    One family member is very interested in fishing during our stay at Old Key West in December. I have read about different types. What do you recommend? Any information about fishing there would really be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Welcome Home!

    It's great to have you back with us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Julie!

    The anglers in your group will be happy to learn that Disney Vacation Club actually offers Members a weekly Largemouth Bass Fishing Tournament! Held Thursday mornings from 10 A.M. until 12 Noon on shimmering Bay Lake and Seven Seas Lagoon, this experience allows Members and Guests to compete for two prizes. Don't miss this one!

    If competition is not your style, there are a few other opportunities to cast a line at Walt Disney World Resort. You can cane poll fish from the Fishin' Hole at Old Man Island at Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside, for one. Our daughters fished for the very first time from this location and were quite shocked when they were handed a cup of dirt and live worms for bait. They still laugh about it years later.

    Finally, up to 5-Guests can enjoy a private Bass Fishing Excursion. These depart from several marinas around the property and can be booked up to 180-days in advance. Reserve your space by calling 407-939-BASS or 407-939-2277.

    I hope that's helpful, Julie! Come on back visit us again.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
