    We are visiting soon and staying at Polynesian. One afternoon we would love to get ice cream on the Boardwalk and then walk to International Gateway (we have reservations for Epcot that day). Can we take an Uber to the Boardwalk Resort for this purpose?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Yes, you can take an Uber or Lyft to Disney's BoardWalk, even if you are not staying there, or dining with a table service restaurant reservation. Disney does require a dining reservation for guests driving their own car, with the intent of parking. But if you are just being dropped off, you should not have a problem. I have done exactly that before.

    Now I will confess I am a bit of an ice cream fanatic. A visit to the BoardWalk Ice Cream shop is never a bad idea! It is my favorite dessert, by a wide margin. However, opening soon will be a new place to take care of your sweet tooth. Sometime in 2023, Disney's BoardWalk will welcome a new haven for sweet treats, the Cake Bake Shop Bakery by Gwendolyn Rogers. I happen to live just minutes away from one of her shops here in Indiana, and it is a delicious indulgence. Stop by if you can!

    While I love a stroll along the BoardWalk, the sail is pretty nice too. The Friendship Boats can also replace that 1/3 of a mile walk (1/2 km) with a leisurely ride on Crescent Lake that will also drop you off right at the International Gateway to EPCOT.

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
