Waterways (Boating, Fishing, etc.)—Water, water everywhere—and lots of things to do! You can rent boats at nearly every deluxe and moderate resort and Disney Springs. Probably the most popular rental craft are little, two-person speed boats called Sea Raycers—the old Water Mice were replaced by these more up-to-date craft. They’re available at most marinas around Disney for $32 per half-hour, $40 for 45 minutes; $45 for 60 minutes (driver must be 12+ and at least 60” tall to pilot with an adult, or 16+ with a driver’s license to pilot alone; 320 lb. max, two persons per boat, weight limit per boat). Fishing excursions and cane pole rentals are also available in most of those same places. A bass fishing program allows guests to reserve two-hour, guided, catch-and-release bass expeditions at many Disney marinas. All equipment is provided (even a digital camera to document your catch), fishing licenses are not needed thanks to the state-licensed guide on board, and participants even get a free subscription to Bassmaster Magazine. Excursions accommodate up to five guests and cost $200–$230. Phone 407-WDW-BASS for info.
ESPN Wide World of Sports—Disney’s state-of-the-art athletic center features a 9,500-seat baseball stadium, 70,000- and 80,000-square-foot fieldhouses, a track & field complex, volleyball, tennis, baseball, softball, football, and more. In 2005, Disney added another 20 acres of baseball, softball, and multi-sport fields. The complex hosts 180 youth, amateur, and professional sporting events annually. General admission is $16/adults or $11/kids 3–9, but tickets for professional sporting events are typically more money. The 220-acre center is also the home of the Atlanta Braves Spring Training. For more information, call 407-828-FANS (recorded information), or 407-939-1500 (to speak with a person), or visit http:// www.disneyworldsports.com.
