More Room Types

Renovated in 2015, the Walt Disney World Dolphin Resort is located in the heart of Walt Disney World Resort, so guests can "escape the midday heat for a dip in the pool" (Fodor's) between rides.

Guest rooms are breezy and spacious and come with free Wi-Fi, perfect for booking complimentary transportation to the rest of the Disney theme parks. Or guests can spend a day at the pool, a theme park unto itself. The three-acre water oasis is surrounded by lush foliage and features a waterfall, slides, caves and hot tubs.

Dine and unwind at 17 restaurants and lounges, described as "excellent" by Fodor's, including a Shula's Steakhouse and an award-winning seafood restaurant, with character dining available. Or, splurge on a decadent treatment at the on-site Mandara Spa, offering Balinese-style rejuvenation.

Guests of Disney Resort hotels receive the benefits of early FastPass+ access, extra hours in the theme parks, MagicBand bracelets for keyless room entry, theme park admission and purchases, complimentary parking and transportation within the resort and to the airport, as well as dining plans for every budget.
