Disney's BoardWalk Resort

At A Glance Deluxe resort featuring 378 rooms, with 24h room service, and 532 vacation villas, themed after some of the early Boardwalks such as found at Atlantic City.


The Boardwalk Inn and Suites Resorts opened in July, 1996. Located across the lake from the Beach and Yacht Club Resorts, the boardwalk is a unique combination of hotel and entertainment complex, which recaptures the enchantment of a bygone era very much in the style of a vintage Coney Island.

The Boardwalk ambience continues throughout the resort, through intricately detailed theming, both in the form of architecture, and tasteful decoration, with sherbet coloured facades, deep collonades, flagged turrets, and striped awnings, all reminders of the turn of the century boardwalks.

Along the wooden boardwalk itself, which skirts the lake, are several restaurants, a bakery, and a handful of bars. The Inn is a smallish bed-and-breakfast hotel themed as a turn-of-the-century seaside resort.


There are only 378 rooms at the Boardwalk Inn, however each evokes the charm of early Eastern Seaboard inns.  All of the rooms are decorated with cherry-wood furniature, and have private balconies.  Each room will sleep up to five guests, and feature either two queen sized beds and a childs day-bed, or alternatively one King-sized bed and a childs day-bed.

Romantic two-story garden suites each have a private Rose-Garden enclosed by a white picket fence, and sleep four guets, with a living room on the first floor, and a King sized bed in the bedroom loft area.  There are also a number of single story concierge suites at the Boardwalk Inn.

24h room service is available for those guests that wish to dine in the comfort of their own room.

As well as the above rooms at the Inn, there are 532 vacation villas which are collectively known as Disney's BoardWalk Villas Resort.  These are primarily Disney Vacation Club villas, but they area available for rent when not occupied by DVC members.   Each studio features a queen-sized bed and double sleep-sofa, with a wet-bar with microwave, coffee maker and small refrigerator.

Larger villas sleep from 4 right up to 12 people, and feature dining rooms, fully equipped kitchens, laundry facilities, master batch with whirlpool tubs, and Video Recorders.  They also include King sized beds in the master bedroom, living rooms with two sleep-sofas, and two queen sized beds in any additional bedrooms.

Food and Drink

There are plenty of places to eat and drink at the Boardwalk by it's very nature as an entertainment complex.  First of all there are a variety of small vendors along the Boardwalk itself selling everything from hot-dogs and pizza to popcorn and cotton candy.

The BoardWalk Bakery is a popular eatery, offering baked goods, ice cream, espresso and cappuccino.  Huge display windows allow people passing by to watch the early morning bakers at work, and bun rises are held at the Bakery each morning.

The Flying Fish Cafe has a show kitchen, and as it's name suggests is tailored towards offering seafood and fresh seasonal items.

An ESPN World Sports Bar,

The Atlantic Dance; a 1930's style big-band ballroom.

Jellyrolls", a dueling piano bar favor the boardwalk itself.

A bakery and a couple of full-service restaurants have been opened, as well.

Spoodles dishes up Mediteranean Fare.

The Big River Grill; specializes in grilled seafood.


The shared swimming pool is themed to be reminiscent of the old era Coney Island amusement parks called Luna Park.

It includes a slide that looks like a roller coaster, as well as other themeing cues. In size, it's smaller than "Stormalong Bay" over at the YBCR but nicely appointed. Tennis courts, croquet, and miniature golf are also available. For the later, "Fantasia Gardens" features a themed miniature golf course based on the classic animated feature.




Guest Services

Disney Transportation

Watercraft is available to transport guests to EPCOT and the Disney / MGM Studios. EPCOT is actually so close that hoofing it to the International Gateway (EPCOT's backdoor) isn't too taxing. If you just can't walk, though, a tram operates between the Swan and Dolphin Hotels and EPCOT that also makes a few stops along the Boardwalk. For every other destination, the ubiquitous Disney bus will be your limo.
