I attended a medical meeting at Disney World not long ago which was held at the award-winning Dolphin and Swan Resort complex. I’d never been to these hotels before and found them to be pretty impressive. Very massive modern structures, with over 2000 rooms between the two of them, they had interesting architecture, sitting beside a man-made lake. The resorts are near the Disney Boardwalk and very close to one of Disney World’s entrances.
Boat services on the lagoon allows guests to get from the resorts to various water-based destinations around Disney World, such as Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Each hotel has many restaurants and those I tried had excellent (albeit not cheap) food.
I was a little surprised that Disney doesn’t own these hotels outright — rather, they are owned by Starwood resorts.
