Review of Boardwalk Villas (Disney Vacation Club)

This is the third time we have stayed at the Boardwalk. There were four of us in a studio and even though it was a little close for comfort we made it work. We stayed here from 5/19-5/22. This resort offers everything. The pool and bar are great and you couldn't ask for a better location. The new and improved Boardwalk bakery is awesome. We love being able to walk to Epcot and taking the boat to Hollywood Studios. You couldn't ask for a nicer resort.

Pros:

great location

Review of Animal Kingdom Lodge KIDANI Village (Disney Vacation Club)

We stayed here from 5/22-5/25 in a one bedroom. This was our first time staying her and cannot wait to go back. From the moment you walk in you are greeted and treated like family. There is always someone to help you. Even Candido who brought our bags to our room was so helpful. The room was gorgeous and it was great to have the two bathrooms with the 4 of us on the room. The only negative I have was that our room was the 2nd to last down the hall. It was such a long walk especially at the end of the day. The bus service was terrific. Never had to wait longer then 10mins for a bus. I know people say that this is the furtherest from any of the parks, but the ride never seemed long. We are staying here again in 2014.

Pros:

Beautiful rooms and scenery

Cons:

The food was comparable or slightly better than an Olive Garden but was priced about 40 - 50% higher. Dinner for 4 was $170 without alcohol beverages. Two appetizers, four entrees and two desserts. It was Ok to try for the first time but we would not repeat.

Pros:

Service

Cons:

Review of Wolfgang Puck Express Marketplace

We ate at Wolfgang Puck on Westside and it was great, but then we ate at the restaurant in the Marketplace. It ROCKED!! The Westside Wolfgang was small and had maybe two tables inside. We ate on the dining plan and had plenty of food. The 1/2 chicken was very moist, even the white meat. The mashed potatoes were delish!! The pizza was wonderful. It had a a variety of food choices for my very picky teens.

The Marketplace restaurant had plenty of sit down space inside. The waiters are awesome and very friendly. I had the turkey salad. It was wonderful. Child had spaghetti and meatballs. He licked the plate clean!! The creme brulee was to die for!!!!! As was the cheesecake. We also got 2 fruit cups as deserts on DDP and took those back to room for breakfast the next morning. We decided when we go back we will eat here every night until we have tried everything on the menu!!

Pros:

Moist chicken, mashed potatoes, all deserts

Cons:

NONE!!!

It took us 10+ trips to the World before we finally tried this place! Had dinner here in May - The atmosphere is very fun! - We were seated in a room off to the side, but the fabulous entertainers brought a small stage into the room so we could see the show up close! The Irish Step dancers are amazing! Our waiter was excellent. We are an Irish family from Boston and were thrilled to have an Yankees fan from NY as our server! He was fabulous and we had a lot of fun with him.

We were starving so the 4 of us decided to share the some ginourmous appetizer sampling platter. The scallops were to DIE for..the ribs with Guinness BBQ sauce were ok and the Dalkey Duo were the least of our favorites. Next time it will be all scallops.

For dinner, DH decided to try the Sod the Stew - why he chose this on a 90 degree day, I have no idea. He must have been inspired by the fabulous dancing and his cold beer. In any event, he LOVED it. I had the It's Not Bleedin' Chowder! and it was very good. I did enjoy it but I will definately try something else next time. There was a very strong flavor of bacon, which was a little odd with all the fresh seafood. Both kids had the fish and chips and enjoyed them as well.
We had the Ger's Bread & Butter Pudding for dessert...I am not sure if we were just full from dinner or if we are just missing the boat here...but we just didn't love it...sooooo sweet. Tasty, but sweet (did I mention sweet) and super heavy. A few bites for each of us and we were done.

We really enjoyed our meal here...we were very happy with our first try and will definately go back!

DH absolutely LOVED the Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle sandwich last year - he was soooo looking forward to it...So a few weeks ago, during a sudden thunderstorm, we decided it would be the perfect time to satisfy his year-long craving. We ordered 2 of them to share between 3 of us and DD tried the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich.
Sadly...it had changed and not for the best. :(
The piece of fried chicken was much smaller and it was not nearly as moist. There was very little of the once fabulous sauce, making for a super dry sandwich. The once crispy and tasty slaw was almost non-existent. Unfortunately this all added up to a not-so-great sandwich and a huge disappointment.
DD did enjoy her waffle - actually we all did - once we pitched the chicken waffles we shared hers. ;)

We have done many tours and are so glad we decided to do this one. It is not behind scenes but very enjoyable. Our guide was very informative. Besides the walking tour, we were greeted by animal caretakers in the aviary and at a monkey exhibit. We stopped for a break with a snack of fresh fruit, muffins, and drinks in Pizzafari. This tour really does give a new perspective on many elements in the park.

Pros:

Well done tour, informative guide

We are seasoned DVC members and this was our first stay at this resort. We were promptly greeted upon arrival and check in was quick and easy. The room was nice and one of the cleanest I have seen in recent trips. Unfortunately the foyer toilet would not flush, but it was fixed promptly. Rooms are showing wear and tear. The blind on the door to the balcony was severely torn and the wooden chair gouged. We had no difficulty using the monorail or walking to MK. For other resorts we drove. View of fireworks from front of resort was very good. We didn't even try to go to the observation deck. Pool was a little small and crowded. Glad we tried it but we prefer other DVC resorts. This is a very good place to stay if you want to spend most of your time in MK.

Pros:

Proximity to MK

Cons:

Showing wear and tear
