Disney's BoardWalk Villas
Ranked #52 of 340 Hotels in Orlando
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 January 2013

We have been DVC members for 10 years and returned to the Boardwalk Villas to the same warm welcome and unbelievable hospitality. I just looove the huge couch in the entrance and the carousel in the lobby. The boardwalk-themed hotel is set on a lake with convenient transportation to Epcot by boat, foot or bus. It is also fun to just walk the boardwalk and snoop in the boutiques or try one of the wonderful restaurants.
The 1 bedroom suites are wonderful with a small kitchen which is so convenient when you have enough of restaurant food.
The pool has a huge water-slide where the kids fly out of a clown's mouth and there are fun pool-side activities organized every afternoon.
I would return anytime.

This resort has amazing ambience and walking location to EPCOT and the Studios. The rooms are nice but not the best or the DVC properties as the newer ones are a bit nicer. This time we had a view on "the green" which is a garden view. It was great because we had a fireworks and slight Boardwalk view. The service here is top notch. They need more casual sit down type places in this area as there is only the bakery. Would give it 4 1/2 if that was an option.

Love the location of this hotel. After 10 times at Walt DisneyWorld, we have stayed quite a few places and yes, you do pay more for a great location, which means less time waiting for a bus and more time enjoying your vacation. We don't usually use all the amenities (they have too many to mention) but we love being able to walk to Epcot and DHS, as well as grab a bite at one of the many restaurants on the Boardwalk. If you can swing it, a Villa is the way to go, as the kitchenette (we get a studio) will save you a ton by having breakfast and snacks in the room. Every time we stay somewhere else, we find ourselves asking "Why didn't we stay at the Boardwalk?" Once you stay here, you'll ask yourself the same thing!

I stayed here January 2013 for the first time as a DVC owner. I was kind of worried because I didn't really like how the rooms looked in photos, and I know the villas really lag behind the regular rooms with regard to renovations. However, I was really pleasantly surprised. I stayed in a studio, which I would suggest for parties of 2. The sleeper sofa just didn't look that great.

My room was very clean and a nice size. We had a boardwalk view room which was amazing. If you can afford it, definitely splurge. The views of the boardwalk and Yacht/Beach Club were incredible. We slept with the blinds open, and I loved seeing all the lights and the Epcot ball from my bed.

The pool isn't my favorite in Disney, but it's definitely very cute for kids. The location is one of the greatest features. Having all the restaurants there on the boardwalk, a quick walk to HS and Epcot, and being able to walk around the boardwalk to the other hotels at night was just wonderful. I can't wait to stay here again.

The BoardWalk Villas have a great location - you cannot beat being able to walk to Epcot or the Studios or take the boat. The resort is very large and the lengthy hallways can appear to be daunting. The BelleVue Lounge is a piece of great Disney theming. Stop by and check it out. The whole theming of the resort is unique and full of neat nooks and crannies.

Room Tip: Try to book a room with a view of the BoardWalk. It is a nice view at any time of the day.

I was always told Disney service was the best. Well that's not what I received from this very expensive hotel. I was polite but the front desk was not. Not only do they not know their own policy for checkin time, they straight lied to me. For $700 a night ill go somewhere else. Disney management better get this under control.

Disney's Boardwalk Villas is the best location in Walt Disney World. Walking distance to both Hollywood Studios and Epcot. The shops, restaurants and entertainment just add to the overall experience. The pool is good but Disney's Yacht club has that category locked up with Stormalong Bay.

We are DVC members and own at Saratoga Springs. We have never stayed there because we love staying at the Epcot resorts area.

There were a few issues. 1. our room wasn't ready at 4:00 pm but they made up for that with an inconvenience refund. 2. At check out (11:00 am) we received two phone calls ( one at 10:30 and the next at 11:00) from someone who hung up as we answered. I can only assume it was housekeeping checking to see if we were still in the room.

Here are a few recommendations:
1. Use the hotel ammenities such as concierge services. They make your trip BETTER.
2. Buy the resort mug. Fill it up every time you leave. It saves money
3. Add room location requests to your reservation. It never hurts to ask for what you want.

Enjoy your stay at this incredible hotel.

Room Tip: This hotel is huge. If you don't like walking long hallways or stairs, request a room near the e...
