We recently got a chance to tour a newly remodeled room at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn at Walt Disney World. Take a look with us:
Remodeled Room at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
When walking through the hallways of BoardWalk Inn, you’ll see some touches that foreshadow the theming of the rooms themselves. This light fixture features the Sensational Six: Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Donald, and Daisy. They are all wearing some sort of turn-of-the-century headwear, like Mickey in his top hat. This is fairly reminiscent of the theming we have seen at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort in the past and is a nice touch.
Upon entry, the bathroom is directly to the right.
A dual vanity, complete with H2O+ products that are still hanging on, sits across from a closet.
Inside the closet, there are hangers as well as extra bedding.
The door to the toilet and shower room features a full-length mirror.
There is a tiled tub/shower combo with a sliding glass door.
The shower also has H2O+ products mounted to the wall.
It is worth noting that this room is an awkward size and shape, and as a result, is larger than the typical room most guests will receive. It also creates a lot of extra space that isn’t consistently accounted for.
This room sleeps up to five, with two queen-sized beds and a single sleeper sofa.
The headboards are a yellow and blue plaid pattern.
There is a center bedside table as well as floating shelves on either side of each bed for device storage and charging.
The outlets in this room are updated with one USB-A plug as well as a USB-C plug.
On the wall near the beds, there are some portraits of Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto in their turn-of-the-century garb.
Even Pluto looks sharp with a bow tie on his collar.
Themed vent covers are thoughtful.
This tall coffee station seems to be a hold-over from the prior room style since the countertop on it doesn’t match any of the other counters in the room.
Inside the cabinet is a mini-fridge as well as a safe. In the drawer at the top, there are K-cups for coffee as well as cups, lids, creamer, and sweetener.
The dresser under the television has drawers with the same honeycomb pattern as the bedside table. The pattern seems a tad out of place against the rest of the room. The dresser has more outlets, with another set of USB-A and USB-C plug-ins.
The sofa does convert into a sleeper, but only as a single.
Some framed artwork sits on the wall above the couch, featuring Mickey, Minnie, and Goofy on the BoardWalk. Goofy is juggling while riding a unicycle; a tip of the cap to the street entertainment guests can find in the evenings at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn.
If you look closely, you’ll notice that at the end of the BoardWalk, the ESPN Club is still pictured in this painting. The Cake Bake Shop is currently under construction replacing the former ESPN Club, but in this depiction, the building still features advertisements for the ACC Network as well as the iconic barbell.
This lamp has “hidden” Mickeys that disappear when the light is off.
Room views at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn have been reclassified to either “Resort View” or “Park View”. This room had a Resort View.
The curtains feature the same Sensational Six silhouettes that we saw in the hallway.

In addition to Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, there are also Disney Vacation Club rooms at Disney’s BoardWalk Villas.
