Guest reviews for Walt Disney World Dolphin

Everyone (1)
4 out of 5
Good location right next to the Boardwalk with easy bus & boat connections to all the parks & Disney Springs. The room was OK for a family of 5 with an added roll-away bed but it helped that we were out all day at the parks. The main disadvantages were not being able to use the Disney Airport Express and having to pay cash or use a credit card for every transaction outside the hotel because the hotel isn't part of the MagicBand experience.
