Be convenient to everything.

Great hotel. Beautiful view. So much to do and see. Took the boat to Epcot, but we could have walked. Saw the fireworks from Epcot from our patio. It was on my bucket list. I did a split stay. Stayed at Caribbean beach for half of my vacation to save money. Indulge!

Excellent, relaxing, fun hotel

We had a wonderful stay at the Boardwalk Inn. Staff is very helpful and courteous. Everything was clean, no noise in the rooms. Enjoyed having a balcony to use and relax. Lots of dining and entertainment options available at the hotel and nearby. Epcot and Hollywood Studios parks within walking distance on nice paths. Used the running trail for a nice morning jog a few times. Would definitely recommend and looking forward to our next visit!

Best Location in Disney World!

Just returned from a quick 3 night stay at Disney's Boardwalk Inn. We arrived early (at 10:00 am) and we were greeted outside the doors, whisked inside and our room was already ready. Our room was spacious, well kept and clean and had a lovely garden view. The resort is in easy walking distance to Epcot and a short boat ride from Disney's Hollywood Studios. The area around the resort is lively and fun long after the parks close. If I had any complaint it would be the distance of our room from the main lobby and the lack of food venues INSIDE the resort (you have to go outside to the Boardwalk itself). Other than that, it was great!

The hotel was everything (and more) it said online!

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: Poor breakfast
Hey, we are a Disney family. We go twice a year. This is the first time we have stayed at one of Disney's "upper" hotels. It was worth every bit of what we paid. The room was outstanding--- large, comfortable, and themed. The location to EPCOT and Hollywood Studios can't be rivaled. We had a short walk to the parks.... no buses! We also enjoyed the entertainment nightly on the boardwalk. There was music and street performers. We now have a new favorite hotel!

Great location!

My first time staying at a Disney hotel and my first vacation to Disney World since I was a kid. Loved the location. Right next door to Epcot and a 10 min walk to Hollywood studios. When I checked in, I was treated to an upgraded room. I stayed in a nice 2 story cottage room looking out at the gardens and the quiet pool. Also, it came with concierge service which meant free food! The room had a small kitchen, two bathrooms, a living room and a master bedroom with a large master bath. The master bath had a giant whirpool tub and a TV! There was almost no one in the quiet pool so I spent hours in what felt like my own private pool. The hotel is currently being renovated but I didn't notice the noise much. Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom were a short bus ride. The parks were pretty un-busy. I didn't have to wait in any lines for longer than 10 minutes. Most time there was no wait at all. This was the perfect time of year to go. The Boardwalk was great. I rented a bike and I rented a speed racer boat. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the hotel and the location. Staff was friendly and the place was clean. Highly recommended.
