Disney's BoardWalk Villas

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My daughter, granddaughter and I visit WDW twice yearly and we try to stay at Boardwalk Villas whenever possible. The location is perfect because we can walk to two parks and it is only a short bus ride to the other two parks. We especially love the Disney Villas because we have kitchen options for breakfast and lunch. The hotel pool is fantastic and my granddaughter loves it. The food options around hotel and great and we enjoy just walking around the boardwalk outside the hotel for exercise or fun. All in all, this hotel is always our first choice and we have stayed at almost all of the luxury ones at Disney.

We stayed at the Boardwalk Villas the first week of November for the EPCOT Food & Wine Festival. This was our second stay here and I was happier this time than last(and I was really happy last time!). We had a newly redecorated studio. It was very pretty. The dark wood entry complimented the light blue walls & creamy wood work. Our standard view was of the Boardwalk courtyard with a partial views of the Boardwalk. Our request for a room close to the elevators was granted. The staff was friendly & helpful. Mouse-keeping didn't leave us any towel animals (I think because we weren't traveling with kids) but the room was very clean every day & always done quickly. The Boardwalk is a beautiful place inside and out. The close proximity to both EOCOT & Hollywood Studios makes it an excellent option for those who want to be close to the action. My only complainant was that the shower tile & hardware had not been updated in our room. This is really an non issue but it did detract from the overall feel. Also, the refurbishment has removed most of the Disney feel from the room. There are hiddens Mickeys & you'll know where to find them. Don't go excepting Art of Animation level of Disney themeing.

This was my son's first trip to Disney and the location of the Boardwalk was fantastic. The extra money to stay here was really worth the convenience of walking into Epcot and the short boat ride to Hollywood Studios. After the fireworks at Epcot, it was wonderful to just walk back to our hotel and not wait in lines for transportation. Especially with a tired 7 year old. The pools were fun and my son really enjoyed the quiet pool by the clubhouse. The clubhouse had games, crafts and XBox consoles to keep him busy on a few rainy afternoons. We can't wait to go back again.

This was our first time staying on property, and it was amazing! Boardwalk is just a short walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios, our favorite 2 parks. Our room was recently renovated so very nice and a good size for our family of 4. The pool was also a highlight for our kids!

Boardwalk is the ideal location in disney. Staff was friendly, pool was great, and room was clean. What more could I ask for!

Our stay at the Boardwalk Villas was wonderful. We had a very nice suite overlooking the swimming pool, which was just what we had requested. We also enjoyed the jugglers, food, drinks and fun on the Boardwalk and the convenient walkways to epcot and the studios. It was everythingwe hoped.

We stay at Boardwalk Villas twice a year and have a great experience every time. We love the location because it is possible to walk to two parks and its a short bus ride to the other two. My granddaughter loves the pool and slide and we really enjoy the Boardwalk activities and eating places. We won't stay anywhere else.

This is our 10th trip to Disney in 3 years and we LOVE Boardwalk Villas. The rooms are spacious, amenities great, location perfect for walking to two parks and a short bus ride to the other two, pool great fun especially the slide and availability of food and beverages way above average. We have tried 3 other villa locations within the park and even though they also are outstanding we love the situation at Boardwalk the best. Also, Boardwalk and Old Key West seem to offer the best discounts and so we try to take advantage of that. Overall a great experience there---and we are going to stay at Boardwalk again this April.

Always wonderful and magical. Centrally located rooms very nice staff excellent. Stay here every time we do Disney

We were very happy with the hotel's location and amenities. Right outside the hotel were places to have a bite to eat and a delicious bakery. The staff was very helpful and always in a good mood. Couldn't ask for a better experience.

We loved our stay at Boardwalk Villas. We had a 1 bedroom villa rooms are great and the location can't be beat. The staff is always helpful. Would love to stay again. This is a no worry vacation for anyone who loves the small details and easy get around transportation.

The Board Villas are just a short boat ride away from Epcot Center and Disney Hollywood Studios, with not much of a wait. Having 2 older kids, we booked a one-bedroom villa which came with a king in the bedroom and a queen-sized sofa sleeper in the living room. I would've preferred 2 queens and a sofa sleeper, or a king, w/ sofa sleeper and a twin fold out chair (as offered at Animal Kingdom Villas). The room itself was decently clean - just showing signs of heavy traffic over the years. Carpet needed deep cleaning. Problems with dripping shower, plugged sink and broken sofabed frame were quickly fixed. Experienced tropical storm throughout our stay, so I was really glad to have booked a room with in-room laundry facilities. Wonderful, knowledgeable staff throughout our stay.

