BoardWalk Inn Resort

Disney's BoardWalk revives and energizes the mid-Atlantic waterfront villages of the 1940s. As guests walk along the lively waterfront promenade, they can stroll into the quaint shops and enjoy the unique vendors or dine at one of three restaurants or experience entertainment found nowhere else, like the up-to-the-minute sports action at the ESPN Club or the hip sounds at Atlantic Dance.

BoardWalk's two grand waterfront lodges feature striped awnings and breezy balconies reminiscent of the grand oceanside resorts of the early 1900s. This was the era when the whole family went down to the Jersey Shore for the summer and escaped to the beach on a big yellow streetcar for the day.

While rich folks sat in rocking chairs on the verandah or wheeled along the boardwalk in wicker rolling chairs, fun-seeking couples and younger families played arcade games, danced the Bunny-Hug, filled up on snacks and sweets or strolled along the moonlit walkway.

Disney's BoardWalk is an idealized re-creation of this romantic past.

Noted architect Robert A.M. Stern's "village across the water" includes an array of dining, entertainment and shopping experiences; meeting facilities; Disney's BoardWalk Inn, a 378-room deluxe hotel; and Disney's BoardWalk Villas, a vacation ownership resort with over 500 villas.

Nestled along Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn and Villas sit atop a quaint collection of shops, clubs and restaurants overlooking the boardwalk and village green. The inn and villas share an expansive, naturally lit lobby with a barrel-vaulted ceiling. An eclectic mix of stripes and florals, fan-back wicker chairs, overstuffed sofas and giant palms create a relaxed elegance. Antique-finished, hardwood flooring with hand-woven floral rugs completes the intimate setting.

Vintage furnishings with floral patterned fabrics and vibrant colors provide a cozy environment at Disney's BoardWalk Inn. Two-, three- and four-story buildings surround private courtyards and manicured gardens. Additionally, there are 14 two-story garden suites with private entrances.

More than 9,000 square feet of retail shops open onto the boardwalk. Shopping includes Screen Door General Store, for groceries and sundries; Disney Character Carnival featuring Disney character merchandise and clothing for youngsters; Thimbles 'n Threads, offering resort apparel for men and women and Wyland Galleries.

A promenade connects Disney's BoardWalk to four other Epcot resort area hotels on the shores of the lake: Disney's Yacht Club Resort, Disney's Beach Club Resort, Walt Disney World Dolphin and Walt Disney World Swan. Walkways and water taxis connect the hotels to Epcot and to Disney-MGM Studios.
