    hehe I can see people queuing up to diss the swolphin so I'll get in there first :-D

    I really like them. Bad bits first, yeah they tend to have a lot of convention people especially in the Dolphin, but it's huge and that just adds to the hustle and bustle :)

    They tend to have great customer service, sure, not disney, but sometimes I can get all-disney'd-out at the disney resorts anyway. Great restaurants in the Dolphin especially blue zoo and shulas.

    I think the rooms have better tv than the Disney resorts and some more bits and pieces like a mini-bar :D Basically a great hotel on Disney property which can be a proper hotel without having to be all kid-friendly all the time.

    Then you have a great location, walkable to the boardwalk, the studios, nice boat ride to the parks.

    Some great memories of the dolphin ;)

    I'd never been near them until my last trip and you get quite close to them on the boat ride between DHS and Epcot and I liked the look of them.


    Can you not walk to Epcot from them Keith?

    Read 'Mousetrapped'. It's a really good read, written by a staff member who worked there :)
