Great hotelVery friendly and helpful atmosphere. Conference help was really good and could redirect for different issues.Restaurants a bit pricey.Food generally really good , drinks good too. Wait staff is very friendly and attentive and always smiling. Would be nice to have more salad and fresh fruit options throughout the dayBuying the refillable cup is a great and economical option

Huge hotel

I must say I had some mixed feelings when I went home after staying here. In total, this is a good experience, but you need a thick wallet here. This is basically a huge machinery working well, with a lot of offers at the hotel. If you are here to visit Disney parks, you don't need to travel anywhere, basically. The only, minor negative thing is the price on different things. I mean...breakfast for $26.99 pr day in one of the restaurants are a bit feisty. Room rates are also high, but to be fair to the hotel; It's big, it's nice, it's a mean machine made for you too enjoy your stay!You have everything you need in and around the hotel. You can eat inside or outside. You can enjoy the boardwalk and walk to the Epcot, get a free boat ride,or reach every Disney park by bus easily.I can't do anything else but recommend this place. I'm fascinated with how the hotel is run and would love to go back. The atmosphere is nice although there is a lot of people in the same place. There were rarely queues and always a place to sit down.And the beds....those are some GREAT beds! I haven't slept that good in a while ;)

Nice stay

This was for a local getaway (we live near Disney) and didn't do anything but enjoy the property. Originally thought I was reserved for the Swan but it was the Dolphin instead (within walking distance). Received a good deal on one of those sites... The Swan appeared to be smaller, more intimate and slightly higher scale than the Dolphin although both properties seemed very similar. The Dolphin rooms and bathrooms are on the small side. Probably a 1980's property... My bathroom in particular had dirty grout and looked to be in need of remodel. The beds were extremely comfortable. The grounds were very spacious and pools were nice. The restaurant (breakfast buffet) was very good as well.

My Family Loved this Hotel!

We just returned from a week, actually five nights, staying in the Dolphin side of this hotel. We absolutely loved this hotel. The location was perfect with the ability to walk or take the boat to Hollywood Studios and Epcot (we did each by the way). The convenience to those two parks cannot be overstated. Even when we went to the Magic and Animal Kingdoms the bus shuttle service was excellent as well. We had a junior suite which was perfect for our family of 4. The decor and design of the room was excellent and the beds were extremely comfortable. We also ate at several of the restaurants in the hotel and they were all great. The service at The Fountain was very slow but the food was excellent. Picabu was great as well. We had breakfast every morning at Fresh downstairs! Loved this place! I would also like to say that Patty Alvarez at the front MADE our stay. Seeing her smiling face every morning was fabulous and she went above and beyond her duties to make me and my family comfortable and happy with our stay. Do whatever you can not to lose Patty...she is one in a million!!!As you can tell we loved this place and cannot wait to go back. Thank you!

Worst hotel experience you could imagine!

With HIGH expectations we booked our stay at Disneys DOLPHIN resort hotel. It started out with our room not being ready at the advertised check-in time. No big deal right? That's what we thought. 2 HOURS LATER..... still not ready. Asked if we could just cancel the reservation.... "sure!" Was the answer. It will just cost you a cancellation fee equal to an entire night stay($350)... remember we hadn't even gotten through check-in yet. Asked to see the manager and he was VERY UNPLEASANT. for some unknown reason our room was MAGICALLY now available immediately. WHATEVER!!! We will NEVER stay at a DISNEY resort again. Oh, did I mention that our room was also disgustingly dirty? IT WAS!
