Neighborhood

Ever dreamt of having Walt Disney World right outside your front door? This luxurious resort puts it all within your grasp. Journey into space, learn about conservation with a movie featuring favored Lion King characters and head east or west at the Epcot Center.   

You're also close to Disney's Hollywood Studios where you'll get the opportunity to step onto real movie sets, plus see the Muppets in 3D Vision. From Cinderella's Castle to the whirlwind rides at Blizzard Beach water park, be prepared for complete immersion into the world of Disney.

If you're in town for a business convention, conquer the links with colleagues and connections at the Palm Golf Course.
Hints and Tips
Complementary shuttle rides make every outing comfortable, although it's an easy walk to the attractions too. When the kids or grandkids tell you they need a break from your company, turn them loose at one of the resort's fun-filled activity centers designed especially for them. In-room childcare is also available, so everyone can enjoy varied itineraries under the same roof.

No Magic

Extra $10/day for resort fee (including two bottles of water and internet access), plus another extra $18/day for parking turned our stay at the Dolphin into no bargain at all. Location is convenient, but we didn't take advantage of the boat to EPCOT. Next time, I'll save money and book at one of the low-price Disney resorts or off-property. Guest services cast members were not at all helpful in getting tickets to the park.

The Dolphin Hotel has a lot to offer visitors. It is central to all the Disney attractions, restaurants, and points of interest. If you wanted some time away without the parks & Magic Kingdom - the Dolphin is great. You can walk the Boardwalk, check out cirque du soleil, or go downtown from the Dolphin and not even miss Mickey. The only criticism of the hotel would be to make sure you check your room for smokey smell before you unpack. Many times bathrooms, or common areas smell like smoke and can ruin the experience. If this occurs the first rate staff are there to assist.

Use the Disney bus system, boats or the van provided by the Hotel. Usually parking is a nightmare or expensive.

On hotel site and on the web site of hotel there were better deals 159.00 with a 30 to 60 day in advance---- wow!! that would help me!!! it was a great place make sure to bring your own wine bottle-and remember that 20% is already added to your bill - even if the service does not always rate it. but would go back !!!!

WDW Dolphin

Fantastic selection of in-hotel restaurants, great pool, fitness center, in-hotel spa, location to Disney parks (walking paths to Epcot and Hollywood Studios), amenities. Can't beat the price for what you get.

Great location for the price

Walk to Epcot or take the ferries to other Disney parks - very easy to get around from the Dophin. Staff was very polite and quick to take care of minor issues (ran out of tissues). Good food at a good value. We would definitely stay there next time.
