Loved it
Joshua S. on 02/23/2024

The hotel is conveniently located near Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The boat is a great option for transporting to and from Hollywood Studios and run every 15min. Epcot was about 10min walk to international gateway. Multiple restaurants were in the hotel with varying hours to accommodate most guests, and the lobby bar was easily accessible. Disney services were in the lobby and every time I went by they had a representative present. Great experience for adults, but can be less of an experience for littles who want the Disney experience. No real theming outside of cardboard cutouts in the lobby. For teenagers or individuals who do not need that theming, this is great. The pool is super cool, and there are low-key pools as well if you need a more chill experience.

You’ll get All of the Best amenities

You’ll be pleasantly surprised at all this Walt Disney World’s Most Preferred Sister-Property resort has to offer. This is the Only Non-Disney hotel where you’ll get All of the Best amenities usually reserved for Deluxe Disney property guests (even a 10,000 sq ft Spa!), but for about half the price! You can’t beat access to the Extended Evening Hours (2 extra hours in the theme park after the parks close to regular park guests, as well as the half an hour early entrance every day as well). You can’t beat this location! Literally in the heart of everything Walt Disney World has to offer. Within easy walking distance of 3 of Disney World’s favorite Deluxe properties: the Yacht Club, Boardwalk, and Beach Club resorts - where we could easily walk to and enjoy their additional dining and shopping options as well. Loved stepping onto the Disney boat transportation just steps from our hotel’s pool area - such a Fun way to get to Hollywood Studios and Epcot theme parks! I Loved the shared pool and common resort area, as well as shared restaurant options (23 in Total including Fine Dining as well as Quick-service “Buffeteria” options) between the Swan and Dolphin resorts. Their pool just feels like the Funnest party Ever all day long! Especially loved the massive Waterfall feature coming down into the pool, and definitely appreciate being able to watch the Epcot Fireworks from the pool area as well - So much Fun! Loved that they offered pool side activities, ping pong table, pool table, playground, and hammock to relax in under a palm tree. If you love the ocean then you’ll love the cute theming of Water and Coral at this resort

I stayed here years ago when I was a child visiting WDW. So fun to bring my family there and have them experience it. Felt like such a good value. Received the Disney extras, but paid significantly less.

We had never stayed here before, but we will definetly be staying here again. We loved that it had a shuttle to the parks, and we loved being so close to Disney Springs. The water taxi was fun too! Highly Recommend.

We loved staying at the Dolphin on our last trip to Disney World. We wanted to stay close to Disney Springs, and we are so happy that we stayed here. It was perfect for our family and I would stay here again.
