Date Night at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Resort

Disney is thought of as a family destination, but it can also be the most romantic place on Earth! Throughout the parks and properties are restaurants, experiences and locations that are couple-friendly and ideal for an evening for two.

Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Resort is one of the best date night locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Styled after the Atlantic City boardwalk of yesteryear, the resort boasts fantastic dining options, scenic views and adult-only entertainment options.

My suggestions for a memorable date night experience at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn Resort…


The Flying Fish Café is a contemporary and modern restaurant with incredible cocktail options and an extensive menu. The menu includes steak, pork, pasta and several seafood dishes. For dessert, the PB&J Crème Brule is a favorite as well as the Trio of Boardwalk Concession Treats that makes for a great selection to share!

Jellyrolls is a piano bar for guests over the age of 21 that offers great music and cocktails. The musicians take requests (my favorite is the “Ducktales” theme song) and sing-a-longs are encouraged. There is a cover charge associated with admission and further details including group reservations can be obtained by calling Jellyrolls at 407-560-8770.

Wanna’ Dance? Then the Atlantic Dance Hall is the place for you and your special someone. DJs play songs from the 80’s to current hits while you spend your evening on the dance floor. Check Disney’s website for announcements and theme nights prior to your visit.

The BoardWalk features some carnival style games that encourage friendly competition. Play a few and win some fun prizes to take home that remind you of your date night.

The Finale:

Grab a funnel cake on the BoardWalk and head over to the bridge between the BoardWalk and Walt Disney World’s Swan and Dolphin resorts. Here, you will get a view of the Illuminations fireworks at Epcot starting at 9PM. You probably will not be able to hear the music from the show; however what could be more romantic than a terrific view and sharing some sweets with your sweetheart?

Whatever you choose to do during your time at the BoardWalk, you are sure to have a magical evening!

Do you have any BoardWalk fun tips? Is there a special game or activity that you look forward to during each visit to the BoardWalk?

  1. Great suggestions, Cara! My hubster and I had a wonderful date night on our last trip to The World. We ate outside on the Boardwalk at The Big River Grille and Brewing Works. We had the guy riding by on the piano/bike play our wedding song (You’ve Got a Friend in Me). It’s so romantic to stroll all the way around the boards and listen to the sounds of the sea gulls that are piped in, lending to the authentic atmosphere. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to walk off your meal, you can walk all the way to Epcot. We ended the night at Jellyrolls and had an absolute blast singing along!

    • Laura, Your date night sounds like so much fun! I love that you requested your wedding song to be played; I bet that made the evening so memorable! The BoardWalk really does have some fantastic entertainment options for adults. Thanks so much for sharing your special date night experience!
