My girl T Town Tiffany is about to pop out a “mini mister” any second and her hubby Big Russ took the raw talent God gave him and whipped up one of the most amazing Disney nurseries I’ve ever laid eyes on.
Can you spot the Hidden Mickey?
Until now, the extent of my knowledge of the inside of the rooms at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn was a quick pop in and out to pick up a bottle of wine from my girlfriend that she couldn’t take on the plane home with her.
I had never actually stayed at the Boardwalk Inn until this past weekend for the 2012 Wine and Dine Half Marathon. The Boardwalk Inn was the place that Running at Disney and I hung our sneakers for four nights while we ran, wined and dined. Check out our digs.
I have my qualms with the comfort of the beds at the value resorts but this bed was so comfy!
Well hello Hidden Mickey towel art. You make my Disney vacation complete!
Can you believe we didn’t turn this flat screen TV on ONCE during our stay…not even to see Stacey! Too much to do…too little time.
Pretty sure this couch turns into a bed, but there were only us two girls and it was efficient in holding our gear.
We did, however utilize this oversized balcony!
…and this mini fridge held two gallons of water so we could stay hydrated for our runDisney race!
Super cute Minnie lamp on the desk!
Can you spot the Hidden Mickeys in the shower curtain?
Hidden Mickey details on the frosted lamps and mirrors in the bathroom area as well.
All the art in the room was themed as an Atlantic City-style seaside resort would be.
Probably the best part about the Boardwalk Inn rooms was the proximity to so many great things! Like Boardwalk Pizza, ESPN Club, Kouzzina and of course walking distance to Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Sarah and I having too much fun.
Have you stayed at the Boardwalk Inn or DVC section of the resort? What did you think?
Special thanks to Disney for hosting this stay at the Boardwalk Inn. I was not required to write this post and all opinions are my own.

This weekend a few hundred loyal blog readers, who were tipped off by a blog post on the Disney Parks Blog, headed out to a Special “Wreck-it-Ralph Game Day Meet Up” at Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World.
The festivities began at the DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park where guests checked in and were gifted with a “Wreck-it-Ralph” temporary tattoo and an amazing “HERO” Medal. When you see the film for yourself (and I hope you will) you’ll understand the significance of this gift. Here’s a shot of some cast members working the event in front of a magnificent “Sugar Rush” background.
As runDisney participants, my daughter and I really appreciated the medal!
Upon entering DisneyQuest, guests were treated to a photo opp with life sized lead character Wreck-it-Ralph.
and then had the opportunity to actually play the game Fix It Felix Jr. Not only that, but the entire DisneyQuest Interactive Theme Park was fair game…for two full hours meet-up guests had use of anything and everything DisneyQuest had to offer.
I hadn’t been to DisneyQuest in years and so I had to head down with a few of my friends for a friendly game of bumper car dodge ball at Buzz Lightyear’s Astro Blasters…may favorite game there.
But one of the highlights of the DisneyQuest experience was this…
Moist red velvet cake with a decadent cream cheese frosting rolled in crushed Heath Bar candy pieces. Oh yeah! Big thanks to Mrs. Hidden Mickey Guy for sharing with me.
Then it was off to prescreen “Wreck-it-Ralph” at the AMC Downtown Disney 24 theater. Guests had been tagged with wristbands at check-in to help ease the process into the theaters. We were broken up into teams: Ralph, Felix and Vanellope and given different arrival times. We were also treated to a snack…a bag of white cheddar popcorn and a bottle of soda.
Walt Disney Animation Studios knocked it out of the arcade with “Wreck-it-Ralph”! I laughed. I almost cried. And I missed out on some inside jokes that only gamers understood, judging from the laughs I heard from my fellow movie goers. Go see “Wreck-it-Ralph” in theaters November 2nd.
And keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog. I hear tell there’s going to be a “Be Our Guest” Meet Up next month!
This signature beverage will be a big hit at Gaston’s Tavern when New Fantasyland opens later this year – LeFou’s Brew, named after Gaston’s sidekick in “Beauty and the Beast.” It’s no-sugar added frozen apple juice with a hint of toasted marshmallow, topped with all-natural passion fruit-mango foam. We bet the souvenir steins and goblets are going to go fast. (And, yes, if it sounds familiar, guests at Cars Land at the Disneyland Resort may have tasted the frozen concoction at the Cozy Cone.)
Did you notice the hidden mickey at the bottom of Gaston’s mug?
