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

This place is A-MAZING!!! We went up for a quick one night stay and I wish we would have stayed longer!! The resort is located within a few minutes of the Boardwalk and a quick walk to Epcot. The room was great and we even had a bird's eye view of the nightly fireworks, which was a great treat! Bar... More

My family and I have stayed at the Dolphin many times and we have never been disappointed, everything is so close, you have the choice of visiting the parks via the water boat, use the hotel bus or walk. The rooms are well equipped and the beds are sooooo comfortable, everything is spotlessly clean and the staff will do all... 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!

I booked this hotel as a base to visit the Disney theme parks. It was better located than I had imagined, two of the parks being a 5 min boat ride away with boats running every 10 min. The other 2 parks and 2 water parks were a short bus ride away and whilst not as convenient as the boat,... More

Am a frequent business traveler and had a wonderful family vacation stay at Walt Disney Swan. Staff was outstanding and the room was comfortable. It was a pleasure to come back to a wonderful fresh clean room each day. Pool area was nice and enjoyed having access to amenities at the Dolphin as well. Loved the view of park fireworks... More

This place is FANTASTIC. Absolutely gorgeous. Super clean. We booked 8 nights. We had to split our stay between the Dolphin, and the adjacent Swan due to limited room availability, but it worked out fine. Ok, I have to say something negative, or this wouldn't be a realistic review. Cons: Ok, so the room prices are great for what you... More
