The Boardwalk is a shopping and entertainment district located steps from EPCOT and a little wander from Disney’s Hollywood Studios. From good eats, iconic views and awesome proximity to the magic…you’re in good hands when you plan to spend a few hours on the Boardwalk at Walt Disney World!

Things you Don’t Want to Miss at Disney’s Boardwalk


Surrey Bikes

WHEEEEEE! Renting a Surrey Bike for an adventure around the EPCOT Resort Area is a fun way to spend some down-time at Walt Disney World without leaving the “Disney Bubble”.


ESPN Club

Classic pub food mixed with an environment that appeals to any fan…you’re going to want to hang out and watch the game on 100+ screens in this 13,000 square foot sports haven!

Oh, and they’ve got nachos, milkshakes and a solid beer selection.


Jellyrolls

When you go to a dueling piano bar at Disney World, you’re taking a step towards having a magical evening of showing off your random knowledge of Disney song lyrics! Hitting up Jellyrolls is a great idea after you’ve finished watching the fireworks at EPCOT or if you just want a little bit of 21+ fun.

Just an FYI – there is a cover charge, so factor that into your budget before you plan to go as it’s not something that you want to be caught off guard with.


Pin Trading

One of my favorite Pin Trading Tips is to spend time at resorts, as they usually get better pins without having the foot-traffic of the theme parks. Not only do you have the stores at the Boardwalk, but you also have the stores and cast members at:

  • Disney’s Boardwalk Resort
  • Disney’s Swan & Dolphin Resort
  • Disney’s Yacht Resort
  • Disney’s Beach Club Resort

Ice Cream Flight

If you’ve heard of Beer Flights and wondered what else they “flight”….well your answer is found at Ample Hills Creamery! The Ice Cream Flight with up to 6 different flavors has the potential to create lasting memories (or epic Instagram-story moments) with brain-freezes.

Just a sampling of the flavor palette:

  • Peppermint Pattie
  • Sweet Cream & Cookies
  • Chocolate Milk & Cookies
  • Ooey Gooey Butter Cake
  • Cotton Candy
  • Malty Salty Pretzel Punch
  • and more!

Honorable Mentions

Dining experiences are everywhere! From Flying Fish signature restaurant to Trattoria al Forno casual dining and everything in between…you’re not going to go hungry when you’re at the Boardwalk!

Plus, if nothing appeals to your current tastes…you’re a 5-minute walk to EPCOT’s World Showcase!!

CUPCAKES! Remember that one of the highlights of a visit to the Boardwalk Bakery is their selection of baked goods and cupcakes:)
