This is KEY to Boardwalk Villas, and I mean it!
When we checked in, the CM offered to put us right by the elevator… we were aghast (usually “by the elevator” means noise, foot traffic, ice machines, etc., and it is un-desirable). We requested to be as far from the elevator as possible. So we were given the top floor, last room on the left. It was a really long walk to the room, but we LOVED it because of the view (yes, parking lot, but also tennis courts and Tower of Terror!), the quiet, the MGM fireworks at night, etc.
This is all in the main building, which is massive. There are all sorts of stairwells that you ca nuse to take shortcuts to the pools, etc.
However, if you want to have the short walk, take the room by the elevator!
