    Nice hotel shame about the $33 resort fee per day

    The hotel is very nice, clean and very comfortable beds. My only concern is the additional $33 resort fee you pay on top of an expensive booking for a hotel room. Will not be returning due to the daily resort fee.

    ve it a try if you’re a Disney Resort fan!

    Truly fantastic! We have stayed at Disney resort hotels previously but there’s something special about the Dolphin from the Egyptian cotton sheets and comforter to the staff and facilities! Other than the dreaded resort tax our entire stay was just blissful.

    Excellent location for Disney. Excellent transport to parks. Pity they hadn’t allocated the room we booked. Not interested that we had a booked confirmation. Booked a king room with shower and view. After 50mins given an upgrade to a bigger room. Pity it had 2 double beds. Bath with shower over in a tidy bathroom no view dirty windows and a very dusty room wanted what we booked!!

    Loved the fact you can walk to Epcot, Hollywood Studios and the Boardwalk, absolutely loved the pool complex, and the pool complex was not Disney themed so felt like a proper relaxing holiday when you came back to the Dolphin

    Great hotel in a good location. Easy walk to Hollywood studios and EPCOT. Expensive additional resort charge daily needs budgeting for.
