Grabbing a quick bite to eat and enjoying the BoardWalk Inn and Villa‘s relaxing and eponymous boardwalk is a simple pleasure of a Walt Disney World vacation. And the BoardWalk Pizza Window has been a staple of the resort since the old days.
In August, this quick service locale unveiled a new menu that included more pizza options in personal and whole sizes, sub sandwiches, salads, and more. BoardWalk Pizza Window has always been a mediocre spot serving average pizza — nothing to write home about but fine to crush some late-night hunger pains. So I was keen to see if it had improved since my last visit.
At the window, diners can spy the pies being made in the back, and if you catch them at a slow time, it’s fun to watch the cast members toss some dough for a while.
Inside you may also see the line-up of pizzas awaiting toppings. 🙂
You’ll find some enhancements at the window, too, including Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Standard stuff you’ll find at any pizza purveyor.
But before I got into the pizza zone, I ordered a Meatball Sub. This sandwich isn’t innovative or creative, but it’s tasty enough. The roll is great — crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.
There’s not much cheese to speak of, which is disappointing. But the four meatballs are sufficient to fill the roll, and the sauce is good.
The meatballs are seasoned pretty liberally, but the flavors are really straightforward and understated. Overall it’s a decent meatball sub, but nothing destination-worthy. This could be good for a picky eater who isn’t in the mood for pizza.
The sub comes with a bag of chips.
Pizzas at the BoardWalk Pizza Window come in two sizes: Personal and Whole. The personal is likely fine for a couple of diners with average appetites. But if you’re a pizza fiend, keep it all for yourself. 😉
I ordered the White Pizza without mushrooms, which means it’s a white pizza thick with cheese and scattered bacon. It took a while to get as the pizzas are made-to-order.
This was good — happily cheesy with some saltiness from the bacon — but nothing “must-get.”

Yeah, we aren’t sending you to BoardWalk Pizza Window for your pizza cravings, but if you’re in the area and must have something to eat immediately, this spot is still convenient. The food is OK, but definitely not crave-worthy. I wouldn’t recommend wasting money and stomach space on it if you can avoid it…but still, it’s nice to see that the Window has improved a bit over the years.
