“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

I really loved this inn. It is so nice and room was great. There are 2 pools. One is great for families and quiet one is great for couples.
Location is so amazing - Epcot with all restaurants is just 10 min on foot and Hollywood studios just 5 min on ferry

We stayed in Oct 2012. Top notch Disney Resort. The night time performances on boadwalk itself is fun and entertaining for all ages. All the resturants are great. The quick service is not a sit down place. If you want a sit down or even a place to sit you have to go to one of the other resturants. The food at all of them is outstanding. The Flying Fish will even take resort guest with no reservation. You do have to take a day to get used going outside to the boardwalk to get something to eat but after that you really don't notice. The pool and lifeguards are great. The boat over to Epcot, Studios and Beach Resort is fantastic!! Would stay here again without question.

The Boardwalk Inn is a fine place to stay. Excellent bed, quiet room with a nice balcony and perfectly acceptable furniture. The bathroom is a bit standard, but there is an external doublesink arrangement that worked well.

Services were fine. The room service food was well-prepared and delivered promptly. I was there for a business conference and found the conference center and services excellent.

The only problems with the Inn were its length (one can walk for quite awhile to one's room if far from the reception area) and the internet reception which was slow and spotty in the hotel. The latter complaint is something one can say of Disney as a whole.

That being said, these are very minor complaints. All in all, a fine place to stay at the Magic Kingdom.

Hotel and surroundings marvelous. Proximity to Epcot brilliant, literally 5 minute walk over the bridge. Couldn't have been better. Hotel staff and everything about it fantastic.

Only thing I think is missing for hotel guests is somewhere actually within the hotel (where you don't have to go outside) to eat. Would have been lovely to just get up and go downstairs for a sitdown breakfast, instead of grabbing something quick at the bakery outside and sitting outside (albeit nice water views). For breakfast they do have a very small counter in the hotel (which turns into the bar at night) where you can buy coffee and a bagel, so that's at least something. I think I would have preferred Disney to have a proper restaurant where you could get a buffet though.

After saying that, everything else was brilliant and it was a pleasure to stay there. Cat Cora's restaurant excellent and you must look around the Candy Shop on the Boardwalk. On Friday night we saw the magician which was fun.

Had a standard room which I think was adequate and when going outside the grounds are lovely. There is something about having a lot of grass around when you are staying at a hotel, it felt more normal and the kids could run around.

Room Tip: Just had a standard room on corner of lobby floor. Corner rooms are larger and this certainly was v...

Wonderful resort located within a short walking distance of both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. You can access either park via a walkway (3 min for Epcot, 10 min for HS) or water taxi. The resort is beautiful, ideal for parties with no kids. The boardwalk area offers great restaurants, shopping, and clubs. I recommend Flying Fish Cafe and ESPN Club. Great rooms, and a beautiful resort. My only complaint is that the rooms don't have a microwave or fridge. With all the great food in the area, this would be a great addition.

I am writing from the porch of our room which overlooks the Boardwalk, lawn where Cinderella's coach picked up a bride. We can also see Spaceship earth and the fireworks at Epcot. We can walk to Epcot and Studios or take a short boat ride. The brew pub downstairs had a nice lunch. The pool is neat but too cold for a swim. The lobby is beautiful and right now is decorated for the holidays including a large gingerbread house. The beds are firm. We got a deluxe studio on 4th floor. We have a queen bed, queen pullout plus a daybed and portacrib. There is kitchenette with fridge freezer, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The screen door on boardwalk sells groceries and liquor and coffee is provided. There is a veranda with wicker chairs and rockers just off the lobby. There is a gym and a game room. I will be back.
