Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel Review

Dolphin Hotel Back

As mentioned in an earlier post about this year's vacation to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida we are staying during week 1 at Disney's BoardWalk Villas.

In the spring we write articles about our experiences in Walt Disney World, including the Walt Disney World Buses, Disney World Dining Plans and of disability access in the Theme Parks and accommodations.
