Lovely time at the hotel.The Christmas decorations were wonderful and a brilliant location for the parks. Brilliant things for the children to do, they loved the pool area and the evening events for Christmas. We had a great room with wonderful views of the park.

Let me preface by saying... don't waste your money on any other over priced disney resort until you stay here. The lobby is gorgeous. The staff are friendly and efficient. The room is large, clean and comfy. The shampoo smells amazing! There's plenty to do on the grounds.

I'm still in the midst of my business stay at the Dolphin and have to say I do wish I may have chosen another hotel. While here for a conference (thought tacking on some leisure days) I didn't have a lot of needs but some basic/odd things just seem to follow me at this hotel.

$23 plus taxes per day if you stay at the hotel. There are bus shuttles to take you to the parks to avoid the $25 per day parking in each park. Dolphin has a great location, besides all the amenities in the same hotel, you can walk to Boardwalk (with plenty entertainment and food options) and Disney Fantasia Mini golf course. I usually park in the golf course parking that is free when I want to visit Boardwalk or the hotels nearby.

Hello, Yes the Swan and Dolphin will have many activities and the annual glow in the dark Easter egg hunt. They will also have the Easter bunny and a PEEPS themed event.

I’ve stayed at the Dolphin which was able to join a few rooms together so it might be worth calling to ask. We had to call to book that. Also, Disney’s Old Key West, Boardwalk, and a few others have 2 and 3 bedroom villas.

There is a refrigerator in each room with a small freezer. If that is not sufficient I am sure that if you contact the front desk they will be able to accommodate you.

"I'd ask for a room close to the elevator due to long"
"High room overlooking Epcot to see 9pm Fireworks every night"
"High floor and get a balcony, worth it for the extra room"
"We stayed in a high room in the West Wing. Can get noisy in the corridor. House keeping staff was very friendly."
