    You mean besides eating??
    There's surrey bikes that you can rent and ride completely around Crescent Lake. There's the ESPN Club if you like sports games or watching sports on TV. There is live entertainment on the Boardwalk, like jugglers, card sharks and fortune tellers, but I think they're limited to weekends. You can see a schedule and description of events on Steve Soares' site: http://pages.prodigy.net/stevesoares/
    There's also carnival type games that cost money, but I wouldn't recommend those. Jellyrolls is good if you like sing-along music. There's a cover charge after 8 or 9 pm. See you there!

    Does anyone know if Jellyrolls still allows smoking?

    Not sure how Jellyrolls got around the Florida law, but almost every other club and lounge at WDW does not allow smoking. I guess that's why we haven't gone there!

    Me either, and I've been wanting to.

    We had sooo much fun in Barrel of Laughs on the Disney Wonder where they had Dueling Pianos for a couple nights. We loved it! We wanted to try Jellyrolls, but the smoke has been keeping us away from it.

    Oh well...guess we'll need to do another Disney cruise instead.

    Jellyrolls is not owned by Disney. I believe if a bar does not sell or offer food they are allowed to have smokers Disney decided to play it safe and ban smoking at all their bars

    I was wondering what the deal at WDW was when my son-in-law and I were looking to have a cigar and brandy after dinner at Shula's in April. Shula's has a humidor (all cigars are about twice retail), but you can't smoke anywhere in the hotel or lounge. We were told we could smoke outside.

    Thanks for the tip about Jellyrolls.

    If they have a good enough ventilation system, you can't tell that they allow smoking. I have been to some clubs that allow smoking and when I got home, my clothes didn't have thta nasty stale smoky smell to them.

    I've never been to Jellyrolls, but I would guess that they would have an adequate ventilation system to handle the smoke.

    Unfortunately for some, it's not just about the smell of the smoke that is bothersome. How effective is a good ventilation system against someone sitting right next to you, say the next table, smoking?

    The casinos in Vegas have a good ventilation system IMHO, but when someone sits next to you and decides to light up...you either move or deal with it. This has been my experience, and I avoid places that allow smoking...makes life easier for me.

    We always enjoy sitting outside at the Big River Grill for dinner and watching everyone go by. Especially when the performers come by. However, the last time, they seated a party of smokers next to use and we didn't enjoy it.

    Also, the chocolate/vanilla pretzel cookies from the Boardwalk Bakery are worth the trip alone!

    I also enjoy sitting on the Boardwalk, watching the crowds go by (in fact, the introduction to my book was written in a notepad while sitting outside the Sweet shop - with some Peanut Butter and Chocolate Fudge, of course)

    I really enjoy JellyRolls, and last year the night I went turned out to be the best night, cause my soap guys (GH) were there. I spotted them and started taking picture from afar, I at first thought I was seeing things then Greg came over and brought me a drink and my husband and him hit it off, and were doing shots of Tequila at the bar, I know he was hurting the next day when he had to do the SSW at MGM. I got to me Tyler and Nat too they are really cool.

    The Boardwalk is ok

    The boardwalk is ok but i would much rather go get some Ice cream Beacher and Cream. then walk around with it around the Epcot resorts. thats only if the parks close early.
