|This Disney Resort Hotel is a Military Disney Tips Favorite Resort!|
BoardWalk is our second favorite Epcot Deluxe Resort. The walk is just a little longer than that at the Beach Club (our favorite) and reservations with a Disney Armed Forces Salute Discount seem to be less available here.
We love walking along the boardwalk especially in the evening when the “street” performers are out.Related Posts:
