Around Cresent Lake (or a trip to the Epcot Resorts)

An easy alternative to spending time in the parks or your own resort is to explore the Epcot resorts. This includes the Boardwalk, Yacht and Beach Club and the Swan and the Dolphin. It is possible to walk from resort to resort or even rent a bicycle designed to carry multiple people to wind around Crescent Lake.

One of the best means to explore these hotels is to walk through the International Gateway that sits between Great Britain and France in Epcot. A visitor can also take a boat from the Disney Hollywood Studios and dock at any of these resorts or at Epcot.

If you take the time to explore these unique resorts you will discover a wonder to the senses. The Yacht and Beach Club Resorts feature one of the best pools on the property. Although you need to stay at those resorts to swim in the pool, it is fun to see the pirate ship peeking over the sandy beaches. Beaches and Cream has a great sandwich and ice cream shop worth checking out for a quick snack. The Yachtsman Steakhouse is reputed to be one of the best restaurants on property. Cape May Café is a great spot to enjoy seafood and other traditionally American fare.

Designed by the architect Michael Graves, the Swan and the Dolphin Resorts offer a visitor a number of different restaurants and lounges. Within walking distance is the Fantasia miniature golf course or the Disney Hollywood Studios Park.

The final hotel in this group is the Boardwalk Inn and Villas. This resort offers fun both day and night. Along the Boardwalk there are games and entertainment, funnel cakes and ice cream and fine dining opportunities and a sweet shop. At night you can find magicians, a piano bar and dance hall. Inside the lobby there are both a model carousel and roller coaster. A visitor can sit on the back deck and rock while people watching.

This area provides a great variety of things to see and do. The senses may be overloaded but the experience is well worth the visit to these five hotels.
