    Hi ..We will be staying at Boardwalk Villa's for the first time 5/10-5/16. I heard it is close to Epcot and Hollywood. Are they in walking distance..? How far ..?Should I request a room in a certain section and will I still be near a pool?

    Hi Tom!

    What a great resort choice - and a beautiful time of year! I'm sure you'll love the great location of the Boardwalk and all the wonderful activities found there! The dining and entertainment are top notch.

    Epcot is within easy walking distance of the Boardwalk. Its an easy 5 to 10 minute stroll to the International Gateway which is located between England and France in the World Showcase. Hollywood Studios is a longer walk, about 20 minutes or so. Our family has walked to the Studios from the Boardwalk before, but will probably use the boat transportation next time instead.

    For both Epcot and Hollywood Studios, boat ferries make a circuit of the parks and resorts in this area. They are a convenient choice if you're just not up to walking or if you prefer a leisurely return to your resort.

    If you're interested in being near the pool, I would call Disney reservations at (407) 939-7675 and add a request to your reservation. I would request "to be close to the Luna Park pool". While room requests are never guaranteed, we've always had great luck!

    I hope you have a great vacation and enjoy the Boardwalk! Don't forget to check out the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival which will happening during your stay. The park is beautifully landscaped and the topiaries are not to be missed!
