In a strange turn of events, the Boardwalk Resort has added a snack bar in the lobby. Taking the place of the old concierge desk, this small snack stand was designed to assist in activating the resort refillable drink mugs. Seeing potential for other items to be sold, the resort recently added a popcorn machine and bottled sodas. There’s also complimentary water available (a spa variety and just ice).
The entire Boardwalk lobby smells like popcorn now, which I guess adds to the ‘seaside amusement park’ feel of the resort. Fingers crossed nobody burns a batch! The lobby snack stand doesn’t have any set hours at this moment, but the Cast Member working the stand said late morning through the evening. Take note that while this stand does sell the resort refillable mug, you can not get it refilled here. For refills you will need to visit The Bakery or Belle Vue Lounge.
