    This property is close to the parks. There are a lot of activities for kids. I also found the restaurant options very good. The staff was always nice, especially Jael in The Fountain.

    The carpets were really worn looking in the hallways.

    The location was a big factor in reserving the Dolphin. We wanted to be able to come and go to the parks without having to drive. The rooms were great and the beds and pillows were wonderful

    The resort fee and separate parking fee were a bit too much but I know all resorts are going in this direction. It doesn't make it exactly right though. The bathroom was a bit too small.

    From the moment you stepped on the property you were greeted and given respect to the point one felt like they were a ViP. I noticed everyone was treated this way. Staff go above and beyond to ensure a stay is comfortable and a truly exceptional experience.

    Location and atmosphere was excellent and met expectations, with short journey times to local Disney attractions. Staff were always friendly and helpful.

    Breakfast options within the hotel felt limited, and overpriced for what was on offer, and we often took advantage of other options outside of the hotel in the mornings.
