Mobile Dolphin Hotel?

Sorry - I don't know how to search on the app...

Anyone stayed here recently? TripAdvisor reviews aren't the best, but coming out as 150pn which I'm wondering if is quite good value? Or not...?!

Yes we stayed for 2 nights in September. 150 is a good rate. We had a resort view booked and were offered a balcony at check in for another $20 a night. Its a lovely hotel.

Thank you. I'm wondering if it worth just staying at the dolphin rather than how expensive the Disney hotels are coming in at...? Can you still book 60 days out? Can you remember how much parking and resort fees were?

Yes you can still book 60 days out. Unfortunately the parking and resort fees make it less attractive. We only stayed 2 nights during a stay at Coronado Springs so left the car behind as it was around $25 to park I think. Resort fees were $30 I think. Its a fantastic location though and the rooms are nice. Bathrooms are small as is the sink area but Id say thats the only downside.

You do get to book fast passes at 60 days out and you do get the benefit of EMH.
We stayed at the Swan a few years ago now and really liked it. I've read recently read that parking is $25 and the resort fee is $30 a day which definitely puts me off staying there again.

Edit - sorry, I hate repeating info... Lisa beat me to it!

If parking is a factor in hotel choice, all Disney hotels will be charging for overnight parking in 2020.
There is a scale of charges depending on whether the hotel is value, moderate or deluxe.

If you decide to do without a car the the Dolphin doesnt qualify for the magical express.

Lovely hotel in a great position though.
