Photo Tour of a Studio at Disney’s BoardWalk Villas

(For the first page of this review of Disney’s BoardWalk Villas, see this.)

PHOTO TOUR OF A STUDIO AT DISNEY’S BOARDWALK VILLAS

There’s four room types at the BoardWalk Villas–Studios, One Bedroom Villas, Two Bedroom Villas (essentially a combination of the first two) and Grand Villas. This page shows what you’ll find in a Studio and thus also in the second bedroom of a Two Bedroom Villa.Floor Plan Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.netThe BoardWalk Villas were refurbed in 2015/2016 and the biggest change was to the studios, which now sleep five–the fifth in a new fold-down bed that disappears the dining table.

Entry Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

At the entry you’ll find the bath on one side and kitchenette on the other.

Mini Kitchen Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

The kitchenette has a microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker and toaster.

Supplies Accessible Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

Basic supplies as in all DVC studios include some eating utensils. (Click to enlarge.)

On the other side of the entry is this large closet…

…and the main sink area of the bath.

On the other side of the sink counter, the tub and shower are in their own room.

Bed Side Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

Deeper in the room you’ll find on one side a queen and a couch that converts into a bed.

Here’s a closer view of the queen–note the tight clearance on the wall side.

Couch Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

And here’s a closer view of the couch. The couch folds out into a bed that I measured as about 74″ long by 54″ wide. The cushion was 3+ inches thick, and like most DVC sofa beds is a little uncomfortable for taller and older people. In other words, put kids here, not adults…

TV Side Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

On the other side of the room you’ll find the TV, table and chairs, a dresser, and, if present,  the connecting door to a One-Bedroom Villa.

Dresser Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

The white dresser has four somewhat shallow drawers.

Table Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

Here’s a closer view of the table and chairs. The wood at the back is the bottom of a fold-down bed.

Fold-Down Bed Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

Take the chairs away, and fold down the bed.  The table disappears, and you get this bed which I measured as 32 inches by six feet.

Balcony Accessible Studio Disney's BoardWalk Villas from yourfirstvisit.net

At the end of the room you’ll find either a balcony or a patio.

These studio rooms are  charming, but the refurb made them a little more bland than their former iteration.  It’s nice that they now sleep five and have three sleeping spots.  But adults should only plan to sleep on the queen.

We are new to DVC , we plan to stay at Boardwalk in the studio in May. My problem is we have two boys 6’5″ and 7″ so we went with the pull down murphy bed. Our home resort is Copper Creek. Since we are trying not to use double the points to really not get a bigger room as far as beds go. How bad is the couch/bed for someone who is 19 and 7 foot tall?

Well, Nancy, there’s not a bed at Disney World that will fit a 7 footer well. The couch beds are usually shorter than a queen–so so shorter than 80 inches–and the fold down bed is just 72 inches long…
