If music is on your mind, enjoy an evening in the bayou at House of Blues, which plays host to big-name rock stars and rising local bands. Virgin Megastore lets you listen to your favourite bands with over 300 CD listening stations or relax with a latte ad look out over the West Side at the elevated, outdoor cafe.
Disney's Boardwalk is a waterfront village with the charm and excitement of the Mid-Atlantic Coast of the 1930's. Atlantic Dance Club will have you swaying to the hottest Latin tunes or stop in at Jellyrolls and sing along to the comedic dueling pianos. Take a stroll around the Boardwalk and stop at one of the carnival games or have your future told by the resident fortune-teller.
