Disney's Boardwalk Resort
This Disney Deluxe Resort and Disney Deluxe Villa Resort is built around an entertainment complex reminiscent of turn-of-the-century Atlantic City. This “seaside” inn features shingled roofs, private courtyards and New England-style gardens.
Disney'S Boardwalk Inn
Beautifully appointed rooms, shingled rooftops, private courtyards and magnificent gardens combine to recreate the charming atmosphere of romantic bed-and-breakfast inns found along the mid-Atlantic coast of the 1940s. Plus bustling nightclubs, restaurants and shops at Disney's BoardWalk entertainment district, adjacent to the Resort, recapture the fun and excitement of bygone waterfront villages and shorelines.
Compared to other Deluxe Resorts, Boardwalk is small with only 352 guest rooms. Standard rooms are 434 sq. ft. and accommodate up to 5-guests plus one child up to age 3 in a crib. All rooms have two queen-size beds, or one king-size bed and a daybed. The vast majority of rooms offer a full-size balcony as well.
Guests choosing Club Level accommodations at the Inn Keeper's Clubs receive personalized concierge service and lounge with continental breakfast, midday snacks and evening wine, hors d’oeuvres, cordials and desserts.
Disney's Boardwalk Resort has a wide-array of suites ranging from 1 and 2 bedroom suites and a garden suite. Garden suites come with a private garden and are quite magnificent if your budget allows for one.
Location and Transportation
Within walking distance to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Water launch service to Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and other select Disney Resort hotels. Bus service to other Walt Disney World Resort locations.
The main pool at Disney's Boardwalk Inn can get crowded during midday breaks. There's 200 ft long water slide resembling an old wooden roller coaster and two leisure pools. One of the leisure pools located in the back of the Inn side of the hotel (towards Epcot). It's very quiet there and since not many people know about it. The clown theme of the main pool is definitely an odd design choice for Disney. It's a little freaky looking - enough to frighten some children.
Disney's Boardwalk also has health club, tennis, fishing, bike rental, arcade, and recreation activities including Disney movies under the stars and a running trail.
