Complete Guide to Disney’s BoardWalk Inn (w/ review)

Complete Guide to Disney’s BoardWalk Inn (w/ review)

Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is a Deluxe waterfront hotel on Walt Disney World property that’s located in the Epcot Resort Area.

You’ll find theming that embodies the turn-of-century Atlantic City and the pastimes of Coney Island. Disney’s BoardWalk Villas, a Disney Vacation Club Resort, is also located on property.

As a Deluxe Resort at Disney World, BoardWalk is one of the more expensive hotels on property and offers different amenities compared to Value and Moderate Resorts.

The resort is also in the middle of much-needed upgrades that will mean dealing with construction and some outdated spaces until it is complete.

Overall, this is a resort with charm and amenities that will be even better when it’s done in the coming years. In the meantime, you may find nearby resorts a better option with comparable perks and at a similar price point.

That said, here’s everything you need to know about BoardWalk Inn.

Pros and Cons

Pros: 10-15 minute walk to Epcot, some rooms have views of Epcot and Hollywood Studios, can take a boat or walk to Hollywood Studios, gorgeous theming, Disney Skyliner station nearby

Cons: No restaurants inside the resort (have to walk out on the BoardWalk to get to them), shared buses can sometimes mean long commutes, can be long walks to rooms (especially Villas rooms)

Overview

Resort category: Deluxe

Resort area: Epcot

Address & Phone Number
2101 North Epcot Resorts Boulevard
Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830-8442
(407) 939-6200

One of the big perks of staying at BoardWalk Inn is it is within walking distance to both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Don’t worry, complimentary Disney transportation is available (including Skyliner access), but to be able to walk to to parks is a huge bonus.

There are also several high quality dining and entertainment options. 

Another positive of BoardWalk Inn is the boardwalk itself. You can walk up and down an actual boardwalk that not only offers stunning views, but has shops and dining readily available for guests.

boardwalk resort inn

On the con side, a lot of the resorts shopping and dining are outside so if it’s raining or super hot, you’ll have to walk out there in the elements for most everything. 

The buses are also sometimes shared which can make it take awhile coming and going. 

The long hallways often mean long walks to the rooms, so be sure to request to be near an elevator to help alleviate some of that.

The resort is on the pricier side compared to many other hotels featured on property, so keep that in mind. But, the theming, rooms, amenities, and more might be just enough to persuade you to book a stay.

Here’s what to expect.

Guest Rooms and Bathrooms

There are a variety of types of rooms to book at BoardWalk Inn. Depending on which room you reserve, you can sleep anywhere from 2 to 9 adults.

Checking In and Out

When it comes to checking in and out, you have a few options: at the front desk, online through the official Walt Disney World website, or via the My Disney Experience app.

boardwalk resort lobby

The front desk is located in the main lobby. Even though the front desk is there to assist guests, especially with checking in and checking out, all Disney World Resort guests are encouraged to check-in online or by using MDE.

  • Checking-In: After you check-in online or using the app, you’ll receive a room-ready notification via next. You can then use your MagicBand or MDE’s digital key feature to unlock your room door.
  • Checking-Out: Currently, guests will automatically be checked out of their rooms. You can also check out directly in the MDE app. But, if you have unresolved charges to your hotel folio, you’ll need to visit the front desk.

Note: Guests also have the option of to chat virtually with resort Cast Members via MDE for any assistance.

The lobby is perfectly themed. There is plenty of space to sit down and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smell. One of the many gift shops at the resort is also located near the lobby.

Note: Resort Airline Check-In and Magical Express are no longer available.

Package Delivery & Pick Up

You can have packages and groceries delivered to your Disney Resort hotel, along with shipping select items home.

Disney used to have a service where you were able to purchase items in the parks and then have them delivered to your resort’s gift shop. However, that service has been unavailable for several years now.

Parking

Although parking at Disney World resort hotels used to cost a nightly fee for resort guests, Disney has changed their policy so that parking is now free for all on-site resort guests. This change was implemented on January 10, 2023.

Valet parking is also available for $33 per night.

Complimentary standard self-parking is available for non-resort guests exploring dining, shopping, entertainment, and other experiences during the day.

We also have a complete Walt Disney World parking guide you can browse.

Important: Valet parking might not always be available.
