Update on water-related activities at Walt Disney World

Update on water-related activities at Walt Disney World polynesian-village-pools-rec-05

Walt Disney World has released updated information about the availability of their water-related activities; many of these were shut down after last week’s fatal alligator attack. The resort beach areas are still not available to guests. All watercraft is running again; previously the ferry boats were the only forms of water transportation in operation. Guests are now allowed to rent pontoon boats and Boston Whaler boats, but Sea Racers are not available for rent.

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

Movie Under the Stars events at the resorts will be shown inside, instead of out on the beach.

Leah grew up in a little farming town in Illinois, right on the Mississippi River. Her Chicago-born husband, David, left the city for her, and they're now raising their three children (Jacob, Jonah and Lydia) just 12 miles from her hometown. As the Senior Editor of the DIS (wdwinfo.com), Leah spends a lot of time writing about, reading about, and discussing Disney. So, it should come as no surprise that one of her family's favorite ways to spend time is going to Walt Disney World and traveling on Disney Cruise Line. She also enjoys shopping, watching movies with her husband and doing crafts with and for her kids.
