Fishing no longer allowed at Walt Disney World


Since the unfortunate accident a few weeks ago at the Grand Floridian Resort in Walt Disney World there have been steps taken to ensure all of the guests are aware of all potential dangers in and around the water.

First Walt Disney World has installed rope fences with netting around the Seven Seas Lagoon. Next Disney has made sure the no swimming signs are more noticeable and have even added warnings about the wildlife.  Finally the beaches are also more staffed and closed at night, except during fireworks.

Today it was announced that Disney World has recently banned fishing.

“No fishing” signs have been placed near the resorts with access to the water such as Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa, the Fort Wilderness campground, and the Old Key West Resort.

Fishing is now forbidden at Disney World unless it is part of an excursion.

Have you fished at Walt Disney World before? How do you feel about the ban?
