Visit the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel

Located Within Walt Disney World

The Dolphin Hotel, sister to the neighboring Swan Hotel, offers luxurious accommodations within the Disney World grounds. (The Dolphin is a Sheraton and the Swan is a Westin.) Walt Disney World's attractions are all around you, and as a guest you'll get early entrance to the parks. And with Disney World as your host, you're assured of a clean, friendly, and secure environment for your family.

Get Around Without Your Car

Choose your free transportation to the park's attractions. Walk to shops on Disney's Boardwalk, next to the hotel. Walk or take a water taxi to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Shuttle buses take you to the Magic Kingdom, Downtown Disney, and other Disney parks. The shops offer free delivery of your purchases to the Dolphin, so don't worry about being weighed down.


Business Meetings and Events at the Dolphin

Whether you're planning a few meetings, or a conference, or a big event, the Dolphin has all the facilities you need. Two fully equipped business centers offer up-to-date software and equipment. For weddings and social events, having Disney World at hand offers a thrilling setting for your guests. You'll have many choices for catering. The expert staff can help you plan and carry out your events with ease.

Relax With the Family

Cool off in the lush tropical 3-acre grotto pool with a waterfall and water slide, relax in the quiet spring pool, or work out in the lap pool. Kids 4-12 can enjoy supervised play at Camp Dolphin, or let older kids romp in the playground next to the grotto pool. Try your skill at the games in the arcade. Keep fit with modern equipment in the health center. Ease into a whirlpool, or really pamper yourself with treatments in the Mandara Spa.

Plenty of Dining Choices

Many restaurants await you at the Dolphin. For casual meals from breakfast to supper, try the Garden Grove where Disney characters can visit your table, or the world cuisine of the Fresh Mediterranean Market (breakfast and lunch only). For more formal evening dining, try the Miami Dolphins-themed Shula's Steakhouse for steaks and seafood, the Bluezoo for seafood by Chef Todd English, Il Mulino New York Trattoria for Italian with a Manhattan flair, or the intimate and comfortable Kimono's for sushi, tempura, duck, or Kobe beef. 

Retreat to Your Luxurious Room or Suite

Choose a traditional room, a resort room with a balcony view, or a larger family room with sleeping options. Your 37-inch TV also lets you plan your day with the hotel's information system. Stay connected with Wi-Fi. Enjoy the beverage center and sleep on a heavenly bed. Or choose from four classes of suites with luxurious amenities and beautiful views.

Hipmunk Staff Review

The Dolphin and the Swan offer similar, sometimes shared amenities. The best choice might depend on whether you have a points plan with either Westin or Sheraton. In either case, staying at Disney World brings many deals and perks not available elsewhere.
