This Deluxe Tier resort fits in nicely with the classic Northeastern seaboard boardwalk theme of years gone by. The lighthearted, yet elegant atmosphere, makes this resort family friendly and fun for all ages! The Boardwalk Inn is within walking distance of EPCOT and Disney’s Hollywood Studios. With close proximity to its neighboring resorts-The Yacht and Beach Club Resort-the dining options are almost endless!
