Today’s Picture of the Day is of the boardwalk at night.
The boardwalk area is located across from the Yacht and Beach Club. The Boardwalk Inn Villas are right on the boardwalk, so guests staying there can walk down from their room to experience all the shopping and dining offered there.
While there may not be as many dining and shopping options as Disney Springs has, there is still a fair amount of options. We spent quite a bit of time on the boardwalk during our last trip, because we were staying at the Boardwalk Villas, and we really enjoyed all the options available to us.
Here is a list of the dining options on the boardwalk:
- Big River Grille & Brewing Works
- BoardWalk Bakery
- BoardWalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas
- ESPN Club
- Flying Fish Cafe
- Funnel Cake Cart
- Pizza Window
- The To-Go Cart
- Trattoria al Forno
We loved BoardWalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas! That’s where we got our Mickey pretzels and out pineapple smoothies. We found out a few days into our stay that they will add rum to the pineapples smoothies for an extra cost. Yes, please! The mix of the rum with the pineapple flavor was so good!
Here are the shops on the boardwalk:
- Disney’s Character Carnival
- Screen Door General Store
- Thimbles & Threads
- Wyland Galleries
At night, they also have entertainers performing along the boardwalk. They are really fun to watch and they usually include the audience in their acts. If it’s raining the entertainers will just move into the lobby of the Boardwalk Inn and perform there.
Also, the outdoor movies at the Boardwalk Inn take place on a grassy area by the boardwalk. So you can always join the fun of watching a Disney movie outside.
Ever since we discovered the boardwalk area it has been one of our favorite places to visit. It doesn’t hurt that it’s five minute walking distance to Epcot either. So you can always take a stroll towards the bridge on the boardwalk and get a decent view of Illuminations, without even having to set foot in Epcot.
