We had a terrible experience at the Dolphin, and I honestly can't recommend it to anyone. Our room was filthy, our toilet paper and towels repeatedly weren't replenished, and our maid was rude and offensive. I'm still ticked off about that stay.

I love the Swan and Dolphin, and just returned from the Swan 3 days ago. I prefer the location of the Epcot resorts, but would be willing to stay at WL again at a lower price.

Looking at just the resorts, I would definately choose the WL, particularly if it is cheaper! I've stayed at both, and had great trips both times, but as far as the resorts go I liked the WL so much better. We payed considerably less at the Dolphin than the WL, but it was years ago that we stayed at the Dolphin. My only caveat is if you would prefer to be walking distance to Epcot and DHS - then I would put some more consideration into the Dolphin. Reading your post it sounds like that isn't a priority, so I still say WL! I love it there -in fact I got married there!
