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.

I still think that it really suffers from a lack of options to get there and back. There have been times I've been on a solo trip around the area, and thought about going there, but there's just no way to get there and back without using Uber (which I hate using). Give me a bus service, or even some parking if I drove down. Taking a bus/driving to Springs, getting off, waiting for another bus just takes too long for me. 45 minutes of travel each way to get to that place for a couple of drinks isn't worth it, especially now that there is nowhere to like watch a game as well.

She did, however, sing at the opening of the first Cake Bake Shop in 1957, so there’s that.

That place isn’t good enough for succulents, I’ve never seen one photo of Julie Andrews in or around that place!

Is "succulents" NJ code for adolescents hanging around and smoking?

They should add succulents around the outside to give a more authentic Jersey shore feel that will get folks through its doors.

No, Atlantic is still only Thursday-Sunday, 8pm-1am. No cover charge, though the atmosphere is usually extremely quiet/awkward. Shame because it is such a beautiful space.

Is ADH still open 7 days a week?

Updates from earlier this week: Assuming our favorite rolling planters are here to obscure the work being done to convert this into the corn dog location. And four people working at once on Cake Bake!! Repaving has made it all the way down to Jellyrolls & Atlantic Dance.

they are putting dormers on the lower roof they are still a long way off...and the way they have been progressing it will be late 2024 before they finish... but of course, you never know if they all of the sudden decide to start building with a full crew and a deadline...

It is unbelievable this building is still open and empty.

Has there been any noticeable progress? I still see no walls. I don’t get it, is this company paying rent to Disney while doing nothing with the property for years?

Me too! Late 2029 when it opens should be exciting.
