    Beautiful resort

    The resort is beautiful and perfectly located. The staff was helpful and friendly. The room was very hot no matter how low you lower the temperature and there are no ceiling fans to compensate for the heat. Next time we’ll bring a fan with us. The TV remote barely worked and we didn’t want to put the remote on our phones. Other than that it was wonderful.

    An enjoyable evening at Disney Dolphin

    This is a nice Marriott hotel. Room is very nice. Parking is a bit expensive but so is everything at Disney.

    Room didn't justify the cost. Disappointing

    We were asked and we agreed to upgrade our room at check in for an additional cost to a theme view. Our room was not a theme park view whatsoever. Also the beds were only double, not queen and they were very uncomfortable. I was very disappointed with this hotel for the cost. I will not stay there again

  • 2.0.Poor

    Oh dear. Never again.

    Visited for my brother’s “Disney Wedding”. The wedding was great because it was Disney. The hotel was a disgraceful shambles. Bride & Groom weren’t given a room, we’re given a nasty room adjoining a screaming family at MIDNIGHT. Next morning we met up in the lobby where they finally got to see a manager about getting a proper room. Look, lovely people, busy place, garbage organization. Even the self service car park gate wouldn’t dispense tickets because “the rain breaks it”. Plus side, my wife and I had a nice room, but we were only staying for two nights, not forced to stay for a week just so we could be married there.

    Always nice. Tried to drop two nights with hotels.com as hotels was the agent. Went right to hotel. Much better service. Third party booking company is terrible

    Great stay

    It was a beautiful hotel and I would definitely stay again. The coffee and breakfast sandwiches at Fuel are delicious. The water taxi to and from Epcot was so fast, free parking at Disney, and we got in 30 minutes early to the parks. It’s definitely worth staying on Disney property!
