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.
  • Starting 1 January 2015, self-parking (daily rate) is $18 inclusive of tax. Overnight self-parking is $18 plus tax.

Business Conference

The dolphin is always a great place to stay. I was attending a business conference and was told all the rooms were booked. I was lucky to get a room through this travel site. I checked in early and they were able to give me a room before Noon. The room was larger than i expected. very comfortable beds.. lots of dining choices at the Dolphin.. Great stay at a lower price than i expected

Nice comfortable hotel

Pool is clean and nice! Room service great! Only wish they have more restaurant options, we stay at Dolphin often and noticed the quality at Picabo restaurant went down, chicken soup way way too salty! Was better last year.

Always great, fabulous location

I've stayed here many times and overall love it. Great WDW Boardwalk location, easy walk to Epcot, nice boat transportation to Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and excellent on-site restaurants and shops.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Consider NOT renting a car, as the transportation options on-site are very good. A shuttle or cab from the airport is all you need. In a pinch, you can also rent a car on-site, too.

Disappointed

Ordinarily, I love this resort hotel. It's location to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and the Boardwalk area is fabulous, and the rooms, restaurants and facilities are very nice. However, beware of corporate events! Hotel management seemed to find nothing wrong with sectioning off the entire main pool and adjoining lap pool, pool bar and cabana area for a corporate event one afternoon and evening. I would be disappointed, but would accept that for one day, IF the hotel compensated guests in some way. After all, we paid for the use of the full facility, not a portion of it. However, Guest Services was disinterested, offered nothing to compensate, and I was not contacted by management as I requested.

Walk to Epcot

Many things to do at the hotel for kids and adults - good entertainment each night in the main lobby. Nice beach and pool area to relax in.

Epcot is right down the block. Take the free water taxi to get there.

For the money its a great value.

Not as fancy as the Boardwalk but a whole lot less expensive. The room was clean and very comfortable.

unbeatalble location - beautiful place

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.
