    Am I able to park at the Boardwalk Inn if I have a dining reservation at the boardwalk?

    Hi, Nichole, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with a question about your upcoming trip.

    The global pandemic has caused some changes in and around the Walt Disney World Resort. One of those changes indeed does prohibit visiting Disney resort hotels for the sake of having a look around or shopping. The good news, though, is that as long as you have a confirmed dining reservation, you are welcome to park your car at the resort where you will be dining. When you arrive, a Cast Member at the security gate will confirm your reservation and direct you where to park. I can tell you from experience that, depending upon where you are directed to park, the walk from your car to the restaurant can be quite a haul. Be sure to allow plenty of time to arrive.

    Disney's BoardWalk Inn is home to the lovely Trattoria al Forno, a family-friendly restaurant that serves up traditional Italian favorites. Whether you intend to dine there or elsewhere, you might want to take a stroll around Crescent Lake after your meal. It's a great place to stretch your legs and work off those dinner calories! The trip around the lake will treat you to some delightful scenery.

    I hope that helps, Nichole. Have fun planning the rest of your vacation and don't hesitate to stop in again if we can be of further assistance!
