At Disney World the Boardwalk area presents a number of different dining opportunities to fit whatever mood you are in.
If you are not staying at one of the Epcot area resorts (Boardwalk Inn, Boardwalk Villas, Beach Club, Yacht Club, Swan, or Dolphin) you may not have thought to visit the Boardwalk, but it is definitely worth the trip.
Getting to the Boardwalk
You can get to the Boardwalk by exiting Epcot through the International Gateway and taking the 5 minute walk or the boat launch. From Disney’s Hollywood Studios you can take the Boat Launch. From the other Disney parks and Downtown Disney you can catch a bus headed to the Boardwalk Resort.
