    We are planning a trip using the play, stay and dine package. We are trying to decide between two options, Boardwalk One Bedroom Villa or a standard club Level Room at Boardwalk Inn. What are the advantages/disadvantages of each?

    Hi Kimberly,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am so excited to hear that you are taking advantage of the Play, Stay and Dine Package for 2019!

    Since your package will include a dining plan, I think your decision will depend on how your family plans to navigate the theme parks. Last summer we stayed in a standard Club-level room at Disney's BoardWalk Inn and we had the deluxe dining package. The room was comfortable for our family of four (two adults and two tweens). We absolutely loved the Club-level access but, honestly, had too much food with our deluxe dining plan. If you will have the Disney Dining Plan, however, the Club-level room may be a nice supplement during the day. We also enjoyed having access to Disney Signature Services with our Club-level access. Keep in mind, if you are planning to stay at the parks all day and night, you would miss some of the Club-level experience.

    If you choose the one bedroom villa at Disney BoardWalk Villas, you will gain the separate bedroom and living/dining room areas. Villas also include a washer/dryer. We typically wash our clothes three times in one week. For us, this decision might come down to the importance of having access to the additional food and beverages in the Club-level lounge or the washer/dryer in the villa.

    Kimberly, with either room, you will have easy access to Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios and, of course, you can enjoy the shops, dining and entertainment experiences along Disney's BoardWalk!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
