I choose to do the "Go Green" stay which meant I did not need my sheets changed every day or new towels. This earned me a card each day worth $5 (by trips end I had $35) and you could use the cards at the bar or any hotel restaurant. Though they still tided up my room each day and... More

I stayed at this hotel for two nights in June of 2015 on a business trip. During my stay, housekeeping never showed up, even though I didn't select their "green" option. My room wasn't ready upon arrival (and no, I wasn't early). I had to check my bags with the bellman and come back later when the room was ready.... More

The hotel is great location and the pools are nice. The rooms are dated and actually had to switch rooms because it the first smelled musty. They were very accommodating and switched us right away. We will give it another try. Just note- it's practical, but would consider it standard.

My fav Disney/yet not Disney place. The pool area reminds me of a Vegas poolside spa. The spa there is the BEST I have ever been to. Teachers and military get great discounts. I have stayed at Polynesian, Boardwalk, and several off property sites. This is the best. You can even see the fireworks from SEVERAL Disney parks.

first the good - great hotel for holding a large conference. The conference facilities are excellent. When I arrived, I explained I had requested a new room with the email that said they "understood" my request. The gentleman checking me in was polite and explained that only the Swan had updated rooms, not the Dolphin, however after a bit of... More

So when you come to Disney you expect to spend $$$. And the Dolphin is no exception, everything is $$$. The rooms at the Dolphin are nicer than the Swan, a bit bigger and our room had a nice view. It is obvious the staff have had decent training ( in fact they train hospitality students). Now the trouble with... More

Great Sheraton Hotel within Disney World. I like this very much since it has beaches, water cycle, 3 pools, 3 hot tubs, about 10 restaurants to eat so you don't need to go out, last but not least, nice view from room with balcony facing the lake. I suggest for brunch, don't miss out Mediteranian Rest...it has fresh juice, cook... More

The staff was phenomenal and so helpful!! Loved the hotel because of the proximity to the parks, the water ferry is a great way to get to Epcot. The restaurants were nice, but overpriced,....but it's Disney!! Would stay here again, along with sooooooooo many tourists!!!

Excellent resort, very nice accommodations, great food and easy transportation connections to all other Disney properties. This was a really great trip and the Golf courses at Disney World are second to none. The only downside of this hotel compared to the "official" Disney properties is that they give free transportation to and from the golf courses at the others.... More

While this isn't a cheap place to stay within Walt Disney World, it offers arguably the best VFM as well as the enormous benefit of being literally in the middle of the action. It is superbly located for all the parks (especially Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios), while also offering nice walks around the Boardwalk area and a superb range... More
