Unparalleled Location and Convenience

Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is a deluxe level resort in an unbeatable location!  It places you just steps away from both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. A leisurely stroll or a quick boat ride will take you to the parks’ entrances.  That’s very convenient and eliminates time on transportation.

Being within close proximity to 2 parks means you can maximize your time on your vacation by avoiding long commutes. In addition, you are close to the Disney Skyliner station at International Gateway just outside of Epcot. That means you have easy access to the dining amenities at other Skyliner resorts such as the Riviera, Caribbean Beach and more!

Timeless Elegance and Thematic Ambiance

Inspired by the charming seaside resorts of the early 20th century, Disney’s BoardWalk Inn exudes a classic, elegant ambiance that transports guests back in time. The stunning waterfront promenade, complete with twinkling lights, quaint shops, and lively entertainment, creates a vibrant atmosphere that is both nostalgic and captivating.


The resort’s theming extends to its meticulously designed rooms and suites, which feature luxurious amenities and comfortable furnishings. Whether you choose a garden view, water view, or standard room, you will find yourself enveloped in a unique blend of whimsy and sophistication.


Currently, the BoardWalk Inn is undergoing a “sprucing up”.  The renovation includes room refurbishments, new dining locations and an upgrade overall.  The work is being done in sections so the resort remains open to guests.  There is no official date of completion, however the 2024 booking pricing/booking window recently opened, and Disney announced saving promotions for this fall and holiday season.  You could be among the first to get a glimpse of the new rooms and space. 

Abundance of Dining and Entertainment Options

One of the highlights of staying at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is the exceptional variety of dining and entertainment choices right at your doorstep.

The BoardWalk itself is home to an array of restaurants, ranging from casual eateries to fine dining experiences. Indulge in delicious Italian cuisine at Trattoria al Forno or savor seafood delights at the Flying Fish.  Most recently, the former BoardWalk Bakery reopened as the BoardWalk Deli, and construction continues on the Cake Bake Shop, a new table service restaurant.
