The Best Bar on WDW Property?

Well, my friends, if the BoardWalk Resort’s Belle Vue Lounge isn’t the best bar on Walt Disney World property, it has to be one of the best themed!


Also referred to as the Belle Vue Room (by its bartenders), this quaint and beautifully-furnished venue is a throwback to yesteryear.





Mid 1900’s radio shows pour out of the speakers.  Wonderful cocktails are served by its small, yet well-stocked, bar.  Board games are even available for all to enjoy!



Open in the morning for, mainly, a Continental breakfast, the Belle Vue is a great way to spend an evening with a delicious refreshment, friends, and family.

Folks, everyone is flocking to nearby AbracadaBar.  The problem with that newly-opened venue is that it is very small.  Can’t find a seat there?  That’s not a shock.

Yikes!  Where do I start?

Anyway, do you remember the question I fielded a few weeks ago?  Fantasy baseball expert, Joel Henard, was heading to Major League Baseball’s Winter Meetings as a camera man for Bleacher Report, and he asked, “How can I get to the Dolphin?”

WDW Recon: The Belle Vue Lounge

One of our favorite things to do is to chill at one of WDW’s many lounges. I’ll bet you know which ones I mean – places like Tambu Lounge (Polynesian), Crew’s Cup Lounge (Yacht Club), and Belle Vue Lounge (BoardWalk Inn).

If you’ve never been to the Belle Vue, in the mornings, it is a quick stop for breakfast. Grab yourself some coffee, milk, juice, bagels, fruit, yogurt, cold cereal or muffins. They even have small versions of Mickey muffins! In the evenings, however, they don’t serve food. Or, so we thought.

The bartenders – Allen and Tim – at the Belle Vue are fantastic! This trip, we asked them about the absence of food or snack options. What we were told is …
