As things continue to change at Disney World, more and more resorts and restaurants have been reopening!
Earlier this month, the Boardwalk Inn and Villas, located near EPCOT and Hollywood Studios, reopened. And, though guests could stay at the hotel once again, some amenities still remained closed. But, now there’s another spot to dine!
Today, the Belle Vue Lounge has officially reopened in the resort and we stopped by to check it out!
The lounge opens daily in the morning from 7AM to 11AM for continental breakfast and then again in the evening from 5PM to 11PM for cocktails. And, if you’re looking for other breakfast spots in the area, you can check the new signage out front for more options.
The lounge itself is an open concept and is themed after old-fashioned seaside amusement parks from the 1930s. The seating is first-come, first-served so you can find a spot near the bar…
…in an oversized comfy chair inside…
…or out on the balcony depending on availability.
We stopped by in the evening to try out some of the cocktails and learned that you could view the menu both on your phone or on pamphlets placed on the tables. We opted to pull it up on our phones and found that there are 13 different specialty cocktail options PLUS select non-alcoholic mocktails, so there’s sure to be something for everyone in the family to enjoy.
And, we had to give a few a try!
We ordered up the Smoked Turkey that is made with Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon, Red Stag Black Cherry Bourbon, Grenadine, Minute Maid® Premium Lemonade, with a hint of Hickory Smoke garnished with Luxardo Gourmet Maraschino Cherries for $15…
…and the Ultimate Long Island Iced Tea, which has Bacardi Superior Rum, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Hendrick’s, Cointreau, and Sweet-and-Sour with a splash of Coca-Cola for $15.
It sure was exciting to see another lounge reopen over at Disney’s BoardWalk! Of course, we’ll continue to keep an eye out for more dining spots that are reopening around Disney World, so be sure to stay tuned to AllEars for the latest!
