“Great hotel, great location.”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

This is my second time staying here. We choose it for several reasons. The ability to walk (or take a boat) to EPCOT and Hollywood Studio's is great. The hotel itself is beautiful and clean. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Several nearby choices for dinner. Great pool.

My wife and I were attending the EPCOT Food and Wine festival and the Boardwalk Villas provided nice easy access to all the festivities.

Check-in was painless using the online process. Our room was ready; on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool. We had a studio with a small wet bar, mini-fridge, microwave, toaster, some utensils and paper plates. Unfortunately for us, the previous guests or the housecleaning had turned the fridge off and water was all over the inside from defrosting - this is highly unlike Disney! Overall the room was very nice/clean with a queen size bed, sleep sofa, table for 2, separate bath/toilet area independent of the sink/vanity. We had a nice view overlooking the swimming pool and to our amazement was actually fairly quiet.

If you truly want to experience "Boardwalk" nightlife ask for a Boardwalk view. The place comes alive during the evening with "Boardwalk" type entertainment. It does get noisy sometimes into the early morning hours! If you prefer the quiet, ask for a room with a pool or garden view. These cost less.

The nicest elements of staying on Disney Boardwalk property is it close proximity to Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. Each are within walking distance or a short boat ride. EPCOT, walking along the Boardwalk is about a 10 minute walk to the back entrance by England. Hollywood Studios is about a 20 minute walk along the waterway.

One drawback of staying here was the bus transportation to Downtown Disney, Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom. It seems there are 5 resorts assigned to this particular bus route and they are PACKED on many occasions to standing room only. On two occasions, the Bus took well over 30 minutes from Downtown Disney back to the Boardwalk.

Overall a very nice stay - only wished we had a few more days to enjoy the Food and Wine Festival.

Room Tip: Ask for a Boardwalk view for the entertainment at night, if you prefer a quiet night, ask for a gard...

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these Villas!! We stayed in a one bedroom Villa and it was perfect!! Queen sized sleeper sofa in the living room for the kids and a king sized bed in the bedroom for us. Two bathrooms, 2 balconies, the room was clean and comfortable. And as usual the service at Disney was impeccable. The Boardwalk resort has such a fun atmosphere and it was nice to be able to stroll along the boardwalk at night or during the morning. We will definitely stay here again!!

We stayed at an efficiency and a one bedroom both with pool views. Both rooms were fantastic. Clean and the theme was very beachy/boardwalk. We loved the easy walk to Epcot. Loved boat accessibility. Loved being able to walk to boardwalk for food and to see entertainers. Great great location. We will be going back in May with entire family.

Enjoy a visit to Disney World and stay at the Boardwalk Villas, waterfront property. Many of the villas have views of the gardens and pool areas, or their Boardwalk view villas face the waterfront. While staying here you and your family can enjoy walking around the Boardwalk, taking a boat ride to Disney's Beach Club Villas, Epcot, or Disney's Hollywood Studios. Our family has enjoyed the Luna Park Pool with a great slide, as well as having fun while riding bikes on the boardwalk. Other activities included campfires, movies under the stars and activities offered at the community center. We have stayed here many times, as one of our home resorts, and our favorite times of the year are during the holidays. We really enjoy Easter time when there is always a great Easter Egg Hunt on their lawn that faces the waterfront. The Beach Club Villas are another favorite place to stay while visiting Disney World. This December we are really excited about staying at the new Disney Grand Floridian Villas, which is now another one of our home resorts. Of course, we will be enjoying the New Year back at Disney's Boardwalk. Your stroll around the Boardwalk can take you to many great restaurants and the recently renovated Bakery. This area has so many nightly activities that your family will enjoy. If you haven't had a chance to stay at these great villas, take the time to do so and I am sure you will return in the future.

I really thought I would have a better reviews but everything went downhill. We first stayed in the Beach Club which we really enjoyed but it looked like the Boardwalk was amazing. Because we were going down on my birthday and my parents anniversary we decided to stay in a villa. When we arrived first, we were surprised that the villa's look much bigger in the pictures they put online. Something we could get over though. We were also told we were going to lose power all night long until 5 am. Then came the bad. Before we booked I had asked about the pull out couch, seeing I have very bad arthritis, and they said they are very comfortable and if not they will help us. I tried out the couch and it felt like I was laying on a bed of nails. I called the front that night which they said there is nothing they can do. I asked to switch rooms or even pay for a two bedroom villa which they replied there is none, they are completely booked. They said they could give me an air mattress instead to put on the floor. I paid almost 7k for a villa and they expected me to lay on the floor. I tried again in the morning and got the same result. I had to call my travel agent so they could take care of it and finally they put a mattress from a bed on top of mine. Finally I was able to sleep. Come to find out they had many rooms they could have moved us to, including other resorts we looked at. Just when we thought that was over, we went to use our key card to pay for gifts and were told we have a 100$ limit on our card. The man called the hotel and they said it was put on by mistake. It was completely embarrassing. Even the housekeeping seemed pushy to get us out of our room. Lastly when we returned from our trip, we found out the hotel sent our bags on a flight before us so our baggage was sitting in our airport for hours. Overall we will not be returning to the boardwalk and will be staying at the Yachts Club. For guests that are willing to pay you more money and have given you a lot of business, you should be more accommodating and not have to go through our travel agent to get things done.

We stayed in a one bedroom standard view at this resort. The room, resort, and staff were superb. The only gripe I have is our room was near the entrance to the resort which could be noisy at times. Other than that, the convenience was great to walk to epcot and studios or take a water taxi. It was also nice to just sit near the lake and watch people go by and have something to eat. Lots of restaurants to choose from on the boardwalk, good variety. The bakery is a must. Staff were all helpful and friendly. The pool area was nice for kids, with a clown rollercoaster slide. they also have a quiet pool. we were able to walk to beach and yacht clubs for meals also. All in all, recommend this resort highly!!!

Room Tip: ask for a room near the elevators, it's somewhat of a walk to the end of the hallways.
