We just returned a couple days ago from BWV. Stayed in villa 4134, a 1-Bedroom Garden/Pool View. I had requested a Luna Park view but ended up with a view of the Leisure Pool (we pretty much always get this view when booking a Garden/Pool view).

From living room balcony, a "tree" view:

From the bedroom, nice view of the pool:

Nice pics, thanks for posting. Looks like they need to trim the trees a bit.

We tend to be behind a tree wherever we stay at WDW these past few years. The trees have really matured since the resorts opened. I agree they need trimmed, not sure what their protocol is for that.

Any recommendations for 1 BDRM Villa locations?

We are traveling in 12 days, two people in our group have mobility issues so I am wondering if I should request a particular location? This is our first stay at the Boardwalk Villas (or even the Boardwalk) so would love to get some opinions on the best location. Thank you so much for taking your time to share your thoughts!

SO excited!!!

You might want to request close to elevators as I believe there's only one set for each wing.

Ditto that. The hallways are LOOOONG. Ask for close to elevators and say why, too.

We've been at both ends of the hallway, and while they are certainly LONG, they aren't too bad.

I'd recommend asking for a room near the elevator as well. Ground floor may also be a good thing to request as there are difference access points to the resort from the pool and parking lot.

JMHO, but first floor comes with more convenience when the focus is on Epcot, DHS and the Boardwalk than closeness to elevator. Had the luck of having both, but would rather have the last room on first floor than right around the corner on the 4th floor and needing an elevator to get literally everywhere (read; can take more than one try at some times and those doors are WAY to quick in shutting)

Does it really work that way? Doors closing, windows opening, can you really allways count on that? I'll just continue to wish, hope and pray to make sure. Knock on wood, one, twice and trice. Still can't believe it, I really get to visit Mickey again..........


Always keep wishing, dreaming and hoping.

Beyond greatfull for so many WDW trips, dear friendship and even a dlrp wish trip in october 2014 to close the Disney chapter. Lifes come and go, memories last for ever.

We had a ground floor room at the BW and because it was on the other side of the Boardwalk restaurants, we had to go up a floor, down a hall, and then down a floor every time we wanted to get out to the Boardwalk. It was the only negative about the resort. It would have been better to stay on the second floor.

Thank you for the villa view photos! I'm going to see if I can fit them on the first page, or at least link to them here

Just got home a few hours ago... already miss our deluxe room. Hoping to book a late summer 2013 stay at BWI. I think their CL staff is the best on property.
