Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort
- What's Included
Good things. Nice staff and the rooms are nice. Blue Zoo is great and the bartender with the long hair is very nice and knows the menu very well. There are no "Do not disturb signs" that we were aware of. I saw a poor bellman get yelled at for delivering luggage to a lady in the shower. I felt bad because it wasn't his fault, there are no signs. The next morning I heard a man get grumpy with housekeeping because she opened the door and he had a late checkout. If there were signs this would not of happened. I feel bad for the staff as they are probably always being put in awkward situations. Also the pool towels are small and ragged. Updates are going to be good and much needed. At the pool there was junk including small tables, garbage and wet skirted tables around the pool that just looked trashy in the morning when we went.
The Disney Dolphin resort is a great choice for a family vacation! We went for the 4th of July last year. There is so much to do on location that you don't need Disney tickets.My children didn't want to leave. They have it all, entertainment, Dj, waterslide, Snowballs and waterfalls by the pool. A blowup water slide, games, paddle boats, game room, many restaurants and access to the Disney swan also. They have a grotto under theWaterfall with lawn chairs to relax on.Looking forward to visiting again soon! It's located on Disney property so you have the perks of a Disney resort, but isn't actually a Disney hotel. I booked through Travelocity and received a decent rate. This is aLuxury resort with many perks.The Disney magic bands are not included with a stay here but you can purchase them in the gift shop on site. They also sell park tickets at customer service on site. The Disney dining plan is also an option. Another perk is that this hotel can sleep a family of five in one room. They provide a roll away bed. This resort is located between Epcot and Holleywood studios. Within view from our hotel window was the castle at magic kingdom from and all of the fireworks from the theme parks nearby. Just a note that parking is charged extra per day, regardless of if you leave or not. It was $35 per day. So when choosing this location, beware that this is an additional fee that is not included in your reservation. The onsite restaurants are also very pricey. We paid $85 for hamburgers and tacos for lunch. Two adults and three children. The room was very clean, staff attentive and very friendly.Disney bus transportation is provided for free or you may choose to take a boat to Epcot from the hotel. I would definitely visit again and highly recommend your stay.
The only place we'll stay in Disney World/Orlando!!!! Staff is always incredibly friendly and extremely helpful. I stay with my family at least twice a year and it's always a blast. With little ones we are able to enjoy the parks during the day and get babysitting service at night to enjoy an adult night out at one of the amazing restaurants right downstairs, peace of mind. Transportation to the parks is quick and easy, we love the ferry. I've hosted a baby shower of 30 people in our suite and the staff went above and beyond helping out, setting up chairs and providing parking for our guests. On our last visit I forgot my wedding rings in my room and they went over the top to make sure I got them back as quick and safely as possible. We look forward to every stay and no matter who we invite to join us, family, friends, clients we never have to worry about the service or accommodations. Looking forward to our next trip in October for the Not So Scary Halloween Parade. JC
We were staying at this hotel as part of a conference but it is an ideal location for exploring the various disney parks in the area. The public areas of the hotel feel quite old and dated but the rooms and especially the bathrooms are modernised. Very helpful staff.
I've stayed here many times and it was always a fun, good time with great service. The very last time were given an upgrade (which we paid for) and the room was inferior. For starters it, the bed appeared to have been slept in and housekeeping had to come up to refresh the room.There was an air conditioning leak that soaked the carpet an gave the room a musty smell. We were eventually offered another room but our stay was basically over at that point.When we went to check out we were overcharged and it took them an hour to try and rectify the situation as the desk had no idea about the upgrade we received at check-in.We wrote to the hotel manager and Starwood manager to get our upgrade (over-charge) fee refunded and we NEVER heard back. Unfortunately we have lost a favored place to stay.
