Welcome to those of you joining me from the 2nd Stop ~ YourFirstVisit.net and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd on our Magical Blogorail Teal!
My favorite Disney resort is one I love to visit, yet have never seen the inside of a room. I have no immediate plans to stay there, either. But, I adore Disney's Boardwalk Resort.
The Boardwalk is unique for several reasons:
- It's design is modeled after early 20th century Atlantic City (Boardwalk Empire, anyone?)
- It has both a hotel and DVC property.
- It has no interior dining
- Aside from several outstanding dining opportunities, it also has a dance hall and a sports bar/club
The entrance is amazingly welcoming:
The lobby is adorned with beautifully ornate furniture and a miniature carousel. Walk down the halls towards the lounge (which I've heard is a wonderful place to spend time.. if you're there not pregnant or with children, which I never have been) and you'll find several of the old penny arcade turn-the-wheel movies. I remember watching those on Main Street, U.S.A. as a child and I was incredibly excited to know they're still around!
There are two entrances - underneath that awesome entrance are the doors inside the resort, but along the side are steps to my favorite part:
And along that Boardwalk is one of my favorite restaurants:
If you don't like Greek food, this might not be the place for you, but if you're a fan of moussaka, hummus, and spinach pie, step right up! Oh, and the Avgolomeno (lemon soup) is ridiculously amazing. I've tried making it at home, tried it at other restaurants, and never found anything like it!
|A big bowl of lemon soup. Yum!!|
Also at the Boardwalk: an art gallery, a brewery, the ESPN Club (you won't miss a minute of that important game - toilets in the restrooms), a ginormous store with everything from groceries to clothing, bikes, entertainers, and more!
The Boardwalk is a short boat ride away from Epcot and Hollywood Studios, but also has standard bus routes!
Make sure to stop by the Boardwalk on your next trip!!
