Disney World Bakery Throw Down: Boardwalk Bakery

Welcome to the third bakery in our Disney World Bakery Throw Down: The Boardwalk Bakery!

Boardwalk Bakery

Atmosphere
Located on the Disney World Boardwalk, the Boardwalk Bakery is within walking distance of many of Disney World’s hotels and attractions. It’s a great place to take a break from a day in either Epcot or Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Or just head downstairs from your hotel room at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn and Villas!

As you approach the bakery, the windows will remind you what’s available…

…and who’s responsible!

Along the windows, you’ll see several outdoor tables and chairs. Be sure to snag them quickly; this is the bakery’s only seating! Of course, you could always stroll along the boardwalk with your purchases and find seating along the way.

Head inside the double doors and you’ll be greeted by a small space bordered by baked goods and condiment counters. Look over the counter to your left, and you might see some Disney bakers making specialty items for one of the resorts, or even a wedding cake!

And the bakers’ racks will be slowly filling up with freshly baked items:

While waiting for your order, take a peek at the wall behind those bakers’ racks to see the detailed images of baked goods painted on the tiles. As usual, Disney spares no expense when it comes to detail!

Also, take a few minutes to look beyond those counters and see some real bakers at work; this is one of the few places to see a real behind-the-scenes look at the type of baking that happens in Disney’s biggest, busiest, and most professional bakeries! I wasn’t kidding about that wedding cake I mentioned earlier — they really do make them here!

    We are going to Disney in Decemeber and it will be my husband’s first time, I was wanting to have the bakery make him a custom cake and have it sitting behind the glass. That way when we are looking at the cakes his will be there as a surprise. Does anyone know if they do this, or if they sit the custom cakes out like that? Thanks!

    CMartin — Check out our cake ordering FAQ: http://www.disneyfoodblog.com/disney-world-cakes-faq/. This has a number for the “cake hotline,” which should be able to answer your questions about having a custom cake “surprise!”
