For this week's post we have chosen a Disney-inspired Haiku from the Mouse of Zen that meant something to us. When I read this particular haiku, I immediately thought of all the wonderful experiences I've had with my family at The Boardwalk in Walt Disney World.
We've stayed at Disney's BoardWalk Villas (BWV) many times since becoming Disney Vacation Club (DVC) members in 1997. Disney's BoardWalk complex is made up of Disney's BoardWalk Villas Resort (BWV), Disney's BoardWalk Inn, a convention center and Disney's BoardWalk dining, shopping and entertainment area.
The BoardWalk is located between Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studios on 25 acre Crescent Lake, styled after the Atlantic coast resorts of the 1930s.
When the sun goes down the carnival lights come on and the mood of The Boardwalk turns festive. There are turn of the century games of chance, entertainers, and ragtime music can be heard wafting in the air from Jelly Rolls, the piano bar.
One of my favorite pastimes is strolling the Boardwalk arm in arm with my husband, enjoying the charming atmosphere, watching the boats, taking it all in. Much the same way couples in the 1930's would have. The most romantic time of the night to stroll is after the guest have retired, the entertainers have gone and the BoardWalk is silent.
Have a Magical Day.
