Owner description: "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 love the quiet walk around the Boardwalk and their delicious restaurants and bars all within sight of the Swan & Dolphin Hotels and with views of the Epcott fireworks at night. For me, no trip to Disney Florida is complete without a stroll around the BW

The Boardwalk at Disney is a great option when you're looking for something new and quiet to do on your trip. There are many cute shops and dining to explore, and its free to walk around! Take advantage of the arcade, and visit the Boardwalk hotel! You can walk to the Boardwalk from the World Showcase at Epcot which is... More

Disney's Boardwalk is Disney's attempt to create a replica of the famed Atlantic City Boardwalk in New Jersey. Boardwalks are hallmarks of New Jersey shore towns, and they are indeed festive places where families come together and enjoy good old fashioned American good time that includes strolling, simple arcades and theme park attractions, restaurants, mom and pap shops, etc. What...

Designed after the New Jersey Boardwalk and located close to the park and the Yacht Club Resort. A fun place to visit. Nice dining. Bars and entertainment.

I think someone made a mistake and it's not me! I've been reading many of the reviews here, and unfortunately I think some people have misdirected their reviews and have got confused with Disney's Boardwalk and Downtown Disney. My family and I are pass holders and come to Disney often. In this particular trip, we did both the Boardwalk and... More

We headed to the Disney Boardwalk on our day off from the parks. It is free which is nice and it has a nice broad boardwalk so our 4 year old and 17 month old could easily run around without worrying about getting run over. There is plenty of shopping and restaurants. There are little tables on the water where... More

The Boardwalk is a great place to take a break from the parks and stroll along the boardwalk overlooking crescent lake. It is just a short walk from Epcot's back gate and even within walking distance from Hollywood Studios. At night they have street performers entertaining and it's free! Great pizza here as well!

Don't expect the Disney Boardwalk to be a mirror of Downtown Disney, it's actual primary function appears to be as a resort for people to stay at and my review does not cover the Boardwalk as a hotel or resort destination, I went there to shop and eat. In that context the Boardwalk is nice, but just too small and... More

We've been to Disney area a lot times, but it was in our last trip that we discovered The Boardwalk. We were super excited to find something in Disney we haven't seen before. We went in the afternoon and during the night. Our experience was very pleasant. We rented a quadricycle during the afternoon and we had a quality time... More
