Disney World - Dolphin Resort

The Walt Disney World Dolphin is a resort hotel designed by architect Michael Graves located between Epcot and Disney-MGM Studios next to Disney's BoardWalk Resort area. The Dolphin, which opened in June, 1990, is joined to its sister hotel, the Walt Disney World Swan (also designed by Graves) by a palm-tree lined promenade splitting a lagoon. While located on Disney property, the resort is operated by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide under the Sheraton Hotels brand.

The Dolphin and Swan share similar whimsical elements, but each has a distinctive appearance. The Dolphin is composed of a 27-story triangular tower bisecting a 12-story rectangular mass with four 9-story wings on the Swan-side of the structure. The roof of each half of the main mass is adorned with a 56-foot tall Dolphin statue. On the main colored facade there is a turquoise banana-leaf pattern echoed by a similar wave pattern on the Swan.
