Fishin’ Hole at Disney’s Port Orleans Offers Inexpensive Fun for the Whole Family

Walt Disney World offers so many fun, inexpensive (a lot of times free!) recreational opportunities for those families and guests looking to take a day off from the parks to relax and unwind.  The Fishin’ Hole at the Port Orleans Resorts is a great example (and guest favorite) of a low-key family fun activity!


This old-fashioned Fishin’ Hole is located at Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside on Ol’ Man Island just behind the Muddy Rivers pool bar. It is open for guests to enjoy 7:00am until 1:45pm (last poles hired out at 1:15pm). The pond is stocked with catfish, blue gill, sunfish and bass.


The quaint fishin’ hole offers traditional cane pole fishing. You can bring your own pole, but in case yours didn’t fit into your suitcase, cane poles are available for rental (bait – worms and hot dogs – are provided). The cost for this activity is $6.39 per person for 30 minutes or $15.39 per family (up to 6 people) for 30 minutes.

All fishing at Disney is catch and release, so be sure to take plenty of photos for those stories told later about “the one that got away.”
