I visited the Disney’s Dolphin Resort in April of 2021 during the Covid Pandemic. Our choice for this hotel was not only the fact I had not stayed there before, but it was also on my list of wished destinations! It was a wonderful resort to choose since we were going to be visiting Disney’s Epcot Park and it allowed us just a short walk to Epcot. The Dolphin and Swan Hotel are located on Disney Property in the Epcot Resort area, but is a Marriott and Westin Property.
To book a resort reservation for this hotel you will need to visit the website to the property which will allow you to book either the Swan or Dolphin. You will not find it on the Walt Disney World website even though it sits on Disney Property. The website to book a room is https://swandolphin.com
Dolphin is a Marriott Property and The Swan is a Westin Property. We stayed at the Dolphin. The Dolphin and the Swan are walkable to each other. The property is beautiful and is really pretty in the evening when lit up. The resort has a variety of options for dining which was very easy to book a dining reservation through the Open Table App. You will not be able to book reservations for dining on the Walt Disney World app. You can download the Open Table app to your smart phone.
The resort for both Dolphin and Swan have a large area of pools with slides, lounger chairs and tables, bars, play grounds for your children, a fitness center, a business center, shops, java cafe’s and a place to get ice cream dipped or soft serve, boats to rent, a beach and plenty of areas to sit and relax if need be. The resort is located walking distance to the Disney’s Boardwalk Hotel. The Boardwalk is a nice walk to the other Epcot Resort Hotels such as The Beach and Yacht Club resorts, The Disney Boardwalk Hotel and the Entrance to Epcot can all be walked along Disney’s Boardwalk. It also provides a variety of shops, dining and bars. You can also rent Surrey Bikes. The bars and restaurants along the Disney’s Boardwalk take reservations made through the Walt Disney World website under dining.
Our room was clean, spacious and had all the amenities we needed like free bottle water, Starbucks for in room coffee, shampoo, conditioner, bath soap, hair dryer, safe, ice bucket and laundry bags. I have included some video of the room also in the video below.
Disney Transportation for the Dolphin Hotel area is either by bus or boat. The boat ramp sits between the Dolphin and Swan hotels for easy access and makes many stops. The transportation is free for resort guests.
