We went here to visit a restaurant called flying fish ( which was fantastic). This place is so relaxing and has beautiful scenery. There isn't loads to do here but enough for a visit. There is a disney shop and a bakery and sweet shop and it's a lovely walk by the water. There was also some entertainment for the... More

Lots of construction going on to remodel but this made it quiet so we could get to the shops and spend more than we should have!

I ended up on Disney's Boardwalk since I was staying at one of the Epcot resorts. You can enjoy the view or browse the shops and restaurant choices. I would recommend the free water taxi, which will take you across the lagoon or to Epcot. At night the Boardwalk is lit up and you can find entertainment at the Dance... More

Going to the Boardwalk and Crescent Lake at Walt Disney World is such a fun experience and place to go! There are so many restaurants and food choices as well as a beautiful scenic view. At night, there are daredevils and magicians out on the Boardwalk to entertain you. It is such a fun place to go as well as... More

This was the first park we visited when we went to Disney World. We found it totally fascinating, sure happy we went there first, as going to Downtown Disney after being at one of the other Great parks we wouldn't have been near as amazed with Downtown park. If you are going take in Downtown Disney, your experience will be... More

By far our family's favorite place to stay at Disney. You have the ability to walk into Epcot and Hollywood studios on the walkway or take a boat to either park. The Entertainment on the boardwalk every night is fresh and fun and appealing to all age groups.

Although we have been to Disney's Boardwalk before, it has been almost 3 years since we last visited. This trip we decided to go back, walk, and just look around. The atmosphere is always pleasant, and the variety of shops and restaurants gives you plenty to look at. During this trip the artist Michael Godard was actually on site in... More

Lots of shops to visit and shop (or window shop), for both kids and adults. Had dinner at the T-Rex Restaurant which was nice. Highlight was the Lego Store. I would consider it more of an evening place to walk either before or after dinner.
