Disney's Boardwalk Part 3: The Other Nightly Entertainment

Most visitors to Walt Disney World enjoy an evening visiting Disney Springs, but few know of the nightly entertainment, shopping, and great food found on Disney’s Boardwalk.

The Boardwalk captures the essence of historic boardwalks such as Coney Island and Atlantic City.

My family often enjoys dining in one of the over 40 restaurants  on the Boardwalk and strolling the classic wooden promenade on our visits to Walt Disney World Resorts, Orlando, Florida.

You can reach the Boardwalk by exiting Epcot’s International Gateway  or taking a boat ride from Hollywood Studios.  You can also take the Disney buses, your own car, or the new Minnie Van service to the Boardwalk.  

If you are lucky enough to be staying in one  of the Resorts we told you about in Complete Guide To Disney’s Boardwalk Part 1: The Resorts, then you will enjoy all this area has to offer.

My family always enjoys a special dinner at the Flying Fish when visiting WDW.  In fact, we celebrated my youngest son’s third birthday there.  


After our amazing meal, we were pleasantly surprised to discover the street performers on the Boardwalk.  

As you stroll along the boardwalk taking in the sights (and maybe an ice cream cone) you will find two or three different entertainers doing magic tricks, miming, and other comedic acts to entertain and enthrall the guests.

On this particular night, one of the entertainers selected my eldest son for his performance, which proved to be quite a comic act!  We were laughing hysterically as he and my younger son interacted with the street performer.

In addition to the nightly entertainment, you can also view the fireworks at both Hollywood Studios and Epcot.

The Boardwalk is really a hidden gem at Walt Disney World.  Many visitors are not aware it exists, but for those of who do, it is a special place.
