Construction walls down in the lobby at Disney's BoardWalk Resort reveal only minor changes so far

Disney's BoardWalk Inn lobby refurbishment - March 1 2023
Posted: Monday March 6, 2023 11:41am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The construction walls have been removed in the BoardWalk Inn resort lobby, revealing a largely unchanged interior.

Work has been limited to the check-in desks, which are now slightly separated into pods rather than a single line of desks.

It isn't clear yet if this is the extent of the lobby refurbishment, or if more changes will come later.

Elsewhere at the resort, the lobby area restrooms are currently closed for refurbishment, and the Concierge Lounge at the resort will be temporarily closed from March 11 through the end of April 2023.

Corn dog stand is actually pretty much ready to go. Maybe they are still waiting on staffing or final approvals?

Thank you! It needed to be said! He’s been asked to double his working hours to 2 per day, every other day, with weekends and holidays off. He needs all the hydration he can get in order to finish the job by the 60th anniversary of WDW!

He’s doing the work of an entire construction crew - let the man drink!

It could be 1 worker with 2 bottles of water!

The bakery is behind on their DVC points payments.

How nice. The lone worker found a friend.... Meanwhile at the boardwalk siding replacement, it's all hands on deck.

Well, the heat has been oppressive, so maybe the one worker needed 2 bottles? :cool: It's probably the same ONE that is working on the Cake Bake Shop.

I didn't say it was lux, but that they decorated in styles that copied lux.

Breaking: 2 Bottles of water mean that there are at least 2 people working on the corn dog stand.

I grew up on LBI...There was nothing really luxe there....and AC before Casinos, was not quite luxe....Remnants of old seaside Victorian architecture....Nautical yacht club kind of stuff.... but nothing really fancy....

I grew up on the Jersey shore... Pt. Pleasant, Seaside, Wildwood... There's nothing out of place about that building. So far. Boardwalks have always gone out of their way to copy elite decorations of bygone times creating a mash-up of styles to look lux.

I think we have all been saying this all along.... not quite the right vibe for The Boardwalk.... So that means they will be adding a Jersey Shore themed diner to the Grand Floridian....lol

The Cake Bake signage screams Grand Floridian as does the whole vibe. Has no business being at Boardwalk.
