A Love Letter to Disney's BoardWalk Inn

Picking a favorite Disney Resort is tough. We’ve stayed at several and I love each one for a different reasons. So here is a love letter to Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. Not necessarily my favorite resort, but it’s somewhere I treasure.

Disney's Boardwalk Inn

We stayed at Disney’s BoardWalk Villas for the first time a couple of years ago and really liked it. We’ve also visited the BoardWalk several times. But during our last stay something just seemed to click and I looked at the resort differently.The Cast Members, starting with security and valet, we’re so nice and helpful. We also had a great conversation with the Cast Member who checked us in. It was also a beautiful morning and the lobby looked gorgeous.

After we checked in we headed down to the Boardwalk Bakery for breakfast. It’s always been a favorite spot (especially since the refurb) and enjoyed sitting by Crescent Lake. There were two theme parks within walking distance of us and I didn’t want to leave!

Later that afternoon we headed to our room for the first time. It was love at first site. The decor at the BoardWalk Inn really was never my favorite but the refurbished rooms look great.

And just when I thought I couldn’t love the place any more we discovered the beautiful garden area and Garden Cottage Suites. Have you ever watched Notting Hill? Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant’s characters sneak into a garden that is meant just for the residents around it. That’s what this garden felt like. And we certainly didn’t feel like we were in the middle of a theme park. I can’t believe it took us so long to explore this area

Each cottage had its own gate and little garden. The entire area just invites you to sit and enjoy it. The morning we took to explore it we saw several guests just sitting on their patios taking it all in. It’s definitely a place that makes you stop and smell the roses.

I know I’m gushing but seriously folks, that stay was a magical. And everything has been wonderful ever since. From the Christmas decorations to the coziness of the Belle Vue Lounge, it’s hard not to love this place.

    I love the Boardwalk as well. I have not been fortunate enough to stay there but I do love the atmosphere. It really makes me feel like I am in the 20’s. It’s such a nice place to break away from the crowds and hecticness of the parks! Good call!!!
