If you are looking for evening activities, head over to the Boardwalk resort area where you can experience shopping, restaurants, and entertainment. The Boardwalk is a short boat ride or walk from both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. It is a quarter of a mile-long promenade created around Crescent Lake and designed to look like a quaint Mid-Atlantic seaside village from the early 1900s.
Crescent Lake is surrounded by 3 Deluxe category resorts (Yacht Club, Beach Club, and Boardwalk), restaurants, and a variety of entertainment venues. You can stroll the Boardwalk any time of the day and enjoy the extras that are only a few steps out of your resort door.
If you are a sports fan and want to watch your favorite NFL team on a Sunday or take in a big sporting event, you can stop in the ESPN Club which hosts live. Schedules vary so check out ESPN Club when you visit for the current itinerary.
In the evening, the Boardwalk comes to life. The entertainment venues require guests to be 21 years or older where you can swing, rumba, or sashay around the Atlantic Dance Hall to the tunes of the 80s, 90s, or today. Enjoy dueling pianos and an energetic light shows at Jellyrolls. The two pianists entertain guests with whimsical commentary as they weave their fingers over the ivories.
But there is so much more than entertainment on the Boardwalk. Visiting one of the restaurants is a great way to start your evening. If you are looking for a sweet treat, check out the BoardWalk Bakery, Funnel Cake Cart, or Ample Hills Creamery. Sit down dining is available at Trattoria al Forno, Big River Grill, and Brewery Works, or ESPN Club offers you time off of your feet and a delicious meal. There are also additional food options at kiosks lining the lake.
