Welcome to Atlantic City, circa 1930, complete with a real boardwalk, beautiful landscaping and fun, free nightly entertainment that will surprise and delight the whole family! Just one difference of course: this Boardwalk is at Walt Disney World!
Every evening, the Boardwalk Inn lights up, and the mood turns festive as a collection of roaming buskers—including musicians, magicians and jugglers—take to the wooden-planked stage of the boardwalk for your entertainment.
Let the elegance of a bygone era overtake you as you enjoy the show, then grab a couple of slices from the Boardwalk Pizza Window or–even better–a couple of corn dogs before the next show begins.
As you walk back to your room (or head toward one of the many transportation options), smile tiredly, tuck those memories away in your heart and realize: you’ve just had yourself a nice, inexpensive Disney evening.
