    The location is the best, right next to Epcot's 2nd entrance so you beat the long lines at the main one!! Beautiful Fireworks view from the balcony and the staff was amazing too!! They have a great lobby bar, but it closes at 12:30am so its to early if you spend all day at the parks!!! The Disney bus system is great right out front the hotel and it takes you anywhere over the whole Disney property and all the parks!! To get to Epcot you can take a Disney boat or walk its not too far, but after walking all day at the Epcot we took the boat!!

    You have to pay for parking, it's $25 a day or $35 if parked by Valet to me that's too high considering your also paying for you Hotel room nightly too!! But it's Disney and they are there to make money!!

    Location location location. You can walk to Epcot and Disney Hollywood Studios. They also have boat transportation to both parks. Plenty of night time activities available between the Dolphin and Swan hotels as well 3 Disney hotels the Boardwalk, Yacht Club and Beach Club. Lots of restaurants from quick snacks to gourmet dining available right outside your door. Our room at the Dolphin was excellent. Perfect view of Epcot and could see the fireworks right from our room. Everything was perfect.
