    I am staying at the Boardwalk Villas. We are going to be in a 2 BR villa with a standard view. Can you see anything from the standardview??


    Thanks for coming to the Mom's Panel! 

    Most standard views at the Boardwalk Villas overlook a water canal and the Swan hotel, but some look out over the road leading to the Swan and its parking lot.  The worst rooms are considered the ones that face BoardWalk's entrance and the main BoardWalk parking lot.  You can request one of the rooms that overlook the water canal, but keep in mind that Disney can't always guarantee a request.

    Most folks who choose not to pay for the theme-park view, stay at the Boardwalk Villas for the access to its fun pool, boat access to Disney Studios, and proximity to the Epcot and the Boardwalk amenities. 

    If you really want a good view and enjoy time on a larger balcony, my suggestion is to upgrade to the theme-park view.  However, if your budget can't take it, consider the less-expensive Old Key West and request a third-floor room in buildings 55, 46, or 45 overlooking the river or buildings 13, 12, or 11 for a golf-course view.  You'll actually get roomier accommodations, but keep in mind that you'll lose the easy access to the parks and restaurants that make the Boardwalk so popular--and more expensive.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
