There are so many other things to do at the Walt Disney World® Resort day or night. Choose from dining with dinosaurs to a distinctly Disney shopping extravaganza to catching incredible live music and shows!
Encompassing Crescent Lake, Disney’s BoardWalk is "a village on the water" located right next door to the Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin. It is accessible by walkways connecting to our resort. Disney's BoardWalk was developed and modeled after turn of the 20th century seaside towns, such as the boardwalk environment in Cape May, NJ and Coney Island. Disney's BoardWalk contains more than 9,000 square feet of shops, restaurants and nightclubs. Attendees can stroll along Disney's BoardWalk during the day to explore the unusual shops and restaurants. In the evening, the nightlife heats up with street performers, food vendors, midway games and lots of live entertainment. There is no admission fee to enjoy this spectacular area.
