    What are my transportation options from the airport to the Dolphin Resort and from the Dolphin Resort to the theme parks, water parks, Downtown Disney, etc., and then back to the airport on day of departure?

    Hi Lisa!

    Once you are at the Walt Disney World Dolphin, you can take Disney buses and boats to the various theme parks, Downtown Disney, water parks, etc.  You will also have access to Extra Magic Hours in the various parks by just showing your hotel room key.  The problem, however, is getting to the Dolphin from the airport in the first place.  The Dolphin is not served by Disney's Magical Express, which is limited to Disney owned and operated hotels at Walt Disney World.  You can take a taxi, rent a town car (just for the trip to the airport and back), take a Mears shuttle, etc.  It's about 30 minutes from the airport to the Dolphin, depending on traffic.

    Good luck with your decision and write back if you have any more questions!
