"Just ok"
June, 2016
I was kind of disappointed at the room for how much we paid. We upgraded to a balcony room with a view to the fireworks at Epcott. Room was outdated and smelled musty. It wasn't worth the extra money.

Tip: I'd save your money and stay and a standard hotel.

"Marriott/Disney magic at its best"

We stayed here over the Columbus Day weekend and was extremely impressed by the Dolphin and it’s services. I stayed here once before and enjoyed it. Though Disney doesn’t run the hotel it just has enough of that Disney magical to make wonderful. You can’t be the location is right in the middle of EPCOT Resort Area. You can walk to either EPCOT and Hollywood Studios or you can take the boat to either park. Transportation to the other parks are available through Disney Transport Service. The rooms are decent size and bathroom along with room were updated. We enjoyed the hotel and we will definitely be back.

"Great location! "

This resort is NOT run by Disney; it’s a Sheraton resort, although it is part of the SPG/Marriott group (points will count). We love this resort so much we stayed here three times in 2018! Aside from the stunningly beautiful lobby, you cannot beat the location, in my opinion. You can walk or take the friendship boats to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It is an easy walk to the boardwalk area which includes great entertainment and restaurant choices. However, with choices like the Don Shula steakhouse and Todd English Blue Zoo, you might not even want to leave the Dolphin! The Swan is right next door with a character meal experience (Garden Grove). The rooms are clean and comfortable, but no special Disney theming. We did miss Disney TV channels, my boys like to watch the classic Disney cartoon channel at the end of our Disney days. There is a Disney gift shop at the resort and Disney transportation buses will pick you up for all of their resorts. The pool area is fabulous! Right now, you can probably book a room for the equivalent price of Disney’s moderate resorts. However, I suspect this will jump up significantly once Star Wars land opens. I highly recommend the Dolphin!

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. Boardwalk is a short stroll away and there's free shuttles to disney. The only down sides... the food is over priced and the hot tub wasn't hot. I'll be returning for a longer stay most definitely!!!
