Dec 05 Victorian Charm in Disney’s Boardwalk Inn’s Sonora Suite
Disney’s Boardwalk Inn’s Vice Presidential Sonora Suite offers a pleasing Victorian-style charm in its 1,744 square feet.
Enter the living room from a columned hallway where an area rug sits atop light wood flooring and the décor consists of an olive green sofa accented with touches of magenta in its throw pillows, two tufted easy chairs in a butterscotch palette, and oval coffee table. Behind the sofa sits a desk, and over a dark wood bureau is a giant-size, wall-mounted TV.
A muraled screen decorates the dining room whose eight-person table is surrounded by sea blue upholstered chairs. Off the entry are a service kitchen on one side and a marble half bath on the other. A shallow balcony runs the length of the suite.
On one side of the living area is an upgraded standard-size guest room with two, 2-poster queen beds and a bath; on the other side is the master bedroom featuring a cherry wood king-size bed sitting high off the floor, bureau with TV, and heavy gold drapery.
The marble and granite master bathroom comes with double sink, separate shower, oversized tub, and separate commode area, all highlighted with lovely mosaic tile flooring.
Throughout the suite is Victorian-style neutral floral wallpaper, something that may not be to everyone’s taste, but the outstanding view from the balcony is an all-encompassing panorama of Crescent Lake.
I do like the story behind the suite’s name: Sonora Carver was a woman who had a diving-horse act in the 1920s at the Atlantic City Boardwalk, plunging 40 feet on the back of a horse to land in a tank of water.
