One of our favourite places to stay at Walt Disney World is the Boardwalk Inn & Villas, it sits on Crescent Lake, nestled between Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Guests can stay at the Inn or the variety of villas. Today’s post is going to show you pictures and give you details of the 1 bedroom villas found at this fantastic Deluxe resort.
There are five floors of villas at the Boardwalk, the villas on the main floor have patios and the villas on all the other floors have balconies. There are a variety of views from over looking the Boardwalk, the Luna Park Pool, the Community Hall & Pool, Croquet Court and the garden. All of the villas are located on the Western side of the resort, giving you quick access to the Hollywood Studios pathway and the resort’s feature pool. There is one elevator for this whole area of the resort, making the stairs a necessary way of exit if you find your villa a hike from the elevator.
When entering your 1 bedroom villa you’ll have a decent size closet, perfect for princess costumes, rain jackets, and dinner jackets for that nice dinner at Le Cellier. There will also be a set of hooks and a mirror, to check your makeup before leaving for your day at the Magic Kingdom. This entry way is the perfect spot for storing your stroller during your stay.
You will then enter into the main living space which has the kitchen and a living room of sorts. The kitchen has a double sink with garburator, a full size fridge, a stove with stove top and a dishwasher. In the cupboards are cups, plates, glasses, and mugs. In the drawers are utensils and pots and pans. And there’s of course a coffee pot with some Joffrey’s coffee filled filters. The kitchen has a bar with stools, giving you more places to accommodate breakfast and lunch eaters.
The rest of this area has a circular table with two cushioned chairs, a sofa bed, a club chair, coffee table, TV and dresser. This room also has its very own balcony, disconnected from the balcony off the master bedroom. The sofa turns into a double bed. Very comfortable. We slept on one during our last vacation, while my mom stayed with us.
Off of this room is the Master bedroom and the main bathroom. The main bathroom has a stand up shower, a sink, a toilet and mirror. With a nice shelf lining one of the walls you have plenty of place to keep toothbrushes and make up. The bathroom has two doors, one takes you into the main room, the other leads you in the master bathroom. This main bathroom has the only toilet in the villa.
The Master bedroom has it’s own bathroom with a soaker tub, a sink and large mirror. Giving you another place to get ready while another guest is showering up for the day. The vanity has many drawers and cupboards. Lots of places for storage. In this Master bathroom is the largest closet in the villa. It’s a walk-in, providing space for luggage and other big purchases. This is also where you’ll find the safe.
In the bedroom itself there’s a king size bed, another TV with a dresser. Two bedside tables, one with a lamp. A chair and bench also make up this room. The master bedroom also has its very own balcony, perfect for nights when littles go to bed early and you want to enjoy the noise and entertainment below.
The villas can sleep 4, officially, 5 if you require a crib or playpen. We bring a toddler size blow up mattress which accommodates another little. These villas give you the feeling of home while on vacation. With conveniences of a fully functioning kitchen you can have a relaxed breakfast before making your way to the parks. On our last vacation we picked up a pizza from the Pizza Window on the Boardwalk and brought it back to our room. With the round table and the bar stools, we had plenty of room to enjoy the pizza without getting greasy hands on the beds.
The room also has a washer and dryer, with detergent. The large space allows lots of room for hanging out laundry if you don’t want to throw them in the dryer.
We will keep coming back here. We love the decor and being in the middle of the action, of Hollywood Studios and Epcot. When we stayed here on our last vacation we used DVC points and found they were very good value. Boardwalk falls in the middle of the resorts for point value. It’s also less points than the neighbouring Beach Club Resort. Our first day here we enjoyed the Luna Park Pool, eating at the Bakery, watching Pinocchio in our room and then taking a stroll around Crescent Lake. These villas give you ample space to spend time at your resort without feeling crammed. You will feel like you are at a home away from home. Happy Planning, Friends.
