Wonderful resort on Disney property. While I don't recommend going in June unless you love the heat, we had a wonderful trip. The room had been recently renovated and we couldn't have asked for a better view. Will definitely stay again and recommend to all. Food options need a little working on, but otherwise great stay.

Our favorite resort on site. Beautiful grounds, friendly staff. Close to EPCOT and HS and the skyliner. We love to just sit and relax on the Boardwalk. A nice quiet place away from the parks. There is always something going on. Movies on the lawn for the kids. Make your own smores. Wonderful resort.

My family and I stayed at the Boardwalk Villas as part of our DVC trip to Orlando recently. This is definitely one of the best located resorts on Disney property given that you can walk to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios from here. The rooms have recently been refurbished and are really nice, there's still a little bit more refurbishment taking place but it didn't disturb our stay. The boardwalk itself comes alive in the evening with plenty to do and places to eat. There is a great pool with a slide and lots of space to sunbathe. Highly recommended and we will return. Read less

This is a late review but just wanted to share that Boardwalk Villas was a great base for our hotel stay at Disney World. The laundry in the room was helpful for the hot, sweaty July weather. The pool is fun. The furniture is old but the rooms are being renovated, and maybe have been by now. Most of all, this hotel is not as crowded as a place… Read more

The Good: location is one of the best - easy walk to Epcot, walk or boat to Hollywood Studios, access to other resorts with easy walk or boat ride.

The Good: location is one of the best - easy walk to Epcot, walk or boat to Hollywood Studios, access to other resorts with easy walk or boat ride. We like this area, stayed in the Beach Club once before for the same reason. Also good - our room. Recently renovated so it included a lot of modern conveniences (outlets with USB plugs), and was well appointed overall. The overall essence of an East Coast Boardwalk is perfectly captured throughout this resort - well done Disney. The Not So Good: not enough food options. They closed the micro brewery and bakery, and while a new bakery is under construction there just aren't enough food options. We saw a sign one day for a food truck but never saw it again after that one day - leaving you with only a few food options outside of pricey restaurants. Also no room service which is a disappointment. Also not so good - because this property also has conference facilities, you're mixing business people and vacationers, which just feels odd. My preference would be to better separate them, especially given the limited food options. Tip: allow plenty of time for everything you do. The property is big, and your room could be a 10 minute walk from any food options. The limited food options also get very busy, and unless you make reservations far in advance the restaurants are unavailable - we never got to have dinner in the Italian Restaurant people rave about.
