Blog Image

Posted on November 25, 2022

A Disney timeshare resort provides wonderful accommodation options with all of the magic that you would expect from Disney. Most of the resorts that are part of the Disney Vacation Club are located in the Disney World theme park complex in Orlando, so we’ll delve into which Disney timeshare resort is best for your central Florida vacation.

One of the big benefits of a Disney timeshare vacation is the preferred status you’ll receive as a deeded owner at your favorite resort as well as the option to holiday in other DVC resorts in the network. Trips to Disneyland in California and beach vacations in Hawaii, Hilton Head and Vero Beach can also be in your plans, along with using exchange provider Interval International to choose from 3,200 resorts around the world.

Since the non-Orlando resorts are fairly self-explanatory, depending on your preferred destination, let’s take a look at the unique qualities of the Disney timeshare resorts in Orlando:

Disney's BoardWalk Villas


What’s it Like at Disney's BoardWalk Villas: The villas are part of Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, so you’ll have the spacious DVC villa accommodations along with the amenities in the Inn. The waterfront location at Crescent Lake really comes alive at night with street performers, jugglers and entertainment options unique to the destination. 

What are the top things to do at Disney's BoardWalk Villas: The swimming pool area is carnival-themed after New York’s famed Coney Island, with the resort featuring a 200-ft waterslide. Three pools in all – plus a children’s pool – provide plenty of options to cool off. Stop by the Flying Fish for some of the best seafood at Disney World.

What are the accommodations like at Disney's BoardWalk Villas: Villas come in a variety of sizes from studio units to one-, two- and three-bedroom villas. Units come with either a view of the Boardwalk, garden, pool or standard view of the resort grounds.

What makes Disney's BoardWalk Villas stand out? The location right on the Disney Boardwalk, which is also within walking distance to Epcot and the Disney Skyliner gondola system.
