    Perfect for Epcot access”

    We knew we were going to Epcot center, so it was an easy decision to choose the Dolphin resort with its free access by boat to Epcot and leaving the car in the resort parking saved us parking fees as well. Win-Win. The best was its pools and man-made beach areas to relax and unwind from the madness of the theme parks. There is a large waterfall with a cooling grotto and the beach was hardly used by anyone at all. We both fell asleep in the shade of palm trees after our red-eye flight. The rooms are very spacious, but sadly no coffee maker, microwave, etc to complete the resort experience. Resort fee is unreasonable considering it does not cover parking. This may be a Disney property, but it was not over-run by screaming kids and large families. Very pleasant choice.

    The key benefit of staying at this hotel is easy access to Disney parks which also enables you to take a break during the day and revisit the parks at nights. The amenities are excellent. The room size is good but overall more like 3 star. Restaurants onsite are expensive

    on our disney moon ”

    great everything thing here. Room was great and we were in the center of alot. The pool and cabana was perfect. The only think I would change is getting customers to the airport - or provided a shuttle. We were told over the phone by a staff member that there was a shuttle, However on our last day, we had to take an uber. There must be a lock down on shuttles on this resort. This was fine, however would have liked to know this before hand. As for the sushi restaurant, and blue zoo.. food was great, room was great.

    Not happy with the $30 resort fee per night, $25 self parking fee per night, ridiculously overpriced food and the fact that we paid extra for a “fireworks view” which was non existent. If you think you are saving $ staying here - think again! It’s a good location and the facilities are nice but the extra fees are frustrating and the food choices were overly expensive.

Un immense merci à elle!!! L hotel est bien, particulièrement pratique pour aller à Epcot à pied, les petits déjeuners sont très chers : on a le choix entre un service à emporter (5,50$ le pain au chocolat) ou le buffet (hors de prix env 30 pour adultes et 20 pour enfants) de qualité moyenne et dont on ne profite pas car on est pressé d aller faire les parcs d attraction.
