We stayed in a two-bedroom condo at the Boardwalk Villas for 5 nights in May. It's basically a one-bedroom attached to a studio. We are a family of 5, but it could easily sleep 8. The villas looks like it was recently renovated with newer furniture, drapes and bedding. The pull-out couches are the new ones that just pop right open with new memory foam mattresses. The kids said they were the most comfortable pull-outs they have ever slept on.
The location was great to get to Epcot (5-minute walk) and a 20-minute boat ride to Hollywood Studios. You can actually get off at the Swan/Dolphin for the first boat stop, walk across the bridge and beat the boat back to Boardwalk. The buses to Animal Kingdom and Magic Kingdom take a little longer, but having the extra space for our family was worth the farther distance to these parks.
Overall the resort is beautiful, you definitely feel like you're in a Deluxe resort. There are several sit-down restaurants, including an ESPN Zone. But like other reviews state, there isn't a good cafeteria style quick service restaurant. The bakery is the closest thing and the service there was slow and selection was limited.
The kids loved the pool and the waterside. There was poolside activities in the afternoon, which was nice for the parents to enjoy a drink from the bar and relax a little.
We would definitely stay here again. Ask for a villa or room near transportation, we had quick access to the busses and boat dock and it was great.
