    Hello Matthew!

    I love the beautifully refurbished Villas at Disney's Boardwalk Villas. Not only are they stunning, but the convenience of walking or hopping aboard a Friendship to two theme parks simply cannot be overstated.

    The best location to catch an obstructed view of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth is from a BoardWalk View Villa. If you have reserved a different category, I recommend that you request only a high floor. The best view of Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular will be in the Villas that are rather far from the lobby and elevator. 

    Even better, I suggest that as it moves closer to the time for an evening spectacular, grab a delicious ice cream from the new, and amazing, Ample Hills Creamery, settle in on a bench overlooking the water, and gaze up! This would be a perfect ending to an unforgettable day.

    Come on back and let us know how else we can help, Matthew. The Disney Parks Moms Panel is here to help.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
