Disney’s Boardwalk Villas are part of a larger Disney resort complex containing Disney’s Yacht Club Resort and Beach Club situated on Crescent Lake and fronted by Stormalong Bay. The entire resort area encompasses Disney’s Boardwalk, Boardwalk Inn, and an entertainment and shopping area designed to reflect the atmosphere of resorts on the Atlantic coast in the 1930s. Villas are part of the Disney Vacation Club and offered as timeshares to vacation club members and as rentals to any guests subject to availability. Disney Boardwalk Villa rentals are located within walking distance from Hollywood Studios and Disney’s Epcot Center with a second option of a boat ride from the resort’s transportation depot. Buses whisk guests between the resort and Animal Kingdom, Typhoon Lagoon, and several other Disney attractions.
Disney’s Boardwalk Villas
Studios and three types of villas comprise Disney Boardwalk Villas. Studios begin the list, offering space for four and a small child. They have small kitchenettes, private patios or balconies, and small dining sets. Amenities such as wet bars and mini-fridges eliminate the need to shop every day. One- and two-bedroom villas are similar, differing only in square footage. One bedrooms are 712 square feet with space for four and two bedrooms are just over 1,000 square feet with space for eight. Villas have fully fitted kitchens and many other conveniences. Grand Villas provide 2,000+ square feet featuring ample space encompassing three baths, three bedrooms, and a living room. Two balconies offer views of the Disney Boardwalk and Crescent Lake. Disney Boardwalk Villa rentals offer tons of extras create a luxurious setting for families to relax in.
With any rental, guests enjoy many recreational options. Cruise the boardwalk or grounds on a bike rental or visit the Community Hall for family-friendly activities and games. Two-hour Bass Fishing Excursions are possible via the marina. Watercraft rentals, a health club, and playground are located within the resort topping off a huge list of things to do, more than most Disney World hotels.
Two pools are offered to guests of Disney’s Boardwalk Villas. Luna Park Pool is the themed pool, featuring a 1920s-style amusement park filled with almost 200,000 gallons of water. Another feature is the pool’s waterslide, built to resemble an old-style wooden roller coaster. Beverages and pub-style fare are offered at the pool bar, styled after a carousel. The other pool is for guests looking for a quiet place to swim. This second pool is less than half the size of the main pool but also attracts less than half the guests the main pool sees.
Dining options for guests of Disney’s Boardwalk Villas are shared between the three resorts. American cuisine at the grill and brewery presents many famous dishes and micro-brews in a casual, relaxed environment from morning into the wee hours. The sports bar is another dining venue open late, designed traditionally with large monitors and offers plenty of pub favorites. There are also dining choices available along the boardwalk, which is one of the nicest places to dine and stroll.
