Disney's BoardWalk Resort and Park Accessibility to Parks

Updated on February 19, 2012

Accessibllity to Parks

We stayed at the Boardwalk Inn during a busy time in Orlando, July. Our first impression upon walking on this property was how nicley decorated it was. The front desk staff person was very helpful and even accommodated our early check in at 10 am. The reason we chose this resort was its location and location it has. It was only a 5 minute walk to Epcot and a 12 minute walk to Hollywood Studios. This is a big time saver for those families wishing to get to their detsination rather quickly. I mean after all, we are in Disney.

This resort has nice landscaping, as is typical with all Disney resorts. There are many sitting areas in and outside the resort for guests. There are also three different pools. The largest pool is called the Keister Coaster pool and is more kid friendly than the quite pools in other areas of this resort. The decor theming falls right in line with the old time boardwalk of the East Coast.

Our room gave us a view of the garden and overlooked one of the "quiet" pools. These rooms appear to be quite larger then most other Disney resorts. Our room had two double beds and a sleeper sofa and a large bathroom.

The large pool is nice for kids and those who love water slides, but can get quite crowded, at least at this time of the year. It was least crowded after a storm had passed. The two other pools were nice but did not provide kid friendly activities. However, they were less crowded and oftentimes you would be the only one there. At these pools there were no lifeguards on duty so you must be present if you are there with kids.

As stated before, this resort's feature benefit is its location. Being able to walk to two parks was a time saver for our family and also provided us with some great views of the other areas of the Disney property not typically seen. At this time of year the parks are crowded and waiting for a bus or being crowded in the bus can make for some unhappy people and unruly kids.

Our biggest complaint about this resort was its availability of dining services onsite. Usually we get a mug because it works out well and saves us money. However, at this resort getting a mug can be an inconvenience at best. You have to walk quite a distance and the dining areas where you get mugs close quite early, leaving you frustrated and not able to use them. They also are not self service like at many of the other Disney resorts. If it is busy you could be waiting for quite awhile.

The dining establishments here do not make you feel as though you have your own exclusive dining area like other Disney resorts do. However, the food is spectacula and up to par with Disney standards. We chose to eat at Spoodles for breakfast and it was very delicious. The portion sizes were also enough to feed more than one person if you wanted to save some money. We also decided to do in room dining one of our mornings here and ordered the Family Breakfast. Although it stated it was for 4 people but it seemed like we could feed 8 or more people on it. The price was reasonable for the breakfast and the room service staff was very friendly upon delivery.
