Disney’s BoardWalk has shops, restaurants and nightclubs surrounding a lake.
I’ve visited during the day when you can see everything and in my experience it was very quiet so we had a great browse of the shops and had an awesome ice-cream. We have also been after dark when it looks really magical with street artists, games and live entertainment.
One recommendation for the evening entertainment is the duelling pianos at Jellyrolls which we really enjoyed while having a beer. There are lots of eateries available from a bakery, a pizza window for slices of pizza pie stall, ice creams, funnel cake kiosks and hot dog stands. We ate at the ESPN bar which sells your typical array of burgers, sandwiches, fries etc with lots of sports available on the screens and a small shopping area selling selected sporting goods.
The thing that I really loved about the Boardwalk at night was the fact that I could go and watch the Epcot fireworks for free!
