Water Related Activities Update at Walt Disney World


Many water related activities at Walt Disney World Resort were suspended after last week’s tragic alligator attack at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort. All resort beach areas remain closed to guests as fences along with new warning signs are being installed along waterways throughout the area.

All water transportation has resumed operation including resort water taxis and ferry boats. Guests can once again rent pontoon and Boston Whaler boats. However, watersport activities such as parasailing, water skiing, wake boarding/surfing, tubing and personal watercraft rentals through Sammy Duvall’s Watersports Centre are still not available.

Guests are not allowed to use their own fishing equipment on any resort waterway and may only fish in designated areas. Fishing excursions on Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake prior to 9:00am have been cancelled.

Lastly, the nighttime event “Movie Under the Stars” will be shown indoors rather than outside on the beach. No word if this is a permanent change or not.
