by | Apr 23, 2021 | WDW Blog, WDW News, WDW Resorts

Disney has finally announced an early July 2021 reopening date for Disney’s BoardWalk Inn at Walt Disney World (WDW).

The BoardWalk Inn is a deluxe resort located within walking distance to both ECPOT and Hollywood Studios. There are many perks to the hotel, including the views, dining, and transportation.

Disney’s BoardWalk Villas (a Disney Vacation Club property) has been open and available to book for awhile now, but now guests will be able to stay at BoardWalk Inn (a non-DVC resort) come July 2, 2021.

And in some other good news reservations are also currently available to book for arrivals beginning July 2.
