Pros: This fun deluxe resort offers the feel of the boardwalk at the beach while enjoying all the fun Disney has to offer. The resort offers a variety of food and entertainment options. Whether you want to play some classic carnival games, enjoy a scenic walk, take in some music with the dueling pianos at Jellyrolls or dance the night away at the Atlantic Dance Hall, the Boardwalk resort has you covered. Situated between Epcot and Hollywood Studios makes this resort a desirable location as it is a short walk or boat ride away. The theme pool with waterslide is another favorite with guests. If you have a larger family or want additional services, the Boardwalk has many options.
Cons: While there are several food options for dinner, the options for breakfast are very limited. The bakery has some grab and go food but if you are looking for something more substantial, you may want to consider another hotel with a food court or make dining reservations for breakfast elsewhere. This resort also shares bus transportation to MK and AK with the other 4 resorts in the area. This is frustrating considering you are spending money for a deluxe resort and have to share a bus when there are value resorts that have dedicated buses. To add to this frustration, this resort is the last stop for pick up and drop offs so the possibility of the bus being full and waiting for another bus is high. As with any deluxe resort, you are paying a premium to have the added amenities that the value and moderate resorts do not offer. Price is often a factor for most families while on vacation.
