It has been quite a few years since we have been to the Boardwalk. There just doesn't seem to be the same selection of places to dine. We enjoyed the Flying Fish, but other than that, we didn't see much that interested us. Also, there didn't seem to be a good variety of places. Most are pretty expensive and it... More

It's nice to spend time here away from the hustle and bustle of the theme parks. It has a lovely traditional beachfront feel to it and it's a very pleasant place to stroll around at any time of day. It becomes busier in the evenings, but still maintains a family feel to it. It also has some good dining options.... More

Came here with my husband on a whim after visiting a park so we didn't plan to stay for long but ended up staying a decent amount of time. The views of the lake are pretty nice and I would highly suggest grabbing an ice cream cone and walking around the boardwalk. Maybe stop for a view of Spaceship Earth.

I had heard so much about disney's boardwalk but I have to be honest I was disappointed. We visited during the day and it was rather quiet. I believe it is totally different at night. It was a mixture of shops, cafes, and a dance hall. You could watch the boats go by on the lake, walk passed the beach... More

Nothing like feeling like cattle in a heat wave. The monorail was reminiscent of the subway system in NYC. Hot, crowded and miserable. I will not be doing that again.

Years ago it was a fun place, not focused on drinking and partying. Disney Springs is better. ESPN needs to close down.

Great restaurants, bars and shopping await on the Boardwalk. There is a fun dueling piano bar and a dance club. Pizza by the slice and ice cream are sold. Some small boardwalk games.
