BoardWalk Villas VIP Top Tips


This section is sponsored by the Disney experts at The Magic for Less Travel, Authorized Disney Vacation Planner

The Villa building is very large. Those villas closer to the parking lot are a shorter walk to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Bike Riding: Rent a bike or surrey to ride around Crescent Lake.

This resort is conveniently located between both Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Epcot. Take the boat or walk!

The Belle Vue Lounge is a wonderful place to relax and have a small breakfast (pastries, coffee) or enjoy a drink in the evening. It’s quiet and calmer than poolside.

Leaping Horse Libations also has a wonderful vibe, great margaritas, and non-alcoholic choices, too! They also have a nice lunch and dinner menu, and they take the Disney Dining Plan.

The best part about the BoardWalk is the evening entertainment. We love to circle around the performers and watch some old-fashioned fun. Card tricks, balancing plates on sticks and juggling knives … it might sound old-fashioned for an electronic generation but every time we stop to watch we see that the kids around us are fascinated. It doesn’t cost a dime and it’s a great way to relax after a long day at the parks.
