    Hello again! Does Contemporary resort still offer Parasailing tours? If so CAN I reserve this activity in advance and how far in advance? I can't find the numbers to call and get info on pricing and reservations? Thank you

    Hiya, Caroline! Thanks so much for returning to planDisney with another excellent vacation planning question. I'm here to put my wayfinding skills to the test and track down some information about aquatic adventures at Walt Disney World Resort for you!

    I see that you're planning a stay at Disney's Contemporary Resort this fall--what a great choice! There is a lot to love about this OG Disney hotel and you will not be disappointed! I stayed at the Contemporary last fall as part of our planDisney training trip and was obsessed with the subtle room theming inspired by The Incredibles. The walking path to Magic Kingdom Park is a game-changer, too!

    Unfortunately, Caroline, parasailing and the other action-packed water sports that used to be offered at Sammy Duval's Marina at the hotel are no longer available. I learned this myself recently and was pretty bummed--I have such fond memories of taking waterskiing lessons on Bay Lake with my husband (spoiler alert: I was terrible). However, there are still plenty of ways to get out on the water all around Walt Disney World!

    • The Contemporary and select other resorts offer motorized boat rentals for groups of up to 10 Guests. Set sail for a leisurely cruise around the lakes and lagoons for a relaxing break from the bustle of the theme parks!
    • For a more active outing, check out the catch-and-release fishing excursions departing from the Contemporary (and other resorts, too!). With an expert guide helping you navigate the waters of Seven Seas Lagoon and Bay Lake, you'll love this unique experience.
    • Since I know you're keen on catching Happily Ever After, the nighttime fireworks spectacular at the Magic Kingdom, I think you would love Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise! You'll enjoy a ride on one of the iconic Disney ferryboats and a selection of tasty treats before taking up your prime viewing location for the show. This is a really popular experience, so advance reservations are a must. 
    Caroline, I hope this information is just what you need for your planning purposes! Please stop by planDisney again anytime if we can help with other tips to make your October getaway one to remember. 

    See Ya Real Soon!
