this was the 2nd time we stayed at the Boardwalk. First time was in 1999 and we stayed in one of the villas, this time in the hotel. the room is large, very clean with a lovely decor. As in all Disney hotels, check in is very easy. There are two pools, one is a quiet pool which we used daily. Walking distance to epcot and hollywood studios, boat launch to epcot, swan, dolphin and yacht and beach clubs hotels. lots to do on the boardwalk as well.
