....what ever your needs are! JK. We actually have one that we think is the best hotel to stay at for an all-around vacation. But which one is it! We'll start off telling you which ones aren't it.
JK again. We won't drag this on. The best hotel is The Boardwalk Inn and Villas!
Let us make our case. Location is EVERYTHING at Disney World. Because it's so big it requires a lot of driving or busing. Nobody likes to do this. The bus lines are long and cramped and if you just miss the bus then you have to wait another 15-20 minutes. The less busing and driving you have to do the better.
The Boardwalk Inn and Villas location is prime to bring down your busing time. From the hotel you can walk to EPCOT in 5 minutes and to Hollywood Studios in 10 minutes. That's two out of the four theme parks you don't have to bus to!
Here's a secret: After you walk to EPCOT you can take the monorail to Magic Kingdom. 3 out of 4 parks now. We're on a hot streak!
Unfortunately that's where our streak ends. You do have to bus to Animal Kingdom but so does every other hotel.
Outside of location we love The Boardwalk Inn and Villas for all the entertainment that surrounds it. The boardwalk has tons of restaurants, ice cream shops, games, and activities. Plus, they have some of the coolest and funniest shows put on each night by several magicians and entertainers. Our favorite is Coney Island Chris. Super funny show and a must see! Bowling, biking, boardwalk games, piano bars, dance halls, and more can all be found here!
Outside of entertainment the views are just amazing. You can see most of the firework shows from the boardwalk area, you have amazing views of the lakes and other resorts, and lots of walkways and gardens. Speaking of other resorts you need to head over to the Beach Club Resort for some ice cream at Beaches and Cream.
The hotel itself features some really great pools with waterslides and kids play areas. There are quite pools and pools with bars. The lobby and lobby's balcony are great places to sit and relax and enjoy the nice weather.
The staff is great and very attentive. There's a great gift shop for all your little needs. Down on the boardwalk they have a bigger merchandise store that also serves fresh baked goodies.
We could go on for hours but I think you get our point. Much love to the Boardwalk Inn.
