Boardwalk

Disney's BoardWalk is an entertainment complex at the Walt Disney World Resort. First opened in 1996, the BoardWalk lies alongside Crescent Lake and is situated between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios. The resort is owned and operated by Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. The Inn, Atlantic Dance Hall, and other features of the boardwalk were designed by Robert A.M. Stern.

The BoardWalk entertainment district lies along a 1/4-mile long authentic boardwalk, reminiscent of Coney Island, New York. Guests can rent surreys or bicycles to travel around the Epcot resorts, enjoy classic midway games and street performers, go dancing at the Atlantic Dance Hall, or enjoy a "dueling pianos" show at Jellyroll's.

The BoardWalk features a wide range of restaurants. The Big River Grille & Brewing Works is the only microbrewery at Walt Disney World, and serves American cuisine along with its unique selection of beers. ESPN Club is a modern sports bar presented by the Disney-owned sports network, complete with broadcast facilities for special events. Kouzzina by celebrity chef Cat Cora offers Mediterranean cuisine for breakfast and dinner; prior to 2009, the location was occupied by a restaurant named Spoodles.

The BoardWalk is also home to the BoardWalk Inn and the BoardWalk Villas.
