Boardwalk Inn at Disney’s Boardwalk is probably the most popular deluxe resort in the Disney family. Being on the Boardwalk has a lot to do with that but the luxury that comes with it is probably more desirable.
The theme is 1940’s boardwalk from Atlantic City, NJ. The architecture for this theme is spot on as You would expect from Disney. The wooden boardwalk is very much like the 1940’s boardwalk except You will not trip from uneven boards. Disney has made this a replica but with modern safety and comfort. The Clown Slide at the pool is from the rides at the New Jersey boardwalk and looks like it came out of an old magazine.
The Resort is most convenient to Epcot and secondly to Hollywood Studios but the Magic Kingdom and Animal Kingdom can be reached easily by Disney Buses that arrive every 10 – 20 minutes out the front of the Resort. You can also reach the Magic Kingdom by monorail by going through Epcot.
The Resort has so many options for entertainment some guest stay here and never visit the theme parks. The Boardwalk has surrey bikes, pontoon boats that You can rent. The boardwalk also has shopping, fine and casual dining, entertainment including carnival games. Every age guest has something that interest them. Dad can slip away for a ball game at the ESPN Club where He will find countless TV’s, a full menu and a full bar as well as an arcade. Dancing till the wee hours of the night or quiet intimate piano bars, You can find every possible venue here. Many restaurants are visited by locals all over Orlando.
This resort was opened in July of 1996, at 22 years old, You would never know it but as You might expect, Disney keeps this resort in perfect condition so that it looks as if it was just built.
