Disney's Boardwalk Inn
- What's Included
We were a little early for our dinner so we had drinks and a few appetizer plates at the Anracadabar. The decor was cozy and fun. Our 13 years old granddaughter didn't feel out of place either. The service was excellent. There were seven of us and I added tip, didn't realize they took 18% gratuity already😎
I loved this hotel. There are a couple of flaws, but it was mostly great. Let's start with the bad then we'll focus on the many good things. The bad---We traveled with our 5 month old son, and we booked a studio villa. We were given a connecting room, which makes the walls very thin. We were woken up every morning with the kids next door screaming and their TV. I'm sure the people we shared the wall with could hear our baby crying when he was hungry or tired. With all of the money we spent, I would imagine that they could have given us something better than that!The busses sometimes took a long time. A bus to Disney Springs took almost 2 hours (wait time to Disney Springs)---this may not be the fault of the Boardwalk, but Disney World as a whole. If this is not the Boardwalk's fault, then forgive me!The good---this resort is beautiful! The staff is friendly, the walk to Epcot is easy, the boardwalk itself is a great addition to the resort. Also, the pool looked fun, and a big bonus was that the elevators were fast! The rooms were also comfortable and spacious. Overall, I would stay here again, but I'd request a quiet room.
The Boardwalk Inn opened in 1996 in a white-painted Colonial style inspired by the historic seaside districts of the Northeastern United States such as Coney Island We had a spacious complex with three double en-suite bedrooms, which were planned around a large well-furnished lounge/dining space and kitchen, with a terrace on which we could sit, overlooking the lake. These facilities were excellent, but there was a cherry-picker outside the windows, which started work on external decoration around 9am, which slightly spoilt our stay, although I appreciate that maintenance has to be done. . Also, there were no teabags in the kitchen - a common problem of American hotels and resorts, but having stayed in other Disney resorts which supplied them, this was a disappointment, which, to be fair, the Concierge resolved quickly with housekeeping. There are plenty of shops and eating areas along the lakeside boardwalk and square, though the Bakery was a little slow with anything that needed to be made to order, rather than just picked out of the counter, such as our breakfast rolls, and the serving staff seemed to be a little uncoordinated. Although there are pools and play areas for children, this is more a resort for adults rather than families with young children.
The staff at the innkeeper's club were friendly and helpful, always greeting us with smiles. A few bring that personal touch. Linda goes the extra step by making sure you are well taken care of at anytime of the day she is there, and Anita's smile, personality, and laughter made our trip joyful and even more memorable. Pete was so very helpful. Thank you Disney staff.
We like to try different resorts in the area for fun and out of all the hotels we just adored this resort. The theme of old Atlantic is so cute and done very well, down to the details. There is plenty of entertainment and restaurants and of course transportation to the Disney parks by boat or bus. The room was very clean and extremely spacious. The best part was watching EPCOT's fireworks so close on the balcony at night.
