An Epcot Gem

There are loads of hotels that one could stay when visiting Walt Disney World but I am glad that I have picked Dolphin. The room is adequately sized with all the amenities and it’s a short stroll via the boardwalk to a side entrance to Epcot. Alternatively you can catch a water taxi to Epcot as well and there is another taxi that brings you to Disney Hollywood studios. Between the Dolphin and Swan which is situated side by side I prefer the Dolphin for its massive atrium with the check in area, massive bar and an eatery. There are also plenty of dining options. Being a Disney Hotel you can catch the fireworks before the park closes and board the last water taxi back to the hotel - super convenient. There are also shuttle services to the other 2 parks - magic kingdom and animal kingdom. Highly recommended and reasonably priced.

Bad start and ending, but the middle was great!

We arrived early and knew we could not get to our room. We were told that since we were gold members (the Dolphin is owned by Sheraton) we were to get an upgrade to a room with a balcony. And since we were celebrating our anniversary we got drink coupons. Great! We returned to get into our room and was told to take the elevator which we did. I guess it was our fault that we assumed the floor but there is a difference between the 11th floor with the balconies and floor one in the basement with no balcony. Once we figured out where we belonged, we opened the door to our room to find the toilet running. Also, the air conditioner could not be turned down below 72. We had to get maintenance. Also, our alarm clock was an hour off and could not be changed (believe me we tried but there was no way to change it) We had to get a replacement. From then on it was great. Being on floor 1 is actually convenient. You walk right out to get the boats to Epcot and Hollywood studios. The escalator was right there to take you to the buses. Also, the Picabu Buffeteria was around the corner for breakfast. Everyone in Picabu were wonderful and helpful. Then it was our last day. We asked for a late checkout (4 pm) when we booked since we had a late flight. No problem. We even verified with the front desk the day before so we could get a full day in the parks. Again, no problem. We were standing in line for a ride at 9am and got an email saying we had to check out by 11. I called and was told no one gets a 4 pm checkout. After the ride was over we went back to the hotel and spoke to the front desk. Why were okayed the day before but now had to check out. Again, no one gets a 4 pm check out. They are booked up and we had to get out of our room. I am not sure if we will stay here again. We enjoyed the convenience and most of the staff, but I just do not like being lied to...

really nice place

we've been to Disney so many times and see the dolphin. Finally we stayed there during the food and wine festival in Epcot. The pool area is amazing and they have great restaurants inside the hotel. its right by Epcot and Hollywood studios you can walk to both or take the boat. we loved the bar in the lobby. it really rocks at night and they have live music on some nights

Worst beds in the history of the world

We go to Disney about every 2 months. We’ve stayed many times over the years at both the dolphin and swan. This trip, for my birthday was by far the worst. The beds were hard as an actual rock as were the pillows. There was hair on the shampoo housekeeping left us upon arrival. Furthermore, our room was not ready at the 3pm check in time and when I asked why not- I was told that really check in only began at 3pm. And that could last from 3-5pm or even longer. I will likely avoid the dolphin and the swan for further tripsWe
