Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is a popular destination for many Walt Disney World Resort Guests. Unfortunately, last night, Guests’ stay was interrupted by some major flooding in the Disney Vacation Club area of the Disney Resort hotel.
A Disney Vacation Club member on Facebook confirmed the situation occurred around very early this morning, while the vast majority of Disney vacationers were still assuredly asleep. Several social media users on Twitter also shared details about the BoardWalk Inn flooding.
Triple Z wrote (in a since deleted Tweet):
It seemed like a crazy night at Disney’s BoardWalk last night.
The post was accompanied by a screenshot of a Facebook post by Alex Adamek that read:
4:07 [a.m.] excitement at the Boardwalk [sic: BoardWalk]. A pipe burst and there is 2+ inches of water in some hotel rooms on at least the second floor. Not sure if other floors are affected. Damage is relatively severe and a good chunk of the Boardwalk view rooms will be out of commission on the second floor. Somehow this tripped the fire alarms and a crowd is currently gathering in the hallway.
Another Guest questioned if the Resort hotel has always suffered from a leak problem, even before the pipe burst today:
Does the bottom floor of the DVC wing at Boardwalk have a water leakage issue? Fans all throughout The Screedoor [sic: Screendoor], and Big River has always been musty.

At this time, Disney has not released an official statement regarding the flood. Inside the Magic will continue to provide updates as they become available.
