    In your opinion, is it worth the extra points to get a boardwalk view at the Boardwalk resort?

    Hiya, Brad! Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with another great planning question! 

    I am so happy to see that the magic is calling you, Brad, and you are answering the call by planning another magical adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. And with a stay at Disney’s BoardWalk Villas?! How exciting! BoardWalk Villas is one of my very favorite Disney Vacation Club Resorts and one of my Home Resorts. With its lively vibe, oh-so-fun pool (with my favorite pool waterslide in all of Walt Disney World Resort), endless nearby dining options and location in EPCOT's backyard and within walking distance of Disney's Hollywood Studios, it really is the perfect home away from home right in the middle of the magic. Now, let's chat about the views!

    My short answer is a resounding YES. I absolutely think that a BoardWalk View is worth the extra Vacation Points, and this is one Resort view that I always splurge on if I have the opportunity. Nothing is better than sipping your morning coffee while overlooking an empty BoardWalk and a serene Crescent Lake with nothing but the soft sounds of 1920s music, birds singing and the Friendship Boats in the distance. There is no better way to start the best Disney day, and watching the amazing nighttime entertainment on the BoardWalk from the privacy of my own balcony is the most enchanting way to end the evening.

    When you book a Villa with a BoardWalk View, not only are you ensuring an incredible view, you are ensuring your room's location near the dining locations and all of the BoardWalk fun. And did you know that the Points per night for BoardWalk View are the same as Pool or Garden View?! I find that the Point difference between a Standard View Villa versus a BoardWalk View Villa is minimal and worth every pixie-dusted Point. Happy booking!

    I hope this helps with your decision, Brad! Wishing you another most magical and memorable adventure! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have along your planning journey. 

    Adventure is out there!
