    How do we request a room close to the elevators in the Boardwalk Inn? We already have our room reservations for December. We need to minimize walking distance to Epcot entrance as much as possible. Thank you.

    Hiya Pauline,

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so excited that you are here and that we get to help you with your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I love Disney’s BoardWalk! It is so pretty at night, and I love the ease of getting to EPCOT either via a short little stroll or a boat ride. I always tell my friends planning trips to Walt Disney World Resort that their vacation is a marathon, not a sprint (literally, I average at least 10 miles a day in walking). Steps are precious, so I understand your need to preserve them from Disney’s BoardWalk Inn to EPCOT. Luckily you can request specific room locations using the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    To make room requests, open the My Disney Experience mobile app and select the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner. Next, select “Resort Hotel” and “Modify Your Check-In.” Once you do this, you can make requests such as a specific floor or being near an elevator. Please note that these requests are not guaranteed and are subject to availability, but it never hurts to input the request. I highly recommend prioritizing your requests to no more than two; that way, it is more likely you will be able to have them accommodated.

    Lastly, if you don’t want to utilize the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can always stop at the Disney’s BoardWalk Inn’s front desk when you arrive at the Resort to see if there is a room available near the elevator for you.

    I hope you enjoy your magical vacation this December! If you need anything else, please come back and see us.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
