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. « less

Food, shopping you'll get your fill. If your kids are legal they'll like this place to go for a drink too. It's worth checking out. Would I travel just for this to Disney no... but you're already here so go!

A bus ride to Hollywood Studios from our hotel (Coronado Springs) then a water taxi to the Boardwalk. The ESPN here is loaded with lots of televisions to catch your favorite sports! We are from the west coast and wanted to watch the Angel game that night... only challenge, NO way to get back to our hotel that late unless... More

A great place to stroll around, and even buy souvenirs. Try to make a restaurant reservation ahead of time because although it is not as busy as the parks, it is still crowded.

Love going to the Boardwalk, It's Al Disney but without all the stuff at the parks. Nice place to stroll and the quiet is a welcome relief. Plenty of choices for eating. Overall a great place to get all the Disney feel but without the crowds and all the hustle and bustle.

I've visited Florida 3 times and twice stayed at the swan and dolphin, just a 5-10 min walk from Disneys boardwalk! I love everything about it! I like it that much I really want to get married there! Good places to eat, drink and grab an ice cream. You can also get the boat to Epcot from here!

Arrived in the afternoon, parking was free as long as you mentioned you'd like to go the boardwalk or explore the Disney Boardwalk resort. We were expecting crowds and shows but to find most food stands are closed only few stores open and a very quiet boardwalk. At first our daughter got bored and we almost leave although it is... More

My favorite spot in Disney. Lots of delicious restaurants and dessert places. Fun, family friendly atmosphere. In the evenings, there are street magicians and music, and the view of the lit up boats is spectacular.

A very easy walk to the boardwalk. Shops are open and ice cream is available. the Bakery offers cookies and cupcakes. Many places to sit and people watch. We enjoyed looking out at the water and the lights on the buildings. We were able to see fireworks from the Hollywood Studios from this location. Not really crowded compared to other... More

Big River is a restaurant on the Boardwalk and our favorite place there to eat. You can also stop by ESPN's restaurant where they have... More
