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

Drive to Boardwalk after dinner and you can park free. Walk around and be entertained by the "street performers." We saw magicians and acrobats and the kids had a blast. Also has a good Disney gift shop, which has the same stuff as everywhere else, but without the crowds.

It was an interesting stop, as we've never been here, but not much here to see or do, we stayed about an hour or so, and ate lunch, the food was good, but not much else to see here.

My family and I arrived at Disney late in the evening. We wanted to do something, but didn't want to spend a lot of money for tickets. So... we went to the Boardwalk. It was a really good place to spend the evening. We ate at the ESPN club (my husband is still raving about the pb&j burger) and then... More

We visited this while looking for somewhere quick to eat. It was terrible. They are currently rebuilding most of it and although it's open, it resembles a building site rather than somewhere to enjoy. We parked, walked round for five minutes and then went to the Outback Steakhouse at the top of International Drive.

Being a visitor from the UK having visited down town Disney and the broad walk many times, I was appalled at the noise and mess. Disney have new cast members .. Call builders.. Everywhere. I gather Disney has found a new way to part your cash from your wallet.. 2016 will see parking in multi story units and then they... More

We decided to go and check out what this was all about. Nothing, not even Disney can mimic the NJ Shore area. It was boring and lackluster. The nachos at the ESPN Club were not that good, but hubby liked the sports, of course. I would not return.

Many restaurants and activities highlighted by the ESPN Club for the sports enthusiast. The convenience of the quick food choices and sit down restaurant choices offers something for everyone.
