Disney's Boardwalk Inn
- What's Included
This was our first time at a Disney resort, and it was wonderful. My husband was attending a conference, and both our room and the meeting facilities were quite comfortable. Although we didn't try the pool, it looked inviting. The staff were all friendly and helpful. Shops, restaurants and attractions on the boardwalk were fun too. Plenty of easy walking areas nearby, to several other properties, notably the Swan and Dolphin, and the Yacht Club.
This is definitely not a luxury resort by industry standards and the decor was tired. The best thing about the Boardwalk is the location. You can walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It is nice to be able to eat and have entertainment on the boardwalk.
We LOVED our four night stay at the Boardwalk for spring break. We were magically upgraded to club level when we arrived, which of course impacted our opinion of the property. But even without the upgrade, the facility is meticulously clean, recently renovated, with friendly staff and an awesome location.The convenience to both EPCOT and DHS was a main reason we chose the Boardwalk. The added bonuses of having the quiet pool outside our wing, and so many shops and restaurants onsite enhanced our stay.The rooms are a generous size, and it was nice to have the couch/day bed in addition to the 2 queens. The bathrooms are beautifully finished. Housekeeping was wonderful. We enjoyed having a view of the EPCOT fireworks from our balcony.Club level was an experience in itself. Staff was friendly, lounge amenities were fantastic, and the food and beverage offerings exceeded all expectations.Disney Magic with Disney Customer Service. The bar continues to be set very high.
Room was spacious but housekeeping was hit or miss. Sometimes we got fresh towels, sometimes they were missing. Sometimes our soap disappeared and wasn't replaced. We had to request more shampoo/conditioner/lotion, but then got a variety of other items one day. Next few days nothing. Our sheets were never replaced and we were there 8 nights. An empty water bottle (not ours) sat in a corner the entire time. Once our water bottles all disappeared but that one was still there.... concierges were all great, very helpful and cheerful. The ones at the desk always asked how they could help and the ones in the lounge always ran to get me my bread in the morning. In the afternoon there was a chef there preparing food but I gave up trying to get anything from him as after the first day I had asked if he had any gluten free items and his answer was "I can call you a chef". Wasn't he a chef?? It was nice there was always wine/beer available and a variety of it. Also soda and milk products plus yogurt in the fridges at all times. They would get you small water bottles from the kitchen if requested. We missed the large bottles they used to refill for the rooms. Those were more convenient. We could watch fireworks from the lounge balcony and see magic kingdom fireworks from our room.We were in a club level deluxe room. The room itself was a corner room that overlooked the boardwalk. It actually looked like it was two rooms made into one. It had two queen beds and a tv with small fridge and coffee set up. Also a small desk and a dresser. Then another part of the room with a full size couch, a chair, coffee table and another dresser with tv. We were told we could request a DVD player with movies but it seemed like a hassle. Why don't they just have them in the rooms?? There are no clocks but I was told that is by request also. A small balcony hung over the boardwalk. Nice to sit and people watch but warning it is noisy. You could hear people all day and into the evening plus the horns for the boats go into the night and started around 6ish every day. Also the air was loud when it would kick on and we mostly couldn't get the room warm! The bathroom area with tub and commode were tiny, and the fan was loud but didn't seem to work. Two sinks were outside the commode with a large mirror. Toiletries were nice (when we got them) and included shampoo/conditioner/body wash, soap, sunscreen plus solar gel. Joe, Jackie, Scott and the rest of the concierge crew were awesome!The walk to Epcot was about 10 minutes and very convenient.All in all a great stay with a few hiccups.
Spent 12 nights in the Boardwalk Inn in March '17. Firstly the hotel is in the middle of EPCOT and DHS. A 15 min walk to the front of DHS and a 10 min walk to World Showcase...not Future World of EPCOT Unfortuantley its 20min at least for rides like test track. In fact you will arrive much later than those who entered through the front and consequently be a long way down in line. On the good to great side. The hotel is beautifully designed and looks brilliant. Nicely themed and the lobby is one of the nicest. The boardwalk, yes real wood, out the back on the lake is very nice and the feeling is an old fashioned resort. The rooms are nice, with views and comfy beds. The bathroom is divided into an open twin basin area (no door) and a small toilet/shower area behind a door. All up the hotel on its own is a 7/10. Unfortunately, and its a big drawback, the transport. Basically the Boardwalk is the poor travel cousin of all the resorts around it. The busses and boats all prefer to stop at the Swan/Dolphin or Beach/Yacht Club and while this is unfortunate at 7pm, its excruciating at 11.00pm when you want to get back from Disney Springs. Or as we found from one resort to another. If you do NOT want to visit Magic Kingdom or Disney Springs stay at the Boardwalk, if you do, stay somewhere else.
