The Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel is a Florida inspired design and is one of the Deluxe level resorts built on the edge of Crescent Lake in Orlando. Walk out to the front of the main building and you will see a beautiful walkway bridge across Crescent Lake lined with magnificent landscaping and Palm trees that join this hotel to its sister property the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel. It is pretty easy to tell the which property you are visiting by the large Dolphins or Swans perched high on top of the respective Hotels. As you look at the surroundings, you understand why this location is known for its elegance and prestige.

Not a Disney Resort?

By the name of it, you would think that the Dolphin Resort has to be a Disney Property. In fact, you will notice that right beside this Hotel, you have access to some of the great resort Disney offers their guests like the Boardwalk Inn the Yacht Club and the Beach Club. All of these properties are located in the same area and surround the same body of water that allows the Water Taxis to travel from each of the Resorts directly to Epcot. Incredibly enough, even though the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort is not run by Disney, it still has access to most of the perks that Disney property guests receive. This is a very positive feature when trying to decide where to stay when visiting the Orlando Fl area.

Dolphin Rooms and Suites

There are many different rooms and suites available at this hotel but part of the fun in picking the right accommodations is also getting the view that you are interested in. The rooms at the Dolphin Resort have a more contemporary design and feel to them with clean lines that add a level of sophistication. Select on of the more standard style rooms or upgrade to one of the more luxurious Suite options. It doesn’t matter what you decide on, they are all very impressive accommodations.

Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando with Waterfalls and a Water Slide

There are many different places to relax and splash around during your visit. You should also know that since the Dolphin and the Swan Resorts are Sisters, they also share the pools and water fun with all of the guests that visit. The largest Water Fun includes a play area complete with a long area covered with waterfalls that you can walk around underneath. On the back side of the pool is a nice, long, refreshing water slide that the kids will want to slide down over and over. If a more quiet, serene day is what you have planned, there are a total of 4 additional Quiet Pools around the 2 resorts to meet that need as well. For the smaller kids in the family, the kids pool might be a better fit with shallow water so you do not have to have safety concerns. The lake is lined with white sandy beaches and is a great place for the parents to relax in one of the chairs on the beach while the kids play like they have taken a trip to the ocean. There are so many fun things to do that you need to read through the information about the Dolphin Resort Pools.
