To start with, this is a disney world resort hotel. It is about 18 years old. The hotel facilities still look nice and are well maintained. Disney created this hotel for conventions and such gatherings more than anything else. But disney did not add meaningful food venues to these resort hotels, wether swan or dolphin. The food experience in both... More

Just got back from a conference at the Dolphin. They say the devil is in the details, and this hotel seems to have thought of almost everything. Check in was a breeze, fresh cucumber and lemon water upon our arrival. Stayed in one of the renovated rooms and the bed was almost reason enough not to leave the room. Most... More

Make sure to ask for views of the fireworks when you check in especially if your travel plans don't include actually going into the parks in the evening. I got to see several going off a little past 9pm from my room on the first night of my stay which reminded of the magic as far as work travel is... More

When we booked our holiday through Thomson we were promised a room with a balcony, and we were massively disappointed when we found this was not the case. I sent an email directly to The Dolphin to ask if there was any chance we could upgrade to a room with a balcony, and Guest Relations Advisor Beth emailed us straight... More

I was here all week for a conference. I stayed at the Swan and the conference was at the Dolphin. Everything was great with the Swan. Check in was easy. The lobby and all common areas are beautiful. Our room was clean and comfortable. The conference I attended was huge - I believe just shy of 4000 people. The Dolphin... More

If you are travelling with kids and want to stay at a Disney Resort then look at the Beach Club, Yacht Club or Boardwalk. The Swan and Dolphin are not Disney hotels and you will notice immediately upon check in. There is boat transportation service to Epcot but if you have little ones then staying at a Disney Magic Kingdom... More

The Swan and Dolphin hotels are my favorite "hidden gem" hotels when my husband and I want a quick trip to Disney world with all the perks of a Disney hotel - but without the price. First of all the location is excellent - in the Disney Boardwalk area - a short walk from the back entrance of Epcot World... More

We stayed at the Swan as part of a business trip (with some Disney on the side). The hotel is beautiful, well-decorated and comfortable. The staff was wonderful, and the location is amazing - close to the Boardwalk, dozens of restaurants, and free transportation to the parks (bus or boat, depending). Only a couple of cautions -- if you are... More

Traveling as a party of 7 from September 4th - 18th, this was the second stay for my wife & I in the Dolphin. Hotel is fantastically situated allowing you to walk to the Boardwalk in about 5 mins, Epcot in approximately 10-15 mins or Hollywood studios in 20 mins. There are also water taxis which run from the bridge... More
