Recognition of SPG status is always hit or miss depending on property, but in 30 years of travel (and Lifetime Gold on SPG) I've never had quite the experience of our recent visit to the Dolphin. a few months in advance, I requested a high floor room with a view. My assigned room had what I submit to be the...

I was so excited to finally able to go to the famous Swan as I have been to most of the resorts. The lobby was a bit confusing and easy to get twisted around. Carpets in the hall are worn and need updating. Needs were comfortable but housekeeping needs a sharper eye. I found 6 used Kleenexes in a drawer....

Just got back home from a recent stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort. Everything about it was more than what we could've asked for. The front desk guy (I forgot his name, but he said he was from Manchester) that checked us in was very personable and accommodating. Our room was even greater. Didn't know we had TWO...

Very pleasant and convinient place especialy for children. Rooms are clean and recently renovated. Location of hotel near to Disney theme parka in walking distance is very helpful for those who are traveling with small children. Food was avaerage but nearby at Disney Boardwalk there are some excellent restaurants.

Next to the boardwalk where you have some good street performers performing in the evening. Your evenings would be great. Walkable distance to Epcot. Convenient bus service to all parks. Late night cafeteria Picabu is good value for money.

The rooms are not great, actually average or a little below average. The rooms are dated, I was not impressed. The resort itself was beautiful with plenty of options for entertainment, dining and pool time. I would not stay here, sorry Disney🙁

This Hotel was a very nice place to stay at but we had a room situation that they put us in the wrong room that we booked and the after my parents complained they finally put us in the right room that we wanted the next day. The food was very good at picabu but very overpriced but it was...

Based on the reviews, I was nervous about staying at the Dolphin, but I was pleasantly surprised. Our room was large and very clean. I'm not sure if we got a renovated room as the sink was inside the bathroom not outside as most reviewers state. We had a nice view of the Boardwalk and could even see the France...
