They charge by the hour per boat, up to 5 people per boat. We departed from the Contemporary Resort and were taken out onto Bay Lake. I recommend that you go in the morning... More

As annual passholders to Disney, we've been to the parks numerous times and were hoping to do something different that we haven't done before.

We were staying at the Grand Floridian where our boat picked us up for 2 hours of unlimited water... More
