Check out pictures of the Disney Boardwalk Grand Villas below.

Note: There are two layouts for the Disney Boardwalk Grand Villas.

One layout of the Disney Boardwalk Grand Villas with three bedrooms has two stories and the other layout of the Disney Boardwalk Grand Villas has one story.

There are two pools at the Disney Boardwalk Villas: a kid-friendly pool with a slide and a hot tub and an adult pool near the recreation center.

We personally LOVE the kid-friendly pool. The pool at Disney Boardwalk has plenty of chairs, daily pool activities for the kids, and a great outdoor restaurant/bar with drinks and food.

There are four main options for Grocery delivery at the Disney Boardwalk Villas: Garden Grocer, InstaCart, Walmart Delivery, and Amazon Fresh.

We used Amazon Fresh to have our groceries delivered daily at the Disney Grand Villas and had a great experience. The groceries always arrived on time (within the 2-hour window) and delivery is free with a $35 minimal order.

When your groceries arrive, Amazon Fresh will deliver them to the bellhop at the Disney Boardwalk Resort.

Once your groceries arrive, the bellhop will call you to pick them up downstairs in the lobby or offer to deliver them to you.

Transportation: How Far Are the Disney Boardwalk Villas from Each Park at Disneyworld?

Want to be close to the parks?

The Disney Boardwalk Villas are our favorite place to stay (maybe tied with Ft. Wilderness and the Disney Beach Club) because the Boardwalk Villas are so, so close to everything!

Disney Boardwalk Villas to Magic Kingdom Transportation

13 min ride by bus

Note: It’s WAY better to take the free bus from the Disney Boardwalk Villas to Magic Kingdom than it is to drive. The bus drops you right out at front, vs. having to park and then take the monorail or the boat to the Magic Kingdom entrance.

Disney Boardwalk Villas to Epcot Transportation

7 min walk

6 min boat ride (if you don’t have to wait for the boat)

Disney Boardwalk Villas to Hollywood Studios

Disney Boardwalk Villas Walking Path to Hollywood Studios
Disney Boardwalk Villas Walking Path to Hollywood Studios

20 min walk

20 min boat ride

Yes – you read that right. It’s the same amount of time to walk from the Disney Villas to Hollywood Studios as it is to take the boat. I tested it twice with my family. 😊

Disney Boardwalk Villas to Disney Animal Kingdom (DAK) Transportation

13 min drive by car

Tip: If you have a car, drive to Disney Animal Kingdom vs. taking the free bus. The bus returning to the Boardwalk from Disney Animal Kingdom can sometimes be a long wait (e.g., 30 minutes).

Plus, the bus returning goes to the Yacht Club and the Beach Club before going to the Boardwalk.

Disney Boardwalk Villas – Entertainment Options

The Disney Boardwalk Villas have entertainment for kids throughout the day, a kids recreation center, a dueling piano bar next door, and a dance hall too.

Summary – Review of the Disney Boardwalk Villas

In summary, I love staying at the Disney Boardwalk Villas with my family every 2-3 years.

Disney Boardwalk Villas is within walking distance of both Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and it’s a short 13-bus ride to the front entrance of Magic Kingdom.

The 3-bedroom Disney Boardwalk Villas comfortably sleep 7-8 people, the living room in the 1-story Boardwalk Villas is quite spacious, and the kitchen includes a fridge, microwave, and stove (perfect for meals in the room, delivered by Amazon Fresh).

Plus, the Disney Boardwalk Villas have plenty of amenities to keep you busy if you are not in the parks.

The pool at the Disney Boardwalk Villas is great for kids, the adult pool is perfect for relaxing, the gym is well-maintained and open 25 hours, and there are plenty of activities for kids throughout the day.

Plus, the Disney Boardwalk Villas are within walking distance of many restaurants on the boardwalk as well as quick-service restaurants/stands selling hamburgers, salads, and hot dogs.

The Disney Boardwalk Villas are also on a beautiful boardwalk for walking around the lake and within walking distance of a dueling piano bar and a dance hall that is open on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 8 pm-1 am.

If you can afford it, you will love the Disney Boardwalk Villas.

My mom usually has trouble sleeping at hotels, and even packs her own foam pad when she travels.

The mattresses at the Disney Boardwalk Villas is so comfortable that the didn’t have to add her own foam pad to the mattress.

The number for the front desk at the Disney Boardwalk Villas is (407) 934-2175.

What are the drawbacks of staying at the Disney Boardwalk Villas?

I personally love the Disney Boardwalk Villas, but here are a few potential drawbacks:

1. One set of elevators at the Disney Boardwalk Villas

The Disney Boardwalk Villas have one set of elevators, so you may be waiting for quite a while for the elevator.

2. More than 5 Min from Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Unlike Disney’s Contemporary Resort and Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, you are a 13-minute bus ride from Magic Kingdom vs. a quick monorail ride.

3. The balcony rooms may get loud

There are activities on the boardwalk at night, so sometimes the entertainment is loud below and goes until 10 pm.

Plus, you will hear the fireworks from Epcot at night each day.

And please, please, please DON’T stay at the Disney Boardwalk Villas during Disney Marathon Weekend, which is in January. You will get woken up by fog horns and clapping starting at 4 am if you stay at the Disney Boardwalk Villas in a villa by the boardwalk.

4. The furniture is a bit outdated

The mattresses at the Disney Boardwalk Villas are the most comfortable mattresses you will sleep on (I promise – my mom is picky, and she slept well), but the furniture seems to be a mix of odds and ends at the Disney Boardwalk Villas.

Our room looked like it got the odds and ends of furniture from the Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge and the Disney Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.

5. The Disney Boardwalk Villas are expensive

The Disney Boardwalk Villas are a deluxe resort and expensive to stay at, so be prepared to fork out the DVC points and the wallet if you want to stay at the Disney Boardwalk Villas.

What other Disney resorts should I consider for Disneyworld?

If my family didn’t stay at the Disney Boardwalk Villas, I would choose the Disney Beach Club or the Disney Ft. Wilderness cabins.

My sister loves the cabins because they are quiet, and it is so peaceful in Ft. Wilderness. I personally am not a fan, as I like being on the Boardwalk and near the action.

The Disney Beach Club is also close to Epcot and Hollywood Studios, and I love their pool and the style of their rooms.
