We stayed at the Swan and enjoyed the amenities that both the Swan and Dolphin have to offer. This was a great location for us, as we mainly were here for the EPCOT food and wine event. Boats took us from the Swan/Dolphin into the International Showcase which is where most of the food and wine kiosks are located. A...

We stayed at the Dolphin, not the Swan. The hotel is quite outdated, more so than your would expect from a Walt Disney World Resort. The beds were fine, rooms were nicely sized, but the bathrooms certainly showed the age of the property. In all fairness, the front desk did let us know that the entire property is in progress...

Took my family here in October, 2014. The strengths of the hotel were 1) the boat travel to Epcot and Hollywood studios 2) the pool area was fun for my family. 3) People were very nice from the time we checked in. The challenges were: 1) you had to take the bus to Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom which means...

This was a family holiday and the hotel was the cherry on the cake. Close to everything Disney and walking distance to Epcot and more importantly for me, minutes to the Boardwalk. The Boardwalk surrounds a small lake and was a delight to walk round in the evenings OR in my case also during the very early hours with a...

Stayed at the Dolphin mid September, 2014. We came down for the Epcot Food and Wine Festival. My wife and child had never been to Disney.
