Isn't Mike in a Dolphin Executive Suite right now? MIKE?!?!?!?
No there were not any microwaves in our room, but we did have 3 fridges.

Yes they do have refillable mugs.


Sorry about the delay in posting just getting over a cold/flu. Luckly the symptoms didn't start until our last day (Tuesday), actually when we were waiting for our van to pick us up. Maybe The thought of leaving made me sick.

Yesterday I must have looked really bad because my sister-in-law refused to let me drive home and drove me instead.

Plan on posting executive suite photos in the over the weekend.

Oh yes, the cruise definitely made up for it. But, I hope to plan a return to the Dolphin in the next year or two. (Next year is London or Paris for DD, but I want to see if we can squeeze a Dolphin stay in there, too!)

Mike - except for the cold, I am so glad to hear you had a great time. Look forward to pix when you're feeling up to it!

Mike, get well asap. Please give us trip reports with pix!

Our trip to the Swan is about a month away. We missed going last summer because our DS was being married in San Diego. We did go to DL, of course.

We are now back on track with our yearly visits to the Swan and WDW.


This has been our New England weather for 4 days!

Thanks all, still running a slight temperature but feeling feeling much better today

Here are some photos of where our rooms were located (1034 and 1039).







View form the Suite


View from the bedroom


While we didn't have much of a view from our first floor executive suite the rooms more than made up for it.

I will post photos of the rooms and will also add some higher resolution versions of the photos to the s/d picture thread later tonight.

As I said before, anything that was lacking from a view standpoint was more than made up for by the Dolphin Executive Suite. Here are some photos from the Suite portion:

And here are some photos from the attached bedroom portion:
















We aren't sure exactly what type of room this was. It definitely did not appear to be a standard guest room. We were thinking that it might have been Disability Accessible room? The kitchen (worked great for the crib) and walk in closet was a nice surprise.

For $309 a night, we were extremely happy with the Dolphin Executive Suite and would have a tough time justifying a Disney Moderate of Deluxe Resort if we needed more than one room. The extra room in the suite was great, especially when the girls went to bed.

Never have seen an executive suite before - wow, the space is wonderful!
Years ago, we were upgraded to a jr suite, but yours is far larger Mike.

Thanks!~ Awesome pics!

Of course, now I'm confused. The layout that's on the Dolphin website shows a sico bed (which I thought was coming out of the wall? but that one doesn't look like that type) And the couch in front of that..... so both the person on the pullout couch and the sico bed could watch t.v. But these pictures are configured differently. That couch is a pull out, right? We reserved for a suite that would hold 8 people.

I guess I'll have to wait 3 days and see Thanks again!

Hey, maybe that neat guy who runs the lemonade stand will stop by and tell us which room type this is. We've been going to the Dolphin since our 27 yr old ds was 8 or 9 and in all the trips I have never, ever seen his little kiosk of lemonade?????

Thanks MichiganMomto4,

I can understand the confussion. The room is definitely different than the s/d website shows. I think we came to the conclusion that the reason they do not show Executive Suite photos on the website is because the layouts very. The Swan Executive Suites TaraPA stayed at 2 months ago had a Sico bed in it and the Swan isn't support to have them. Our room had a King bed instead of the sico, and yes it was a heavenly bed.

Although we never tried it, the couch is a pull-out. My foot still has a bruise from the night I ran into it.

Thanks simonmunro I'm feeling much better today. I will also try to post a detailed report of our stay this weekend, may even get to it tonight. But my short report is that , other than the heat, we had a wonderful stay at WDW and the s/d.
