*~Swan and Dolphin Picture thread!~*

I have seen a lot of threads lately for pictures of specific resorts and thought it was time for one of Swalphin pix. So come on all you Swan/Dolphin fans and post your pix here. I'll start off with a few from our trip last June at the Swan.

Thanks so much Crazy Kanga, I love your pictures, I am getting so excited about our first stay at the Dolphin in June and pictures just help to add to the excitement.

Your welcome. I know I need lots of great pictures to help me make it until my trip and to add some sunshine to my winter.
Hopefully some others will come along soon and add their pictures too.

Here are several pictures of the S/D, both on the property, and several from the distance. Also a few of various views from the S/D property and/or rooms, looking off to other resorts. The pictures are from the resort thread in my signature, they are not current, like the past year or so, several may be dated, such as maybe a lobby picture, swan boats or the like. But they do give a bit of the ambiance of the resort.

Thanks so much Dan! I was hoping you would drop by and offer up some of your wonderful pix. I look at yours often with the great music link. It brings happy tears to my eyes every time.

Thanks!

Thanks for al the great pictures, and the ones with music too. I'm doing the countdown and can't wait. Never stayed at the Dolphin before. Hopefully I'll be able to download some after my visit.

We will be at the Dolphin for our 6th visit in 20 days and this thread came out at the perfect time! I can't wait.

Here's a few pictures:

The view from our room on one of our trips:



Fountain in the Dolphin lobby:



Illuminations from our balcony:



The Dolphin as seen walking back home from Epcot:



A word to the wise--Do everything possible to avoid taking a room on the 4th floor or this will be your view:


That's the only time we ever had a room like that--it was only for 2 days so we just put up with it.

Gorgeous pictures! We stayed at the Beach Club a couple of years ago, and one of my nieces fell in love with the looks of the Dolphin resort. She thought it looked very pretty and loved the fish on top. Can you tell me if the grotto pool closes down at night the way SAB does at the Beach Club? I'm supprised at the pics with no one in the pool at night, it looks so inviting!

I think it is open 24 hours swim at your own risk after the lifeguards go off duty.
