Earlier this summer, Disney announced some major changes that were coming to the BoardWalk area of Walt Disney World Resort. The BoardWalk is located in the EPCOT Resort area between Disney’s Hollywood Studios and EPCOT. The BoardWalk also has three incredible hotels along its path — Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, The Yacht Club, and The Beach Club. Guests who visit the BoardWalk are immediately transported to a classic Northeastern Boardwalk, complete with great dining, live entertainment, and fun activities for the entire family.

One of the changes Disney announced for the BoardWalk was the closing of the BoardWalk Bakery and the opening of a new and modern BoardWalk Deli. The BoardWalk Deli will feature a menu inspired by diner classics from New York and New Jersey. Now, we have a first look at some of the delectable items coming to the deli. Let’s take a look at the menu, first shared by Disney Parks Blog!

Like any great deli, all the different breads and bagels at the new BoardWalk Deli will be baked fresh daily. Alongside your scrumptious sandwich will also be a fresh and crunchy pickle, also made in-house! Sandwiches will also be served with house-made potato chips, creamy coleslaw, or fresh-made soup.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to visit this new deli and indulge in one (or five) of the amazing desserts. And who even knows where to start when it comes to the sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!

What are you most looking forward to trying at Disney’s BoardWalk Deli?
