History[]

This hotel was designed to be reminiscent of the boardwalks that were famous along Atlantic City and Ocean City, New Jersey in the 1920s–1940s. The sherbet-colored facades, flagged turrets, striped awnings, and "Keister Coaster" water slide resembling a wooden roller coaster were all inspired by that bygone era.

Disney's BoardWalk Inn is only a short walk from Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios . Water transportation is available free-of-charge to Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Yacht and Beach Club resorts, and Walt Disney World Swan and Walt Disney World Dolphin resorts.

The "Keister Coaster," a 200-foot (61 m)-long water slide, is located at the south end of the main pool. There is a quiet pool located just south of the main pool, and another is located at the east side of the property. Other recreational activities include watercraft rentals, tennis courts, fishing, bike rentals and a biking/jogging trail, an arcade, and an exercise room.

Incidents[]

On June 29, 2000, a waiter and a child were held hostage by the child's father in a hotel room over domestic issues. During the hostage situation, other guests were evacuated and given alternative accommodations in the resort. The man released the hostages and handed himself over to authorities in the early hours of June 30, 2000.
