“Disney World Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

First time we stayed at The Boardwalk as DVC members, our Villa was overlooking the Boardwalk, we loved the view; this is a wonderful resort if you love convenience and location. You are within walking distance of World Showcase, a quick boat ride to Disney Studios and you have so many shops and restaurants outside your back door.

I would recommend this Disney resort with a "Buyer Beware" clause; the bus rides to and from Downtown Disney and the Waterparks can be quite lengthy. On 3 different trips back to the resort from Downtown Disney, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach we had wait and travel durations of 100, 100 and 120 minutes. The swimming pool here is not up to standards in comparison to other Deluxe Resorts at Disney; somewhat disappointing.

Our family is torn between this resort and The Beach Club on our next vacation to Disney World.

Room Tip: We loved the Boardwalk View

I stayed here 6 nights for a work conference. didn't use many of the facilities as I was working. Did have a day to go to Hollywood Studios and was fantastic that I could walk there. Stayed at Port Orleans on a personal holiday before and this is supposed to be a better resort but the rooms were practically the same. Nice and clean but the smallest bath. As always with Disney the staff are super friendly. The broadwalk has a good selection of shops and the 24Hr gym would have been useful had I not been so tired to use it. If staying again for work the swan and dolphin rooms looked nicer for the same price.

I stayed for a week at Disney's Boardwalk Inn with my family and we loved every minute of it. Our room was very nice, very clean, good size. It even had two small balconies, one faced the pool, the other faced a fountain. The beds were very comfortable and with 2 queen beds, we had 4 pillows on each bed, with an extra in the closet. Our room had a separate vanity area with 2 sinks and plenty of towels. There were drawers to put our clothes in, and a closet with hangers and adequate room for everything. There was even an ironing board and iron. The small refrigerator was good for cooling bottled water overnight.
On the boardwalk, (the actual boardwalk, not the hotel) there is a restaurant called Kouzzina (owned by famous chef Cat Cora) which was fabulous. Greek inspired food, and great bread to dip into olive oils. For breakfast, you must try the salmon, it was so delicious.
We liked the location of this hotel because it was close to Epcot. The busses are a great convenience, they take you to all parks and resorts. They can get very crowded, though and you may have to stand. This hotel seems to be on the end of every bus route, we had some long bus rides. But still better than driving, or walking after a long day.

Room Tip: Our room was very very far from the lobby, so we had a looong walk to our room at the end of a long...

This hotel is definitely a luxury, upscale hotel and the 2nd time I have stayed. Very clean and welcoming, and the boardwalk is wonderful. The view is beautiful, and the kids' pool has a slide and is very fun for them and even adults. They do have an adult pool as well in another location.
The boardwalk is a replica of the old Atlantic city and is very neat to see. Lots of shops and places to eat. You can ride the ferry to MGM and Epcot and the buses can take you to any park you wish. You should note that the Boardwalk is the last stop on the way back so the bus ride can be long. One thing I wanted to mention - we ordered room service/ in room private dining.It looks great on the menu, we figured it would be around $50 close to going out to eat for what we ordered. However, then you charge 18% gratuity automatically and also $3 per tray that is brought to the room which is crazy. The ironic thing about this though that I felt I would mention… if I am going to pay $80 (for something that I could get at any upscale hotel for $40) then you would think they would actually toast the toast instead of bringing a toaster to have you toast your own. I thought that was very cheesy and not worth near the price we paid for toast. Next time, I’ll bring my own bread and just ask the front desk to borrow a toaster. :) However, the hotel is nice. Just don't do room service.

We stayed here for my sisters birthday as a party of 8 adults. The rooms we had were all we could have asked for and the location was easy for access to all the parks and restaurants. We hardly used our car the whole 7 days we stayed. The second pool was great for some quiet time to relax as there was no children as they had the larger family pool. Suited us as only adults in party. Whole resort was very clean and well run. Will be back. We have stayed here at least 3 times before and always enjoyed our stay

Room Tip: For a quiet room ask for one overlooking the river. If you want a more busy view get a room overlook...

This is the same price as the yacht club but the yacht club seemed to have more food and drink on the club level. Also, for the club level at boardwalk you have to constant,y walk through the doors/concierge desk and I felt like I kept interrupting them when I made constant trips back and forth. Not sure but it may be that Disney is cutting back-- sizes of the H2o bath ,products were smaller than last year. Surprised that they did not have Pellegrino sparkling water although the staff was very accommodating when we asked for soy milk. Overall for $550 a night for club level (after the 35% discount) it is an expensive place to stay but very enjoyable. Staff was wonderful all around. Stayed for 5 nights with our family. Room is big enough for 5. You can see the Epcot fireworks from the balcony and both Epcot and Hollywood studios are a short walk. Excellent jogging trails and the boardwalk pizza place makes an awesome vegan spinach and shroom pizza.

I have stayed at the various Disney resorts on many occasions throughout the years and this is by far the best. We stayed on the Club floor and couldn't have been happier. My daughter and her family travelled with my husband and myself and we were assigned adjoining rooms near the lounge. The rooms were lovely, clean and spacious, although the bathroom was a bit on the small side. The balcony was lovely, overlooking the Boardwalk. The staff was exceptionally accomodating and made us feel very very comfortable. The resort is within walking distance of Epcot and there is a ferry as well. We were very happy with our stay and would certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the lounge. It's great to grab a coffee and go enjoy it on your balcony.
