BoardWalk Villas Resort Facts and Fun

Visit the Screen Door General Store on Disney's BoardWalk for groceries, dry goods, snacks and beverages. The store is open daily from 8:00 a.m. until midnight.

Disney's BoardWalk Resort opened on July 1, 1996.

Luna Park, the free-form pool at Disney's BoardWalk Resort, is named after an early amusement park in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and features Keister Coaster, a 200-ft water slide in the form of a classic wooden roller coaster.

The "Hippocampus Electrolier" ( Hippocampus is a mythological creature; electrolier is a chandelier for electric lamps) in the Resort lobby features fanciful carousel animals that are half horse and half sea creature. The chandelier weighs 3,000 pounds (1.5 tons) and is finished entirely in 22-karat gold leaf, hand-cut Austrian crystal and custom-blown glass.

The crystal globe at the bottom of the Hippocampus Electrolier chandelier is a time capsule scheduled for opening during the 50th Anniversary celebration of the Walt Disney World® Resort.
