    We are staying at the Boardwalk for the last week in June. We have a 2 year old and a 12 year old, what activities do they have for these ages. Is it true that we will be able to walk to other resorts as well. Thanks, Rossy

    Hi Rossy,

    Your family is going to love the Boardwalk resort area. It is situated in an ideal location, within walking distance to Epcot and Hollywood Studios, as well as a short walk to the Beach and Yacht Club Resort as well as the Dolphin and Swan. You will also be within walking distance to Fantasia Gardens miniature golf course. Don't worry though, if your feet are tired, there is also a boat that runs between the Boardwalk, its neighboring resorts and the two parks.

    You will find a number of activities for your family to enjoy. There is a great swimming pool with a large slide that resembles an old wooden roller coaster. Most afternoons, the lifeguards entertain the guests with a number of fun pool activities like scavenger hunts, dance and hula hoop contests and more. Located near the pool is a small playground and just across from the pool area is one of two arcades at the Boardwalk.

    The Boardwalk area itself features unique shops, restaurants and lounges. You can find a yummy bakery and sweet shop for breakfast and dessert. The ESPN Club also offers an arcade and at one end of the Boardwalk is a number of carnival games and stands. Your family can rent a surrey bike and there is a great grass area for running off some energy.

    In the evenings, from approximately 6pm to 11pm, you will find a number of strolling entertainers like magicians and jugglers ready to amaze you and make you laugh all for free. The area is a wonderful place to take a casual stroll around the lake. You can also visit the Beach Club resort for their nightly movie on the beach. You can find additional information about the Boardwalk Resort here.

    Wishing your family an amazing trip!
