Guests staying at one Disney World Resort did not have a magical night with news that rooms flooded and had to be evacuated.
Disney’s BoardWalk Resort
The BoardWalk Resort is one of the most unique resorts in all of Disney World! Not only is it a full hotel, but the actual boardwalk offers fun entertainment and plenty of dining choices as well.
Described as a resort that evokes turn-of-the-century boardwalks in coastal cities such as Coney Island and Atlantic City, the BoardWalk Resort has a theme that sets it apart from the rest – from the Nanny chairs to somewhat creepy clown pool that has recently been replaced.
Currently, only the DVC side is portion, as the BoardWalk Inn does not have a set reopening date.
I really love the BoardWalk Resort, and you can check out my full guide HERE.
BoardWalk Resort Flooded
Unfortunately, Guests staying at the BoardWalk Resort did not have a magical night on February 19, 2021.
A Kenny the Pirate Facebook follower by the name of Alex Adamek shares these photos of the flood that took place at the BoardWalk Resort.
The fire department was called to the scene so crews could help solve the issue.
You can also see the damage on the ceiling of what is likely the first floor.
Additionally, you can see the water that gathered on the floor of a higher level room.
Another Twitter user, @DrunksinDisney, questioned whether or not there was a water leakage issue. Fans are set up throughout The Screen Door General store. They also note a musty smell at Big River Grille (which is currently closed).
Has Disney Responded?
What an eventful evening at the BoardWalk Resort. We hope there are no injuries and that the leak issue can be remedied soon.
Disney has not issued a statement regarding the flood. It is unknown what rooms are affected and how this could impact future stays. As a reminder, only the DVC side of the Resort is open with the Inns currently closed. There is no reopening date set for the Inn rooms.
You may remember back in January, the BoardWalk Resort experienced a fire incident. You can read more about that HERE.
