FROG FAMILY REVIEW
Disney's BoardWalk Villas*

What we love

  • One of the best locations at the Walt Disney World® Resort, with just a short boat ride to Epcot® and Disney's Hollywood Studios® (walking is also an option too)
  • Centrally located, so it's easy to get to all of the Walt Disney World® Resort parks
  • Prime access to Disney's BoardWalk Entertainment District and its fantastic dining
  • Sleeps up to 12 in the 3-bedroom grand villa
  • More relaxed swimming pool area than nearby Stormalong Bay
  • One of the loveliest lobbies, with hardwood floors, chandeliers, and models of a roller coaster and carousel
  • Most villas overlook the gardens or courtyard
  • Renting surrey bikes and riding around the BoardWalk
  • Free parking!

Keep in Mind

  • Hotel charges $33 per night (sales tax included) for valet parking
  • Theming can be lost on children
  • Intricate hallways can be confusing
  • No quick-service dining option, although you will find restaurants at Disney's BoardWalk Entertainment District and Epcot®
  • Deluxe studios only sleep 4 plus an infant in a crib; some of the other deluxe villas sleep 5

Notable Facts

  • One of the best restaurants on property, Flying Fish Cafe, is down on Disney's BoardWalk Entertainment District
  • Trattoria al Forno is the newest restaurant to open along Disney's BoardWalk Entertainment District

Frog Family Tips

  • Stop by the BoardWalk Bakery for breakfast on your way to the parks for the cinammon roll
  • Request a room near the lobby/elevators for less walking and quickest pool access (request upper-level room for less potential noise) (not all requests are guaranteed)
  • Hop over to the International Gateway at EPCOT, just a short stroll away, to ride the Disney Skyliner and get a bird's-eye view of the park

Best For

  • Families, especially larger families, who want deluxe amenities and to be walking distance from Epcot® but away from the hustle and bustle of Disney's Beach Club Resort and its pool, Stormalong Bay

Disney's BoardWalk Villas Information

The waterfront has never been quite so charming as in this relaxed, cottage atmosphere resort. Studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom villas combine with the elegance of a bygone era to recapture all the fun, excitement and timeless appeal of the coastal villages of the 1940s. The quaint, seaside mid-Atlantic feel is accentuated by all the shops, vendors and the glittering excitement of the nearby boardwalk. And Disney's BoardWalk Villas are located within walking distance of Epcot® and a boat ride to Disney's Hollywood Studios®.

Deluxe Villas go above the traditional hotel room and the one- and two-bedroom Villas come with a full kitchen, spacious living and dining areas, separate bedrooms for added privacy, and a washer and dryer. The Deluxe Studio features a kitchenette and sleeper sofa, making it a great option for smaller families or shorter stays.

General Walt Disney World® Resort Benefits

Staying on-site at an Official Walt Disney World® Hotel gives you several great complimentary benefits, including free transportation and more. 

The Frog Family absolutely loves staying on-site not just for the fun themes and Disney atmosphere of the hotels, but also for the convenient amenities. Some of the other complimentary benefits include:

  • Convenient Proximity - You can easily go back to your hotel from the parks if you need a break or want to relax at the pool. It's just as easy to head back to the parks after relaxing at your hotel for a couple of hours.
  • Free Park Transportation - Overnight self-parking at the hotel is free and depending on which Official Walt Disney World® Hotel you stay at, you'll have access to the Disney Skyliner, monorails, water launch and/or bus transportation. Many of the Official Walt Disney World® Hotels are also within walking distance to the parks and other resorts.
  • Early Access to Dining Reservations - Disney Resort guests can make Advance Dining Reservations (ADRs) for their entire vacation 60 days in advance, giving them the earliest access to the most popular restaurants such as Cinderella's Royal Table and Be Our Guest.
  • Free Wi-Fi - When staying on-site, you'll have access to complimentary wi-fi, available in your room and select public areas, such as the pools, arcades, restaurants and more.
  • Recreation and Fitness Activities - Disney Resort hotels offer a variety of wellness activities through Disney Family Wellness. Some favorites include dancing to Disney songs, family fun walks and, yes, even pickleball!
  • Travel Light with MagicBands - Guests of Official Walt Disney World® Hotels can check out MagicBands that let them into the theme parks, unlock their Disney Resort hotel room, link Disney PhotoPass photos, make purchases and more – just with a tap of their band! Disney Resort hotel guests also have the option to purchase a MagicBand+ at a special discount before they arrive for their stay, allowing them to be an interactive part of the magic.