The hotel room was a little older and not as polished looking as a modern 5 star, however, the room was clean, the bathroom set up was convenient with the sink and mirror separate from the toilet and shower, the kitchenette was very handy to have with a grocery store on the boardwalk just a minute away. Rooms have a balcony overlooking the boardwalk and small lake, or on the other side - the pool area and canal. We could see fireworks every night from our room, but they are better if you are right there at Epcot or Magic Kingdom. The bed mattress had a pillow top- very comfortable. Room had a flat screen TV. Easy walk to Epcot, free water craft ride to Disney studios, free bus every 20 min to other Disney parks and Disney attractions. For $38 you can get a bus to take you to non-Disney places such as Universal Studios or Sea World. The board walk is great, several good restaurants, as well as fast food outlets on the board walk. Nightly entertainment on board walk - magicians, jugglers, etc. There are less expensive hotels, but when you consider the cost of transportation from those places, the Boardwalk Villas which are a nicer place to stay and provide easy, free access to Disney attractions, will likely easily make up for transport costs from elsewhere. Food is expensive every where at Disney including here. I'm not sure about the meal plan, I think it depends on how much you want to eat. If you would like a big restaurant meal every day the meal plan is a good idea. You can live more cheaply on microwaved meals from the grocery store and treats from the bakery and once in a while go to a restaurant for a more extravagant meal. We loved it.

Great time with far more options than time to do. Enjoyed watching NFL playoff game and lunch at ESPN Club, swin and hot tub hotel, and shopping and entertainment on the Boardwalk.

Stayed at 1 bedroom villa on the 5th floor. Great view of the pool and could see Hollywood Studios (Mickey Hat and Tower of Terror) . I don't think any room has a bad view - either see the Boardwalk or the Pool. I would definitely recommend this hotel due to the location. You could walk to EPCOT - less than 10 mins and walk to Hollywood Studios - a little further than EPCOT. It's a great time saver - not having to wait for the bus. We went to EPCOT in the morning and came back for lunch and then went to Hollywood Studios. We went to the fireworks with the kids already in their PJ's and then, they were in bed 15 mins after the fireworks ended! The staff was very nice - always friendly greeting. In fact, the hotel manager gave us a taxi voucher for the airport after we told her our son (special needs) had a rough time with the bus and all the stops and we had to leave very early for an morning flight. I was told that the hotel was just updated about a year ago or so but the rooms still seem dated. You could the wear and tear on the furniture and chipped paint. Also no WIFI which I think should be standard at any hotel these days. Nevertheless, a good choice to stay if you want convenience.

The location was great. The hotel staff, as with all disney cast members, were awesome. The boardwalk area is very very nice and so close to Epcot and Hollywood studios. The room was just average. We had a handicap room and the bed was kind of small. They did offer for us to switch rooms when one became available, but by then it wasnt really worth it. Overall, a great experience and we would definitely stay there again!

Great location for Epcot and Hollywood Studios - easy walk to Luminations - a must see - outdoors to get the full effect. Extra bonus - Good entertainment on the Boardwalk!

When we went to our room at 10:30 p.m. and unlocked the door, it was occupied!! We quietly backed out and went back to check-in. (We had checked in at 11:00 a.m. but the room wasn't ready.) After much discussion (between the desk clerk and someone on the phone), we were offered a better located room and $100 credit on our bill (room was prepaid) so this paid for our breakfast and a little shopping. However, this should not happen at Disney.

My wife and I decided to take a New Year's trip to Disney to enjoy the parks, fireworks, restraunts and fun. We stayed right on the boardwalk at Disney's BoardWalk Villas. We had a very nice Jr. suite (includes a sink, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, basics -- but no stove). Our view was right onto the "square" in the heart of the boardwalk on the top floor. The suite had a quaint balcony that we spend all of New Year's eve on... there was a party in the square that was really fun, and we could see the fireworks from the Magic Kingdom and EPCOT right from our cozy spot. We were within a quick water taxi from EPCOT (which we visited and enjoyed greatly)... and within walking distance of the Swan and Dolphin (the Swan has an AMAZING Italian restaurant and the Dolphin has a Shula's steakhouse... very nice!... and an upscale seafood/sushi place... also very nice). We were also within walking distance of an amazing mini-golf course and the shops and restaurants on the boardwalk are right at your doorstep and also very good and fun. We also went to the Animal Kingdom, Downtown Disney and had a really amazing extended weekend. As a couple with no children, we were wondering how the experience would be, but it was a fanstastic "adult" vacation with so much to so and see... but it also could have been great for kids too. Overall... FANTASTIC!

What I liked most was the location being able to walk to 2 theme parks, Epcot and Hollywood Studios. The hotel itself had lots to offer with an actual boardwalk with food, shopping and lots of fun. The maid service was excellent as was the hotel staff. [...]
