For dining options at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, you have several to choose from because of the unique setting.
Trattoria al Forno
Serving both breakfast and dinner, this old-world Italian eatery is sure to impress the pasta lover. This restaurant used to feature the Bon Voyage Breakfast where you could meet Ariel, Eric, Rapunzel and Flynn however, since covid they have not brought back the characters. This was always a family favorite because it was one of the very few character breakfasts that you didn’t need to be in a park for. Hopefully, they will soon!
Big River Grille & Brewing Works
If you are looking for a place to relax after a long day at the parks to grab a drink and dinner then you should check out this place. With a rotating beer list, you can always find something new to try. Theor menu has something for everyone from salads, soups, sandwiches and burgers to brewhouse classics like baby back ribs.
If you are looking for a quick grab-and-go meal this is a great spot. In the mornings they have a great selection of pastries and later in the day they have several sandwich offerings for a nice light meal.
Pizza lovers will love having this convenient window on the boardwalk to grab a whole pizza or just a couple of slices. They offer cheese, pepperoni, sausage & mushroom, and veggie.
If you are looking for something a little nicer then Flying Fishis a great choice. You can get a great meal with surf and turf offerings. The most impressive is the tomahawk steak for two. That will set you back about $150 though.
If you are just looking for somewhere to grab a drink the Boardwalk has several great options.
This is our favorite place to grab a drink. They have a really great menu and the magician themeing is fantastic. My personal favorite is the Magic Mirror.
Leaping Horse Libations
This is a great place to grab a snack and a drink on your way to the next adventure.
Boardwalk Joe’s Marvelous Margaritas
Convenient booth to grab a margarita while on the Boardwalk
Belle Vue Lounge
Quiet little lounge to grab a drink surrounded by 1930’s style Atlantic City vibes.
You have a few different options when it comes to transportation to the theme parks from the Boardwalk Inn. If you are going to either Epcot or Hollywood Studios you can either walk or take the Friendship boats. If you are traveling to the Magic Kingdom or Animal Kingdom you will need to take the Disney busses. Alternatively, if you are looking for a scenic ride, you could walk over to the international gateway at Epcot and hop on the Skyliner to go to Hollywood Studios.
During your stay at Walt Disney World, there is always something to do at the resorts. At the Boardwalk Inn, you can take a walk around the boardwalk area and even go over and check out the Beach Club & Yacht Club resorts. Sometimes it is fun to go grab something to eat at one of their restaurants because it is so close.
Fantasia Gardens & Fairways Mini Golf is also really close. They offer a combined 36 holes that can be challenging yet really fun. Fantasia Gardens is themed after the classic Disney film Fantasia. They are open from 10am-10pm and are $14 for adults and children over 10, $12 for kids 3-9. Fantasia Fairways is best suited for those that like a challenge. This 18 hold course resembles a miniature version of a real golf course… sand traps and all!
Atlantic Dance Hall
For guests who are age 21 and over the Atlantic Dance hall is a great place to dance the night away to hits from the 80’s, 90’s and today!
Jelly Rolls (temporarily unavailable)
Popular piano bar to grab a drink and relax. This spot is for guests who are age 21 and over.
