. Elevators smell. Did not feel like I was on vacation at this hotel. Cant use magical express bus and disneyworld desk in hotel gave us wrong... More

I brought my two young children to stay here for two nights while visiting Walt Disney World. The property is enormous and beautiful. Everything is in pristine condition. The valet service is easy and the valets are extremely accommodating. The check in procedure is simple and quick. The front desk staff are also extremely accommodating and friendly. The rooms are...

The Dolphin is a very convenient hotel if you are going to Epcot or Hollywood Studios! A short boat ride takes you to either. You can also walk. We did one night when there was lightening and the boats weren't running. Not a bad walk at all. You can also go to the Boardwalk although we didn't. There are complimentary... More

The Dolphin and Swan are magical places to stay when visiting the Magic Kingdom. I am an annual pass holder and we stay at the Swan and Dolphin when we travel to the parks. We were at the Dolphin this time but actually spent most of our time at the hotel by the pool, etc. We love this property and... More

I'm a seasoned traveler to Disney , I have been about 30+ times. The Swan is a great place to stay if you are looking for close boat travel to Epcot or Hollywood Studios. Rooms and bathrooms clean, beautiful grounds and you can literally walk to the Boardwalk. Something to think about if you are a nurse, teacher, or military... More

Located at Epcot area close by to the Boardwalk entertainment area, Epcot side entrance (close to England at the showcase) and Disney Hollywood Studios. You can take a walk to both theme parks or use the boats for transportation. Initially designed as a Luxury WDW Hotel, now many ears later is not so "luxury" its hosted by Westin. I stayed... More

First let me say my husband and I love visiting Disney World. We know it is crowded and hectic and very hot in the summer months. But we love it and don't mind any of that. We visit about every two to three years. We chose this hotel because of its location close to the Boardwalk and easy access to... More

I had a conference next door on Disney yacht club, but they were booked so I stayed at the Dolphin. Looks like it needs some renovations and is very noisy inside the room, specially with kids running on hallways or teenagers roaming at all hours of the night. Walls are very thin and not sound proofed. Doors slam all the... More
