Disney’s Boardwalk Inn

| | |

Disney’s Boardwalk Inn is a deluxe resort located in the EPCOT resort area. It features a nostalgic vibe that takes you back in time to visit the east coast in the early 20th century. The resort shares amenities with Disney’s BoardWalk Villas, a Disney Vacation Club property.

Resort Overview

This charming resort opened in 1996 and is designed to take you back in time to turn-of-the-century Atlantic City. As you walk into the lobby, it’s like walking into the Great Gatsby era as you see hardwood floors, elegant furniture, and subtle touches of life on the boardwalk. There are models of a rollercoaster and a carousel from the era and during the holiday season, don’t miss the gingerbread models!

Located along the shores of Crescent Lake, it offers unique dining, a fun pool, and plenty of entertainment options at Disney’s Boardwalk. In addition, this resort is in a great location. There are more dining options available a short walk away at the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort and Disney’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts.
