Big River Grille & Brewing Works (Table Service dining; 11:30am to 11pm)
The traditional American brewery comes to Disney in the form of the Big River Grille & Brewing Works. Moderately priced sandwiches and entrees are offered along with a wide variety of in-house brews. Seating is available both indoors and out on the BoardWalk itself.
Advance Dining Reservations are not available, but the restaurant does take reservations 24 hours in advance.
BoardWalk Bakery (Quick Service dining; 6:30am to 11pm)
Doughnuts, croissands and a wide variety of other pastries are the cornerstone of the BoardWalk Bakery. But in recent years the menu has expanded to include paninis for breakfast and lunch.
ESPN Club (Table Service dining; 11am - 2am)
Over 100 televisions line the walls of this sports-themed eatery. Live broadcasts are featured nightly including special guests from the sports world and audience participation segments. The cuisine is typical sports-bar fare: wings, chicken strips and burgers.
Advance Dining Reservations are not accepted. Plan to arrive very early on important game days (Super Bowl, college bowl games, Final Four, etc.)
Flying Fish Cafe (Table Service dining; 5:30pm to 10pm)
Arguably the finest seafood served on Walt Disney World property can be found at the Flying Fish Cafe. The menu changes frequently to suit the season and the catch. Steak and pasta dishes are available, but this place is all about the seafood.
Advance Dining Reservations are available.
Kouzzina by Cat Cora
Cat Cora, the first and only female Iron Chef on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America", teamed up with Disney to open her first table-service restaurant. The name of this eating establishement is Kouzzina by Cat Cora and it is located on the Boardwalk at the spot formerly occupied by Spoodles. The 200-seat restaurant features a Mediterranean-style cuisine that pays tribute to the Chef's Greek roots. (“Kouzzina” is Greek for kitchen). Kouzzina is open daily for breakfast and dinner.
Diners will find breakfast specialties such as blueberry orange granola pancakes and Greek-style yogurt with fresh fruit and house-made granola, or the stacked Kouzzina breakfast with two poached eggs, sweet potato hash and bacon or chicken sausage.
Dinner choices include cinnamon stewed chicken, fisherman’s stew and pastitsio (Greek-style lasagna).
The restaurant’s spacious interior features an open kitchen, wooden tables and chairs and a walk-up pizza window for casual dining at outdoor tables on the boardwalk.
Advanced Dining Reservations are available.

Luna Park (Hours: 10am to 10pm with seasonal adjustments; slide only open when lifeguards on duty)
The Luna Park pool complex upholds the New Jersey boardwalk theme of the resort with its rollercoaster-like slide. Keister Coaster is a 200-foot waterslide designed as a nod to the old wooden rollercoasters, right down to the faux clown's head which ultimately deposits guests into the pool. Also featured within the complex are the Leaping Libations pool bar, a separate swimming area for infants and toddlers, and a whirlpool spa.
Towels are provided. Lounge chairs are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Life jackets may be borrowed (free) from the Community Hall.
Leisure Pools (Hours: 10am to 10pm)
Two Leisure Pools (a.k.a. Quiet Pools) are available at the resort. Despite the name, all guests are welcome to enjoy these swimming holes. One is located right in the heart of the Villa comples, while the other is on the Inn side of the resort.
Towels and lounge chairs are also available. Lifeguards are not present at the Leisure Pools.
