Come step back in time with me, let’s travel to Disney’s Boardwalk Inn. The “Boardwalk” is a deluxe resort and within walking distance to not just EPCOT (5 minutes) but, Hollywood Studios (15 to 20 minutes on foot) too! Across the Crescent Lake are 2 additional hotels (Yacht & Beach Clubs), in addition Swan & Dolphin are a short jaunt over a bridge or two.
There are 378 rooms at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn and shares the property with Disney’s Vacation Club Boardwalk Villas. The “Boardwalk” has room service, a business center, concierge and laundry services, banquet and meeting facilities and valet parking (additional fee). Child care services are also available. There are small refrigerators in the rooms, as well as small coffee makers. Let me not forget about Muscles and Bustles Health Club for your fitness needs.
Did you forget your toothbrush? No problem, head over to Dundry’s Sundries (located off the lobby) or the Screen Door General Store (on the board).
Transportation options at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn – Climb aboard the Friendship Boat. The boat will take you to EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, Yacht & Beach Club, Swan and/or Dolphin resorts. You will need to take a bus to any other Disney location. The bus stop door is right off the lobby.
Let’s talk food, once on the boards you can head to numerous eateries.
Flying Fish – serves fresh fish and steaks. You can watch your dinner be prepared as there is an open kitchen.
Go to The ESPN Club to watch a game and grab a snack, drink, or burger.
The Boardwalk Bakery is not to be missed. The smells coming out of the bakery can make you weak in the knees. There is usually a line in the morning, but it’s completely understandable.
Kouzzina by Food Network Chef Cat Cora is a Mediterranean restaurant.
Big River Grille and Brewing Works offers micro-brewed beers. Have a cold one while enjoying beer breads, salads, and burgers.
Or try The Belle Vue Lounge if you want to sit and relax with a coffee or cocktail.
The pool or Luna Park has a 200 foot waterside called the “Keister Coaster”. The theme is a carnival – The “Keister Coaster”resembles an old wooden coaster, there are elephants playfully spraying you too! Looking for something a little quieter? Disney’s Boardwalk Inn has 2 additional pools Inn’s Rose Garden Courtyard or Community Hall in the Villas.
Looking for some fun at night? Even if you’re not staying at the “Boardwalk” come over for an evening of fun! There are entertainers, food vendors, games, jugglers, magic shows, and hand wax molds!
Looking for something for the over 21 crowd? Do you like music? It can get loud and rowdy, but boy is it fun! Welcome to Jellyrolls, they have dueling pianos. Don’t tell me your not going to sing, because you will! Or head over to Atlantic Dance, where you can dance the night away.
Have a Magical Day!
