Disney's BoardWalk Inn

Reviewed 22 October 2011

If you're visiting Epcot, this Disney property is close and has very conveniently located restaurants on the boardwalk property. Everything is controlled by Disney and it is a nice, safe environment. This is one of the better adult Disney hotels; there is less for kids to do here and as a result, less kids. There is an ESPN restaurant/bar on the boardwalk and the "celebrity" chef Cat Cora's restaurant (still can't figure out why a "celebrity chef" has to advertise herself as a "celebrity chef" but, oh well ...).

There's a decent bar in the hotel. It's a good thing that you can find restaurants on site because parking your car may involve a long trek back to the hotel. There is valet parking but it is a bit slow. I believe that they just initiated free wi-fi, but check first. The rooms all still have a rate card, but it was free when I visited.

Overall a pleasant stay. The conference facility is neat and comfortable. If you need to be at Disney and are an adult, this is a good spot. If you have little ones with you this is not a bad spot, but you can find more entertaining choices at other Disney properties.

Room Tip: My room had a balcony along the entrance way to the hotel that did not offer much privacy. Request a...

Last December (2010), my mom and I decided to treat ourselves to a Disney vacation. We had been there many times before, but had never stayed within a Disney resort. So, this was a fabulous eye opening experience for us both. We chose Disney's Boardwalk Inn because we both love the "Atlantic City" feel. DBI is decorated beautifully and the grounds are kept beautifully manicured. The rooms are spacious and welcoming. The beds are very soft and comfortable. We had a balcony overlooking a lovely garden. It was very cold in Orlando during our trip, so we did not go swimming. However, we did explore the grounds and the pool is a fun place to spend time. The boardwalk is exciting and offers many restaurants to chose from. Another perk for staying at this resort is you have the convenience of taking advantage of Disney's Transportation Service. We took some buses to the parks, but also took advantage of the ferry system. It's a scenic way to get to some parks and just adds to the Disney charm. In addition, we decided to try the Disney Dining Plan. That was a great decision! The selection of food is great and not having to worry about handling money each time you're going to dine is very convenient, as well. There are other resort options as well, as Disney's Boardwalk Inn can be pricey. However, if you have the money to splurge, do it! It's a great experience.

I stayed at the Boardwalk Hotel at the end of September with some friends and it was a terrific hotel to stay at. The hotel itself is lovely. From the moment we got there we were greeted by a welcome home by staff members. Their goal is to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. The rooms are well designed and the beds very comfortable. We also had a fridge in our room which was very helpful. We had a balcony which faced the Epcot fireworks which were thrilling to watch. Of course the best part of this hotel is the location. It is an easy walk or boat ride to Epcot and a short boat ride to Hollywood Studios. The buses provide transportation to the other parks. There are many great restaurants in the area also and you are so close to Epcot where there are even more restaurants to try. We especially like the Yachtsmans Steak House across the lake iin the Yacht Club Hotel for an elegant meal and for more casual dining France (ground level), and the new pizzeria restaurant in Italy. I would definitely come back to the Boardwalk. For 5 days it did feel like home!

Room Tip: Our room overlooked a courtyard area and was on the opposite side as the large family pool. We neve...

We just recently stayed at the Disney Boardwalk Inn and were completely pampered. Disney upgraded us to the Club Level and it was wonderful! We were met at the front door and taken directly to a private check-in!

There was a continental breakfast every morning with cereals, yogurt, pastries and fruit. They offered a midday snack, but we were never at the hotel to take advantage of this. An evening wine/beer/beverage and snacks was perfect after a full day in the parks and before heading out for the evening. They also had a dessert buffet every night as well and could see part of the fireworks from Epcot.

We received great help in booking reservations for meals and activities. The parks were surprisingly busy for it being off season and was hard to get into dining venues for sit down meals, but the concierge helped us get into the restaurants we really wanted to eat at.

Staff was always very friendly. Housekeeping was great and we really appreciated the bed turn down service!

We love the location as it is easy to walk or take the boat to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. We also found it easy to walk through Epcot to the Monorail and take that to the Magic Kingdom. The only time we took a bus was for Animal Kingdom or Downtown Disney.

Our room had a refrigerator so we were able to keep snacks and water cool. We enjoyed our little lanai and found the room to fit the 3 of us perfectly!

Loved Boardwalk!

The Boardwalk was a great 8 day stay for us this pass week. Our two rooms were perfect. The location perfect to get to Epcot & Disney Studios. The hotel bar is in a very small space and operates on limited hours. If you purchase the drink mugs its not easy to get access to coffee and soft drinks at this hotel. The line in the morning at this bar to get a cup of coffee was very long. I over heard people in line complaining about the line to just get coffee. Any way after a 10 min wait I got two cups of coffee and there no room to pour the coffee into the plastic mugs. I was told for health reason they were not allowed to fill the mug directly. So why sell the mugs? A tip, if you wait a little later in the AM the candy store on the boardwalk has a coffee and no wait at all.

Very few hotels can match the quality of service provided by Disney. We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn from Oct. 2-5, 2011. We were greeted at the front door by a staff member, and because I had checked-in on-line prior to leaving home, we just had to sit down in the lobby and everything was brought to us. We previously stayed at the Animal Kingdom Lodge (club level) several years ago, but we really appreciated the close proximity of the Boardwalk to Epcot and the Disney Hollywood Studios. Both parks are within walking distance, but we enjoyed the water taxi service to both parks. Only one person was not quite as "Disney" friendly, but everyone has off days. Thank you to the staff at the Boardwalk Inn for a magical stay!!
