Disney Vacation Guide to Disney’s BoardWalk

Disney’s Boardwalk was designed after the famous old boardwalks of Coney Island and Atlantic City. Within walking distance from Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway to Epcot, visit the BoardWalk by foot and and explore its quarter mile of nightclubs, restaurants and shops.

Many of the Disney Resorts are found here on Crescent Lake; Boardwalk Inn and Villas resorts, Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club resorts, Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resorts are all nearby. It’s worth taking some time on your vacation to explore the resorts themselves with their gorgeous gardens, interesting shops, pools, restaurants and other amenities.

Speaking of food…

You won’t go hungry at Disney’s BoardWalk. Sportsfans head straight for the ESPN Club with its 100 televisions including a 108-square foot screen. The Flying Fish Cafe is a fantastic place to feast on fresh seafood but you can find vegetarian fare there as well as game, poultry and red meat. Beer lovers flock to the Big River Grille & Brewing Works where you can wash down your meal with beers made right on the premises.

Go shopping

Shop for Disney merchandise, grocery items, art, ESPN gear, collectable pins and much more! Remember the resorts all have their own shops for you to peruse as well.

Be entertained

If you’re not interested in popping in to lounges and nightclubs, it’s entertaining just to stroll the BoardWalk during the evening. Watch street performers and other entertainers along the BoardWalk among hot dog stands, funnel cake carts, coffee kiosks, and midway games.

There is no admission to visit this part of Disney World though some of the venues do have a cover charge.
