Described as a resort that evokes turn-of-the-century boardwalks in coastal cities such as Coney Island and Atlantic City, the BoardWalk Resort has a theme that sets it apart from the rest. This resort has fun carnival games, exciting entertainment, and unique dining.

Earlier this summer along the Boardwalk, demolition took place as the ESPN Club is being reimagined. This location will be replaced with The Cake Bake Shop by Gwendolyn Rogers. This is expected to open in 2023.

Now another piece of Disney Boardwalk history is closing its doors for the last time very soon.

Located in the exquisite Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, Dundy’s Sundries offers many unique souvenirs and gifts. This store is located on the second floor of Disney’s Boardwalk Inn, near the resort lobby. We noticed recently that the operating hours for this resort were very limited.

For some time, Dundy’s Sundries would open at 3:30 pm and only stay open for a few hours. Guests were invited to visit the Screen Door General Store. This location is still on Disney’s Boardwalk, but guests must exit the resort to enter this store. This is a bit inconvenient.

Dundy’s Sundries is such a fun retail location with beautiful merchandise inspired by Disney’s Boardwalk. This store will permanently close on October 3rd. Currently, Disney’s Boardwalk is undergoing a refurbishment. Disney shares that, “Disney’s BoardWalk Inn & Villas is being refurbished, with new offerings, plus updates coming to our Guest rooms, lobby, and more.”

Dundy’s Sundries will close on October 3rd.

It appears that Dundries Sundries is part of this ongoing refurbishment. Soon, a new coffee shop will take the place of this retail location.

Donna has always loved Disney even at an early age. When she was younger her family would joke that she lived in "Donna Land". Even now as an adult, she loves to plan and make magical vacations come to life as she and her family travel "Home" to Walt DisneyWorld. Join her as she brings a little faith, trust, and a little bit of pixie dust to Disney planning.


  1. Better. The bakery is a pain to walk to and in the rain is terrible. As a guest I wanted a coffee and a danish at 7 am and had to brave the rain. Having something connected to the resort is definitely a benefit.

  2. I love the idea. Hopefully you’ll be able to purchase & refill the Disney mugs. It was a real pain to have to walk to the stores on the Boardwalk to refill mugs.

  3. It just doesn’t seem big enough for a coffee shop, unless there will be no seating. It would be nice to have a food area inside the resort, i sead of havi g to always go out of the building. That is the only drawback to BW.

  4. My last visit to this store was extremely frustrating! See the blue polo shirt on the mannequin? I wanted that shirt! They had every size except the size I wear… Large! Turns out that the mannequin was wearing the only large size, and they refused to take it off the mannequin to sell it to me! The shirt was not available in the downstairs location, and not available in the ShopDisney app. So I couldn’t get it. It really was a very nice shirt!
