OK RESORT

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Update Rooms
Location: Disney World parks, you can walk to Epcot, take water taxi to Magic Kingdom...
We stayed for 3 days/2 nights. First the positive: The convenience of the location to the parks and restaurants in hotel. Not so great: We were surprised to have been charged on top of our nightly rate a "mandatory" $23 per night fee plus parking $16 per night. Which in the end makes the quoted rates online seem to be unrealistic. You're not told about the charges until you're checking -in and at this point what can you do?? WE had requested a room with a view, was told at checkin "all our rooms have great views" - NOT! We were given a room with the roof view to the convention center. My husband had to speak with manager in order to get our room changed. I think for next time, for what Disney considers a Delxe category, I will stay at their Boardwalk hotel area. I think if these mandatory fees are provided up front while your booking, I would consider Hotel, otherwise, I will keep looking.

Would Stay at Dolphin Again

Posted Nov 21, 2014
Pros: It was on the Disney property but it was not as expensive as the other Disney hotels near Epcot.
Cons: The bathroom was outdated and the tile floor could use replacing.
Location: We loved taking the ferry boat to Epcot. We also walked back from the park. It's really not that far and you pass by the Boardwalk, which is nice.
We had a corner King room with two balconies, one was covered. It was wonderful and the view was beautiful. The bed was comfortable, but the bathroom could use a bit of work (no deal breaker though). Check-in and check-out staff were very friendly and helpful. Charged one of our cell phones at concierge desk ... a nice little perk, since we arrived too early for our room to be ready. Hotel offers quite a few bars and eateries, as well as a couple shops.

Pros: Cleanliness, places to eat inside the hotel
Location: Epcot and all the Disney fun things
We booked our stay thru Expedia , it was a package. We have always stayed at a resort such as Boardwalk or Polynesian. The hotel was very nice. I had the misfortune of becoming sick while there. So did not use pool or many of the amenities but is was still a nice trip.

Never again

Posted Nov 17, 2014
We got locked out of our room for almost 45 minutes at night with 3 little kids. Then we ordered expensive room service and it wasn't even edible. We won't be staying here again.

Easy access to parks

Posted Nov 17, 2014
Everything was ok. It was a basic hotel- however the AC wasn't working right. Room was damp otherwise nothing out of the ordinary. A room close to the parks with decent food

Close to Epcot.

Posted Nov 16, 2014
Excellent hotel adjacent to EPCOT and the Boardwalk. Great restaurants and shops both in the hotel and nearby . Parking is $16. Rates vary considerably based on the time of the year.
