Dolphin comes through for us.

Stayed here the third week in August to end the Summer before school started. Very good stay. Great location. Excellent staff. Walk or boat to Epcot.

Pathetic Rooms for what you pay...

Paid over $250 a night for a room where the Epcot fireworks can be viewed. Fireworks were low standard and was not worth paying $75 additional to get the view. Rooms were so tiny and cleanliness of the rooms were average. Had to pay for each and everything that a normal hotel usually provides. Examples would be: 1.) Pay $2.99 to $5.99 to watch kids channels, HBO movie channels, etc. (I can't believe that we had to pay to watch handymanny or cartoon networks!) 2.) 384KBPS wifi comes free however if you need speed beyond that you need to pay additional $4.99 3.) Room service will add seperate fees for delivery, service and taxes on top of that (in addition to the tips and perks you already pay). All the above fees are in addition to the $10.00/day mandatory fees added to your bill. Quality of rooms won't even come near a regular Quality Inn or Holiday Inn hotel rooms!!

Never pay additional fees to any rooms to watch the fireworks from your room! It was not worth paying $75 extra....

Dolphin--August 2010

The room was lovely--newly renovated, sparkling clean and with a great view. Location was perfect for walking to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and the Boardwalk. There was a nice mix of people--convention attendees and families alike. Boat service to Epcot and Hollywood Studios was super. Shared buses with other area resorts made other travel very crowded at times. The number of adults with drinks IN the pool was a little off-putting. Enjoy a beverage on the deck, yes, but perhaps put it down when you go in for a dip.

Not impressed

Hotel service very slow. Requested a crib at time of reservation, again by phone later, and at check in. Crib not in room, called twice to get one and went to desk to request the crib. Took over six hours to get crib...eventually at midnight it arrived. Also found a dirty wash cloth upon entering the shower the first time. It made me feel I may not have had a clean room when I arrived. Guest service and housekeeping very poor. This is a huge hotel and convention center. Bus to Disney was good and fairly quick.

Request a room close to elevators. Some rooms can be quite a walk from the elevator, especially with small children or just being exhausted by the end of the day.

Dolphin Hotel, Walt Disney World

The rest of the family (our daughter, son-in-law, and 6-year old granddaughter were staying at the Boardwalk Hotel, which was very near the Dolphin and Epcot. Transportation between all 3 was by boat! Which was a fun way to travel at Disney. Breakfast was cafeteria-style and the lines were long. Food was good.

Not what I expected.

The hotel was beautiful but I didn't get to take advantage of it. I thought it was a Disney property and could use my key card to charge at Disney but that was not the case. Luckily my daughter had her credit card. But I still had to go back to the hotel to get mine and that took away from my day. No vegetarian options at resturaunts.

Great Time

Very friendly staff. Weekend was a suprise trip for my girlfriend (and now fiancee) who I kept the entire weekend from until we got to the gate at the airport. She knew nothing about it before that day. Had a great time.

Can walk to 5 different hotels within 5 to 10 minutes with easy access to all the parks via bus or ferry. Plenty of access to restaurants and shops also.
