Amazing location

New York City, New York

The Dolphin was really a fantastic hotel. It was just fun. It embodies the spirit of Disney even though it’s not an official Disney hotel anymore. We had a character dinner- seafood buffet- at the swan next door, and the food was fantastic. The kids loved the characters. We had a balcony room with a view of Epcot. The view was beautiful. The only negative was that the balcony railings had huge gaps. We were surprised considering it’s a hotel that caters to little ones. The bed was also too soft and the bathroom was odd because it separated out the toilet and shower. The pools were gorgeous. It was a resort with bars, a playground, they showed a movie over the pool. Again, the key word was fun. Before my trip I couldn’t conceptualize the location. Basically, this hotel is around a lake with other awesome Disney hotels with lots of restaurants. And, you can walk to Epcot or take a boat. In conclusion, you get the Disney experience staying at the dolphin.

This is one of the cheaper Disney resort hotels, by cheap I don't mean that it is cheap as I find it rather expensive. The hotel is huge and the disadvantage is that it is very noisy in the hallways, at least in the hallway we were staying. People talking loudly and slamming with doors, kids running in the hallway and screaming late at night. Also the room could do with an upgrade, especially the door to the room, the doorhandle was not functioning very well. A negative thing I also find the resort fee. That is a lot of money for the things you get: bottles of water and use of swimming pool towel. The pro's are: the swimming pool area, walking distance to Epcot and Disney Boardwalk and real good shuttle service. The room is also quite spacious.
