Not a bad hotel, just got as good as the others...
There is no other way to say it, but this hotel is dated and it shows. While the hotel is still nice, it's not new, or newer or up to the same standards as other Disney hotels. It is a very good thing I found the hotel at the price I did, it would not be a value if it were any more expensive. Overall, the stay and experience are OK. But if you are looking for the same quality you get at other Disney hotels, you will want to look somewhere else.

Beautiful hotel
Very clean and well maintained hotel. My only complaint was no vent in the bathroom. Besides that, I loved this hotel.

Great Stay
Nice short stay. I was very happy with the room and especially the guest services when purchasing my tickets. I was only going to do 1 park 1 day but was upgraded to 1 day park hopper which was very convenient since we could take the boat to EPCOT and then grab the monorail to MK. Will stay again at the Dolphin
