We did a 2-hour excursion with our then 5-year-old daughter. Our morning started very early out on the water. We were staying at Bay Lake Tower making our trek to the dock at The Contemporary VERY easy. Just a 5-minute walk and we were out on the water. It was BEAUTIFUL getting to watch the sunrise out of Seven Seas Lagoon!
We opted for live bait that morning, and our guide had NO trouble making sure that all four of us in the boat always had bait on our hook so we could get as many minutes fishing as possible. Our guide did a great job putting us in good spots to have the best chance at getting some fish on the line. I also particularly enjoyed watching the resorts and Magic Kingdom come to life as we were out on the water. We were able to watch the monorails making their first runs through the resort line in and out of the Magic Kingdom.
We had a VERY successful outing if I do say so myself! These are just a couple of my daughter’s catches that morning.
I feel like this is SUCH a fun and unique experience to add to your WDW vacation. The 2-hour excursion was ideal for our 5-year-old. Just enough time to do something new and exciting, grab some breakfast, and then into the theme parks before lunch time!
