Boardwalk Inn

:beach:“Under the Boardwalk”:beach:

 

After having a relaxing breakfast in my room, sadly it was time for me to pull up stakes and leave the wilderness behind. :worried: But happily I wasn’t traveling far, as my new home for the next three nights would be the lovely…

 

 

Every time that I’ve stayed at the Boardwalk Resort (which have been many), I’ve always had The Drifters song, “Under the Boardwalk” run through my head.

Ok, sing it with me, folks…

“(Under the boardwalk) Out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) We’ll be havin’ some fun
(Under the boardwalk) People walking above
(Under the boardwalk) We’ll be falling in love
Under the boardwalk, boardwalk”

Though I didn’t fall in love with my baby under the boardwalk, I have fallen under the spell of the Boardwalk’s charms. :cloud9: This no doubt is partly due to the fact that the Boardwalk was my very first Disney resort…and as they say, you never forget your first. ;)

 

Let’s take a look inside, shall we?

 

 

 

 

 

I love this “book”end table…

 

Though the room that I had been assigned was not ready, they were able to find me one that was. However, it was a very long walk from the lobby, especially since I had all my luggage in tow. When I finally did get to my room I was very surprised to discover that they had given me a room with a king size bed…

 

 

Hmm…a (no doubt much sought after) king size bed for just me, myself, and I??? :confused3 Rather odd, but I was not going to haul my luggage back down to the lobby to get another room assignment so KING it was. :thumbsup2

Some more pics from inside the room…

Since I’ve never been one to pay extra for a room with a nicer view, my standard room views at Disney World have often been of either roof tops or parking lots. So I was happy to find this view when I went out onto my balcony…

 

Those are the lovely Garden Cottages down below and to the left was the Inn’s quiet pool…

 

Not bad for a standard view, right? :thumbsup2

My next order of business was to find a short cut to the lobby. I had noticed an exit door very close to my room so I decided to give that a try and see where it might take me. When I opened the door at the bottom of the stairs I was pleased to find myself by the walkway in front of the cottages. Of course, I couldn’t walk by these without taking a few photos…

The garden/landscaping around the entrance to each of the cottages was unique…no two were the same. I would sooo love to stay at one of these one day, however given their minimum price of more than $800/nt (weekday, value season) it is highly unlikely that that will ever happen. But who knows, maybe I’ll win the lottery…of course, that would require that I play the lottery, wouldn’t it? :laughing:

Anyway, after taking the photos I made my way to the main building and walked through the lobby and back out the door towards the dock to catch a boat…

…because, believe it or not, it was almost time for me to eat again. :laughing:
