It was a great pleasure to go over to this zone and enjoy the lakefront restaurants at Disney. A lot of people that vacation in Orlando miss out on the fantastic free area next to Epcot. The Boardwalk is a must do place and it is excellent for all ages and families. There is a huge sidewalk that goes all the way around the big lake, plus great Disney Shopping and Dining.
One of the places at the Boardwalk to see is the Atlantic Dance Hall. This is a huge restaurant and club zone used for events and entertainment. Keep a good eye on the event schedule at the Disney's Boardwalk, like the Home Depot College Football Awards Show which is show live on ESPN TV.
