Walt Disney World Dolphin

The Dolphin is really an impressive structure. My complaint with it is the location. I think this is one of the few major blunders Disney made in WDW. They put the Swan and Dolphin, which are both really tall structures, so close to EPCOT. I don't like looking at the World Showcase nations and seeing these huge hotels behind them. I think they should have been designed either shorter, like the Yacht and Beach Clubs so as to not stick up above the nations, or moved to another part of the property. What happened to the entire concept of show?? This is definitely bad show….

The Geek's Thoughts & Suggestions

I just wish they could move the hotel far from EPCOT's site lines….

In September 2012 I was went to dinner at Shula's Steak House for the first time. Not sure why but I never seemed to make it there. Some friends invited me so I went. The meal was great! Its pricing is on the higher end of the dining scale, on par with California Grille, Yachtsman, etc.. The steak I had was one of the best I have gotten at WDW. That trip I thought it was better than the one from Yachtsman.
