Date Submitted: 04-03-2012Page: Disney Resorts -> Disney's BoardWalk Inn
The Boardwalk is made up of the Inn, a 'traditional' resort hotel and the villas, DVC units.

I've stayed on the Inn side, which by Disney standard is very small with only around 358 rooms and (non DVC) suites. This is a deluxe resort and the rooms are larger than the moderate and value rooms, with a mix of 2 queen beds and a day bed (sofa bed) or 1 king bed and a day bed (sofa bed).

The rooms here are categorised as water/boardwalk view or standard view. The standard views range from overlooking the front of the resort (i.e. parking lot) to garden view (overlooking the inner gardens of the Inn which are beautiful), there are however a few undesirable views overlooking the rear of ESPN, these should be avoided (!), some of the garden view rooms have the added bonus of a view of illuminations.

I've had rooms overlooking the garden and the boardwalk and found both special in their own ways, I've never had a 'noise' problem overlooking the boardwalk.

The location of the Boardwalk is one of its major selling points, if Epcot is one of your favourite parks, as it is mine, being able to stroll in and out when you like is fabulous, especially when Illuminations finishes.

The walk to Hollywood Studios is a pleasant 10 minute walk, although it's best to avoid in the heat of the day (if you're travelling in high season).

Of course if you don't want to walk, the boat provides an efficient transfer to/from Epcot and Hollywood Studios.

There's a good selection of restaurants not only on the Boardwalk itself but also at the other Epcot resorts and Epcot.

In addition to the main themed resort pool which is located on the DVC side of the resort, there is also a 'quiet' pool in the beautiful inner courtyard gardens.

Although this is a Disney resort I've found the Boardwalk Inn to have more of an adult 'feel', maybe it's because of it's size it therefore seems quieter than other resorts. It's a great resort and whether you're a family, adult couple, or a solo traveller, the Boardwalk has something for everyone.
