Disney's Boardwalk may float your boat depending on what you want from your holiday. It has restaurants and a dance hall, etc but on our Disney holiday, we preferred to spend time at the parks and if there wasn't one open late we would often catch an early night! A lot of the attractions are for over 21s so you... More

We ate dinner at the Big River Grill and Brew, and walked along the boardwalk at 3:00 and there were NO crowds. Parking was easy and a short 100 yard walk to the venue. All stores and eateries were open and not busy. There was a boat to and from the Disney Hollywood park. The food at Big River was... More

We always go here and it's a nice feeling to be there. Best thing it's free. We didn't eat there as the main restaurants were too busy! Have to pre book . Massive Disney shop which kids loved and free parking, although better to just park opposite the main car park and avoid getting stuck looking for a space for... More

Honestly, this was one of the nicest places I've ever stayed. In spite of being filled with families with small children, we heard *nothing* from the rooms around us or from the hall. The room was spacious and beautiful but comfortable. The pools were incredible. My son enjoyed the sandy bottom pool best, and I loved that he was able... More

A really lovely setting for an evening stroll around the lake. Parking and admission is free - but take photo ID to get in. There are some good restaurants for eating and nice shops for browsing or shopping. Choose the right place and there's also a good view of the Disney fireworks at 9 pm.

I loved the fact you could walk to Epcot and the swan and dolphin hotel. The food along boardwalk is really nice. loved getting a pizza and sitting down watching the fish and turtles swimming around is nice.

We spent a nice evening here. We had a good dinner and great margarita at Big River. We played a couple of carnival games (one winner amount 6 of us). We really enjoyed the street magician, he interacted with two of us and we walked away wondering how he did some of those tricks. The boardwalk has a nice view... More

Love Disneyworld like the Boardwalk hotel but there are no restaurants that can be reached from inside the hotel so when it rains you get wet going to dinner! Otherwise it's a great location. Easy access to Hollywood studios and Epcot!
