    Emily from OH Asked

    Hello! I booked the Dolphin Hotel through WDW's website. I was wondering what kind of room I can expect? Will I get the tickets to the mini golf course? So excited to be so close to everything, but also so nervous to not be staying at a Disney resort

    Hey there, hi there Emily! You're always welcome as can be at planDisney, and we're so glad you're hEAR! 

    My family and I have stayed at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel several times. As teachers, my husband and I love to take advantage of special rates sometimes available to educators, and you can't beat the location, just steps away from EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios. While it's not officially part of the Disney Resorts Collection, and you won't be able to do things like charge purchases to your resort and ride Disney's Magical Express®, I think you'll enjoy your time here. 

    Standard rooms at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel feature two double beds, a full bathroom, and various amenities. You'll also find a coffeemaker with Starbucks coffee packets and several bottles of water included with your resort fee. Some rooms have balconies, so if this is important to you, call the resort ahead of time, or let the front desk know at check-in. While the rooms don't have the same touches of Disney decor you might be used to in hotels of the Disney Resorts Collection, they're nicely appointed with modern finishes and plush bedding. You'll be snoozing like Sleeping Beauty in the Heavenly Beds!

    Guests of the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel are eligible for complimentary parking at the Disney theme parks, but watercraft transportation is provided to EPCOT and Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Mears buses transport visitors directly to Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park and the Magic Kingdom Park via the Transportation & Ticket Center. If you're like me and prefer to leave the car keys at home on vacation, you'll still access to convenient enjoy bus and boat transportation during your stay. 

    If you booked a Walt Disney World vacation package that includes Magical Extras, you'll receive four miniature golf vouchers upon check-in, so be sure to schedule some time on the links! Fantasia Gardens & Fairways Miniature Golf, located just steps from your resort, is a fun way to bring some friendly competition to your vacation. 

    I hope this is getting you excited about your upcoming stay at the Walt Disney World Dolphin! The EPCOT Resort Area is my favorite place to be, and I know you're in for a magical vacation here. Thanks for coming to see us at planDisney, and if there's anything else we can do before your adventure begins, stop by again. 

    Wishing you a great, big, beautiful tomorrow!
