Disney Boardwalk Villas

The Disney Boardwalk Villas provides plenty of opportunities for fun and excitement. Guests of this Disney Vacation Club Resort can spend hours playing at the pool, gaming it up in the arcades, or they can find interesting activities to take part in at the resort's community hall.

Disney's Boardwalk

At night, the Boardwalk comes to life with live entertainment in the form of shows from street performers like jugglers, and magicians dazzling young and old alike with magic acts. If you want to take a more active part in the fun, try your hand at the midway games that are available at a nominal cost.

With so many things to do and to experience at the Disney Boardwalk Villas, you might not even want to venture out and into one of Disney's theme parks but if you do, the Boardwalk Villas is centrally located between the back gate entrance into the Epcot Center theme park and Disney's Hollywood Studios. Guests can walk to both of these parks or take one of the water taxis otherwise known as a friendship boat that can be accessed from the boat launch located on the boardwalk.

Disney Boardwalk Villas

Just like the other Disney Vacation club resorts the rooms at the Disney Boardwalk Villas are available in several different sizes. The smallest room is known as a studio unit and the largest is called a three bedroom grand villa. A studio unit can sleep up to four and three bedroom units can accommodate up to twelve people.

These home-away-from-home vacation club rooms have more to offer than regular hotel rooms. To see everything that these rooms at the Disney Boardwalk Villas have to offer, please see the detailed list at our Disney Vacation Club Resorts page.

Recreation and Activities

It has been our family's experience that if the children are not kept busy, boredom sets in quickly. One would think that spending the day in one of Disney's four theme parks would satisfy their need to go and do, but even after running around in one of the parks for 8-10 hours the children still want to know what they will be doing next. Although mom and dad may want to relax a bit, the children want to keep busy.

The Boardwalk Inn and Disney's Boardwalk Villas has become our favorite resorts because both offer plenty of activities and entertainment opportunities that will keep everyone busy so that we never have to hear the children say "I'm bored." Listed below are some of the ways we like to keep busy.
