My husband and I stayed 2 nights for our anniversary. A Friday and Saturday night. We checked in Friday late afternoon. On top of the overpriced room for what you get, you are charged another $25 resort fee (plus tax and fee on top of that!) and $20 parking fee per night. The room was small. No better than a...

Woke up to find this massive bedbug the size of a large watermelon seed under our daughter (See pic). Management tried to do what they could to make it right but there is not much they can do in this situation. If it was me or my husband, that would be one thing. However, to see our 3y/o daughter with...

While it may seem pricey, this was a very nice resort and offered free, convenient transportation to the various Disney parks. It was also within walking distance to Epcot, which we did not visit during this stay. The rooms were very nice, comfortable, and were quiet enough for a good night's rest. For future visits to Disney, we would definitely...

Went to Orlando because son was to swim at Epcot (scuba dive) in the tank. We decided to stay at the Dolphin because of its proximity to the park. 1. Lobby was decorated nicely and check in was easy and smooth 2. Room view was adequate 3. Rooms a little dated, carpet dirty, bathroom very small and very dated 4....

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback! What an exciting experience for your son to have the opportunity to scuba dive at EPCOT's "The Living Seas!"

Pros- great location to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Boardwalk hotels. Found a great rate on a off site website which was fair for the hotel value. Above average size rooms with fridge. Our second room was renovated which was worth the $25 upgrade we paid at check in. Very comfortable beds. Cons- we paid $35 to upgrade to a balcony...

Great property to have a meeting or family vacation. We did both and were very impressed with the helpful staff. You can walk to Epcot or Disney Studios, if not just hop on one of the boats to take you there. They have buses to take you to the other parks that are on a regular schedule. The rooms are...

It was a wonderful place to hold our meeting of 2000 people. Service was great as you can see the staff went out of their way to accommodate the meetings, especially during luncheon and breaks. There were no added distractions during meetings. Getting around was easy. There is aboard walk close by, so you can stretch out after a long...

I returned to the Dolphin after 18 years with my family and it still has that magical Disney feel. (Even though it is not a Disney Hotel). The hotel has great transport links to all the parks. The friendship boat (located between the swan and dolphin hotel) will get you to either Hollywood studios or Epcot in 20mins. The Disney...
