“Very Entertaining Resort”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We arrived 9am and the room was ready at exactly 3pm. I personally liked the Boardwalk better then the Beach and Yacht because it did not seem as spread out to get to the rooms, also there seemed to be more nightly entertainment. We stayed in a courtyard view so we were not looking at the parking lot and it was peaceful at night as I read others complained about noise. JIM WHO WORKED IN THE LOBBY near the baggage claim GAVE US SO MUCH INSIDER ADVICE as I was picking his brain on where the best view was as Illuminations. He said when he had guests in town, he makes 730pm reservations at the English Pub and it is perfect each time. He was right! THANKS JIM, you are the best !!! He also enlightened me about the collectors pins and next thing you know I collecting Disney pins...lol. Eat at the FLYING FISH, sit at the counter and watch the cooks! OMG that place was awesome. The best compliment is that staying at the Boardwalk is like staying at the capital for Disneys food as your next to Epcot the entire time. After trying some more hotels, will definitely come back to the Boardwalk.

Room Tip: Court Yard view was great.

This is easily one of my favorite Disney resorts. It's more pricey than many of the others but if you're looking to spend some time just enjoying your resort, this is a great option. The theming of it is perfect and the boardwalk itself is just steps away. There are shops, restaurants, bars, a boat that you can take to Hollywood Studios and you can walk to Epcot from here.

We stayed at this hotel for our first ever Disney vacation and it was an excellent experience.
From check-in to check-out guest service was amazing, staff was very friendly and helpful with all our requests. The room (two double-beds) was nice and very clean.
The hotel is at 5 minutes walking distance to Epcot and 10 minutes to Hollywood Studios which was a nice surprise to us. For the other parks the bus/boat service works very well.

I stayed here while attending a conference at The Swan Hotel. This is a nice hotel located on the boardwalk that has a few other hotels, shops, restaurants and entertainment spots. The hotel is a ten-minute walk from EPCOT and a twenty-minute walk from Hollywood Studios, though boats also travel to both theme parks, and I highly recommend using them, as you will be doing a ton of walking, so ride when you can. Buses will take you to the Magic Kingdom (about a 15-20 minute ride), Animal Kingdom (about a 10-15 minute ride) and Downtown Disney. You can walk to an entrance for Epcot from the hotel - about a ten-minute walk.

Though there are no restaurants inside the hotel, the Boardwalk area has a number of dining and entertainment options, including the Boardwalk Bakery, which has incredible chocolate croissants, an ESPN Zone, the Big River Brewery, the Flying Fish Cafe and a Cat Cora restaurant called Kouzzina. There are also lots of "boardwalk" type food options, such as hot dogs, hamburgers, funnel cakes, and pizza.

Upon check in you get a bracelet to wear which is used to open up the door to your room as well as charge anything on any Disney property and to get you into the parks you paid for. Disney's thinking on this was brilliant -- no need to carry any ID or money when on their property -- just wave your wrist and presto your credit card gets charged. Overall, very nice rooms and the staff were very nice. Bring comfortable walking shoes, as the rooms are quite a distance from the action.

We booked a Disney World vacation for my husband's 60th birthday. We were overwhelmed from the moment we started checking in. The guest service was outstanding! We were upgraded to the Innskeepers Inn. We were personally escorted to the correct elevator and from there the best vacation we have ever experienced. The concierge was superb! The Innskeepers lounge was amazing. The room service was spectacular. Each night we returned to our room with the bed turned down and salt water taffy by our pillow. The hand towels were rolled into Mouse Ears. From beginning to end we cannot say enough about the BoardWalk Inn. Perfect location to walk to Epcot and Disney Studios. We will be returning with the rest of our family and stay at the Boardwalk Inn. Perfection! Thank you!!!

Room Tip: Our balcony faced Epcot. You could sit and watch spectacular fireworks!

Although it was a bit of hike to get to our room from the lobby, the villa we stayed at was wonderful! Great size one bedroom with a comfy pullout for the kids. The kitchenette was a great size for breakfast and lunch and loved having a washer and dryer. Pool view room was nice too.

We are DVC members and have stayed here almost every year for the last 8 years. Having a boardwalk view makes this place the best to stay at Disneyworld. we leave our balcony door cracked open a couple of inches. Waking to the boardwalk music and hearing the friendship boats is wonderful.

The bakery renovation is now finished. It's better (more space for people and a few more choices). But for breakfast they need to have the potatoes available at Beachclub, GrandFloridian, and others.

The one bedroom villa was clean and perfect as usual. Housekeeping was helpful and accommodating.

Back entrance to EPCOT and a leisurely boat ride to the studios, and evening boardwalk activities makes this resort the best.
