About Disney's Boardwalk Inn
Steps away from Epcot's International Gateway and a short stroll to Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's BoardWalk Inn offers easy access to Orlando theme park magic, by way of Atlantic City.
With just 371 rooms, the Deluxe AAA Four Diamond resort, which debuted in 1996, is the smallest among Walt Disney World's on-site hotel accommodations. However, its central location lends an open door to an extensive 1930s seaside scene, complete with a mini-Midway, mimes, magicians and one of the greatest varieties of drinking and dining options you'll find at any Disney property.
In fair weather, families flock to the resort's Luna Park Pool, featuring a clown coaster slide, but when the mercury dips, there's still plenty of action to be found on the BoardWalk. Guests can rent a surrey bike and take a trip around Crescent Lake, interact with live entertainers, sing-along with dueling pianists at Jellyrolls and visit a variety of shops, eateries and even an upscale art gallery.
More formal than the neighboring Beach Club Resort, but still family-friendly, the BoardWalk Inn offers family guests attractive amenities like an all-day family activity center and a tot-friendly playground, plus spacious accommodations, all freshly renovated in 2008.
