4. Disney’s BoardWalk Inn & Villas
Discover the bygone boardwalks of yesteryear at this popular entertainment venue and Deluxe resort, located right in the heart of the Epcot Area. Whether you come out seeking to explore the action-packed promenade or have decided to stay here yourself in one of the rooms or villas, you’re in for a timeless experience full of fun and folly. Charm and nostalgia fuse perfectly with modern musing as you will see in the surrounding entertainment venues, carnival-like activities, waterfront views, and so much more.
The elegance crafted in the resort’s intricate design and décor draws inspiration from old Atlantic City as it was back in the late 19th/early 20th century—a timeless social hub. And like any social hub you can expect to find impeccable dining right on-location. There are a number of spectacular options to choose from, but two of the BoardWalk’s most highly recommended choices are Flying Fish and Trattoria al Forno. The first is a fine dining dinner experience that presents masterfully crafted sustainable land and sea creations that are both aesthetic and appetizing. Watch through the open kitchen as your own meal takes form amidst the exquisite yet eclectic setting, which sets the mood for a most elegant and enticing dinner.
Trattoria al Forno is a well-loved Italian establishment known for its delightful old world traditional fare at dinnertime as well as its newly offered Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast. The latter has already earned standing as a favorite character dining experience for families, particularly for those with young girls. Here you get to enjoy decadent novel takes on traditional breakfast offerings along with personal visits to your table by Ariel and Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid and Rupunzel and Flynn Rider from Tangled. Dinner is an affair sure to take your taste buds on a full-fledged regional tour through Italy, with such delights ranging from city life to the rural countryside. This experience also comes paired with a whole host of authentic imported Italian wines, available by the bottle or glass.
