"Disney's BoardWalk area contains more than 90,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and nightclubs. It encompasses Crescent Lake and is ""a village on the water"" near many Disney Resort hotels in Walt Disney World Resort. This quarter-mile entertainment, dining and shopping area is also conveniently close to 2 Disney Theme Parks.With sherbet-colored building facades, striped awnings, rising columns and archways, Disney's BoardWalk is designed after the boardwalks that were famous during the turn of the 20th century along such coastal cities as Coney Island, New York and Atlantic City, New Jersey.Stroll along Disney's BoardWalk during the day to explore the unusual shops and restaurants. When the sun cools down, the nightlife heats up with street performers, food vendors, midway games and lots of live entertainment.

I say "true" board walk because its made a wood; I only mention this because I recently walked on a "board"walk made of steel - at Virginia Beach. Disney's Boardwalk can be reached by walking through the lobby of Walt Disney World's Boardwalk Hotel, or exiting Epcot Center at the International Gateway of that theme park. It is a relaxing...

We have only ever been here whilst visiting friends who were staying at the Boardwalk, but the vibe and feel of the place is everything that you would want on a holiday. It is relaxed yet full of fun and entertainment, with plenty of places to eat, drink and even catch up with your favourite sports team.

If you have the money to splurge I would suggest Board Walk Inn. Back track to the front desk clerk that checked us in. He was RUDE! He profiled us just because we were a young brown looking couple. He probably didn't think we could afford the place. The room is bigger than most hotels and has a pull out... More

Night or day a great place to stroll, to eat off the carts or in the several restaurants, to have a drink (various sorts), bakery stuff or ice cream .... whew, there's more: like after 9pm dancing, night at ESPN or Jellirolls (band). In-between, EPCOT (International Gateway entry by country pavilions) and Hollywood Studios. You can walk or boat; you... More

Having grown up in NJ, there is something magical about Boardwalk. It could be Asbury Park, Coney Island, Atlantic City or Belmar because it is reminiscent of all. We love to walk on the Boardwalk and take the boats. We love the street performers and the Epcot laser show which may be viewed from the benches in front of the... More

When we went (early November) it was not nearly as crowded as the last time we went in August. Great place for pictures, the parade was super great, picture opportunities were fabulous. Just inside the park entrance so it set the mood for the entire day. Recommend you use the fast pass option they have to jump to front of... More
